Nestled in the old district near Old Bridge and Durian roundabout is this grand renovated Colonial corner building now available for sale in Kampot City.
It is only 100m from the river on a main street corner and has plenty of commercial exposure.
This house is one of the very first of its kind in Kampot and being built at the beginning of the Twentieth Century, is a great living example of the era.
It was bought and renovated by the current owner in 2011.
Restoration work included – reinforcing foundations, strengthening supporting columns, replacing the original wooden floor with a concrete slap, adding a new roof and other improvements.
The orientation of the building is Southeast. In the rainy season, the prevailing wind blows over and not into the house. During the hot, dry season the north east wind provides a refreshing breeze.
The sun shines on the doors and windows in the mornings, which are in shadow after midday when it gets hot outside.
Being located centrally, it would suit a number of viable businesses such as art gallery, restaurant, bar, retail shop, design studio, offices with or without living quarters.

Kep (Kaeb in Khmer) is a coastal town in Kampot Province in the southern area of Cambodia.
It has some very picturesque area and attracts many local and foreign tourists on weekends and special festivals due to its natural beauty and relaxing nature.

The province is being developed at a fast rate, which is pushing prices up considerably.
A main attraction of Kep is Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island) which is located southeast of the town.
The beaches here are very attractive and relatively under-developed, although this is changing.
The National Park and Butterfly Farms capture the beauty of nature as do its beaches and pagodas, giving each visitor the chance to enjoy Khmer culture.
From Kep Cambodia website:
“… Kep is a seaside town located on a group of hills going down to the beach. Cambodian and Vietnamese islands are just offshore.
It’s a half hour drive from Kampot, Cambodia a half hour to the Vietnamese border; and 2 hours from SihanoukVille and Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Bungalows, villas, guesthouses, and hotels are located on the hillside and the beaches. Also, beach side bungalows on Rabbit Island.
There’s not a whole lot [here] mostly a place for relaxation, enjoying fresh seafood, going for walks, trekking though the hills, boating, fishing and island trips, bicycling and mountain biking, sitting on the beach, and as a stopover on the way to or from Vietnam.
Plenty of garden style resorts around the beaches and mountains.
Most have swimming pools, air-con rooms, on-site restaurants, and are quite picturesque…”.
