Ro-An was designed for a multi-generational family to regroup and reconnect. The name Ro-An 炉庵 means "Hearth Retreat”, and indeed is a perfect place to curl up with family in front of the large gas fireplace. Sourcing top quality natural materials was a priority, and the warm colours of Western red cedar and Douglas fir really add to the alpine atmosphere. The flared roofline adds architectural panache.
For those who like to spread out and enjoy their holiday, Ro-An is the ideal villa. Under vaulted timber ceilings, luxuriate in the generous living and dining areas. Cook up a feast in the expansive kitchen, using Miele oven and microwave, IH cooktop, and wine cellar. The balcony is protected on three sides, an ideal place for dining al fresco, or just enjoying a nice cup of tea.
The media room is tucked away from the main living area, perfect for the little ones to enjoy a movie. The top floor master bedroom and second master bedroom are very spacious under vaulted ceilings. The bunk room sleeps four people comfortably, and two more bedrooms can be configured as singles or a king. Ro-An features a rare double car garage, as well as an expansive workshop for the owner to tinker away on projects.
Ro-An is surrounded to the rear by a mature Hokkaido forest and a small stream, making the back yard like a private playground. The quiet forested views are best enjoyed from the Japanese spa bath. Located in the quiet Izumikyo neighbourhood of Niseko-Hirafu Village. Please see our accommodation page to book your holiday at Ro-An.
