Hachise Renovation

Green River Building

ABOUTCuddle indoors with lush vegetation through the window

The name "Green River Building" comes from its large window overlooking the lovely roadside greenery.

This beautifully renovated three storey building is located in a very pleasant area, and the residents have the option to relax and take advantage of nature's beauty while staying at home or take a short 10 minute walk to the Kamogawa River.

PLANA three storey building with storefront and residential floors

This three-storey building overlooks the Shimei street with beautiful roadside trees. The first floor is currently in skeleton state where the owner has the option to lease this space out to tenants for shops or offices. The 2nd and 3rd floor are residential floors that take in the beautiful views of lush vegetation this area has to offer. On a nice day, residents can enjoy a panoramic view from the rooftop while having a barbecue or watching a movie on a large screen.

This property was renovated in March of 2019.
New facilities: Bathroom, kitchen, toilet and washroom.
Replaced items: Water supply and drainage pipes, gas pipes, outer wall (repaired and painted), waterproofing of the roof, balcony, new setting of fixtures (outside/interior) and interior decoration.

Since Shimei street is only a short road, with Horikawa street to the west and Kamokaido street along the Kamogawa River, there is not much traffic in the area.

Most of the trees that are planted on Shimei street, such as the Ginkgo tree and Zelkova tree, change colors during the seasons. From the freshly green leaves in the summer, to yellow and red leaves in the fall, residents will feel the warm welcoming of the changes in seasons.



A naturally shaded living and dining room

With its calm gray walls pairing with the wooden interior, this room has a classy touch.
After walking up the stairs, you will reach the LDK area (Living, Dining and Kitchen). In this area, residents can experience a pleasant view from the large windows. A great feature this room has to offer is the natural shading. As the sun does not directly hit the room, residents can enjoy the natural sunlight without the heat beaming through the window.


Bedroom floor to enjoy nature from indoors

The bedroom floor comes with many unique and charming points. One of them being the view of the roadside trees. From early summer when the trees grow thick, the view from the bedroom window looks like a floating green sea. As with the room on the 2nd floor, the pairing of the gray and wooden interior gives this room the warm and classy feeling.


Enjoy the freedom of the rooftop

The rooftop can be used as a place for gatherings. For example, residents can set up a sofa or table and enjoy lunch under Kyoto's clear blue sky. Other events such as barbecues, setting up a screen for a movie, or even experiencing Kyoto's Gozan Okuribi Ritual Fires in the summer are all great ideas.


Storefront facing Shimei Street

As the first floor is in the skeleton state, it is versatile for renovation. Owners can choose to use or lease this space as a shop, office or even as additional storage. The entrance for the residence is on the south side.

LIFESTYLEUsing it as a second house

Using this property as a second house is another option. The rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors are compact but spacious. When you are away, you may also consider these rooms for monthly rental.
