Individuals within the vicinity of the Abu Dhabi Gate City (previously called the Officers Club) could not help but notice the rows of massive villas that ooze class and elegance on the opposite side. These homes, more than a hundred in all, form part of The Hills, a gated community located near the beach and the Mussafah Bridge.

The community features only five-bedroom villas in a relaxed setting – some with their own private swimming pool, others with straight access to the waters. Residents looking for a property with lots of room to move about and plenty of light streaming in through large windows would certainly need no convincing to part with their savings once they have viewed the development’s residential offerings. The three-story units come as semi-detached, terraced and stand-alone with four distinct designs to choose from, and with incredible views of the beach and the Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

Each villa has en suite bedrooms, a guest bedroom, maid’s room, driver’s room, veranda, garden and a spacious parking area. Furthermore, each home is fitted with quality fixtures. A wrought-iron balustrade was added to the design, perhaps to give a rustic feel to the modern interiors.

The developer had seen to it that every resident’s need for leisure and fitness pursuits is being met. The whole compound is dotted with facilities and amenities that include a health complex with a community pool and gym, several children’s play areas, a football pitch, tennis courts, a beach volleyball court and a mosque all integrated into a lush landscape. During the winter months, when not engaging in any sport activity, residents may take a stroll at the beach or the walkways.

With its manicured landscapes and plenty of open spaces, The Hills perfectly exudes a community feel, allowing homeowners to interact with each other. It also provides residents with easy exit to the mainland and other emirates.

Overall, The Hills is an ideal development for families with kids and executives who won’t settle for less when it comes to residential properties.
