Surrounded by forest and farmlands, this luxurious property is situated in the somewhat remote and quiet Soga area of Niseko town.

Its easily recognized Japanese modern architecture is defined by its exterior Hokkaido cedar louvers that allow both privacy and views at the back of the house and creates its bow shape, as well as the Hokkaido cedar cladding accentuated by sulfuric acid treated galvanized steel frame around the front balcony.

In the living/ dining on the first floor, the beholder’s eye is pulled both inwards toward the central insert log fireplace and outwards through the floor to ceiling windows that offer an unmissable 270° view of the surrounding forest, and lit landscaping at night. The outdoor experience is reinforced by the engawa porch-like overhung balcony on 3 sides of the property and its covered barbecue terrace.

With its genuine Japanese bathroom finished with tiles and hinoki timber, its 4 bedrooms, garage and maid’s room, this property is ready for large groups and families’ stay.
