LuxuryProperty.com is delighted to present this stunning three-level penthouse in Dubai Marina. This incredible home is without a doubt the finest home available in the city and is easily on par with a penthouse in the heart of London or Manhattan.
Occupying the top three floors of the 90-storey Marina 23 Tower, this home is a masterwork of interior design with an octagonal shape that allows it to overlook the most unbelievable 360-degree panoramas of the entire city. Every aspect of the design is just phenomenal, from the colour scheme to the layout and the choice of materials used. Gorgeous white marble flooring has been used throughout the home, adding a sense of grandness without being overwhelming to the eyes. Dark wooden furniture and fabrics in sharp neutral colours provide a smart contrast. Full-length windows frame every single room of the penthouse, so you never lose sight of the jaw-dropping views no matter which part of the penthouse you’re in.
The journey through this spectacular home begins with a large open plan living room, dining room and kitchen, the latter of which has been outfitted with beautiful stainless steel appliances. Walking past the kitchen, you will find a spiral staircase leading to the first floor and a wide terrace with a view spanning Emirates Hills and Dubai Marina, with the skyline leading toward Abu Dhabi just barely visible in the far distance. Coming around, you will find two bedrooms side by side, both en-suite with very elegantly finished bathrooms including custom-built tubs and walk-in showers. Each bedroom also has a small lounge facing the windows and a retractable smart television that rises out of a shelving unit in front of the beds. The televisions can be fully rotated so they are either facing the beds or the lounge, allowing for a customized viewing experience according to your mood.
The bedrooms lead out into a second living room with a terrace stretching out on one side. A double staircase leads up from the living room to the next level, which also gives this room the benefit of a double-height ceiling. There is also an elevator on this side of the penthouse to travel between floors. Yet another terrace opens up past the second living room, this one looking directly onto Palm Jumeirah, with views sweeping around to glimpse the Burj Khalifa in the far distance, looking almost minuscule.
This terrace leads into the master suite, of which the bedroom is a very tiny portion. This immense space is occupied by a large private sitting room with a faux fireplace, cavernous his and hers dressing rooms, and a very elegant en-suite bathroom with built-in Jacuzzi. This room enjoys the same breathtaking views of the Palm, which is just an amazing sight to wake up to every morning. You can even see the upcoming Dubai Harbour project slowly taking shape, which will add another thrilling facet to the view upon completion.
The last element of this level is a professional-quality home gym that swaps out the marble for parquet flooring. The gym is outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment and also includes a shower, steam room, sauna and massage rooms. This room also opens out to the fourth terrace on this floor, which includes a plunge pool.
The second level of the penthouse is divided into two halves that are connected only via the central service corridor. On the side that leads up from the spiral staircase, you will find yourself in a grand double living room with an elegant bar complete with wine cooler, and a stunning home entertainment system. A mechanical sliding partition allows the two rooms to be separated if you want a private screening experience. Two bedrooms are located on either side of this space, each with elegant en-suites.
The other side, leading up from the double staircase, there is a small lounge area with another bar space and two separate home offices. One office overlooks Emirates Hills, while the other is on the Palm-facing side and looks very much like a corporate office suite with dark wood and leather furniture.
The topmost level is purely an entertainment space and can only be accessed from this side of the penthouse via yet another spiral staircase. This takes you up to a large open lounge space, though the first thing you will notice is the towering tree that takes up one corner of this area. The tree adds an unusual and very inviting touch to this space, which is otherwise fairly sparse and is mostly designed for guests to mingle during a big gala or celebration. Custom-installed lighting features ensure that this will be even more of an attention-grabber in the evenings. On one side, the lounge leads into a specially set up DJ booth with built-in sound systems and a small dance floor. There is yet another terrace on this side with bar-style seating, and another terrace extending out from the other end of the lounge and enjoying that stunning Palm view.
Rounding the corner, you will walk right into a large double sitting room with a high ceiling, plenty of seating options and a bar worthy of the best five-star hotels in the city, taking up almost a third of the space. Thanks to a retractable screen and projector installed in the ceiling, you can instantly transform it into the most incredible movie room. There is a terrace located past the living room that is inaccessible, as it contains a beautiful water feature to add to the party atmosphere of this level. This curves around to a very spacious 18-seat dining room with a faux fireplace and a very unique hanging light feature designed in the shape of a cloud. It adds a nice touch of ‘dining under the star’ while still remaining indoors. There is one more terrace past the dining room, which leads to the final aspect of the penthouse – an industrial kitchen that is designed for large-scale catering. It has been outfitted with professional-grade appliances and can easily accommodate a small team of chefs. This is where the canapes for your big party will be prepared, and even more elaborate meals for bigger celebrations. A service elevator located just outside the kitchen allows for quick service to the other floors as well.
The views from all of these rooms really have to be seen to be believed, stretching out in all directions for many miles and spanning essentially the whole city. The topmost level has the highest ceilings in the whole penthouse, easily exceeding 4 meters, really underscoring the fact that you are sitting up on the 90th floor of the tower. Using a well-thought-out combination of wood, leather and marble, every room exudes refinement and elegance to the ultimate degree.
This is a home for the most discerning buyer, one who will settle for nothing but the absolute best that this city has to offer. Indeed, this penthouse offers nothing less. It truly is the most exclusive penthouse in Dubai.
