Community Guide: Damac Hills
The Dubailand district that stretches across the centre of Dubai was once a distant suburb, set far away from the main city without ease of access, and an area that prospective residents approached with a twinge of doubt. Since the late 2010’s, however, the district has blossomed into one of the most popular areas for families, thanks to the establishment of fantastic and expansive residential communities. The latter, which is the flagship community of property developer Damac, represents their first foray into designing a master planned neighbourhood.
1. Award-Winning Community
Handing over its first units in 2017, Damac Hills did not take long to establish itself as a prime family neighbourhood. That same year, it was also heralded ‘Best Mixed-Use Development’ at both the Arabian Property Awards and the International Property Awards, two of the most prestigious accolades in the world of real estate. Damac Hills has come to be known as an incredible golf community over the years, and is an area that is known for its very competitive prices.
2. The Neighbourhood
While Damac Hills is primarily a family community, it is no stuffy suburb. The neighbourhood has been designed for a contemporary lifestyle, a fact that is reflected in its overall design aesthetic. The homes are effectively divided into three different sections - overlooking the golf course, overlooking the park, and overlooking a scenic roadway that takes its inspiration from California’s iconic Rodeo Drive (there are only apartments in this last section).
Townhouses are available in three to five-bedroom configurations, with the three and four-bedroom types offering different size options. In terms of independent villas, there are five and six-bedroom units - there are also a limited number of four-bed, but only in Trump Estates. For apartments, you have low to mid-rise residential blocks offering studios and one to three-bedroom units. The apartment buildings also have larger townhouse units on the ground level.
3. Life at Damac Hills
Golf is without a doubt one of the cornerstones of Damac Hills, perhaps not so surprising given that the Trump golf course is spread across almost 21 million sq ft or nearly half of the land area of the community. The course was built with the desert in mind, incorporating the natural landscape into its design to create a solid challenge for even the most experienced of golfers. It also has a floodlit 9-hole course for nighttime golfing.
Damac Hills villas for rent also feature an expansive park area that covers nearly four million square feet and stretches along one side of the community. The park features outdoor sports facilities such as football pitches and tennis courts, lakes, a stable and horse riding field, a petting farm, a skate park, and much more.
Damac Hills forms part of the southwestern block of Dubailand surrounded by other well-known communities such as Mudon, Remraam, and Arabian Ranches Dubai. It borders Emirates Road and enjoys an easy connection to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road. This positions the community so that it is less than a half-hour drive from Dubai International Airport and the new Al Maktoum International Airport.
