Banyan Ville is one of the smallest clusters in The Green.
Nice and quiet. Good place for kids to ride their bikes.
Seems like a nice community in there. They had a ‘family day’ last school holidays.
Some clusters are more community orientated than others. It often depends on the RT.
Vineyard is a great cluster for young families. I’ll get to that one soon. The land plots in Banyan Ville are ‘smallish’ , around 200m2. A few owners have opted to buy 2 plots or 3 plots so that they can build theirs bigger than yours , but at least it’s not too over the top here, like in some of the other clusters. My neighbor has a swimming pool inside his garage
and a pondok on the top of the third floor. I’m pretty sure he has a shrine to himself somewhere in there. But back to the rental.
I couldn’t get a clear shot of inside the house.
It appears to be in pretty good condition.
Some of the places in other clusters are
run down and falling apart.
That’s why it pays to rent to a good tenant.
In the tropics, the mold can set in very quickly in a closed house , closely followed by termites and rodents.
Trees provide nice cool shade.
Tell Lisa the Green BSD guy sent you.
Today , we move round from Monte Carlo to Banyan Ville.
A short jump from the South of France to neighboring Thailand ….?
Not sure what inspired the developers to appoint these luxurious names ? There does not appear to be a lot of correlation with the landscape or architecture , but it does sound luxurious doesn’t it !
The owner of property number 1. today most certainly thinks so !
Satellite dish. Phone tapping ?
Land size is 180m2 . House is 153m2. 4 bedrooms , 4 bathrooms.
Kitchen looks a bit poky. Nice. solid construction of better quality than houses in Vineyard and Monte Carlo. No garage or carport , but you do get a satellite dish and banana tree in the garden. A previous agent put this at Rp.2,700,000,000. Yep . More than a quarter of a million dollars.
Not sure how much LJ is asking now.
There is a bit of construction going on over the nearby boundary, as Sinarmas adds the latest cluster to the Green. So I don’t expect to see this house moving too soon.
- Who you gonna call ?
Monte Carlo is one of the smaller clusters in the Green. It is up in the top back corner, flanked by a local cemetery and local kampung, hidden by a wall up on a ridge. It’s a nice quiet area , furthest back from the main road. Very leafy. Mosquitoes not too bad, but they are around at dusk. Sometimes a bit of a smoke problem when the neighboring kampung decides to burn off. The RT is looking into this.
There are a few houses here for rent and sale. They are not moving as fast as houses in Vineyard or Manhattan. Perhaps the asking price is a little high.
Here’s a look at a couple of houses in Monte Carlo currently on the market.
I’m not a Real Estate agent, my current job is driving me nuts though, so I’m thinking about property. You can call the Real Estate agents direct from the number in the photo.
Agents will usually put a commission on the going price. Depending on the interested buyer, they may jack it up a notch or two . In case they ask where did you hear about the house, it would be cool if you mention this site.
House number 1.
This is a small-ish house for rent. Quiet street. One of the less shady streets though. They’ve cut down a lot of the original trees here.
This ones been on the market for about 2 years now.
Probably needs a bit of maintenance.
Might be chance for talking down a price or rental period.
Romeo , Romeo ! Where fore art thou ?
Zoom in and give them a call.
No rush on this one.
Down by the River.
House Number 2.
Monte Carlo G10-3. Dijual.
This guy has a home-made sign.
I would say he’s given up on the agents.
House has been empty for a while.
Garden is quite over-grown, but looks likeinside was recently done-up.
Across the road from the river. Bit of a dark aspect, but I quite like this one.
Big rooms and big downstairs living room.
All other houses on this street have sold
rather quickly in the last 2 years.
House For Sale…you can read it on the sign.
Living Room. Complete with painter’s ladder !
