Owning a renovated traditional Japanese house has never become so reasonable and easy. A compact 55.38SQM 2 story house listed for JPY 198,000,000 (USD 165,000).
Though the year built is unknown (very old), comprehensive exterior and interior refurbishments were conducted – allowing co-existence of traditional and modern in a given space.
The location, Abeno has two faces. The neighborhood was known as a traditional residential and commercial district in South Osaka. But over the decade, a part of the area is going through a large scale redevelopment – Abeno Harukas – the tallest building in Japan with 300m was built in 2014. With these developments, the area itself retains a good mix of traditional and contemporary.
