Dubai's Ultimate Mansions

15 October 2018 Written by Arpan

The term ‘mansion’ usually brings to mind an area like the Hamptons or an English country estate. However, over the last decade, Dubai has been growing in popularity as the destination of choice for a primary residence, especially among HNWIs.

Al Barari

The interiors have been extensively upgraded, with features like a triple-height foyer topped by a skylight, and an extended master suite that encompasses a bedroom, sitting room and terrace. As if the interiors weren’t spectacular enough, outdoors you will find a 1,300 sq ft pool, a glass-walled gym, a spa, a yoga studio and a two-storey wooden structure that has a dining area on the lower level and an open-air majlis on top.

Dubai Hills Estate

The home is sold as a shell and core unit, which means that as a homeowner, you will have full license to design the interiors as you please. You could go for a design that matches the stunning exterior or a classical look that sits in contrast to it. Although the villa offers a total of seven bedrooms, the utility and layout of the rooms is at the homeowner’s discretion as well. Would you like to have a private study or library room in your mansion? This is the ideal opportunity to do so.

Palm Jumeirah

Floor-to-ceiling windows are present in every room, opening up the spaces to some of the most breathtaking views in the entire city. Key features include an ornate chandelier in the main atrium, a kitchen equipped with high-end appliances from Miele and Liebherr, an aquarium and a landscaped beach-facing garden with a magnificent infinity pool.

Emirates Hills

This seven-bedroom villa is at the pinnacle of luxury living in Dubai, covering an area of 27,000 sq ft and spanning four levels. It is a home that is designed as much for wowing your guests as it is for living in. You have lounges and sitting rooms large enough to host small parties along with a dining room that looks like the private booth of a Michelin-starred restaurant. 

District One

It has a stunning contemporary design comprising floor-to-ceiling glass walls contrasted with angular lines and a high-contrast colour scheme. Offering a staggering 34,000 square feet of living space, this mansion provides the very ultimate in comfort. The interiors have the same dramatic contrasts in terms of colour as well as finish, with elegant and minimalistic design elements. It contains a total of eight bedrooms divided among two levels, along with a large ground floor living room, a basement with a private cinema and a beautifully landscaped pool deck.
