Although the desert influences the aesthetic of the homes at Arabian Ranches, it certainly isn’t reflected in the look of the community itself. Lush greenery and tree-lined avenues surround each neighborhood, and two pristine lakes grant some of the villas a lovely waterfront setting. As a self-contained and family-oriented locality, it also contains schools, hospitals and shopping destinations.
