Enter the house through the main entrance, and you will be astounded by the understated elegance that spans the property. Beyond the foyer that welcomes you, you will notice that there are three distinct living areas; a formal lounge, summer room and dining room. The formal lounge overlooks the beautiful water views and fill the property with light. The makeshift fireplace located in the lounge houses a television for entertainment. Designed with cooling tones, it instills calm and tranquility and is a perfect place for an afternoon siesta.

You also have the option to convert the study into another bedroom. Also located on the ground floor, is your master bedroom suite with attached bathroom. Climb up the stairs and you will find a small landing and access two large bedrooms, each of which have built-in wardrobes and ensuite bathrooms. Large french windows create an airy atmosphere. Each of these bedrooms are immaculately designed to appeal to people of all ages and offer plenty of opportunity to make it your own.
Step out from your formal lounge through the double doors and enter the ample backyard with your private temperature controlled pool that overlooks the golf course. A perfect way to beat the heat during Dubai summers, the area also doubles as an excellent place for social gatherings and cocktail parties overlooking the championship golf course.
