A 2-bed condo with excellent location in Seoul

A nice, cozy condo, two bedrooms, 1 bath, and 1 living room with great location in a vibrant neighborhood. I put this unit for rent for two academic terms (fall 2019 – spring 2020) because I am spending my sabbatical in Washington DC during the time.

Due to its excellent location, the condo is really one of the most popular residential options in the area among Korean natives (everything is nearby but it is still quiet and safe, and the condo is relatively new with ground and underground parking availability). Just steps away from hundreds of ethnic and western restaurants, cafes, pubs, shops, a Lotte department store, clinics (and a major hospital including emergency room), theatres, grocery stores, bus stations, cultural centers and Konkuk University. A 7-minute walk to metro (Konkuk University Station, lines 2 and 7 across), 10 minutes to Han River park (excellent for jogging and biking as well as kayaking) and to national park for children. Within 40 minutes via public transfortation to many other major points in Seoul (e.g., 38 minutes to Kangnam and 35 minutes to Eulgeero via metro). Even with all these conveniences, the condo is still quiet and serene because it is in the condo-concentrated area.

The condo is furnished with TV, air conditioner, refrigerator, washer, bed, sofa, desk, wardrobe, table and chairs, stove, microwave, and even LG Styler (steam clothing care system). The full bath has a tub and a shower. As common in rental practice in Korea, the price of $1200 per month does not include monthly utility fees and access to cable and internet. The utility and condo maintenance usually costs about $100, and you could add access to cable and internet (price differs depending on companies, but internet access may cost about $20-40/month).

Free parking with both ground and underground parking availability. This is a uniquely excellent figure of this condo, when considering that in this area, not many condos have underground parking spaces and they suffer from lack of parking spaces. Parking space is not individually designated, but there are almost always enough parking spaces. Meanwhile, because public transportation is excellent in Seoul, and this condo has excellent access to public transportation, you will probably not need a car.
