This $95 Million Lavish Dubai Manse Has An Epic Two-Story Pool, Suspended Glass Bridge, And Dubai Skyline Views
What can $100 million get you? If you’re lucky, a luxury house in Dubai. This super-sized property is located in the exclusive gated community of Emirates Hills, known as the “Beverly Hills” of Dubai for its high-end homes, tree-lined streets, and upscale hotels and clubs.
Just when you think you’ve seen the most opulent home in Dubai, another home—such as this—comes to market. This villa, listed By Leigh Borg of Luxhabitat Sotheby’s International Realty for $95 million (AED 349 million), was designed by award-winning design firm XBD Interiors and is about as lavish as they come. In fact, it’s one of the most expensive homes to ever come to market in Dubai. There’s a staggering 40,000 square feet of space, 10 bedrooms, and 13 bathrooms spread over four sprawling floors.
The custom home was built to perfection with rare materials sourced from around the world. The exterior features a decorative mashrabiya facade, a latticework architectural element used predominantly in Arab countries that protects against the high heat and intense sunlight of Middle Eastern climates. It allows plenty of light, delicate shadows, and airflow to come through the home. There are also floor-to-ceiling glass windows on some sides of the house for added drama and views.
Each floor has an open-plan design with sprawling, double-height living spaces, extra-large living rooms, bedrooms the size of apartments, and plenty of natural light. Many rooms are lined with black and white marble floors or sleek high-gloss lacquered finishings. When it comes to amenities, there are few features this home doesn’t have . The scale of the amenity spaces are also impressive; for example, the home gym is akin to a commercial gym from the sheer size alone.
It has a window-lined wall that overlooks the backyard and the iconic Dubai city skyline. There’s also a Jacuzzi, a steam room and sauna, massage room, home theater, wine cellar, bar, staff’s quarters, a kids’ salt chlorine pool, a library, and a music room. Designer finishes are par for the course in a home like this, like the Poggenpohl appliances, as well as Minotti, Poliform, and Roche Bobois furnishings.
Outside is an epic two-story pool that is stacked on top of one another, Jacuzzi, pool deck, barbecue, outdoor kitchen, dining area, a stepped garden, outdoor showers, and fiber optic lighting. The backyard also has uninterrupted views over the nearby golf course and skyline in the distance. The best part? The ground level connects to the pool and outdoor pavilion via a 38-foot suspended glass bridge.
For sustainably minded buyers, the home is powered entirely by solar energy, thanks to Dubai’s green building regulations. The designers worked with specialists to put photovoltaics within the building’s external cladding to create this solar energy.
The property is situated in Sector E, a neighborhood within Emirates Hills, which is home to large villa homes such as this, each with a custom design and style and ensconced by lush landscaping for ultimate privacy between the homes. The community is known for attracting an ultra-wealthy, international clientele for its luxury residential offerings.
