Luxurious living on the coveted Escarpment Estate with views of the majestic Mt Yotei

Modern Convenience. Exclusive Tranquility.

Kawasemi: the Kingfisher, majestically diving for prey from it’s perch. As is typical with the Escarpment Estate, the goal with Kawasemi was to allow the owner to flutter into the peaceful scenery of the mountains and just as easily dive back into the convenience of Hirafu village. Convenience and tranquility within minutes of each other and yet still mutually exclusive. The unapologetically modern home was plucked from the brilliant minds of Hikohito Konishi Architects & Associates out of Sapporo.

Kawasemi was brought to life in 2014 by Sudo Constructions. The 4 Bedroom, 3 bathroom home spreads itself over a 220 sqm floor area. Perched on a steep embankment, Kawasemi boasts floor to ceiling windows in the living areas to ensure completely unobstructed panoramic views of the ever changing seasonal tapestry in the shadow of Mt Yotei. Balconies on both floors encourage getting even closer to the greenery during the cool summer months. Inside, the beautifully appointed furnishings and spacious living and dining areas are tied together by a eco-smart fireplace to cozy up to during the colder months. The “unobstructed views” theme is even brought into the bathrooms where massive windows allows melting into a warm bath while watching the snowflakes float by outside.

As Hirafu continues to expand and grow exponentially, the number of sites that remain truly tranquil continue to dwindle. This is where the Escarpment Estates’ exclusivity comes into play and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Tranquility and convenience are more often than not mutually exclusive. However, with the Escarpment Estate, having both is it’s biggest strength. Wake up in the morning to unobstructed magnificent views of Mt. Yotei, then take a short 5 minute drive into the heart of town to spend the day skiing Niseko’s champagne powder or golfing in it’s beauty, depending on the season, enjoying the abundance of good food and drink, a soak in the onsen, and just as easily head back to the peace and quiet of your accommodation.
