Higashiyama log house is a beautifully presented home on a corner block surrounded by mature birch trees. The property can be found in the Higashiyama/ Niseko Village area, which is developing as Niseko’s last available pocket of resort side residences. With only a handful of standalone residential opportunities this close to the ski runs of Niseko Village ( “ Banzai Chair “ ), all buyers looking for an immaculate investment should look at this opportunity.
Close by you will find a small expanding collection of restaurants and bars within walking distance along with some of the area’s best culinary options within a 5-minute drive away from the house. The free shuttle bus to Niseko Village is located 350 meters from the property with the surrounding ski areas (Niseko Village, Annupuri, Moiwa) only a 5 minute drive away.
The current owners renovated this home to such a high standard which can be seen as soon as you walk through the door. The hallway is fully set up for winter sports with a well thought out spacious drying area for all of your family's winter gear. From here you will enter the ground floor with its open-plan living/dining/kitchen areas.
The western kitchen features a full-size Electrolux oven, four-burner gas cooktop, full-size Electrolux dishwasher, double-door Hitachi refrigerator with ice maker and double-sink and mixer tap directly in front of a large window with views to the forest. The kitchen is well-specked with plenty of storage, soft opening drawers & cupboards along with a solid wood island bench for those family meals and chats after a big day on the mountain.
On this level you will also find the cozy living room with a leather lounge along two sides, a wood burning fireplace, giant (removable) traditional double-pane Finnish window system and fully varnished pine floorboards. Without any dividing posts ,the lounge and kitchen are a massive warm space featuring the wood burner as the centerpiece.
The upper level has two closed-door bedrooms. The master is large enough for a King size bed and features a large window to take in the views, along with overhead storage. The second bedroom at the northern end of the house has direct views to the ski slopes of Niseko Village. This room can fit two single beds or a queen-sized double.
There is also a large loft on this level and with some good design, the whole top floor could be remodeled to make three good-sized bedrooms and an additional bathroom.
Recent developments in the area (such as the ultra-popular Koa, Snowdog condominiums and luxury hotel La Plume) have helped elevate pricing in the immediate area. Recent sales in nearby developments provide clear metrics showing Hihashiyama Log House as a great investment property that will ultimately show good capital growth.
