Kudankita Designer House

175,100,000 Yen

3-Bedrooms + 1 Bathroom
Kudankita, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo

This is a 5-storey, architect-designed freestanding house located just north of the Imperial Palace in central Tokyo. Kudankita House was designed by architectural firm Sakane Keikaku Sekkei and completed in 2004. It was featured in Casa BRUTUS magazine in 2005.

The 17-meter tall, steel-frame home has a total floor area of 105.59 sqm (1,136 sq ft), with each floor about 20 ~ 21 sqm in size. The ground floor has a kitchen and dining area, while the 2nd, 4th and 5th floors have a bedroom each. The bathroom takes up the 3rd floor, while toilets are located on the 2nd and 4th floors. There are three bedrooms in total, but one of the bedrooms could be used as a living area. There is no elevator and no car parking, although it may be possible to lease a monthly car park in the neighborhood (subject to availability).

To add a touch of luxury to an otherwise small area, high-grade finishes were used, such as mahogany, padauk and ovangkol hardwood.

The house, which is sandwiched between two office buildings, sits on a 41 square meter (446 sq ft) block of freehold land and fronts onto a 14 meter wide street.

It would suit someone looking for a slightly more unusual pied-à-terre for when they are in Tokyo. It is in a great central location, with three train stations and eight different train lines all within walking distance. It is primarily a business-district and is 350 meters to the Imperial Palace moat. It is a 25 ~ 30 minute stroll alongside the moat to the Otemachi/Marunouchi Business district in front of Tokyo Station, or 10 minutes by taxi. Alternatively, take one of the Chiyoda Community Bicycles from the rental station 70 meters down the street from the house and explore the neighbourhood.

Although this area is now a densely packed commercial zone, in the 1600s it was part of a Samurai’s estate, and in the early 1900s it was home to several large and grand residences. The Philippine Ambassador’s Residence, located 180 meters away, was built in 1935 for Zenzaburo Yasuda, a businessman, politician and grandfather of Yolo Ono. And, just up the street is the Spanish-style former residence of Mankichi Yamaguchi, which was built in 1927 and remains in largely original condition.

Next-door to the house is the Tsukudo Shrine, which is located underneath an office building.
