About this listing
If you're seeking for ideal, centrally-located digs to enjoy sultry shanghai, look no further. This nearly 70square flat meter lies in the heart of the (former) french concession and has all the most current amenities and decorative flair to boot.
This nearly 70square flat meter lies in the heart of the french concession, meaning lush tree-lined streets and a stone's throw away from the most trendy bars, clubs, cafes, restaurants, and of course, the infamous avocado lady. metro lines 1 and 10 - at the busy and popular hengshan lu and huaihai lu, respectively - bookend the flat's address, yet it remains remarkably quiet.
The actual apartment features a sizeable tile-lined foyer and a two generous rooms with wood floors. it's well equipped, with a full kitchen, large refrigerator, and all necessary cutlery, flatware, dishware to comfortably host. the kitchen even has an oven - for those of you at all familiar, a rare luxury in chinese apartments. the apartment is awash with light courtesy of large windows - both in the morning and during the late evening. the flat also features all designer furniture - including a number of antique Chinese chests, six Eames chairs, and one fine shell chair by Hans Wegner, anchoring the exposed brick wall in living room.
The living room has a comfortable couch, the bedroom features a queen size bed inclusive of all necessary bedding, and there is generous space in the armoire to house all your gear, be they three-piece suits or track suits. the bathroom contains a brand-new washing machine and cascade shower with detachable arm. two brand new air conditioner units and wall heaters keep the apartment cool during even the hottest summer days and toasty during the gray winter nights. the apartment is more than enough space for a single individual, but also lends itself to a couple. fortunately, there is also a cleaning lady that comes once weekly to clean up your mess.
