Art the homefinder's spot of the week

A chance to fulfill your dreams by living in this large, reasonably-priced villa

This grand villa offers ample space to socialise, relax and take a dip. 

The spacious bedrooms offer plenty of scope for decorating to suit your tastes.  SOVAN PHILONG

There are not many villas in the capital which can boast a swimming pool, however, that is not the only highlight of this impressive domicile. An expansive balcony and sprawling garden make this an ideal sanctuary in the city.

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.

The villa is in a safe area and is surrounded by an impregnable-looking wall. Due to the proximity of numerous embassies, there is a strong security presence throughout the neighbourhood.

Located in the quiet Tuol Kork district, this villa is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh. There is a large expat community and a number of local shops, which provide basic amenities. 

The owner is asking for US$2,500 per month, however, this is negotiable. A reasonable price for a five bedroom villa, complete with pool, garden, balcony and capacious rooms.

Equipped with a fridge-freezer, washing machine and gas stove, the kitchen is ready to use. All living quarters include air-con and are furnished with tables and chairs, while each bedroom comes with a wardrobe and air-con. 

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 Star rating system.
