Roji Machiya in the City Center

Quite alley-life in the city center close to the station

Located in a convenient area with just a 5-minute walk from Subway Tozai line Nijojo-mae Station and a 10-minute walk from Subway Karasuma line Karasuma-Oike Station, this unrenovated machiya is recommended for both residence and investment.

- renovation plan -

A proposal of living in a Machiya.

Concept: "Machiya sandwiched between 2 Tsuboniwa gardens"

In this plan, 2 Tsuboniwa gardens are located at the entrance and the back of the house. You can enjoy the garden view from both the dining room and living room, and also a fantastic atmosphere when lit up at night. A vacation house that welcomes you back to Kyoto, with Tsuboniwa gardens that helps you relax and get away from everyday life.
We keep the Tatami room on the 2F and planned to make it a Machiya with a Japanese taste. Toilets can be found on both floors for easy living.

  • Picture shown is for illustrative purpose only. The above plan is one of the examples of renovation.
  • This property is NOT sold under renovated conditions.
  • Please contact us for introductions of architects, designers and renovation contractors.
