Take a trip stateside with this compound

There are housing compounds that look like Yangon property, and there are housing compounds that look international. This week’s house in Bahan township has the feel of a North American home.

It’s got a large yard with green grass and a one-car garage for your main vehicle, and lots of room outside for any other cars. It has a large balcony to take advantage of the cool evenings, and large windows in its five master bedrooms that allow a flood of natural light. It also boasts a small maid or guesthouse for stashing in-laws.

Now on the exterior the palm trees and orange tile roofing may end the comparison to most North American homes, but they also serve as a fair reminder that House of the Week lives in Myanmar.

The 1350-square-foot house also boasts a living room, a dedicated dining room, a kitchen, two smaller bedrooms in addition to the master bedrooms, and a maid corner. With all this room there’s lots of space for a large family – though this may work to your detriment if you’d like to send your visiting in-laws to the guesthouse.

The amenities are all there. The house has eight air conditioners, a telephone land line and the rooms are nicely furnished to suit modern tastes.

The asking price might be a little high for some at US$7000 a month, but you can also flex your negotiation muscles. It’s also near downtown, making a relatively short commute.
