A villa is a property/house that is usually set out over two or more floors. A standalone villa is defined as a villa that has boundary walls and stands on its own private land. It is not attached to any other building so it is detached, private and literally "stands alone". Standalone villas are not commonly found in Central Doha including most of the districts within the C-Ring Road as they mainly contain residential and office blocks. However, as you travel further out of Doha and beyond the C-Ring Road it become increasingly common to find standalone villas.
The amenities offered by standalone villas vary depending on the price, size and location. It is much more common to find a standalone villa with a private swimming pool in West Bay Lagoon than it is in Al Khor. Standalone villas are good for large families wanting their own private grounds or for companies looking to house their staff. It is quite common to see standalone villas advertised as suitable for bachelor accommodation. If you are specifically looking for a standalone villa, check the details advertised with the agent as sometimes compound villas are advertised as being standalone when they are in fact not standalone but instead the agent refers to the villa being detached from its neighbouring villa as such.
Izghawa is a district on the border between the two municipalities of Umm Salal and Al Rayyan and as a result it is part of two zones of Qatar, the west section is in zone 71 (Umm Salal) and east is in zone 51 (Al Rayyan). The district is predominantly a mixture of urban settlements, mainly in the Al Rayan portion and the rest is either undeveloped, farm land or part of Wadi Izghawa Al Gharbi (West Izghawa Valley), a valley. A beautifully landscaped and well-tended green space has been provided for residents by way of Izghawa Family Park, which also has a mosque, a children's play area, a volleyball court and a basketball court. The park is home to The Centre for the Empowerment and Care of Older Persons, which was initiated to provide services to over 60s within the community. Izghawa Metro Station is currently under construction, and will be part of Doha Metro's Green Line once complete.
The area is served by several bus routes and has good road links with the Doha expressway otherwise known as the Al Shamal Road (Q1) running along the eastern border of the district. There are both international school and local schools that serve the area for all ages and as usual there are supermarkets and plenty of shops and businesses for the needs of the local community. Izghawa is great for families and there are plenty of residential compounds with larger villas and facilities to rent, it is also possible to find apartments for rent in Izghawa too.
