Property description

Private and exclusive. Designed by the owner/architect, the house is located in the sought-after residential area of Ebisu/Meguro. Family-friendly in terms of layout, spaciousness, and location. Open and airy with natural lights and colors throughout, the house is a beautiful expression of clean minimalism with modern yet warm aesthetic.

Walk within minutes to Westin Hotel (an airport Limousine Bus stop to/from airports), subway stations (Ebisu Station and Meguro Station with multiple subway lines, including JR Yamanote Line directly to popular designations without transfers), 6 supermarkets, convenience stores, , Ebisu Garden Place, and Mitsukoshi Department Store (with an upscale food market on the B2 level) . Just one stop to Shibuya and four stops to Shinjuku on JR Yamanote Line. Area map with recommendations to neighborhood places will be provided.

The house is constructed with reinforced concrete in 2009 for our family. Enjoy all three floors of spacious living space, with two full baths on separate levels for complete privacy (and no more queuing for the bathroom while on vacation!). A truly modern, wonderfully appointed house in the heart of Tokyo! Perfect for families looking for a little luxury and with good design in mind! :)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We moved to Tokyo a few years ago from the U.S.. Being an architect, we decided to build our own house there with a layout and atmosphere that best suit our life style by combining the western style with Japanese elements.

Why the Owner Chose Meguro, Tokyo, Japan:
We absolutely love the location and this lovely neighborhood. Unlike most typical central Tokyo houses, we have a unique lot with openness and sunlight from all directions. We designed and built our home just over in 2009 and it has been immaculately maintained. The house has been published in several architectural/ interior magazines and has won an architectural design award. Due to our move, we are pleased to offer it to travelers visiting Tokyo.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Other than the superb location, we enjoyed the light-filled spaces throughout the house with modern yet warm ambiance. The Meguro River nearby is a very popular cherry blossom destination with spectacular view of the sakura trees along the river. Strolling or jogging along the canal is another activity to enjoy. We especially love the convenience of walking to Ebisu Garden Place with the spacious ground for kids to run around and for family dining with endless choices. Meguro Station area offers more local/traditional food and atmosphere. You can also walk to the trendy Nakameguro/Daikanyama area within 15-20 minutes. Transportation from and to the airports is extremely easy as you can walk to Westin Hotel (a limousine bus stop) at Ebisu Garden Place in 5 minutes from the house.
