Aston Martin designs home in Japan

The four-story home has an automotive gallery

-

Aston Martin is branching out from making high-end cars and SUVs to designing homes in Japan with real estate leader, VIBROA. The first house in Japan to be ordained “Designed by Aston Martin” is 001 Minami Aoyama, a four-story home located in the Omotesando area of Minami Aoyama and scheduled to be completed in November 2023. Don’t worry about looking into getting a mortgage, the home has already been sold to a private buyer.

“As Aston Martin grows in Japan, we are passionate about finding innovative ways to bring our ultra-luxury brand to life and resonate with local consumers,” Greg Adams, Regional President – Japan and South Korea of Aston Martin said. “We are delighted to be working with VIBROA, helping create what we believe is a perfect home for an Aston Martin owner, with design elements inspired by our breath-taking portfolio of ultra-luxury and high-performance cars.”

With a design befit for an Aston Martin customer it has a wine cellar, home cinema, gym, private spa, a roof terrace with views of Tokyo, and most importantly an automotive gallery. I have a background in writing collector car descriptions and have never delved into penning real estate listings, but I can say it’s an incredible looking home and maintains the class and style of an Aston Martin Vantage.

“Outside, we’ve created a striking architectural form with clean lines and seamless boundaries so the residents can connect with and experience this unique location,” Greg Adams, Regional President – Japan and South Korea of Aston Martin said. “Inside, we’ve catered to the senses, using a holistic combination of elements and materials to create a calm and relaxing space for them to retreat.”

Oddly enough this isn’t Aston Martin’s first foray into real estate. It’s first project was a collaboration with S3 Architecture that produced the upstate New York residence, Sylvan Rock. The 5,983 square foot residence is on a 55-acre plot and had a listing price of $7.7 million. The Aston Martin Residences luxury tower in Miami is 97% sold out before its scheduled opening in Summer 2023.

Strange days from the British luxury car maker as it attempts to evolve from just an automotive producer into offering an all-encompassing lifestyle with space to park your Vanquish and then slumber in suburban Tokyo. But maybe I am not seeing the whole picture from Aston Martin. With debts mounting, close to £1 billion in net debt per a recent earnings report, a foray into real estate development in various markets could keep Aston Martin afloat. Hopefully new markets and a diversified revenue stream can keep it solvent because I prefer seeing James Bond in an Aston Martin.
