Zhongyong 2nd Road, Shilin District
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
