A stunning urban beach house in Dubai is being exclusively marketed by Vela Casa Luxury Real Estate for $16,500,000.
Built to turnkey standards and situated at the end of one of the best fronds on the Palm Jumeirah, this flawless brand-new home offers cutting-edge technology and a ‘no expense spared’ approach to luxury and personal comfort.
Designed by one of Holland’s most respected and innovative architects, the villa boasts double-height oak doors with bronze handles and hinges throughout.
Wrapped in beautifully landscaped, palm-lined grounds with a point blank ocean panorama, the iconic Burj Arab and Burj Kahlifa take center stage.
This prized beachfront home has been expertly adapted for lavish entertaining and flexible modern family living and has been extended to accommodate 9,000 sq ft of built-up area on a 14,925 sq ft plot.
The sophisticated yet relaxed floor plan provides a unique ambiance. The entire entry foyer can be opened up via concertina glass doors to provide seamless indoor/outdoor living, while an indoor water feature flows through the centre of the home into a spectacular 30-meter infinity swimming pool.
Main living and dining areas adjoin the fabulous pool and beachfront terraces, cabanas and gardens. A separate chefs kitchen with top-grade Gaggenau appliances, double dishwashers, custom-made walk-in pantry and wine fridge (plus two additional fridges) service the fully equipped marble entertaining bar, chic living and dining area, plus the large dining room.
A formal living area, separate family room and a superb home office complete the lower level.
The upper level is dedicated to five large en-suite bedrooms with built-in wardrobes (the third and fourth bedrooms have access to the private terrace), including the sumptuous master wing with media room, marble en-suite and enormous walk-in wardrobe with separate shoe closet.
The outdoor terrace features a yoga deck with a state-of-the-art gymnasium fitted with TechnoGym equipment, both overlooking the garden, pool, beach and sea, offering breathtaking views of Dubai’s stunning skyline. Steps lead up to a roof terrace, which contains the most up-to-date and eco-friendly solar panels with near silent LG Inverter AC units.
The furniture, fixtures and fittings in this magnificent villa have been meticulously hand-picked and imported from all over the world with attention to detail you will find difficult to find or replicate in any other property in Dubai, let alone the Palm.
The marble flooring throughout the house is the highest grade of Navona travertine from Italy, all external wood shutters and fixtures are the finest Burmese teak, the internal doors are solid oak with bronze handles, hinges and screws, the bathrooms are all Dornbracht and Agape, and the kitchen was designed by Bulthaupt in Europe using Gaggenau appliances.
Every room has been fitted with a state-of-the-art Vantage Domotica integrated media and lighting system using sensors and touchscreens with full iPhone/iPad connectivity. The entire house has been fully insulated using the latest BASF Technology, the first of its kind on the Palm.
Roof: in line with the architects’ love of functionality even the roof now serves a purpose, it is fully irrigated ready to grow fruit and vegetables and is designed to be an attractive hanging garden.
Fixtures: the pendant lights in the dining room are from Jason Miller New York. A jigsaw vase sculpture from Art Dubai sits on top of a walnut sideboard. The side tables in the library are by Hall Istanbul.
Staircase: each step of the staircase was placed separately out of a solid block of marble, rather than building the entire staircase as a whole.
Master Suite: the master bedroom’s tapered four-poster bed and side tables were custom-designed by Kate Hume of Heijden Hume.
Living and library: a bright family room leads off the library, which has a serene aqua scheme with a beautiful silk rug from Jan Kath and sofas from B&B Italia, accessorized with cushions from Flexform.
Kitchen and breakfast room: a glimpse into the kitchen shows the double touch-screen ovens from Gaggenau. The kitchen was custom designed by Dutch firm Jos Van Zijl, and the bespoke marble hob was sourced from Italy. A central island topped with a white Corian work surface houses handleless cupboards and two dishwashers.
Gym: the gym was originally an open-air terrace that the architect knew would lie unused for half the year, so he built a beautiful extension with sliding glass doors, creating the perfect workout space.
Bathrooms: smooth Italian travertine marble is used on all the bathroom floors and the stone is mounted with its reverse side facing outwards on the walls. Matte black taps are from Dornbracht and the vanity unit is Agape.
