Dh24m penthouse in Dubai's JBR has the 'wow factor' - in pictures
Not to everyone's taste, but it certainly has extraordinary views
Whether you like it or loathe it, there is no denying that this Dh24 million penthouse in Dubai has the wow factor.
New to the market, the property is located in Al Bateen tower, Jumeirah Beach Residence and covers a whole floor of the building.
For those who like a clinical, modern finish this penthouse will be ideal with its many shades of grey and metallic edges all around which have been delivered by a team of European designers. A German kitchen awaits the chef of the home, while Italian marble adorns many of the floors and Fendi furniture completes the style.
"All materials have been selected and assembled from all different places of the world and just been shipped in for this property, to make this experience as unique at it is now," Luxhabitat, the broker marketing the property, said.
The biggest selling point, however, is surely the jaw-dropping sea views which are available from every window.
The full length of JBR beach is visible in one direction with the Palm Jumeirah and Burj al Arab in the background, while to the front is the under-development Bluewaters Island containing what will be the world's highest ferris wheel. As well as from inside the property, all of this can be viewed from the outside terrace.
Spanning a rather large 7,289 sq ft, the penthouse has eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two maid's rooms, a driver's room and a dry pantry.
It also comes with four allocated parking spaces, and the building has a private beach, an Olympic-sized pool and access to the Doubletree / Hilton Hotel.
Property prices have been falling in many areas of Dubai during the past 18 months.
A report issued last month by the property services firm Asteco showed that prices in JBR fell 2 per cent during the third quarter of this year, and were down 3 per cent year on year.
Meanwhile, rents in JBR had fallen 4 per cent during the period between July and the end of September, and had decreased 12 per cent year on year, according to Asteco.
