Online PR News – 28-September-2009 – – London, UK ( OnlinePRNews ) September 28, 2009 – International Luxury Real Estate (www.ilre.com) is proud to introudce new properties available for sale in Al Madina A’Zarqa, a whole new city in Oman.
The Sultanate of Oman, considered by residents and tourists to be the ‘real' Arabia, has taken the development of its property market slowly but surely. Home to just a handful of projects, one of them is Al Madina A’Zarqa which is aimed at the high-end end of the market.
Luxury, by any definition
The prestigious Harat Al Khor (“Community on the Bay”) residences are currently available for purchase and are due to complete at the beginning of 1212. They offer from 93 to 253 square metres of spacious indoor living space. Situated at the entrance to the khor/bay, natural beauty abounds, residents can also enjoy leisurely walks along the waterfront, picnics in the park, cafés, restaurants, shops and luxury boutiques.
The golf villas of Al Madina A’Zarqa will undoubtedly please any golf lover. These luxury residential villas with individual swimming pools and intimate courtyards for entertaining overlook the outstanding 18-hole, PGA-standard golf course which has been designed by Thomson Perrett & Lobb.
The experience of leading architectural design firm Foster + Partners shows in the masterplan as well as in the design of the individual properties. Taking the lead from ancient architectural practices, the masterplan melds wisdom with modern technology. The use of shading, building orientation, natural coastal breezes and local materials gives the development a real connection with its surroundings while ensuring the absolute comfort.
The masterplan is based on the concept of individual but well-connected villages. Each village has courtyards, water features, winding streets and services nearby which create an intimate feel and reduce the need for travel. Designed for easy access throughout, the efficient transportation system will allow easy access to the myriad facilities and services available; from the university to the golf courses, theatres, stadium, spas and wellness centres. Al Madina A’Zarqa will not just fulfill the daily needs of its residents, it will also offer what the Sultanate of Oman is famous for…a welcoming hospitality and a seamless merging of the ancient with the excitement and modernity of the future.
The year-round sunny and warm climate makes the Al Madina A’Zarqa ideal for anyone looking for relaxation and a change of scenery, or for a more permanent residence in a warm, safe and secure environment. And just outside the development lies the natural features that draw so many to the Sultanate: fantastic dive zones with exquisite coral reefs, the towering mountains of Jebel Akhdar and Jebel Shams and the striking desert of Al Sharqiyah Sands. Just at the tip of the peninsula, you will be treated to seeing both the sunrise and the sunset on the horizon.
Only 30 minutes drive from Muscat International Airport, Al Madina A’Zarqa keeps its residents connected.
In 2006, a Royal Decree was issued declaring that foreigners may purchase land and property in the Sultanate of Oman for either accommodation or investment in “Integrated Tourism Complexes” such as Al Madina A’Zarqa. Property at Al Madina A’Zarqa will be owned as a 100 percent freehold and owners and their immediate family will be eligible for a residency visa.
As mortgages are relatively new to the commercial banks of Oman, it’s seen as a market with great growth potential. In turn, very attractive loan rates are available to foreigners making the investment.
