A 2-Bedroom designer-style home with study and rooftop terrace is currently listed for sale in the Minamiazabu neighbourhood in central Tokyo.
The 3-storey concrete house was built in 1994, and later given a contemporary makeover by the current owner. Extra attention was paid to the rooftop which was converted by Vacation Veranda, Tokyo-based design firm specialising in outdoor spaces, into an entertaining deck with two seating areas and a full-sized barbecue. Located at about the height of the 4th floor, this is a sunny spot which offers views of Tokyo Tower.
The 1st floor has a full bathroom, toilet, and a study or home office which can also be accessed directly from the garage. The garage is secure with an automatic shutter door, and offers some additional space at the rear for bicycles.
The living area and kitchen is on the second floor, along with a second toilet. The open-plan kitchen includes an island counter, gas cooktop, wall-mounted oven, and a laundry space hidden around the corner.
