The XLV Residence is possibly the most prestigious and well-crafted home on the market in Dubai. This masterpiece of architecture, design and landscaping is located in Emirates Hills, which is considered the most preeminent address in the city. Homes of this nature are a rarity and indeed this very fine home is for the discerning few.
The home, known simply as The XLV Residence, sits on an immense 37,406 sq ft plot and offers an astounding 50,000 sq ft of built-up area. To call it one of Dubai's finest homes would, in truth, not do it full justice. It features an extensive selection of carefully sourced and curated materials, including Italian and Turkish marble, as well as hand-crafted and custom-created design elements. The interior aesthetic is well-complemented by the exquisite craftsmanship that has gone into the design, and the attention to detail is truly unmissable. It is clear, even from an initial glance, that this home has been designed by someone who truly understands what it takes to create the epitome of luxury. The exterior landscaping and design elements add to this and create the perfect space for relaxing or for entertaining.
An elevated position in the community lets this home stand out while offering complete privacy for the family and for guests. A dual fairway view can be enjoyed from both the pool deck and the upper floors, and the unique fenestration system allows the expansive views to be enjoyed in their entirety.
Upon entering the home you are immediately greeted by a grand etrance hall that features a crystal lighting centrepiece with 412 components and is framed by the most splendid fluted staircase rising up to a galleried landing. This sets the tone for the rest of the mansion, where each of the interior spaces has been designed to elicit a sense of awe while providing the utmost comfort and functionality.
Do you want a place where you can entertain a considerable group of guests? The main living room is immense in size, framed in 3-metre wide windows that run the entire length of the wall. Connecting seamlessly to that is the formal dining room, which is nothing short of a banquet hall. This entire setup is complemented by a marble show kitchen with a central island and top-of-the-line Gaggenau appliances.
Each of the 7 bedrooms is an exquisite work of design as well, with cavernous closets, stunningly crafted en-suites, and their own private sitting areas. The master bedroom takes that up another level with its own lounge, a private office, a dressing room and a bathroom with dual sinks and separate facilities.
The basement level of the home is designed to provide an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. This level contains a large screening room where you can enjoy the world's best movie night, a wine cellar and cigar room that would not look out of place in a home at The Hamptons, a dance floor and games room, plus a nine-car garage with a galleried window so your guests can admire your classic car (or modern supercar) collection.
This home also has a full-staff accommodation setup that includes four bedrooms, plus a separate lounge, pantry and garden.
Wellness is a key part of the design as well. Outside the home, you have a lap pool with water features and a larger swimming pool with a deck, which is also ideal for the children to splash around in. There is a dedicated interior wellness space on the rooftop level with treatment rooms, sauna rooms, a fully equipped gym and a Jacuzzi that lets you enjoy the view as well.
Nothing in Dubai compares to this exquisite mansion - not in terms of design, the quality of material, the intricacy of craftsmanship, or the sheer aura of refinement that it exudes.
This is a home meant for the truly discerning. Few will get to experience its beauty in person, and only one will have the opportunity to call this their new home. The XLV Residence is only available to view by prior appointment.
