Kamakura Sanki-en Estate

Vacant Land, 7,693.54 sqm
Fueda, Kamakura City
230,000,000 Yen
(30,000 Yen/sqm)

This is a large 7,600 sqm block of residential land in Kamakura that was originally the estate of Tsusai Sugahara (1894-1981), a famous Japanese industrialist and developer Japan’s first tollroad which ran between Ofuna and Enoshima in the 1930s. In 1929, Sugahara relocated a grand samurai residence dating from the 1620s to the land.

After his passing, his wife operated the house as a high-end restaurant called Sanki-en for several years. The restaurant closed over 15 years ago and the building fell into ruin. The building was purchased by a local company and carefully relocated over the span of 12 months in 2014 to a new location in Chigasaki.

The land is located at the end of a private road. Thanks to its elevated position, distance from neighbours and abundance of trees, an owner can enjoy privacy and tranquility.

The land is to be sold vacant with no plans attached, and buyers are free to build their own building, provided it complies with local regulations. This would be an ideal block to build a spacious private residence or even to relocate a traditional and historic Japanese kominka.

The 7,600 sqm lot includes flat land of approximately 2,094 sqm, sloping land of 5,163 sqm and a road area of 435 sqm.
