On the market: Dh59 million villa with Palm Jumeirah's largest private pool
Want to live a private life but still be in the heart of the action?
If you do, and you have Dh59 million to spare, there’s a villa on the market at Palm Jumeirah that would be ideal.
The Mediterranean-style property is located right at the tip of Frond K, which is one of the private VIP fronds on the Palm. The villa is only one of four at the tip of the frond and, as a result, it offers spectacular, sweeping views looking out to prime hotel and beach resorts.
This 7,000-square-foot home comes with five bedrooms and six bathrooms. It sits on a 20,500-sq-ft plot that includes Palm Jumeirah’s biggest private pool – an Olympic-sized, infinity pool curving around the outside of the villa. There is also an external Jacuzzi, a barbecue area and a majlis.
Inside, the villa has undergone a wide-ranging refurbishment, with a contemporary-style finish employed. A black-and-white colour scheme has been adopted that provides a brightness to a property that already benefits from plenty of natural right. The feature living room space is a bay offering a 270-degree view of the crescents beyond. The brand new open kitchen with an island cooking facility also has light streaming in from one side of the room, as does a neighbouring dining area. Marble has been used extensively for kitchen countertops and for most of the floors running throughout the property. There’s also a pantry, a storage room, a laundry room, maid’s room and a drivers’ room. Bedrooms upstairs have walk-in closets and four wardrobes.
Due to its location, you’re virtually guaranteed to be undisturbed by traffic, but if you want to create your own, the villa comes with four parking spaces.
And if the tranquillity becomes too boring, an array of five-star resorts awaits on the Palm’s two crescents, while simpler fare is available from shops, cafes and other new facilities along the Golden Mile.
q&a on a secluded VIP frond
Luxhabitat’s luxury sales director, Alexander von Sayn-Wittgenstein, tells Michael Fahy about the benefits of seclusion:
What would you say the standout feature of this property is?
The fact that it is right at the end of Frond K – one of the VIP fronds on Palm Jumeirah, and is therefore extremely private. Only a few villas are nearby so there is very little passing traffic. It also has an Olympic-sized swimming pool that wraps around the entire house. The property has also recently undergone a two-year programme of renovations. Everything has been replaced and with designer furnishings throughout.
Who would live in a house like this?
It would make a great family home, especially for people who want to make Dubai their new home, because of its location. It has five bedrooms, and the fact that it is at the end of a cul-de-sac where kids can carelessly run around and play at the beach gives a greater feeling of security.
What about the facilities nearby?
There are lots of hotels nearby with great beach clubs and sports facilities. The Atlantis and the Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah are perhaps the two closest, which offer lots of choice in terms of F&B. There’s even the Aquaventure water park. In addition to these, the new W Hotel will open next year, adding seven more restaurants and bars. The new Nakheel Mall is also under way and will bring a whole new lifestyle to Palm Jumeirah once it is completed, making it a self-sustaining community.
