Art the homefinder's spot of the week


{jathumbnail}"

Atmosphere:
****
This recently renovated villa, located down a quiet street, has a shaded and spacious garden in which one can soak up the neighbourhood’s serenity.

Utilities and service:
****
The owner adds no additional charges to the bills, so standard prices apply for electricity, water and cable TV, while an internet connection is available on request.

Security:
***
The owner does not employ a security guard, however, they are not hard to come by. Due to the number of expats residing in the area, there is a strong security presence.

Location:
****
Located near the ever-popular BKK1 area and close to the Russian Market, the villa is ideally situated, with restaurants, bars and shops a short walk away.    

Value:
****
The owner is asking for US$1,000 per month, however, this is negotiable. An acceptable price for a charming three bedroom villa in such a convenient location.

Furnishings:
***
As the villa has recently been rigorously renovated, the owner has opted to leave the furnishings out until a tenant moves in. There is plenty of storage space in the kitchen, along with a refrigerator and oven, while all bedrooms are complete with air-conditioning.

Maintenance:
*****
The owner has recently had all appliances checked, but if a problem does arise, the owner will arrange to have it fixed.

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