Colonial Apartment Downtown
Shwedagon Pagoda Rd, Yangon, Myanmar (Burma)

  • $150,000


This is a colonial apartment downtown, Yangon. The asking price is $1500 USD per month, and the sales price is $150,000 USD. The square feet 1600.

The apartment has all the charms and practicalities of a colonial-era home without any of the needed maintenance. A result of a careful renovation, the two-tier living space occupies half of the second story of an attractive early 20th-century building in the heart of downtown Yangon.

Three large windows let in natural light; the patterned lintel spanning over the top of the central window was inspired from an original design found in the building while the panes use a mixture of original and reclaimed timber.

One side of the apartment is all exposed brick and includes an original brick arch set against carbonised strand-woven bamboo flooring, a perfect element to resist humidity and termites. The open kitchen comes complete with a bar, dining area and everything else you need, including an oven and dishwasher.

Upstairs, the wide pyinkado flooring of the mezzanine serves as the perfect spot for working from home, relaxing with guests, or even for yoga and meditation. The nearby bedroom has windows near the ceiling that allow for views of the night sky – as do the adjacent second bathroom and walk-in shower.

Solid wood fans hang from almost every room, helping ventilate the space, while a new roof installation using white sheets and 5 layers of insulation moderates the heat, along with the numerous air-conditioning units. A backup power supply has been built into the breezy design, protecting the apartment from electricity cuts. While the residence is outfitted with lots of reclaimed wood, the exterior has been plastered and given fresh coatings of cream paint.

This apartment will come fully furnished, with a dishwasher, cleaning service and fibre internet, along with a backup generator.
