Milford - Cliff View condo buildings Phala

Recommended Posts

We are looking for a seaview condo in Ban Chang. Around 1 million b. Does anyone know the history of the white condos along the beach road. Why some parts look good and some a complete mess ? Anyone with a friend that wants to sell (other then the ones with a for sale sign) ?

I think the Milford is mainly used by people who are from out of town and stay weekdays while working in Rayong/Maptaphut.

If you take a look on the other side of the road opposite the line of shophouses on the slope, go past milford on your left then past Phala cliff on your left you will see where I mean on your right.

Not sure about prices but in that area because of the motorway from Bangkok connecting the area and Utapao airport expanding the locals are asking for big money now.

You can get a seafront house with absolutely no ownership or land papers for anything from 20,000,000 to 30,000,000 baht if you fancy and some people have done so because the papers will be ok 'soon'.!!!!!!!

There's a house, ocean front in downtown Phala Beach. Price is 16 mil.

 

The supposed new 7-11 coming to town won't help prices either. Land prices for building site are also nutty.

First line sea front is lovely , but keep in mind that within short time,  you would need to put in extra maintenance as the salt in the atmosphere,  does havoc on residential infrastructures.

At Milford they have problems with management and lazy staff, the building is in bad condition, no money is being spent on repairs etc.

 

Buyer beware!!!

I think your talking about the town house style on the lower road near the beach.

 

They were built without approval, so they cant be lived in and are just an eyesore.

 

If you are thinking of buying  there, rent first then make your decision.

That is the safe way.

Quite a few places near the beach were abandoned in the 97 crash. A few have had the cracks wallpapered and sold later. I remember looking at the shophouse style places on the slope and the concrete ground floor patios were starting to drop a bit and split away from the main house, that was about 10 years ago. A few have been fixed but not where I would put my money.

The lower road where the original Bella Vista used to be I've heard none of the buildings there have any paperwork to go with them.

Yep. Please note that chanotes on any beachfront property is a myth.

At one time the story was that everything within half a kilometre was the same because BanChang office didn't have any of them. They were all in the office in Klang/Kleng?? for some reason, possibly change of admin area but they never moved the paperwork. But as you say 99% of everything on the beach there is nothing on record anywhere.

If you go down on to the beach at payoon and look up at the Milford you will see some for sale signs, a lot of older ban Chang foreigners stay there, the ones i know all seem happy enough, apparently it has a pretty decent pool.

^Similarly know a couple of people who have bought units in the Milford to live in, and seem very content there. I remember when there were literally hundreds of guys in the Milford during the mid 90's, working on the Maptaphut construction boom then.

-Many complaints about lazy staff and management from 20+ years ago, so it's nice to know nothing has changed then.:smile:

It has two swimming pools but I think only one can be used. Once again NO MONEY being spent on repairs.
