A property with a typical Machiya-like long and deep layout. There is also a separate annex further in the back, where so much potential can be seen in the high-ceilinged room that runs through to the 2F. Since the property is located near Nishijin, perhaps it was a workshop for Nishijin textiles...? It is tempting to imagine and think back to this building that has seen a variety of history. The land area of this Machiya is more than 100sqm, making it a considerable choice as a residence that combines work and home.
