Art the homefinder's spot of the week

A secure, reasonably priced spot in Tonle Bassac, boasting two bedrooms

Photo by:  WILL BAXTER
The bedrooms and living room are all quite spacious, and the beds are made of solid timber.

Wooden floors and a spacious sitting room set this apartment apart from its competition.  WILL BAXTER

The bedroom is fully furnished.  WILL BAXTER

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

Utilities and service:
Utilities are a great value with the owner only charging $5 each for 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, and there is a local market nearby. There is also a very well known restaurant within walking distance.

The owner is asking for US$350 per month in rent, which is great value for a two-bedroom, first-floor apartment in this area. This spacious apartment comes fully furnished as well, and the tile floors make it easy to clean.

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

Everything is in fine working order. The owner lives close by and can respond quickly to make repairs should anything in the apartment break down.

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