Nestled amongst a mature stand of larch trees, it is the perfect choice for a family looking for privacy, luxury, and easy access to Hirafu Village.

Built with precision and attention to detail by HOP, one of Hokkaido's top builders and a regular collaborator on Taiga's projects, one can feel the quality even as you drive into the house. Beautiful ash post and beam work, fine millwork in the tatami room, and the Sapporo lava stone on the double-sided fireplace jump out. Behind the walls is a commitment to insulation and air tightness, bringing real tranquility when you close the doors.
The landscaping is designed to take advantage of the almost 4,000 sqm site. A large patio with jacuzzi is the ideal place to soak after a long day of skiing, or enjoy summer BBQ. A vegetable garden and numerous points for planting flowers benefit from Hokkaido's verdant soil.
The 4 fully ensuited bedrooms and tatami room all feature stunning views over the farm and across to Mt. Yotei, and the 2 master bedrooms are more generous in size than a typical Niseko chalet. The kitchen features full size appliances and generous counter space to cook up a hearty feast.
A designated care-taker's suite, with its own kitchenette and bathroom and separate exterior entrance, provides flexibility for hiring staff to take care of the estate.
Located just 5 minutes drive from Hirafu Village center, the house is walking distance to local restaurants like Ichimura Soba, L'Ocanda, Ginrei Udon, Guzu Guzu Bakery.
