The villa of the father of modern Arab music, late singer, "Mohamed Abdel-Wahhab" hit the market for $7 million.
According to a listing by Sotheby's International Realty Laila Jayyusi, the mansion is clad in marble and features nearly 13,500 sq ft over three floors, and is located in Zamalek, one of Cairo's most prestigious neighbourhoods.
The villa's defining features include ornate wood paneling—carved wood representing "a classic interior design trend originating in ancient Egypt"—high ceilings and light-filled rooms reminiscent of the "elegance of Egypt's golden age".
“Intricate wall paneling, high ceilings, stately wooden staircases, and large, airy spaces are just a few of the elements that cannot go unnoticed. The fact that it was once the home of Egypt’s leading composer and musician adds to its endless charm," she pointed out.
