Forest Estate is the brainchild of architect Riccardo Tossani and comprises of a small cluster of beautiful three-bedroom houses situated in middle Hirafu village. The houses are located in a quiet and secluded area of the village, removed from the hustle and bustle of the village centre, and have been carved into and designed around the existing landscape of the area. This means that visitors are treated to total tranquillity and are encouraged to enjoy Niseko's beautiful landscapes.
This engagement with nature is also encouraged through the addition of large picture windows throughout all of the houses, providing stunning views that help to bring the outside in and of course allow for ample natural light to flood each room. The houses are fully self-contained and are ideal for extended stays, easily housing both families and groups of friends with double or single bedding configurations. Despite being situated in a somewhat remote area, the size of Niseko means that even then, restaurants and shops are only a short walk away and the village ski shuttle stop is only a stone's throw from the front door - great news for ski enthusiasts.

3 Bedroom HouseThese three-bedroom houses breathe understated sophistication and contemporary charm. Split over two levels, they feature high ceilings, a mix of both dark and light warm neutrals throughout and, of course, modern, hand-picked furniture to complement both the design of the space and the exterior landscape. The bedrooms are all located on the bottom floor, all featuring a small desk and plenty of storage space, and the master featuring a luxurious, and large ensuite bathroom. There are two other bathrooms, just as luxe, as well complete laundry facilities and a skier's dream - a secure ski drying area - also on this level.
The second level of the houses comprises of a stunning large, open plan living area. This space is flooded with light and contemporary finishes, making it inviting, warm and the perfect place to unwind while overlooking snow falling on the Japanese pine forest right outside the windows. The kitchen is a fully equipped and open plan design, featuring state of the art Japanese and western appliances, as well as a full sized breakfast bar to complement the pantry and prep space. This makes the apartment ideal for extended stays and for entertaining guests - you'll have more than enough room to cook your favourite meals.
The dining space complements the breakfast bar with similar furnishing style and décor and has the ability to seat eight. Adjoining this is a large lounge area, featuring not only a full home theatre system - LCD television, DVD player and awesome sound system - but also a modern gas fireplace to make the nights (or days) spent indoors extra cosy as well as plush, modern sofas with plenty of space for the whole group. This opens onto a spacious private balcony overlooking the surrounding village - lucky guests might also catch a view of Mt. Yotei.
