Default Family of 5 expenses, Kuwait. Advice please

Hey folks
I've been given a provisional offer for Kuwait. I already have a great, well paid, but unsecured job (tech lay-offs in ROI). Since going back to London is not an option, we are considering this opportunity, although I skipped a couple of similar offers recently. I am being given house/car allowance of 21000KD.
1. How much would a house with 4-5 bedrooms cost?
2. How much would the expenses be for us provided we want to keep at least the same life style as here (frequent dining out, entertainment, tennis, soccer, language lessons etc.)? School fees, cars, accommodation excluded.
3. I am being offered 4000KD per child. Is that enough for a British CC school?

Thanks

Have you been to Kuwait or worked with Kuwaitis before? I personally could not tolerate working and living with the most racist and stuck-up people in the middle east and the Arab world like the the Kuwaitis. They would have to offer me an extremely very high package to come over.

To be honest, I know who I would be working with, so I don't mind.
