Home near Daitokuji Temple

Away from the urban noise, here is a compact home in a tranquil alley.
Despite its proximity to historical sites like Daitokuji Temple and Kenkun Shrine, the area is delightful for strolls with the emergence of new shops.

The building underwent renovations in March 2019, ensuring a pleasant living experience with updated facilities such as the bathroom, kitchen, and toilet.

A versatile property worth considering for residential purposes, a secondary base in Kyoto, a second home for tourism, or an investment property for rental income.

    Soba noodles and Cuisine "Itsutsu"
    (approx. 220m / 3 mins. walk)
