Oi, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo
This is a historic western-style house located in Tokyo’s Shinagawa ward. The exact age of the house is unknown, although it appears to date from the early Showa period (around the 1930s).
The single-story wood-frame home is in largely original condition, although some additions have been added over the years. An extensive renovation project is required. The interior is a mix of Japanese and western style with all bedrooms fitted with tatami mats, while the formal dining and living room finished with wooden floors and wainscoting.
The house has a total registered floor area of 117.35 sqm (1,263 sq.ft) and sits on a 423 sqm block of freehold land. There is no garage or car entrance.
Large parts of the Oi neighborhood managed to escape damage during WWII air raids. The area was once home to grand houses on large allotments with big gardens, but rapid economic growth following WWII has seen many of these large estates subdivided into small homes catering to the growing middle-class. A single large home once sat next-door to this home on the western boundary, but has since been replaced with 15 homes and flats.
