If you fancy an entire floor of a tower block to yourself, then this penthouse apartment could be for you.
Spread across the 91st floor, it sits right at the top of the Elite Residence in Dubai Marina – the fourth tallest residential building in the world, standing at 380.5 metres tall – with views of Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, the Arabian Gulf and the desert.
But while the penthouse is sky high, so is its price – coming in at Dh55 million.
Of the 91 floors, 76 contain the block’s 695 apartments with the other 15 dedicated to amenities such as swimming pools, spas, reception areas, health clubs, a business centre and a gymnasium.
But for the buyer of this exclusive property, there’s no need to share. The penthouse has its own Jacuzzi and gym and an indoor swimming pool surrounded by glass walls that acts as a central feature in the open plan living space.
The 12,469 square foot apartment offers five double bedrooms, all en suite with their own dressing rooms, three reception rooms, six bathrooms, utility rooms, 24-hour security and staff quarters.
There are also six parking spaces – a must for anyone who lives in Dubai Marina with its limited parking options.
The penthouse has borrowed the tower’s art deco styling, which is complemented by high ceilings throughout, an ultra-modern kitchen and floor-to-ceiling windows that ensure plenty of light where it is needed.
While many penthouses lack outdoor options, this property has several balconies leading off its bedrooms and reception rooms.
The apartment will be vacant on transfer and is sold with all fixtures and furnishings in place. The finishing includes Italian marble, hard woods and tiled mosaics.
“It’s very glitzy and finished to a certain taste. I would describe it as a ‘pad’ rather than an apartment,” says Gregory Lewis, a senior negotiator at Knight Frank, the agent marketing the property.
