The floor area is a spacious Protected content ( Protected content ) and includes 5 bedrooms and an office/dressing/storage room. The 5SLDK Western-Japanese combination layout features a large open family room/LDK occupying most of the second floor, plus 3 bedrooms with hardwood flooring and 2 with tatami. The rooms are comfortable, each with split A/C-heaters (electric-gas dual function) with remotes, and constructed of the highest quality materials. Full tree stalks are used as structural members and a grand entry way includes marble flooring and double doors with keypad locking system.

There are two shower-type "washlet" toilet rooms (first and second floor), a 7 liter washer, 4 liter dryer, vanity and laundry sink included adjacent to the bath, and a Protected content extra storage freezer. A stainless steel German-made AEG-Electrolux electric oven (accommodates a 15 lb. turkey), 4-burner Gaggenau gas cooktop and a large Protected content refrigerator were recently installed.

Closet space is plentiful; additional storage is available in an underfloor enclosed space (for wine or surplus goods).
