Art the Homefinder's Spot of the week

Some of the best views in town are from this classy two-bedroom apartment in the Tonle Bassac area.

The view from the balcony takes in parks and the riverside. WILL BAXTER

The light and views from every rooom are great.  WILL BAXTER

This two-bedroom apartment is perfectly situated in the heart of the capital in a quiet street, with wonderful views of the city and river.

Utilities and service:
There is very little to pay, apart from the electricty bill, because the cable television, internet, free parking and water costs are all included in the rent. Everything is quite new and in fine working order.

Like most apartment blocks in the city, there is 24-hour security with guards on duty around the clock and the addded safety of being well above street level.

This is a top floor apartment with stunning views of parks and the river from the dining room, bedroom and just about every other part the unit. Some people would snap this place up just for the views alone. It is also very central with many shops and restaurants in walking distance.

The owners are asking for US$1,400 per month in rent, which is a good price for an apartment in a prime cental pocaltion. It also boasts a western kitchen with an electric stove and oven.

This apartment is fully furnished with quality pieces including a nice soft sofa and a good dining table and chairs. There is also plenty of storage space in the western kitchen.

Everything is in fine working order and almost new.  If a new tennent wanted to change anything, a simple chat with the owner would be all that’s needed.                                    

AS always, my rating system is based on an innovative five thumbs-up rating system.
