A share house with 36 rooms, in units sharable by 4 people
Hibarigaoka-Hanayashiki on the Hankyu Takarazuka line is well-known as a quiet and high-class residential neighborhood. A 5-minute walk from the station you can find Gran Takarazuka. There are no tall buildings around, which means you get nice sunlight. A small river flows behind the house, and if you listen closely you may hear the pleasant sound of wind rustling through tree leaves. Live in a quiet residential area surrounded by nature.
36 rooms, 4-person sharing
At Gran Takarazuka, there are units in which 4 rooms share a kitchen, lounge, shower, and bathroom. This building used to be a company dormitory for a large company, and there are 9 4LDK units, as it was originally meant for families. But now, you can enjoy a more cozy share house experience, maintaining your privacy while also having some sense of social exchange. Elsewhere in the house there is a mini-lounge and theater so you can get to know people from other units easily.
There are 3 types of lounge at Gran Takarazuka. All the kitchens have been remodeled, with spacious work space and 3-burner induction heat stoves. It will surely be easy and fun to cook with your housemates. The kitchen comes outfitted with a microwave, rice cooker, toaster, electric kettle, dishes, cutlery, and more.
The water works you will share as 4 people are also well-equipped, with sinks and shower rooms newly remodeled.
There is also a washing machine.
A green town
The Hibarigaoka-Hanayashiki area was developed over 100 years ago. It's a small station, and there are no giant buildings or bustling markets, but there are convenience stores, small food stores, and even a city hall office. Most of the houses are surrounded by well-trimmed bushes, and Gran Takarazuka is much the same, with Japanese maple trees, a small river, great sunlight, and other natural pleasantries.
