Glasshouse Niseko, Abuta gun, Hokkaido, Japan


Offered at ¥700,000,000

The glass-walled tour-de-force, voted one of Japan’s top 200 homes and nominated for the World Ski Awards in 2014 and 2015, was designed by award-winning architect Hikohito Konishi. Exuding pristine luxury atop a steep woodland escarpment in the highly sought-after Niseko-Hirafu village, and tastefully styled in glass, concrete, and steel, the dwelling’s floor-to-ceiling windows showcase panoramic views of Niseko Valley, Mt. Yotei, and the Grand Hirafu ski area. A generous, fully equipped open kitchen makes cooking a joy, yet Niseko’s best restaurants are only a short walk away. A floating fireplace keeps it all warm and cozy. The master bedroom, equipped with an en-suite bathroom and private study, boasts large glass windows that illuminate the space with lovely views year-round. Four more spacious bedrooms grace the lower level of the chalet. Japanese architectural finesse is evident in the private outdoor Jacuzzi, indoor hinoki wood tub, and a spacious outdoor patio created for summer enjoyment. Glasshouse was crafted to excel at large-scale entertaining, but is equally comfortable as a spacious family retreat—no matter the season.
