Dubai's Ultimate Family HomesDecember 17, 2018
With Christmas just around the corner, the air is full of festive cheer and for most people, this is a time to be spent with family. And indeed, there is no better way to spend quality time than in a gorgeous new family home. Dubai has, over the years, become a top destination for those seeking to establish their primary residence and as such, the city has a collection of fantastic homes for the discerning buyer to consider. Below, we have curated some of Dubai’s ultimate family homes, ideally designed to craft holiday memories.
Sienna Lakes, Jumeirah Golf Estates
Jumeirah Golf Estates is the quintessential family community, divided into several beautiful neighbourhoods of charming Mediterranean-style homes. The heart of the community is taken up by two world-class golf course - Fire and Earth - and this lovely villa in the Sierra Lakes neighbourhood is ideally positioned to overlook the Fire course. The home is set over three levels, featuring an open plan living and dining space along the back that overlooks a backyard pool and a well-designed kitchen with Miele appliances. The basement can be used as a media room or home cinema and the villa also comes with a two-car garage and, as is typical of homes at Jumeirah Golf Estates, a golf buggy port.
Hattan, The Lakes
The Lakes is a well-established community in Dubai and is known for its beautiful Arabesque architecture. This villa is part of the Hattan enclave, and features a unique interior layout. The main living areas are located along the ground level, along with a gorgeous kitchen and dining room that open out to the back terrace to create a larger entertaining and dining space. Four bedrooms, including the master suite, are spread out around the first floor and there is a fifth bedroom located on the roof, surrounded by a large open deck that offers 360-degree views of the community and the Dubai skyline. At present, the room is being used as a home office but can be repurposed into a grand master suite or a rooftop lounge.
A companion neighbourhood to The Lakes, The Meadows is another established area that is ideal for family living. This distinctive villa combines the comfort of a family home with avant garde interiors and sense of design that one might expect in an art gallery. A white interior palette is contrasted by black accents and occasional splashes of bold colour, and each room contains a sculptural element or art piece that gives it a unique dimension. All of the appliances and fittings have been supplied by renowned brands including Siemens, Liebherr and Miele, and an Electron home automation system controls the ambient systems of the villa.
Part of the expansive Mohammed Bin Rashid City project, Sobha Hartland contains the only villa community that is located right alongside the Dubai Canal. This five-bedroom home has a very contemporary exterior design that is complemented by a sleek interior layout. The entire ground floor is open plan with a double-height living room and a seamless connection to the back terrace. There is a family room at the center of the first floor, surrounded by the principal bedrooms.
As the name suggests, District One is the premier community in Mohammed Bin Rashid City, boasting perhaps Dubai’s finest homes. This upgraded villa is a fantastic example of what you can expect, featuring beautiful marble flooring, Swarovski light fixtures and professional-grade appliances courtesy of Gaggeneau. There are other charming touches such as a piece of living artwork in the kitchen and a bedroom that has been repurposed into a spectacular walk-in dressing room.
