The interior cleverly pairs wood floors, walls of glass, and planked ceilings with an indoor footbridge over a long sunken garden, paper-lined cabinetry, fusuma and sliding glass doors, along with shoji screens to define the internal areas.

Curbside, the Sukiya-zukuri influence is immediately noticeable with Engawa decking lining the side of the house creating an easy indoor/outdoor flow.

Blending the simplicity of post and beam design inside the house with intricate Japanese details on the outside, the Japanese-inspired midcentury home is listed, asking $1.099 million.
