Designed to be Dubai’s ‘breath of fresh air’, the joint-developers Emaar Properties and Meraas Holding describe the Dubai Hills Estate development, just south of Downtown Dubai, as a, “city within a city”. In fact, it’s one of the best-selling off plan projects of 2016.

All things considered, Dubai Hills Estate will create a new community in Dubai. Eight impressive projects will make up the whole development. In the middle is an 18-hole golf course, part of the stunning greenery within The Dubai Hills Estate. In effect, the off-plan development will bring nature and scenery to the desert, with a number of premium properties aimed at those with families looking to live the ultimate in luxury lifestyle.

For this reason, the plot sits on over 11 million square meters. It will allow members of the community, who buy off-plan, to even design parts of their dream home, therefore giving owners total control.

Another key point, is along with stylish modern villas, the new ‘city’ will include retail centers, hotels, schools, heath care and sporting facilities. In other words, Dubai Hills Estate has it all.

To keep the communal areas of the Dubai Hills Estate in pristine condition, a team of qualified gardeners will be on hand. So, they’ll take care of the maintenance of the trees, hedges, grass verges and plants, giving residents more free time to spend with family and friends. However, if buyers do wish to get their hands dirty, they still have their own private garden to maintain.
