If you’ve ever fancied owning a luxury home on one of the World Islands, then next week could be your chance.
You might want to get yourself down to the pre-sale event for the new Sweden Villas, which are furnished by Bentley Home (the same brand as the cars).
On August 19, those who have around Dhs55million ($15million) to splash out on a new pad will be at the swanky Burj Al Arab event from 6pm-10pm, if of course they get a confirmation call once registering their interest.
Those taking part will have to declare whether they are an end user, investor, someone who wants to buy or otherwise interested in the homes on the Sweden Island. Sweden is part of the The Heart of Europe area which helps make up the World Islands Master Development in Dubai.
The luxury mansions will include a range of handmade furniture from extravagant materials and left with ‘high-quality finishes that are synonymous with Bentley car interiors’.
Dhs55million is only the starting price and that will increase on the few villas on offer, depending on the plot size. The actual properties are 21,168 square feet and they’re estimated to be ready in the last quarter of 2016 and in time for Swedish-themed New Year's Eve festivities on the island.
Earlier this year, the developer of The Heart of Europe islands, announced details about the underwater villas it plans to build.
Kleindienst Group said it is to build 42 Floating Seahorses, a cross between a villa and a boat which has one floor submerged.
Since it was announced, the company has received a great deal of interest from media, clients and investors in places including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Maldives, Seychelles, The Caribbean, Sweden, Portugal and Norway.
The Floating Seahorse is the first of its kind in the world, essentially a boat without propulsion which has its own plot in the Arabian Gulf, just 4km from the Dubai coast. Each will have three levels, underwater, sea level and an upper deck.
If you like the idea of sleeping under the sea then you’re in luck because the master bedroom and bathroom will be totally submerged underwater, meaning you’ll have views of the surrounding coral reef and marine life.
