Art the homefinder's spot of the week

Art the homefinder's spot of the week

This week we have a huge three-bedroom apartment in the BKK1 area which is perfect for entertaining.

The kitchen and dining/living rooms are a good size.

There is a nice atmosphere in this area, with the apartment block surrounded by large trees and set in a quiet, small street near a pagoda.

Utilities and service:
This is great value with the owner only charging $5 each for the cable TV, garbage collection and water. Standard fees apply for electricity and the internet is available on request.

There is very good security here. The compound is always locked and the residents have their own keys. There are lots of expats living in this quiet street and they say they have had very few security problems.

This apartment is close to a large supermarket, it’s near a pagoda and there is a local market nearby. There is also a very well known restaurant within walking distance.

The owner is asking for US$400 per month in rent, which is great value for a two-bedroom apartment in this area. This large apartment is fully furnished, in a quiet area and set on a small, quiet street.

There is a gas stove, a refridgerator and plenty of storage space in the kitchen. The dining/living room has many chairs, a dining table, cane sofa and a TV. The beds are made from solid timber and both bedrooms have cupboards.

Everything is in fine working order. The owner lives close by and can come quick to repair anything that breaks down.                               

As always, my rating system is based on an innovative five Star rating system.
