Badr Muscat Hills, Muscat's latest luxury property development, has marked a new first for Oman's property market. Each of the 20 villas in the residential complex will have its own private swimming pool as a centrepiece, meeting the demands of today's discerning homeowner.
Each azure-coloured pool is part of the aesthetic design of the outdoor area and makes a focal point from the interior of each home's expansive use of glass and double-height reception areas. The pools will appear to be floating when seen from inside and will be a spectacular sight at night when illuminated. Their expansive surrounds of timber decking will fast become the most used area of each home and will be the backdrop for many family gatherings and social events.
It is this outdoor lifestyle that will stimulate high demand for these residences when launched for sale later this summer. Chris Steel from Savills Oman, the exclusive selling agents for Badr Muscat Hills, sees the pools as a major attraction for investors looking at buying property in Oman, "Everyone dreams of having a house with a pool. Whether it is for a bit of exercise in the morning, for kids to play in with friends or just a refreshing dip after work, pools attract everyone. There is definitely an increase in the number of houses with pools in Oman and having a local company to design, fit and service them reflects that. We are very happy to be using a local company, especially as the finish is equal to anywhere else in the world I have seen."
Badr (Arabic for full moon) is an exclusive residential development under construction at Muscat Hills, the acclaimed golf course community. Only 20 properties will be available in this limited edition release, offering a unique lifestyle and investment opportunity for the fortunate few. Badr is an ITC (Integrated Tourist Complex) freehold development allowing non-Omanis to acquire a freehold property in the Sultanate of Oman. Freehold property owners are granted a residence permit for themselves and their immediate family members, subject to government regulations.
