This house in Golden Valley looks for all the world like a colonial era property but don’t be deceived – the original builder merely copied a few design cues and integrated them into what is a far more modern construction.
However, many of the colonial elements are rather handy and quite rare. In particular, care has been taken to ensure that the house is livable even when the power is done. This has been achieved by using external balconies at the front of the house and adding extensive windows (with room between the house and the edge of the block to allow airflow), which lets breeze flow right through the bedrooms and living areas. There is also a large external balcony at the rear and side of the house.
In total there are 3 or 4 bedrooms – two master bedrooms with attached bathrooms and a single on the upper floor of the house – with a small single bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, which could be used as a bedroom on occasion.
The kitchen is quite large and separated from the dining and living rooms, with all three along one side of the house and overlooking the pretty and shady garden.
There’s also a separate sitting room on the ground floor, while the upper floor has a wonderful and bright living space above the portico, complete with windows on three sides.
Overall, the house is in good condition but a few places need minor repairs and the garden is in need of some love too.
The owner asks US$4000 per month for this pretty property but is open to negotiation.
The house is right in the heart of Golden Valley – walking distance from ISY, Network and the French schools, and the City Mart Marketplace on Dhammazedi Road is only 10 minutes on foot.
