Homes with the Finest Outdoor AreasFebruary 27, 2019
As we head into March, the weather in Dubai is as pleasant as ever. It won’t be long, though, before the infamous summer heat starts to creep in. This is the perfect time to be enjoying the outdoors with family and friends. The homes we have curated below give you the option to make the most of the winter weather without having to leave your backyard.
This picturesque home has a sense of design that comes straight out of the Italian countryside. Tiled roofs, covered verandas, stone walls and yawning arches form the key exterior features of the villa. Inside, you will find a similar aesthetic, with a combination of tiled and parquet floors, as well as wood doors and fitted elements such as wardrobes and stair rails. A lawn with a pergola stretches across one side of the villa, leading to the back porch, which overlooks a gorgeous pool deck that also features a plunge pool. The yard is surrounded by gorgeous landscaping and looks out onto the 16th hole of the Earth course.
A villa on Palm Jumeirah is always a fantastic option for relaxing and enjoying some quality time outdoors. This four-bedroom home on Frond D has been heavily upgraded, opening up the rooms on the ground floor to create a greater sense of flow in the living areas. The kitchen has been refurbished as well, and custom elements have been crafted for the bedrooms. The real highlights, however, are the well-manicured front lawn and the gorgeous marble-floored pool deck that wraps around to the side of the villa and connects to an outdoor dining space. The deck leads to a lovely private beach that is perfect for a weekend barbecue.
The interiors of this villa are spectacular, with rich walnut finishes warm-coloured stone tiles. Many of the interior fittings and design pieces have been custom built, including a stunning bar table in the main dining room and a curving glass wall in one of the living rooms. The front of the villa features a stunning landscaped garden designed by award-winning firm Terra Verde. The backyard, also done by Terra Verde, is set up almost like a nature resort, framed by lush greenery and a selection of mature trees. Part of the patio setup includes a beautiful wooden bar made from the trunk of a single acacia tree. There is also a lovely swimming pool that’s been designed like a pond, along with a Jacuzzi and a water feature.
This villa, located in Dubai’s greenest residential neighbourhood, is all about elegance and simplicity of design. The architecture is contemporary, with straightforward lines and clean cut angles, and the interior makes use of muted colours and sharply defined patterns. The exterior space is similarly uncomplicated in its presentation, though it is expansive. A vast lawn stretches out behind the villa, surrounding a U-shaped infinity pool with a stone deck that leads over to a shaded seating area with an outdoor dining setup.
