Property buyers seeking a new home in the midst of lush golfing fairways are spoiled for choice in Dubai.

An obvious location is Emirates Hills - especially for those with deep pockets. And then there is Jumeirah Golf Estates, where residents can take in the atmosphere of the Race to Dubai European Tour climax each year with the world's best golfers shooting it out for the sport's biggest financial prize.

But, for those seeking an alternative community complete with leisure on the doorstep, there is Victory Heights in Dubai Sports City.

The development has been split into seven villages - Carmen, Esmeralda, Estrella, Fortuna, Marbella, Novelia and Olivia, with each having a Spanish theme.

This property, which has come on the market priced at Dh11 million, is situated in the Novelia village and contains six bedrooms and gardens that back on to the 18th fairway of the The Els Club.

Devoid of traffic noise thanks to its cul-de-sac position, it features a tiled roof, arched windows and a warm sandy colour scheme to give it a Mediterranean aesthetic.

Set over two storeys, it has an open-plan living area on the ground floor which opens out on to an impressive back garden with a pool and decking. One bedroom with en suite is set on the ground floor, while the other five, all en suite, are on the first floor.

Set on a plot of more than 15,000 sq ft, the built up area comes in at just under 10,000 sq ft, meaning that space shouldn't be an issue.

“Victory Heights is, in my opinion, a highly underrated neighbourhood,” said Andrew Cummings, managing director of LuxuryProperty.com which is marketing the property.

“When most people think of golf communities in Dubai, Emirates Hills and Jumeirah Golf Estates are perhaps the two that come to mind at once, but Victory Heights benefits from its relative anonymity."

Prime residential property values in Dubai have risen by 5.1 per cent over the five-year period to the end of 2017, according to Knight Frank’s 2017 Wealth Report.

However, residential sales prices have in general declined over the past two years in Dubai. Cavendish Maxwell said last week that average residential property prices registered a year-on-year decline of 2 per cent in the first quarter of 2018.
