A villa supervised by “Safari” has finally been completed in Naka-Karuizawa!
Karuizawa has been loved as a summer resort by businessmen and literary figures since the Meiji era. In recent years, top runners of various genres such as artists and creators have chosen this area as a place to live in two bases. Among them, a villa produced by “Safari” has been renovated and unveiled in one section of the Sengataki West district of Karuizawa, which is considered to be a high class.
The exterior walls are painted black with rice pine, and the exterior stairs and other areas are finished with black ironwork for a chic finish.Designed to blend in with the landscape created by the aged trees
Among the Karuizawa addresses, Sengataki Nishi-ku is the one that attracts the envy and popularity. A villa produced by Safari, which has been undergoing renovation for some time, has been completed.
In the depths of the white birch and oak trees, a chic design building with a black frame on the texture of the wood can be seen and hidden. It is a landscape unique to a beautiful villa area where it is said that “there should be no fences or shields as much as possible.”
Passing through the gate of Asama stone and entering the entrance led by the approach of Teppei stone, a spacious space with a ceiling height of 4m spreads out. Originally a villa built for private use by the chairman of a famous company. While making use of the solid frame and hard and glossy floors, we have enhanced functionality and beauty, such as the tiled kitchen and cypress bathroom, and renovated to bring out the charm of the building over time.
You can spend your time freely wherever you like, such as a living room where you can face the beauty of nature, a wooden deck with a depth of 1.5m where you can read while feeling the outside breeze, and a detached room with a sense of isolation. In addition to the two bedrooms, there are also separate bedrooms, making it a satisfying building where you can spend a pleasant time with friends, family, or even by yourself.
