Nestled between Mao Tse Toung Blvd to the south, Monivong Blvd to the west and Toul Tom Poung to the east, Boeung Trabek is one of the capital’s most rapidly transforming areas. It comprises a number of new apartment blocks, freshly laid concrete roads and the recently-constructed Boeung Trabek Plaza. The outskirts of the suburb feature properties of various styles, from a concentration of traditional wooden villas near Mao Tse Toung Blvd in the north to a number of contemporary-style apartments situated in the south and west. Such properties have started to attract a growing number of expatriates, driven southwest by the ever-increasing rental prices in the central suburbs, however, these apartments tend to vary in size and quality, as landlords attempt to meet Western tastes.
Located in a pleasant area, this relatively new three-bedroom apartment is impressively designed and furnished. It contains three bright, spacious bedrooms all containing en-suites, while the master bedroom features a private balcony which overlooks the street below. The property boasts a huge living area, dining area to the rear, and a separate galley kitchen fully equipped with an oven, electrical appliances and necessary utensils. It is priced at US$1,200 per month, including free parking, gym and spa.
