Three bedroom apartments are generally less popular in Krakow, as most apartments made for the local market have a smaller configuration. Nevertheless, Hamilton May has responded to demand for three bedroom apartments to buy, mostly from wealthy locals and foreign buyers, and can source such apartments in various areas of Krakow.
An apartment with three bedrooms is referred to in Polish as a four room apartment, as often a room will serve two functions – as a living space during the day and a bedroom only at night.
The standard size of a three bedroom apartment in Krakow is approximately 80-120 square metres, though developers have recently begun offering new apartments in the range of 60-80 square metres with this layout. Some older style block flat apartments will also have three bedrooms, but with an overall compact size and very small room dimensions. Occasionally, larger apartments (often in older tenement buildings) will be between in excess of 120 square metres with a three bedroom layout and very large room sizes.
Due to the increasing demand for three bedroom apartments available in Krakow, Hamilton May always has a good selection of such apartments available for purchase, despite their relative scarcity. Three bedroom apartments can be bought in all parts of Krakow, from the old town to the suburbs, and in various standards, from basic to luxurious.
The price for three bedroom apartments is determined more by the location and standard of the apartment rather than the size. The average prices of good standard three bedroom apartments in the Hamilton May offer are generally in excess of 800 000 PLN. A viable alternative for some buyers in Krakow is to purchase a three bedroom house rather than an apartment, though houses will generally be out in the suburbs and some buyers wish to have an apartment in the city centre within walking distance of amenities and sights. In most modern developments, buyers of three bedroom apartments will also be able to buy at least one protected parking space with their apartment.
