北区平野/金閣寺南側 借景を愉しむ家

House with a Borrowed Scenery

The property we'd like to introduce this time is located inside an aisle at the back of the entrance to Kinkaku Elementary School, which is quite a unique location.

The west side of the property faces the cremation mound of Emperor Go-Suzaku. With the panoramic view, rooms on the 2nd floor have good ventilation with plenty of sunlight, which is the biggest attraction of this house.
In spring, the pink cherry blossoms in the center of the mound bloom beautifully, you can enjoy the full-bloomed scenery from the 2nd floor of this property.

It is a nostalgic house that retains the atmosphere of the Showa era, just like a typical grandparents' house in Japan. Showa-Kataita glasses* are used for windows and sliding doors, which also deliver the ambiance of Showa architecture.

Although it is sitting on a rebuilding prohibited site that cannot be rebuilt when demolished, it is recommended for those who like "Showa retro buildings" and "people who like interiors and DIY home projects".

Feel free to contact us if this property touches you!

*Glass with various decorations made in Showa is called Showa-Kataita glass (Showa patterned glass). Since the pattern has irregularities, it allows light to enter the room softly and blocks the eyesight from the other side moderately.
The windowpane "Tsuta (Ivy)", which has been often used on the 2nd floor of this property, is a representative pattern glassed of the Showa era that was very broadly used as an auspicious plant due to the strength of its vitality to breed and prosper by being entwined with trees.

  • Panoramic view at the west
  • Tatami room on 2nd floor
  • Showa-Kataita glass, Tsuta (Ivy)
  • Showa-Kataita glass
  • Showa-Kataita glass, Sasa (bamboo)
