Much like key neighbourhoods in London, Paris and New York, there are some areas that will never go out of fashion, that rise above the fray and that will always be top of everyone’s wish list. In Dubai, that place is Emirates Hills. Named after the eternally aspirational location that is Beverly Hills, this gated haven was actually the site of the first ever freehold properties to be sold in Dubai. If you are lucky enough to get the chance to look inside, you will discover beautifully manicured lawns, marble-glad villas in a variety of designs and stunning architectural concepts brought about by Emaar’s initial offering of land for sale in order for buyers to build their own dream home. Emirates Hills certainly cemented the reputation of Emaar as a globally recognised property developer and is generally considered to be an unrivalled master-planned community featuring a harmonious balance of villas, elegant private neighbourhoods, and lush landscaping. Today, the complex is home to some of the biggest names in the region, including the family of the late Benazir Bhutto, the managing director of [Géant (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%A9ant_Casino) Middle East (Mohammed Ayub Shaikh), Abdul Rahiman Abdul Azeez owner of Alpha Smart Security Systems Business and the owners of the Middle East Broadcasting Center and Habib Bank. This might be just one of the reasons why the price tag of villas can often exceed $50 million.
Right in the middle…. Seemingly nestled in its own private cocoon, Emirates Hills is still centrally located for easy commutes to work and school and accessing the more fun activities that fill up our downtime. In fact, for families, its proximity to the best international schools and nurseries, including Dubai British School, Dubai International Academy, Emirates International School - Meadows and Emirates Hill Nursery- Raffles Nursery, makes it the ideal choice. It is only 25 mins drive to DIFC and 30 mins to the airport, which is particularly appealing for the communities’ CEO and international socialite residents.
Uniquely designed…. One of the most unique and attractive elements of Emirates Hills, especially in comparison to the other older villa developments such as the Springs and the Meadows, is space. The plots in Emiratesv Hills are far larger and further apart, so you don’t feel as though you are overlooked or cramped in.vThis unique aspect gives the properties an intimate and personal feel, as well as an added layer ofvsecurity and privacy. Residents can choose from a range of ready-made stylish villas or opt for plots of land on which to realise their own architectural designs, which range in size from 12,000 to 45,000vsq ft. With the beauty and choice offered by this ultra-luxury residential area, complete with 24-hour security and maintenance, and picturesque walkways, it isn’t hard to see why it remains one of the most desirable locations in Dubai.
Everything you could need….. As well as the extraordinary range of properties offered within the community, many of which have bespoke features that you won’t find anywhere else, there are so many amenities and activities to access, you might never have to leave. This world-class project overlooks the green fairways of The Montgomerie Dubai, an 18-hole championship golf course which also comes with its own Spa and exceptional selection of restaurants. There are play areas for kids, supermarkets, luxury retail outlets and even a clinic for all of your medical needs. They really have thought of everything.
