Villa Kita no Kuni: A Blend of History, Modern Comforts, and Fireside Warmth
Nestled within the prestigious Izumikyo estate in Niseko Hirafu, Villa Kita no Kuni stands as a testament to time and tradition. Built in 1991 and named after a beloved Furano TV show, this property encapsulates the essence of local cultural heritage.
Set on an expansive 775 sqm of prime land, Villa Kita no Kuni offers more than just a residence; it provides an unrivaled experience. The property presents an awe-inspiring panorama of Mount Yotei, a constant reminder of the breathtaking natural beauty that surrounds it.
Originally crafted as a central house with two studio apartments, the residence underwent a thoughtful transformation eleven years ago. The renovation introduced a master bedroom with an ensuite, seamlessly blending modern comfort with the property's historic charm. Notably, a fully self-contained studio remains an integral part of the building, offering additional flexibility and potential.
Modern amenities abound, including a wood-burning fireplace for cozy winter evenings, a new heating system for added warmth, an upgraded kitchen for culinary enthusiasts, and a spacious basement storage area for practical convenience. An external all-weather screen room beckons residents to enjoy the stunning surroundings year-round.
In terms of accessibility, Villa Kita no Kuni is well-connected, serviced by both Hanozono and Hirafu bus shuttles, ensuring seamless travel within the community.
Currently, the property stands as a sound investment, generating consistent income through long-term rentals at 350,000 JPY per month. With the lease set to conclude in October next year, the potential for increased rental income, reaching 550,000 JPY per month, adds a lucrative dimension for prospective buyers.
Villa Kita no Kuni invites discerning individuals to be a part of its unique narrative, offering a lifestyle that seamlessly merges tradition with modernity. Whether as a cherished family home, an income-generating property, or a strategic investment for future development, this residence is a testament to architectural excellence and the promise of a remarkable living experience in the heart of Niseko Hirafu
If you don't know about Niseko yet... where have you been? Best known for the incredible amounts of light, dry powder that blankets the resort each season, with an annual snowfall average of around 15 metres, Niseko has grown beyond the snow into Asia’s most international winter resort, with accommodation and F&B to suit all tastes and budgets, a vibrant nightlife and a comprehensive range of English-language services.
The growth in popularity has been driven not only by the frankly unbelievable amount of snow, but by the development of hotels and homes that have truly turned this mountain resort into the Aspen of Asia. Demand for holiday accommodation is at an all-time high, but ski-in ski-out properties always generate the best occupancy and the highest nightly rates over winter.
This truly is a unique opportunity to develop the next, and best, ski-in ski-out property in the top ski resort in Asia.
