It is always a pleasure to present some of the most exquisite homes on the market. But some of Dubai’s true gems lie hidden away, accessible to only a select few who know about them. This mansion for sale in Dubai Hills Estate is one of those secret listings, representing the ultimate in luxury.
This is a Contemporary style house, but you will be able to tell just from one glance that it is very unique in comparison to its neighbours, with its blend of grey and warm white tones. As you enter the front gate, you are treated to the sight of a courtyard that could belong in a palace, with a central water feature and animal sculptures, including two lifesized stallions outside the front patio.
A 30-meter high glass canopy takes you to double wooden doors that are framed against a brightly painted wall. The centrepiece of the ground floor is a cantilevered staircase that winds its way upwards. Made of marble with a glass and gold rail, this is the largest cantilevered staircase you will find in any home anywhere and it immediately grabs your attention. To your left is a living room with a glass wall that opens out to the patio on one side, along with a home office that would be the envy of any Fortune 500 CEO. Inside the living room, and indeed on almost every wall of the house, you will find the most stunning artwork, comprising an extensive collection of pieces from various artists around the world. These art pieces are not a part of the offering, as they are part of the owner’s private collection. However, they can be sold separately if desired.
There is a formal dining room at the back, sitting next to an informal lounge and a gorgeous presentation. A door on one side leads into a service kitchen the likes of you would expect to be run by Gordon Ramsay or Heston Blumenthal. Both kitchens have been designed by Goettling of Germany, with custom-built cabinetry, marble-topped counters and professional-grade appliances from Miele, Liebherr, Quooker, Siemens and Dekton.
On the other side of the floor, you will find another incredible lounge with a marble bar, as well as a guest bedroom. You can either go up to the first floor in a private lift or by climbing the marvellous staircase. If you choose the latter option, you will be treated to several more beautiful art pieces on the walls around you, until you are up on the first-floor landing, which is effectively a mini art gallery with a seating lounge. The remaining bedrooms branch out from this space, including an immense master suite located along with one of the rear corners. The master suite is divided into several distinct areas – there is the bedroom itself with a sitting space, there is an entire separate sitting room, two balconies, including one with a Jacuzzi, a stunning master bathroom and a large walk-in closet. In fact, one of the key features of this home is that every bedroom, from the guest suite to the master, has a walk-in closet with a completely unique design, as well as individualized en-suite bathrooms and private balconies. Truly, no two rooms are alike.
Aside from the master suite, three of the bedrooms are of particular note – there is a kid’s room with playful wallpaper and a lovely hand-painted mural on the ceiling, a bedroom belonging to the lady of the house with a very feminine design aesthetic and a very large dressing room, and a stylish modern bedroom that belongs to the villa owner and features a professionally equipped audio production studio inside, complete with a soundproofed recording booth. There is also a safe room on this level, with 3 safes weighing in at a total of 500kg.
Moving up one more level takes you to a lovely rooftop lounge that wraps its way around the side of the house and enjoys the most beautiful panoramic views of the community, including the magnificent Dubai Hills Golf Course. You can glimpse the Dubai skyline along the far horizon, with the Burj Khalifa towering high in the sky.
The basement level of this home is another incredibly unique space, the likes of which you will not find anywhere else. There is a games room complete with a bar, vibrant artwork and dining tables, making it almost like one of London's trendiest bars. It even features separate men’s and women restrooms, a feature you expect in a high-end commercial establishment. Adjoining the room is a very cosy seven-seater home cinema with plush leather seating and technical specifications worthy of a chain such as Vox or Roxy. The other side of the basement is the home’s wellness and relaxation space, and it almost feels like stepping into another world. The garage doubles up as a nightclub when needed. Complete with a top of the range lighting system already installed ready to wow your guests.
You have two separate gymnasiums with top-of-the-line equipment, a massage parlour with a strong Thai/Indonesian design aesthetic, and a separate room with a Jacuzzi and a skylight finished completely in wood and bearing design influences from India. Though perhaps the most impressive part of this area is its main passageway, which also draws its design inspiration from India. The passage is topped by a vaulted marble ceiling and is composed of separate stone tiles rising out of a small stream. You will have the sense of being back in time, exploring a palace in the Orient.
The backyard, which can be accessed from the ground floor and the basement, is centred on an infinity pool and Jacuzzi. A water feature extends from the pool and flows around to one side of the yard. Here you will also find a patio deck, a pool deck, a gazebo with a skylight, a BBQ station and a dining space, as well as a lawn. There is a landscaped trail along one side of the villa dotted with benches, and one corner of the backyard is set up as an amphitheatre. Not only is this perfect for hosting a weekend gathering with a large group of friends, but you can also host any number of special events here, including what could be the most spectacular backyard wedding.
The amphitheatre is adjoined by a marble-topped bar, and there is ample space on all sides to put in plenty of seating space.
Every aspect of this mansion’s design is breathtaking. There are over 35 varieties of marble used throughout the home, sourced from Brazil to Italy. From the flooring of the ground level to the bathroom fixtures and kitchen work surfaces, each element has been expertly designed, adding a touch of elegance without spilling too far into the garish. Over a dozen high-end design brands have furnished the bathrooms, including Gessi, Gerberit, Flaminia and Scribe. Home automation is provided courtesy of Lutron and Control 4, locks from Invixium, cameras from Samsung, and over 200 solar panels. There are 110 trees in the backyard, brought in from various countries, including Holland and Thailand.
Located in one of Dubai’s most prestigious neighbourhoods, this mansion enjoys proximity to the Dubai Hills Golf Club and its world-class clubhouse that features a wide range of facilities as well as two premium dining options in the form of Duck Hook and Hillhouse Brasserie. You will also be a very short drive from King’s College Hospital, the best international schools, Dubai Hills Mall, Downtown Dubai and two international airports.
