Sakaigawa is 1 of 3 prestigious areas nestling in the foothills of Sapporo’s western mountain range. Situated just to the left of Asahigaoka park, this house is secluded yet provides easy access to the city center: just 15 minutes away by car.
Prices in this area have stayed low and are still very affordable.
The views of the city from the living room and adjacent bathroom are some of the very best in the area; a panoramic view of almost the whole city from up on high.
The sense of openness in this house is worth mentioning. The bathroom is built like a Japanese sento but with a modern maintenance free bathtub, it has stunning views of greenery and the city scape.
Looking at the house you will notice that sharp corners have been avoided, the plasterwork in the rooms is rounded, the ceilings follow the same pattern and this creates a sense of comfort and relaxation. You can see it on the garage door surround, the builder avoided sharp edges and it gives the home a softer almost Hobbit like appearance.
This concrete house, which has all modern conveniences and comes with a grand piano, was completed in 2012 but looks and feels brand new.
