Community Guide: Jumeirah Islands
Along the western stretch of Dubai, you will find some of its most popular waterfront areas. This part of the city is perhaps best known for its towering skyscrapers, especially with neighbourhoods such as Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Beach Residence and Jumeirah Lake Towers clustered here. You get direct access to a stunning yacht marina, the beach and a series of man-made lakes, respectively, surrounded by an ambiance that has a buzz similar to the heart of New York City or Los Angeles. But look a bit beyond these districts, and you will find a calm oasis known as Jumeirah Islands.
Of the 50 clusters that make up Jumeirah Islands, 46 are residential. It is primarily a villa community, featuring 736 homes in four and five-bedroom layouts - 16 villas per cluster - plus an enclave of 31 luxury mansions and a collection of townhouses. The villas are divided into six architectural styles with three distinct interior layouts and have an average size of between 5,200 to 7,200 sq ft.
These homes are inspired by the French Riviera and Spain’s famous Costa del Sol, infusing large modern spaces with bright, sunny colours.
These homes take their inspiration from the desert, with architecture that draws from Mexico, Egypt and the traditional homes of Dubai.
Tropical & Contemporary
These are much rarer than the other 4 styles, with Tropical embodying a refreshing island vibe and Contemporary sporting a sleek, minimalist look.
Larger than the standard villa, the mansions have built-up area in excess of 8,000 sq ft and feature majestic mid-century architectural design.
Each of the Jumeirah Islands villas for sale has one of three distinct interior layouts - Entertainment Foyer, Garden Hall and Master Views.
The Entertainment Foyer layout features a foyer/lobby space on each level of the home, while the highlight of the Garden Hall layout is a vast double-height living room/lounge. The Master View layout is larger than the other two, with open plan living and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.
A newer development that occupies the northeastern corner of the community, Jumeirah Islands Townhouses comprises 84 lovely contemporary homes. Each townhouse spans two levels and features four bedrooms, and has a rooftop terrace.
Jumeirah Islands offers a unique waterfront lifestyle just a stone’s throw away from one of the city’s most vibrant commercial districts. The clusters are situated around a series of man-made saltwater lakes, and there is plenty of greenery all over, with walking trails, playgrounds, and benches for you to relax and take in the scenery. With plots that span an area of between 8,500 and 14,000 sq ft, each villa benefits from a very spacious garden and plenty of yard space.
As a community that is geared towards family life, Jumeirah Islands provides easy access to many of the best schools and hospitals in Dubai. There is Dubai British School in the neighbouring community of Jumeirah Park Dubai, Emirates International School at The Meadows, Arcadia School, Al Furjan British School, and many others, plus a large number of nurseries within a small radius. In terms of healthcare, you have Mediclinic, Medicentres, HMS Clinic, Aster Clinic, among others.
