Family villas in Jeddah are usually quite large to accommodate large families, plus household help like maids and drivers. All villas that I have ever seen here are surrounded by high walls to afford privacy for the women of the family.
This particular villa seems to be a combination of different architectural styles that aren’t generally used together in the same design – I’ve never seen castle-like rounded turrets paired together with tall columns.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
