This Kanazawa machiya house is beautiful down to the smallest detail.
As visitors to Kanazawa will know, there are many machiya houses that have been renovated and turned into fashionable cafes and restaurants, showing that the people of Kanazawa have preserved the historical townscape and machiya houses for many years.
This property is an Edo period townhouse that used to manufacture and sell miso and soy sauce, and has two storehouses, and was designated as a Registered Tangible Cultural Property of Japan in 2004. There is also a parking lot in the back of the house and the garden can be extended.
This property can be used as a private house or for commercial purposes. The location is 20 minutes to Kanazawa Station, and since it is in the city, it would be easier to sell the property as a vacant lot, but there may be someone who can make use of the property in its current condition, so it is being sold in the condition of a townhouse.
The rooms are very beautiful with Kanazawa’s characteristic red color, the staircase, and the latticework on the exterior. The garden could be transformed into a wonderful courtyard if it were cared for.
