Think of Taipei and your mind’s eye might see im­ages of a fast-paced city filled with high-tech in­dus­tries. But while the city cen­tre may be built up, with only a few tran­quil cor­ners, such as its tem­ples and Da’an Park, the sub­urbs can of­fer a very dif­fer­ent way of liv­ing.

Lo­cated on an es­tate in Yang­ming­shan Na­tional Park, this con­tem­po­rary six-bed­room house is sur­rounded by pro­tected green­ery and has the added ad­van­tage of be­ing near the guarded em­bassy district, so its own­ers will ben­e­fit from 24-hour se­cu­rity. Another ad­van­tage of liv­ing away from the city cen­tre is space: the prop­erty of­fers more than 6,800sqft of in­ter­nal floor area.

Wow fac­tor: Tran­quil­lity. The home’s min­i­mal­ist in­te­ri­ors in­vite re­flec­tion and con­tem­pla­tion. Floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows in the liv­ing ar­eas of­fer clear views of hilly green vis­tas and cen­tury-old banyan trees. The Taipei coun­try­side is full of hot springs and hik­ing trails, mak­ing this house ideal for those seek­ing ac­cess to calm and re­lax­ation in the great out­doors. NT$170 mil­lion
