client was looking for a high-rise apartment near subway in Yongsan. There are many high-rise apartment in Seoul, but sometime it could be difficult to locate the high-rise apartment near subway in Yongsan. Yongsan is where few expat areas are located. The expat areas are Hannam, Itaewon and Ichon. Hannam and Itaewon mostly have villa types. Ichon has high-rise apartments, but many of them are not near subway stops.
We were able to find a high-rise apartment near subway in Yongsan. The top floor of the apartment is 36 floors. It is connected to Sinyongsan Station (line 4). As a result, it is very convenient to take the subway. The subway line 4 goes to the old downtown area (“Myeongdong”) and it also goes to near Gangnam area.
The size of the apartment is 142 square meters. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 washrooms and it was very well maintained. The view from the window is not bad. But the view can change because of the new construction in front of the apartment building.
There is a E-mart (supermarket) near the apartment and it is walking distance. And there is also a shopping mall with the E-mart. Therefore, it is very convenient for shopping. As the shopping mall has a movie theater, people can enjoy the movie easily. Normally the movies at the theater are in their original language with Korean subtitle.
As the location of the apartment is relatively good, many expats are looking at this apartment. The asking price of the rent is KRW 6,000,000 per month. This apartment is with the advance rent payment for the full-term of the lease up front like other apartments in expat areas.
