Integrated communities, or cities within cities, have become a trend in the real estate world. They are created to provide the residents with everything they need under one roof. The UAE is no stranger to this trend. From affordable housing projects to luxurious developments, the country is dotted with self-contained communities meant to give homeowners a secure and convenient lifestyle. Al Forsan Village, located in Khalifa City in Abu Dhabi, is one of these.

The gated community boasts the distinct advantage of being on the mainland, away from the madding crowd of the island, giving occupants the peace and quiet that they are looking for. It features apartments, townhouses and semi-detached villas.

The one to four-bedroom apartments are spread in six low-rise buildings designed in contemporary style. The apartment units boast spacious rooms flooded with natural light, balconies and walk-in closets. The buildings are equipped with a swimming pool, gym and covered car parking areas.

The townhouses, which are nestled in manicured environs, come in three bedrooms and two levels. Each house has a den, a maid’s room and a home office plus a beautifully designed courtyard to boot.

The development’s modern three to five-bedroom villas come in different types. And depending on the type, the homes have airy living areas, gardens, a theatre room, reception room, covered courtyard, family room and huge garage. What sets these particular villas apart from the others is that they are planted with palm trees to afford the homeowners a sense of seclusion and privacy.

The high-end community prides itself for coming up with quality homes, coupled with lifestyle elements, crafted for families and individuals with a discerning taste for luxury. Located just a few steps away is the Al Forsan International Sports Resort with motorsports, paintball, equestrian, watersports, shooting and fitness facilities. Also close by is the Abu Dhabi Golf Club where residents can tee off on winter weekends. The club also has a gym and pools. Furthermore, the vicinity is littered with schools.

Al Forsan Village is a mere ten-minute drive from Abu Dhabi International Airport and 15 minutes away from the city centre.
