Words by Aneesha Rai in Company News · Aug 26th, 2021
Rounding out a hattrick of deals that each exceeding AED 100 million in value in 2021 alone, Luxhabitat Sotheby’s has just announced the sale of a stunning luxury mansion villa in Dubai Hills Estate, which also records as the fastest ever deal from listing to transaction date for a 100+ million AED property, which is in less than a month. This resale deal is the highest value property sold in Dubai Hills Estate to date and has now been purchased by a discreet, high net worth buyer. Although lovingly curated from shell and core by the owner, the current market trends represented an opportunity for resale that was too good to pass up.
Standing Out From The Crowd
Dubai as a location is not short on exceptional luxury properties. This is the city of island paradises, the secluded oasis and the city centre penthouse. Yet a rare few number of homes manage to push the boundaries of excellence that little bit further, and therefore stand to attract the top echelons of buyers from all over the world. That is exactly what happened with this custom-built villa in Dubai Hills Estate. Already a sizeable villa, the owners had a vision to unite chic functionality with effortlessly organic design, inspired by the woods of Switzerland and the ‘Tree of Life’. Enlisting the aid of award-winning experts Infinite Architecture & Interior Design and BW Interiors, they set about creating a meticulously designed home that would utilise dramatic proportions, changing textures, sophisticated lighting and calming hues to optimise the naturalistic environment. Every detail has been finished to the highest standards and makes this a truly remarkable home, from the 4-metre high glazed bi-fold doors that integrate the indoor with the outdoor to the 10 metre drop Grand Staircase light installation made of handcrafted Bohemian crystal glass leaves.
