Living in the suburbs is a growing trend seen amongst many home buyers in Sri Lanka. With the increasing property prices in the main city and the reducing land space, the suburbs have become the go-to alternative for many Sri Lankans. Gampaha, which belongs to the Western Province, is the 2nd most developed area after the metropolitan city of Colombo. From houses, to apartments, rooms and annexes for rent in Gampaha, there is a range of housing options to choose from. Whether you are a family of 4 or an individual working in the city away from your home, in Gampaha there is a place for everyone!
Housing in Sri Lanka for bachelors and individuals commuting back and forth from their hometown is mostly an annex or a room. Since these are budget friendly, they are also a great choice to invest in if you are thinking of making an extra few thousand rupees as a landlord. The demand for annexes is high despite where it may be. And many of these annexes are designed with attached bathrooms, making it convenient for the tenants as well. With electricity, water and sometimes meals included, annexes are ideal for temporary living. Though they aren’t as wide and spacious as a house, the annex for rent in Gampaha town is comparatively more comfortable and larger than even a small house in a populated area like Colombo.
Annexes for rent in areas like Borella, Thalawathugoda, Pepiliyana and Delkandaare also in demand, with their location being conveniently located to many businesses and offices. In Sri Lanka, most regions in the Western Province are much more developed than other areas and provinces. This has led to many individuals and families moving in search of housing that is convenient for them and their budget. However, for a family a small annex in an area like Maradana, Koswatta and Pamankada might not be the best especially if the household unit is more than 3. But for students and working individuals annexes in Ratmalana, Bellanwila and Attidiyaare perfect. Though you might have to spend a few hours travelling if your workplace is located in the main city, it is much more convenient and spacious than any other place. Annexes are also available in the central part of the country like Peradeniya, Asgiriya and Mulgampola.
