4-bedroom properties are those that have four allocated bedrooms. They are sometimes referred to as 4 bhk, meaning 4 bedrooms, a hall and a kitchen. This type of property would suit a medium sized family. There are some 4-bedroom properties advertised as having a separate room for a maid/driver, some have their own attached bathroom too. Technically such properties would be considered to have 5 bedrooms. Approximately 80% of all 4-bedroom properties available for rent in Qatar are villas. The remaining 20% of 4-bedroom homes for rent are apartments, penthouses or townhouses.
It is advisable to check the facilities being offered and also the layout of the property as some agents do not always list all the amenities fully. It is also best to view any properties that interest you in person as there are many aspects of the home that you can gauge better when you visit the property.
A villa is a property/house that is usually set out over two or more floors. In Qatar you can find two kinds of villas: either standalone villas or compound villas. A standalone villa is defined as a villa that has boundary walls and stands on its own private land as a detached and separate entity. A compound villa is defined as a villa that is located within a residential compound or "neighbourhood/society". Compounds vary in size and can be anything from a handful of villas to hundreds in the much larger compounds. Both have their benefits and drawbacks for example, standalone villas offer more privacy for their occupants and compound villas usually benefit from many more amenities, security and maintenance. There is a wide variety of villas available in Qatar with varying amenities and suitable for most budgets.
Lusail is a district in the Al Daayen municipality. The city is truly futuristic and unique in that it is the first and largest sustainable city development in Qatar. This development also known as Lusail City, is comprised of four exclusive islands and 19 districts which are used for residential, entertainment and commercial purposes, with all sorts of amenities to fulfil the needs of the local community.
The city's transport plans are ambitious, but conscious of global environmental concerns of the age. The city will have light rail network: Lusail Tram Network (designed to reduce vehicular emissions and save energy), a water taxi transportation system (which transports passengers to and from Lusail City through the Lusail marina and the main Grand Canal), cycle and pedestrian network, park and ride system (underground parking close to rail networks to encourage use of the rail network), and a shuttle bus system to connect all residential, commercial and retail areas to the public transportation system. Much of the work has already been completed.
The district is in fact designed as a "Smart City". Homes and offices will be fully automated, with a Building Management System for each building. State of the art security services will be available and the city will all be connected to smart metering, smart grid and interactive traffic management systems.
In order to create a greater sense of neighbourhood and community for residents, the city has been planned such that all facilities (i.e., schools, mosques, daily shopping and other basic commodities) can be found within walking distance in each locality. Neighbourhood gardens have also been designed for each locality. Medium and large shopping malls are located in central locations in the city to make access easier. The brand new and iconic Lusail Stadium with a capacity of over 80,000 will be the host for the opening and final matches of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
