Dubai's Finest Homes Fit For A Formula One World Champion
Last night, Lewis Hamilton added yet another accolade to his stellar career by winning his 4th Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which was his 11th win during the 2018 racing season and a new record on the Yas Marina track. Hamilton already considers Abu Dhabi a second home when it comes to racing, but perhaps he might consider the neighbouring city of Dubai as another home away from home. We have curated some of the finest homes in Dubai that are fit for a Formula One winner, or any car enthusiast who wants to highlight their prized collection.
Hillside, Jumeirah Golf Estates
Located in Jumeirah Golf Estates, Hillside is a community of 20 highly exclusive contemporary villas overlooking the world-class Earth course, where the DP World Championship was held earlier this month. This home is perfectly designed for leisure, offering a top-level ‘penthouse suite’ that enjoys complete privacy and stunning golf course views and a basement with a games room and lounge. The basement also houses a five-car garage separated from the living area by a glass wall, so you and your guests can marvel at your collection while enjoying a game of pool or a cold beverage at the bar.
Desert Leaf, Al Barari
This lovingly upgraded six-bedroom villa can be best described as a masterpiece – from the architecture to the interior design to the landscaping, we love every aspect of it. This home has, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful garden and pool areas of any villa in Dubai. You also have a basement with a plush private cinema and a poker table with authentic chips from Monte Carlo. The highlight, however, is a detached glass-fronted garage located just off the main entry path to the villa. Capable of holding 8 supercars, it makes for a stunning outdoor showpiece.
Hills Grove, Dubai Hills Estate
Sitting along the aptly named Street of Dreams, this gorgeous mansion also looks out over a golf course – in this case, the brand new Dubai Hills Golf Course. There is an abundance of living and entertaining space, along with amenities such as a combined gym and games room, a home salon and a private cinema. The basement also houses an immense garage with a maximum capacity of 8 cars. The garage is accessible internally and externally, so you can bring your guests down after a grand tour of the home or start off the tour by showcasing your automotive collection.
District One, MBR City
One of Dubai’s most exquisite new neighbourhoods, District One offers some of the very finest mansions in the city and is a haven for lovers of the outdoors. The community is centered on the beautiful Crystal Lagoon, which has its own private beachfront, and surrounded by more than 8 km of jogging and cycling tracks. This contemporary home is a great example of life at District One, featuring eight bedrooms, generously proportioned living areas, a private cinema, a sauna and direct access to the lagoon. It also contains a basement garage that can hold up to 6 cars.
Frond J, Palm Jumeirah
Nothing truly defines luxury living in Dubai quite like a custom-built villa on one of the Palm Jumeirah fronds. This home has a stunning stone and glass façade, beautiful marble finishes and a meticulously designed backyard pool deck with direct access to your own private beach. You also have a rooftop terrace that looks out over stunning 360-degree panoramas of the skyline and the Arabian Gulf and would be perfect for hosting a New Year’s Eve soiree and enjoying the fireworks over the Palm. Of course, the home just wouldn’t be complete without a basement garage, which can accommodate 8 cars.
