The Westminster Nanpeidai
The Westminster Nanpeidai offers luxury residences for sale in an elegant part of Tokyo, with a high-level of international design.
Created by renowned British developer Grosvenor, the Westminster Grosvenor is the company`s second development in Tokyo, after The Westminster Roppongi, which established itself in the market as one of the most sought-after homes for both local and foreign buyers alike. With The Westminster Nanpeidai, the company has taken an existing structure and fully redeveloped it to its own exacting standards. Everything has been reformed, from the facade through to the stylish new lobby area, Japanese stone garden and on through to the fixtures and finishings on each individual residence.
Multiple options are open to the buyer, from room size and layout to the level of finishing available. Select from either a finely finished open plan room or a fully-styled interior by a London design studio.
At just four storeys, the property is an elegant low-rise that sits comfortably within the leafy streets of the Nanpeidai area. The limited number of units ensures a sense of exclusivity and calm, with plenty of space to spread out in and greenery to privately enjoy.
Previously a luxury high-end rental unit, Grosvenor has completely transformed all aspects of the property. In addition to its design and reconstruction, new features include a welcoming lobby and lounge area, bilingual concierge service to assist with daily life, a Japanese stone garden, gym and rooftop private gardens with patio that have commanding views of the Shibuya downtown district.
Nanpeidai was once, long ago, home to several samurai residences. This created large plots of land that, as Japan opened up, attracted diplomats, industrialists and political leaders to buy in and make their own homes. The are became known as an upscale residence, a place where political ministers and local celebrities preferred to make their Tokyo homes and after all this time, this is still reflected in the property sizes, surrounding green streets, quiet elegance and a majority of low-rise buildings.
Grosvenor is one of the most iconic names in international luxury property, with a history stretching back centuries. From its base in central London the company has had a major hand in creating some of the most renowned high-end neighbourhoods and incredible urban residences around the world.
In coming to Japan the company chooses to work with Japanese designers and craftsman to ensure there international edge is also adjusted to fit perfectly with the local environment. This makes the property one of the few in Tokyo to boast both Japanese and western design.
