An array of accommodation in BKK1

An array of accommodation in BKK1

Located in the area between Tonle Bassac and Monivong Boulevard, Boeung Keng Kang 1 is arguably the heartbeat of the city, and Phnom Penh’s focal expatriate quarter. It remains one of the city’s most popular areas, resulting in higher rents and sparse supply of accommodation. Recent development activity, however, has seen the emergence of a number of new apartment blocks, providing alternative accommodation options in the area. Although many of the refurbished villas in BKK1 are currently occupied by businesses and organisations, the increasing commercial space becoming available throughout Phnom Penh is expected to return these villas to residential use in the near future.

Luxury option
This large, spacious villa is located in the center of BKK1, close to the restaurants and entertainment areas of this suburb. It features a fully equipped kitchen, complete with large fridge, oven, gas cooktop and ample cupboard space. There are two living areas, located on the ground and first floors, with a study leading off the lower living area. The bedrooms are large, well lit and spacious with fully equipped ensuites. There is a front courtyard that can accommodate a couple of vehicles. The total price for this property is US$4000 a month plus utility costs.

This apartment is huge. Occupying the entire second floor of a boutique apartment complex in the northern area of BKK1, this two-bedroom apartment includes enormous open-plan dining, living and kitchen areas. The kitchen is furnished with a large refrigerator, a gas cooker with exhaust fan and spacious cupboards. The apartment has two huge bedrooms with ensuites that provide extra living space for the occupants. The apartment is partly furnished and has limited parking available. It is listed at US$1300 a month, and the tenant will be responsible for utility costs.

Budget option
Located in a secure compound adjoining to the landlord’s property, this quaint, one-bedroom property has been rec-ently refurbished and contains newly upholstered furniture throughout. The kitchen and living area are open-plan, while a separate bedroom is located to one side. Situated close to a plethora of restaurants and bars in the heart of BKK1, this apartment is ideal for a sole occupant and is on the market for US$450 a month plus utility bills. Parking is available for a single vehicle.
