Hands up if you’ve ever toured an open house with no absolutely no intention of purchasing. Yep, us too. There’s something wonderfully satisfying about viewing properties way out of budget and basically fit for a Hollywood star, so allow us to take you on a dream house hunt of Dubai's finest homes currently up for grabs on Zoom Property, the largest real estate website in UAE...
Garden Homes, Palm Jumeirah
If you’re on the lookout for an executive yet casual lifestyle with an abundance of living space (who isn't?) then Garden Homes is the place for you. The villa, on the market for a cool Dhs15.3 million consists of two levels and a glamorous foyer with vaulted ceiling and crystal chandelier. Dreamy. With four en-suite bedrooms, private balconies and sea views for days, we can't imagine ever wanting to step foot off the property.
Emirates Hills mansion
This unique, one-of-a-kind Italian infused signature mansion is designed for serious wow-factor. Built by Engel & Volkers, it features a formal living room with double height ceiling and Murano crystal chandelier. Casual. It will also set you back a whopping Dhs170 million (no, that's not a typo). Also on show in the home is high grade marble from Italy and solid wood wall panel doors. The curtains have been designed by world well-known designer Lorenzo Rubelli, who provides mostly to royal families. You had us at Italian-infused, hun.
One of the most sought-after seafront residential properties in Palm Jumeirah, the Driven-built penthouse is a unique development, with 104 homes spread out over eight different mansions. Each mansion is on the market for Dhs64.3 million and has its own private lobby. Even better, there are just two apartments per floor, so you'll rarely bump into that neighbour you're not keen on.
Five Palm Jumeirah Penthouse
Located in the FIVE hotel North Residences, this posh penthouse by Dacha has four stunning bedrooms, all with en-suites - and the master bedroom faces over the sea towards Dubai Marina. The plush property, on sale for Dhs11.9 million and boasts its own pool, is completely private and allows residents to enjoy all the hotel amenities - from the spa and fitness centre to room service.
