It has a big window bringing in daylight. The pantry is between the kitchen and the door for the 4-bedroom.

The original condition of the apartment, unless renovated, has the dark chocolate brown wall ceramic tiles in the kitchen, the bathrooms and the spacious balcony.   This  make the apartment look dark and puts off many Caucasian expats. Plenty of closet spaces in louvered doors. Cable vision points present.

Lift to private lift lobby by access card. There is a complete control via programming such that nobody can get into your apartment via the lift.  Or you can release temporary control so that visitors can go directly to your lift.

Demand is too great as the American School bus stops at the American Club which is just across the road,  after official school hours. Those are the times when the kids have extra curricular activities.  

The American mum will like the kids just to walk home instead of having to take another bus to go back to the condos which may be further away. 


Two Tips for Landlords:

1.  Do not install heavy wooden doors as sliding doors for your closets or as partition between rooms because they don't last long if you just hang the doors from the rails off the ceiling. Most landlords don't like to have tracks on the floor to support the weight of the doors. Heavy wood looks good but the tenant will want them changed due to malfunction.

2.  On July 29, 2000, I saw a beautiful The Claymore 3-bedroom with pinkish streak white Italian marble. Door knobs were white porcelain with blue flowers.  Everything seem perfect. The American Tenant wanted it empty.  We discover that the mirrors and headboards of the queen-sized beds in the master and 2 single beds in one bedroom were solidly glued to the wall! Luckily the expats were persuaded to retain these items, otherwise it will cost money to hack them off.
