With history dating back to the very early 20th century, this unique property with a historic Japanese garden yearns for the next owner that will preserve its legacy. The 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom single-family home can be used to create an incredible residence overlooking the garden. Kotani-En is a California registered historical landmark (Number 903) and has been placed in the National Register of Historic Places. Features of the garden include a teahouse, Shinto temple, Torii gate, and other authentic Japanese structures and garden designs. The garden was designed to mimic a 13th century Samurai estate. Garden buildings were constructed using methods from that time and materials were sourced in the Kyoto region of Japan as were many of the original plantings. The unusual 2,702 sq. ft. home is currently configured as a workshop space and has excellent potential to be remodeled into a modern luxury home. A washer and dryer, a 2-car garage, and additional parking on the lot complete the home.
With too much history to describe here, this is a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity; it has not been available for purchase in more than 50 years.
