Until now, the priciest apartment sold in Dubai went for a huge AED60milion. But this new pad on the Palm Jumeirah has been swept up for a whopping AED102million and we can see why. Based inside One Palm by Omniyat, the property is the largest of three triplex penthouses in the building and, at the buyer's request, comes with a 20-meter-long rooftop swimming pool, despite the building having three shared ones for residents.
The new owner has 29,800 sq ft to play around in, which consists of five en-suite bathrooms and a few living rooms. The outdoor areas alone make up 11,500 sq ft of the place; it has several terraces, balconies and a rooftop area.
If you want to be this anonymous buyer's neighbor, prices for three-beds in the building start at AED12.5million. The building is on the eastern tip of the Palm island's trunk and offers gorgeous views of the Marina skyline as well as unobstructed glimpses at the Arabian Gulf.
Residents can dock their yachts on a private jetty when the 90-unit residences are complete in 2018 and buyers have a choice of two interior styles; one from Japanese firm Super Potato, "known for its chic and modern fit-outs", or London-based luxury design studio Elicyon, known for "opulent rich textures and famed for its involvement in the renowned One Hyde Park building."
The One Palm Clubhouse will have indoor and outdoor cinemas, a BBQ area, residents' lounge, children's pool and playroom, plus a luxury spa.
Sounds like a dream!
