Kyoto Real Estate & Art
This property is located in Kyoto, the former imperial capital city of Japan for over 1000 years, also known for a place which nestles one of the largest collection of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. With its unique beauty of narrow cobbled lanes surrounded with ryoteis, traditional wooden townhouse, ryokans, shrines, temples, traditional independent stores and iconic wandering Geikos and Maikos, this property sits in history.
Upon its completion of renovation the property was to be marketed to an exclusive circle in 2016. With its one of a kind traditional Japanese garden of bamboo and white gravel, which beautifully reflected the sunlight, and with a contrast of a blue sky and pink cherry blossoms, the property resembled that of a truly heavenly place. As part of its renovation a matured Shidare - sakura (Cherry Blossom) and Ume tree was specially selected and planted in position to be viewed privately from within the house, a true testament of luxury in traditional Japanese culture. Furthermore the refurbishment of a private tearoom and historic stone lantern monument (recorded as far back as 1185) being listed as one of the 100 exquisite stone lanterns in Japan, added exceptional value to the property.
