Karuizawa | Minamihara Shiozawa
Shiozawa Street, which intersects with the National Route 18 Bypass at the Shiozawa intersection, is commonly known as “Gourmet Street” and is home to internationally renowned French, Italian, and Japanese restaurants. To the east and west of Gourmet Street, the forest villa area of Minamihara spreads out, making it one of the destinations for those who wish to enjoy a gastronomical experience while admiring the forest.
This property is a newly built house for sale (scheduled for completion in June 2023) in a subdivision located about 100 meters east of the Shiozawa intersection. The property is located just off the national highway, but there are rental houses along the highway, so this building is not directly visible from the highway.
The house is designed and being built using the “air-pass” construction method, which allows the building to breathe by allowing “air” to “pass” between the exterior and interior walls. This structure allows moisture to escape and keeps the house warm in winter and cool in summer. There is a breathing window in the attic, which can be manually opened and closed. Please check it out for yourself when you are ready to view the house. In Karuizawa, which is known for its high humidity, moisture control is important to ensure the longevity of the house. While many house owners use a number of dehumidifiers in operation to prevent moisture, a house with the air-path construction method is a smart way to achieve this purpose.
The house's floor plan features a free space on the south side of the second floor and balconies on both sides. Ideal usage of it should be a remote work space.
We are open for tours even during construction. Looking forward to hearing from interested buyer customers.
