Properties in Phnom Penh's French Quarter range from US$75,000, which buys 'a cute one-bed duplex apartment with river views', up to US$175,000 for a luxury penthouse of three bedrooms and 250 square metres of living space.

Offered by Claire Brown Realty, and developed by Brocon Group, these properties are in colonial buildings from the 1930s and 40s, and are being sold renovated and furnished. They come with rental guarantees and management is included.

Claire Brown is also fundraising for a project in the heart of Phnom Penh - a classic, iconic building which will be redeveloped, retaining all original features including the bourgeois fa?ade, into a lifestyle destination designed around al fresco cafes and restaurants, high-end retail units, and residential and commercial property.
