Bonjour les chercheurs d'appart!

Je vous mets en bas le petit annonce de mon appart, qui est disponible ce mois de mars. N'hésitez pas a me contacter avec des questions, français, anglais, comme vous le préférez.

Greetings house-hunters!

I am looking to sublet my massive and sunny 1BR apartment from March 1st for a period of 2-3weeks, (dates are somewhat flexible). The apartment is a luminous and stylishly decorated 1BR (90sqm), directly across the street from Chaoyang Park South Gate. It's located just up the street from all the action of Sanlitun, yet its proximity to the park makes it a very peaceful respite - with slightly fresher air than the rest of the city :)

Living room: Situated on the 20th floor, the apartment commands sweeping views of Chaoyang Park and all the glitzy high-rises over in the Liangmaqiao area. It has a floor-to-ceiling glass terrace in the living room with a high table and electric blue bar stools that makes for a wonderful place to dine. For lazy nights at home, the apartment also has an extremely comfortable oversized L-sofa and a 44-inch flat screen TV perfect for watching DVD's (I have loads of those - have your pick!).

Bedroom: has a huge king-size bed and a very comfortable mattress. It has a huge window with a sill, which I've pretty much turned into a daybed, as it's a great little perch to read from and gets bathed in natural light. I can leave behind fresh bedding, if needed.

Kitchen: is fully equipped with a full-size fridge, small oven (that you can bake in!), and a microwave. There's a fairly diverse spice rack (chili powder from Mexico, rose water from Morocco, paprika from Spain...) that you're welcome to have your way with.

Bathroom: The bathroom is quite large, you can flush paper in the toilet (not always the case in Beijing!). The water pressure is excellent, and the building has plentiful air conditioning and hot water.

Office: The apartment also has a home office, which is where I generally work from. The space basically consists of two desks and lots of art. You can use it as you choose - I think it was meant to be a dining room, and could definitely be morphed into one (I have a dining set and chairs).

Location: The apartment is about a 10-minute walk from the brand spankin' new Jintailu station (line 6) a 15-minute walk from the Tuanjiehu Subway Station (line 10). There's an April Gourmet (foreign grocery store) just downstairs, and an organic grocery store and coffee shop right next to it. You've got your choice of 3 pizza places withina 20 meter radius, and there's also a gym, banks, and a bagel shop right in the compound, which has a very good mix of Chinese and foreigners living in it. The building was just finished just three years ago, so everything in it is new. Although its surrounding area offers many "expatty" conveniences, directly behind the building there's a hyper-local neighborhood filled with small hutongs and a dizzying array of Chinese restaurants, ranging from the glitzy to the "chow down on a curbside stool." There are pharmacies, massage parlors, hair salons, several convenience stores, fresh produce stands, local supermarkets (a big Jinkelong), and plenty of small kiosks selling dumplings, chuan'r, and the best roasted street sweet potatoes in town. Everyone who has tried it with me agrees, the Xinjiang restaurant of the neighborhood - is just downright heavenly.

The Sanlitun Village, which houses Beijing's bastion of foreign restaurants, stores, bars, and the nucleus of Beijing's nightlife (love it or not), is a straight shot down the street.

The rent is 6,500RMB per month, all utilities, plentiful heat, and high-speed wi-fi included. Pics available.

Please don't hesitate to be in touch with any questions and thanks for reading!
