Dh30m Dubai apartment could be Business Bay's finest - in pictures

Volante Tower offers the chance to own a whole floor

Everybody needs good neighbours, as the theme tune to the popular Australian soap goes. Not if you have Dh30 million to spend and are looking for an apartment in the Business Bay area of Dubai, however.

For this rather hefty amount you can purchase your own floor in the swanky Volante Tower alongside Dubai Water Canal.

And when you do fancy some socialising, you can make your way down to the tower's own Resident's Club complete with a Far Eastern aesthetic, outdoor terrace and fire pit for the fast-approaching cooler winter evenings.

The club has its own kitchen manned by expert chefs and catering is available should the host wish to feed friends as well as family.

A fitness suite comes as standard, while the spa features a curious horizontal shower.

The relaxation doesn't end there - a private cinema allows a night-in at the movies without the need to book tickets or dodge the flying popcorn.

The main attraction though is the apartments and the opportunity to mix large floor space with waterfront views and the picture-perfect Burj Khalifa rising in the background.

The full-floor apartment, being marketed by luxuryproperty.com, measures 10,000 sq ft and has an open-plan living and dining area with floor-to-ceiling windows.

It comes with five en-suite bedrooms, a private study and living quarters for staff.

The interior design is tasteful with soft browns and beiges, marble bathrooms and a pleasant sense of simplistic homely warmth making it the kind of place where a family may look to put down roots.

Sales prices in Business Bay were flat during the third quarter compared to the second quarter, according to data by Asteco. They were down 8 per cent year on year. Average rents in the area were down 16 per cent year on year, the company's report said.
