Art the homefinder's spot of the week

Art the homefinder's spot of the week


This week I have a two-bedroom, third-floor apartment near the German Embassy which is very good value.

The kitchen (left) and the living room (above). 

Atmosphere:
????
This apartment is in one of the most popular areas in town for expats, close to the riverside with parks, shops and restaurants all within walking distance.

Utilities and service:
?????
There are standard charges for water and electricity, but the owner provides free internet and free cable television. The big western-style kitchen is a bonus for those who want to cook their own food.

Security:
?????
The security in this street is very good and the landlord has people on duty around the clock making sure the property is secure. The gates are locked and any visitors are carefully screened before being allowed in.

Location:
?????
Set in the popular riverside area, the location is as good as it gets in Phnom Penh. Everything from restaurants to parks to museums is only a short walk away.

Value:
????? 
The asking price is US$500 per month. This is very good value for this area and for this apartment. If you’re interested, call me quick because this place won’t last long on the market.

Furnishings:
?????
There are nice tables and chairs throughout the place, the beds are solid and strong and the western-style kitchen has a stove, oven and loads of storage space.

Maintenance:
?????
Everything is in fine working order and all the appliances are only one year old. The owner is on call if anything does go wrong.                     
              
As always, my rating system is based on an innovative five Star rating system.
