Best Homes in Dubai: Top Five Most Expensive Penthouses and Mansions

Dubai is a fast-growing city with properties that cater to almost every taste and budget. The largest metropolis in the Emirates is known for its luxury real estate. We present here the most lavish offers available today.

The Sky Palace at Palm Jumeirah

Palm Jumeirah is famous for its luxury villas. However, the purchase of a mansion is not the only way to invest in the luxury real estate of the artificial archipelago. Orla residential complex is currently under construction on the outer ring of the archipelago. A penthouse here sells for USD 104,000,000.

The Orla project links three 13-floor towers constructed based on a design of the famous Foster + Partners studio. In total, the development will consist of three penthouses, three Sky Palaces, as the developer calls them. One of the penthouses already on sale has seven bedrooms and the same number of bathrooms.

The total area of the Palace exceeds 4,500 square metres, and this is more than the square footage of each of the two mansions also featured in Orla. The penthouse has three floors. In other words, to all intents and purposes, this is a personal villa on the roof of a high-rise building.

Orla’s residents have been promised a private beach and several community pools. Meanwhile, penthouse owners will also have two private outdoor pools, one located in the middle of the roof garden with a panoramic view of the city and the Persian Gulf.

The residential complex will have various amenities, so that the residents will have access to most recreational facilities without having to leave the comfort of their home. The community will provide restaurants, a spa, a small cinema, a fitness centre, a yoga and cycling studio, a business centre with two meeting rooms, a library and even a grooming salon for pets.

Solar House with a Double-Storey Swimming Pool in Emirates Hills

Emirates Hills is one of Dubai’s most prestigious and expensive communities and currently offers a four-floor mansion for USD 95,000,000. This is a very spacious villa designed to ensure a comfortable lifestyle for a large multi-generational family. It has an area of almost 3,900 square metres, featuring 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms.

Architects and designers from XBD Collective, who designed the mansion, called it the Solar House. The developer takes pride in how eco-friendly and sustainable it is. As the property is solar-powered, the owner will never have to pay for electricity or water heating.

Incidentally, the house does feature a lot of water. In addition to the bathrooms, there is a spa with sauna and a hot tub, and a two-level pool with lighting. An 11.5 metre glass bridge connected to the house is another amazing feat of the architects.

Other features of Solar House have been announced: a kitchen by the German brand Poggenpohl, a wine cellar, home cinema, a gym, library and music lounge. And this is only the inside. Outside, there is a courtyard with a garden, an al fresco kitchen. and a BBQ station.
