Inside a $12.2m villa in Bahrain
The five bedroom property could easily fit into the upscale communities of California’s glamorous Beverly Hills
Out of the six countries in the GCC, it is the UAE that is the most distinguished when it comes to luxury property, but judging by this $12.2m (AED45m) villa in Bahrain, the UAE might just be up against serious competition.
\nInspired by European-style, the high-end villa could easily fit into one of Dubai’s glamorous communities or even, dare we say, California’s upscale Beverly Hills compounds. Sotheby’s International Realty takes us on an inside tour.
