  1. Hello everybody, I’m sorry if I’m posting on the wrong section.
    I’m really interested to join your community. And I’m planning to buy a house in JVT.
    I saw that a lot of people are selling the town house with a huge garden( plot around 8000sq/ft) is there any particular reason if everybody is selling? I don’t want to buy it and then discover something bad. Any suggestion/consideration is more than welcome! Thanks!


    • Hello Salo88, Thanks for your comment. We’re not aware of anything regarding your question. However, you should of course visit the villa and you could have an inspection done by a qualified architect. We hope that you’ll like the neighborhood!


  2. hello , I am thinking to move in JVT . Any advice will be highly appreciated.
    also, what is the difference between districts ?

    thanks ,
