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.
Rawdat Al Hamama is district in the municipality of Al Daayen and located about 18 kilometres to the north of Doha. Together with 11 other districts it makes up zone 70 of Qatar. It is situated between two major highways, the Doha Expressway also known as Al Shamal Road (Q1) to the west and the Al Khor Expressway also known as the "Al Khor Coastal Road" to the east. As part of the Qatar National MasterPlan 2030 the plans indicate that Rawdat Al Hamama will become one of two District Centres in Al Daayen. It is anticipated that it will serve the needs of between 30,000 and 50,000 residents of the local community in the south of the municipality.
There are no plans for a Metro station to serve the area, instead there will be a high frequency bus service that will provide transport services for the residents. Currently there are not many homes in the area for rent but it is expected that as the expansion plans for the area unfold there will be more residential rental opportunities in the future.
