THE first luxury beach villas to be marketed by The Pearl-Qatar, the $2.5 billion island being reclaimed off the Qatari capital of Doha, have gone on sale.
The La Plage West villas make up the first of three sea-view La Plage neighbourhoods which will provide investors with one of the most prestigious addresses in the Arabian Gulf.
In total, the La Plage districts – which will hug the meandering coastline of the island’s entire southern fringe – will feature some 198 villas. Those on La Plage West will look out onto Doha and have superb views of the capital’s mainland beaches.
“These villas, being designed by award-winning US architects RNL International in association with KEO International, will be individual dwellings of superb quality based on the Mediterranean style in keeping with The Pearl-Qatar’s Riviera Arabia positioning,” said Nick Bashkiroff, development director, The Pearl-Qatar. “We expect them to appeal to discriminating investors looking for spectacular locations and discreet style.”
The six distinct villa designs, all with their own private pool and beach frontage, range from three to six bedrooms. Investors, many of which will be seizing a ground-floor opportunity to enter Qatar’s only freehold property market for overseas buyers, will be offered three purchase options. The first involves a choice of plot and approved villa design and villa construction by United Development Company (UDC), the developer and promoter of The Pearl-Qatar. The second alternative involves the investor choosing a plot and villa design and appointing his own construction company while the third involves choosing a plot and designing and building their own villa in accordance with UDC guidelines.
