French Colonial townhouse near Independence Monument for sale
Freer is proud to present this remarkable French Colonial property that was the domicile of former MP, Ek Yi Un, then it was home for one Khmer family from 1985 – 1992, following which it was the home of UNTAC staff during the post Khmer Rouge era. It is as if it has been frozen in time and is a perfect example of the grandeur of the time, with 5m ceilings, ornate internal and external window screens and beautiful Khmer floor tiles.
The first level contains a huge entrance with an original grandiose terrazzo staircase that leads visitors to the main living floor or lower level apartment. This floor houses two bedrooms (the master bedroom of truly royal proportions), two bathrooms, a huge dining room, kitchen and massive lounge leading to a large balcony with 270 degree views.
The third level houses two large bedrooms, a bathroom, living room and separate kitchen with an enormous open roof terrace. Both the second and third levels can either be completely independent or reunited to form the mansion like qualities of this truly magical Khmer architectural gem.
The property will be sold semi-furnished and ready to move in or, with some additional restoration work will make this one of the best pre-Khmer Rouge properties on the market today.
