Abode is proud to announce the release of a superbly appointed 1-bedroom riverfront apartment for rent in Daun Penh with original colonial features and private balcony.

Secure access is gained directly from the street into the lobby with an elevator and the original, gracefully curved staircase to all floors.

Rich art deco tiling and hand-crafted woodwork and furniture throughout the apartments are reminiscent of the halcyon days of Phnom Penh.

Tenants have the option of fully/part furnished or unfurnished.

The kitchen and bathroom are well appointed with modern appliances and the entire apartment is air-conditioned with a ceiling fan to ensure comfort – even in summer.

The owners of the building are proud of what is on offer and believes it is what separates this building from many in Riverside.

Tenants usually hold longer term leases and come from all corners of the globe.

Security, personal safety and comfort are the primary concerns of the owner and in the 14 years of operation, there have never been any security issues.

Apartment management fees cover:

  1. Security: Digicode door and intercom system, including a security team working 24 hours. Not only are they trustworthy, but tenants can direct any queries or concerns to them.
  2. Maintenance: Maintenance is managed in-house, and tenants are encouraged to raise any concerns for immediate attention. The A/C units are serviced every two months (cleaning, gas refill, etc.).
  3. Elevator: Maintenance of elevator in 163, which is the only residential building on Sisowath Quay with such equipment.
  4. Cleaning of common areas

Immediate inspection is a must. This property will not be vacant for long!

Riverside: the real downtown near the palace

Day and night Riverside is busy. It is probably the real downtown Phnom Penh where the oldest parts of the city are located.

I am referring to Wat Phnom, Phsar Chas, Phsar Kandal, Chey Chumneas and Chaktomuk.

Preah Sisowath (honoring King Sisowath 1904 to 1927 reign) is the avenue / boulevard running along the riverfront.

It starts at the Buddhist Institute near Sothearos Boulevard.

Then continues north to the Japanese Bridge where it becomes National Road 6 leading to Battambang.

Generations of days gone by have left their footprints from Angkor kings to French colonists to UN troops.

Riverside witnesses the confluence of the Mekong, Tonle Sap and Bassac rivers and where the Water Festival is best viewed each November.

It is always stunning, especially at sunup and sundown.

In Riverside, there is a wide selection of restaurants, wellbeing services, hotels, shops and bars aimed at tourists.

Among the restaurants, you will find good selections – German, Italian, French, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian and Malaysian.

A personal reflection on Riverside – from art gallery to market stall, $5 massages and 5-star hotels

Street 172 is punctuated with $3 massage joints and bars occupied by grey faces framed with light grey hair.

Yet, just around the corner, Street 178 is now arguably the rising art gallery district of Phnom Penh with the University of Fine Arts a stone’s throw away.

Friends Café has made a bold statement and the Mansion House seems to be waiting for reincarnation.

Now the Hyatt has opened its doors to the Jet set, it may well be a different designer-schmick precinct to what is currently now.

In fact, when you look up along 172, the standard of shophouses is somewhat ‘better’ than in other parts of the city: it could be the rising star of Daun Penh and Riverside.

In the streets around Riverside, there is a sense that there are too many hostess bars, each vying for a shifting slice of the tourist and expat pie.

Rents will rise with the inevitable escalation of land values and the ROI of each vendor’s patch will become more and more critical as the clock ticks.

Looking at Phsar Kandal and the open block where Prey Sar prison once sat. one can’t help but wonder what’s coming next.

Given its proximity to Riverside and the 172 and 178 ‘sweet spot’, maybe there is something special waiting in the sidelines, something for the inspired new generation of architects and artists.

My guess is a shopping centre, possibly with apartments too!


A short history of colonial villas

Phnom Penh was an important hub for French colonialists. Its wide roads, beautiful gardens and grand villas and colonial mansions earned it the undisputed title ‘Pearl of Asia’ in the 1920s.

From this time, the city expanded rapidly.
