On the market: five-bedroom villa in Abu Dhabi


Annual rent for a five-bedroom villa in Abu Dhabi

Features The property is located in Bain Al Jessrain, or Between the Bridges, opposite Mangrove Village. The five bedrooms are set across three floors. A large, open-plan, glass-fronted living and dining area leads out onto a good-sized garden. The kitchen is also large, with high-quality wooden cabinetry. There is a guest room on the ground floor – all other bedrooms are located on the upper floors, including a separate maid's room and a laundry room.

Pros All bedrooms are en suite, with built-in wardrobes. The interiors get plenty of natural light and there is a large balcony on the top floor. There's also a biggish landing that could be converted into a play area for the kids.

Cons It's a bit of a drive from the centre of the city.

They say The area sits where Sheikh Zayed Road, Airport Road and Khaleej Al Arabi meet, making Abu Dhabi, Khalifa A and Mussaffah easily accessible.
