Enjoy nature and the changing seasons
A house that nourishes your mind and life

The Shichiku area in Kita Ward, an old residential area where nature and history are fused.

This is an over 90-year-old house built in the early Showa period, standing quietly at the end of a private approach.
Surrounded by gardens on both the north and south sides, it will be a pleasant space that takes in natural sunlight and wind with the greens.
The spacious interior has a large number of rooms and two stairs, making it a considerable choice for large families or a two-family house.

A property where you can enjoy the change of season, soak up the sunshine and start a comfortable life with your beloved ones.

Suggested Renovation Plan

“A brand new stay starting from this gate”

Live like a vacation

When I first went to see the house,
the neighbor kindly called out to me in a gentle voice.
Time was flowing so calmly and serenely that
I started to imagine how nice would it be to live a slow life here.

a life with your favorite family around
a life with your beloved ones around
a life with your favorite friends around

If you can feel a little extraordinary day by day,
every day becomes a fresh and comfy "new stay".

リノベーションプラン リノベーションプラン
Luxurious scenery created by two gardens that
fuse the large indoor and outdoor spaces

After entering the gate, the first thing you will notice is the stone approach on the floor, slowly leading to the front yard that allows you to forget the bustle of the city.
The Japanese-style front yard with scenic stones and gravel gently welcomes visitors also performs as a place to serve the guests.

The 1st floor will be a spacious and open living-dining-kitchen, which not only serves as a common space for the whole family but also for individual members to enjoy a relaxing me-time.

Another large garden connected to LDK at the back is like a "resort garden".
Here you can place some chic garden furniture on a wood deck, plant a symbol tree that shields the summer sun, add romantic garden lighting to lit up the night, etc. A gorgeous place as if you are staying in a resort hotel that heals your everyday life.

Current Plan

現状の間取り 現状の間取り

A spacious floor plan with two rows of rooms across the corridor on the first floor.
By the entrance is a calm Japanese garden with the old stone lantern and "Tsukubai" stone water bowl preserved.
Facing the front yard is a Japanese-style room and the living room. You may remodel them into an integrated space as a living-dining room where a large number of family members can gather and relax.

Since this property has two stairs, a floor plan that fits the different life-style of individual family members can be considered.
For example, using the inner part of the 2nd floor as bedrooms for the parents and children, and setting a public zone such as a study or working space/office on the front.
A property that can be used as a two-family house that keeps each household's privacy. It would be also nice to invite guests to stay from overseas and start your host family life!
