For Sale - Our House in Phuket
If you follow me on social media (Twitter or Instagram) you may have seen that, after 19 years in Phuket, I have headed back to the UK. Reasons? School/education for my kids, a new challenge, a new life, being close to family in the UK ... we plan to stay for quite a few years, maybe forever - we are keeping our house in Chumphon (my wife's hometown), but in order to fund this big move we are selling our house in Phuket. Or we'd be happy to rent it long term (at least 6 months). Anyone interested, please contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or (better) if you are in Phuket and want to see the house please call 089 2929104 to arrange a viewing. If calling an international number, please call +66 89 2929104. My wife is back in Thailand at the moment and can arrange everything. Cheers!
Location, Location Location
Sure everyone has an idea of their preferred location. If you want a seaview, sorry we can't help, but .. we are in the Kathu area. The center of the universe! Within 5-10 minutes we can drive to all major malls and supermarkets, cinema, international hospitals, many of the best schools, local markets, golf courses, lots of restaurants .. Patong is a 10-15 minute drive in one direction and Phuket Town is 10-15 minutes in the other direction. Nearest minimart to our house is a 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk, and there's a gasoline station in the same location. We are on a quiet side road, but close to everything. There's a clubhouse with a pool and gym right over the street from our house. There's no through traffic passing our house, it's very peaceful.
Our house sits of 140 Wah of land, which is 560 square meters. This is divided into 2x70 Wah plots with separate land titles. The house is on 70 Wah and we bought the extra land later so we have a big garden area and space for parking multiple vehicles and lots of space to expand the house or build your own pool or even build a second house.
The house is one floor (unless you count a climb of 2 steps to the bedrooms. There's a large living room/dining area, a not-so-huge kitchen that we often thought to enlarge, 3 bedrooms, one main bathroom, plus 1 bedroom has en-suite shower/toilet and another bedroom has en-suite shower. Main bathroom was recently redecorated. All bedrooms and living room have aircon. Behind the kitchen is a covered utility area where we have washing machines/dryer/storage. At the front of the house there's also a decent size shed.
Water supply to our street is very good, and we also have a water tank with pump. Electric supply in Kathu is very reliable, I can recall maybe 3 times in 15 years when we had any power outages. We have 3bb internet / wifi in the house which a new owner can take over if they want. There are multiple wall mounted fans around the house which will stay there. All windows have new mosquito screens and bars. Security in the street has never been a problem. It's a very safe area.
If you need more information - please contact me by email (email@example.com) or to see the house please call my wife 089 2929104 to arrange a viewing.
We have lived there 15 years and we were the only occupants of the house, so it has had 1 careful owner! Perfect for a family, lots of space, quiet area but close to everything.
Selling price : 8,200,000 Baht or near enough offer. For a house in this location with a big land area, it's a good price.
Rental : 20,000 Baht per month - discount possible if paying long term in advance.
As you can see - lots of space and different areas around the house. We have enjoyed living here, adding extras to the house, redecorating, repainting, growing the garden - lots of big mature plants which we planted many years ago. I am biased, but it's a very nice place to live.
Anyone interested, please contact me by email (@yahoo.co.uk) or if you are in Phuket and want to see the house please call my wife 089 2929104 (or +66 89 2929104) to arrange a viewing. Thanks!
