Shirokanedai, Minato-ku, Tokyo
*This apartment sold in January 2016 and is no longer available*
Shirokanedai Front is a 14-storey condominium located alongside Meguro Dori Street – a pleasant street lined with shops and with the rarity of having buried power-lines instead of overhead cables. The rear of the building overlooks the grounds of Happo-en. This is a historically wealthy part of the Shirokane neighbourhood. Located nearby is the historic Institute of Public Health, which was built in 1938 with the generous donation from the Rockefeller Foundation, as wells as the estate of the former Seiko Residence, which was purchased by a Singapore developer.
The building was designed by Archi Site Mobius and completed in 2002. There are just 21 apartments on the 14 floors.
This is a 2-Bedroom corner apartment on the 10th floor. It includes two balconies, and has a south-east facing living room with uninterrupted views of Happo-en. Both bedrooms have walk-in closets. The interior was renovated by Kagami Reform in September 2015. Renovations included new flooring in the living/dining, new wood decking on the balcony, kitchen counters, carpeting in the bedrooms and tile in the hallway.
Ceiling heights in the living/dining are up to 2,600mm, and 2,500mm in the bedrooms.
One car park (machine parking) is included with the apartment.
Car park size:
- L: 5,300mm
- W: 2,050mm
- H: 1,550mm
- Weight: 2,300kg
The building is managed by Sumisho Tatemono. Pets are negotiable (some restrictions apply).
In the Edo period this site was originally the mansion of Okubo Hikozaemon. It later became the Daimyo residence for the Satsuma Domain, then the villa for the Shimazu clan. In the Meiji period it was the home of Seiichiro Shibusawa, an industrialist and cousin of Eiichi Shibusawa, the ‘father of Japanese capitalism’ and founder of what is now Mizuho Bank. The current building and 40,000 sqm grounds were created in 1915 for Fusanosuke Kuhara, entrepreneur and politician. After WWII, Kuhara converted his home into a traditional Japanese restaurant that would appeal to foreign visitors.
