Sendagaya Olympic View
Just a short 5 minute walk from the new Tokyo Olympic Park, the site of both the main stadium for the 2020 games and a major new sports and recreational center in Tokyo, this is a fully custom built, freestanding luxury house built to exacting international tastes.
The property was lovingly designed by its current owner, who with a grown family has decided to downsize and it features custom touches throughout its 6 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 4 toilets, floor heating, two level roof balcony.
These include a two car garage with private entrance and dumb waiter elevator to carry groceries up to the kitchen or the lower entertainment room. Or the vast living-dining area that boasts wide open living spaces that can comfortable accommodate a dining area, a relaxation space and a huge separate kitchen with pantry. Dominating this area are floor-to-ceiling windows that capture incredible amounts of natural light, but are angled with the blinds to maintain full and complete privacy. For winter months there is a western-style fireplace (in addition to central air-conditioning and under-floor heating); a rarity in Japan, it runs ecologically friendly and provides a fuller, more natural warmth.
Note: Furniture provided by BoConcept and does not come as part of the sale.
This house has been styled to bring international luxury to the quiet and exclusive streets of Sendagaya. Gaienmae, Omotesando and Aoyama are easy walks from the property as well as the leafy surroundings that make up the area around the new national stadium, host to both the 2019 Rugby World Cup and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Houses in Tokyo
The Sendagaya address has seen similar pricing trends as the rest of central Tokyo, with a peak in 2008. The onset of the Global Financial Crises lowered pricing, however the post GFC bottom still held a higher value than the bottom pre-GFC and since then, prices have seen an uptick. Owning a freestanding house (or any house at all) in this part of Tokyo is rare, but what makes this stand out further is both the size of the structure, the land size and its high-quality finish. The property is also constructed to the more stringent commercial building standards, with earthquake enforcement at the highest level while renowned Tokyo firm Secom also provides an advanced security system.
This area then is already well-established, especially through its proximity to fashionable and boutique areas of Aoyama, Omotesando and Harajuku, but there is more to come. With the redevelopment of the Olympic park its immediate surroundings, including the stadium, a park area and new office complexes that will house the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. Taken together, it points to long-term value and the continued importance of the Sendagaya neighbourhood to Tokyo society.

About the area
The property is located amongst quiet and leafy residential streets in what is an exclusive part of Shibuya ward, close to Shinjuku Gyoen, the Tokyo Olympic Stadium and the boutique Aoyama neighbourhood. The immediate surroundings are of peaceful streets lined with houses and private estates, while just a short walk away are the large public parks that encompass both the Olympic facilities and the cultural center of the Meiji Shrine.
Due for redevelopment ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, the Olympic Park will be transformed into an ultra-modern leisure center and will be a major visitor destination in its own right. The Meiji Shrine to the south-west of the property is one of the most important cultural landmarks in Tokyo, a center for Shinto and traditional ceremonies and is surrounded in beautiful inner-city garden spaces. A little further away, the streets of Aoyama are home to some of the most artistic and stylish of all Tokyo boutiques, as well as fine-dining and the offices of a number of design studios.
Within a 15 minute walk there are 7 different subway and JR commuter train lines with access to all major centers of Tokyo and beyond, to other parts of Japan. This provides excellent access for travelling around both the city, and the wider country as well as getting to Narita or Haneda Airports for international travel.
