The Epitome of Luxury Living, This Exceptional Turn-Key Villa Unveils a Harmonious Blend of Architecture, Art, and Privacy.
Dubai, Umm Suqeim, United Arab Emirates
Dubai, known for its awe-inspiring skyscrapers and opulent residences, is now home to an extraordinary villa that stands apart from the city’s architectural landscape. Nestled in the exclusive neighborhood of Umm Suqeim, just a short walk from Jumeirah Beach, this ultra-modern luxury villa captivates with its unique design, meticulous curation of art and furnishings, and an unparalleled sense of privacy. As it makes its grand entrance into the market, this remarkable property invites international buyers, despite being in a neighborhood that is usually reserved solely for Emiratis and GCC nationals to indulge in the epitome of luxury living.
Designed by Viktor Udzenija, a protégé of acclaimed architect Norman Foster, this visionary villa encompasses a sprawling 22,925 square feet of living space. Situated on an elevated 40,000-square-foot plot, the residence boasts a prime location just a short stroll away from the renowned Jumeirah Beach. Every aspect of the home has been carefully considered, resulting in a masterpiece that harmoniously integrates with its surroundings. Central to the villa’s allure is the collaboration between Udzenija and the current owner, an esteemed art collector. Together, they have crafted an environment where art, fixtures, and furnishings converge to create a truly enchanting ambiance. Sold turnkey with all fixtures and furnishings, including a curated collection of fine art and designer furniture, this exceptional villa offers a seamless transition into a luxurious lifestyle. Buyers have the opportunity to step into a fully furnished and art-adorned home, where every detail has been thoughtfully chosen to enhance the beauty and elegance of the space.
Udzenija’s design philosophy for this modern oasis differs from Dubai’s iconic vertical architecture. Instead, he embraces a more horizontal, private, and serene approach. Drawing inspiration from traditional Arabic courtyard houses, the villa seamlessly blends absolute privacy with a light-filled, open atmosphere. Expansive walls of glass invite natural light to flood the interior spaces, which unfold around an enchanting interior courtyard adorned with lush palm-lined gardens, an illuminated pool with sunken seating, and a charming wooden deck.
“The entire house is like a living organism that has been adapted to the environment and that is both shielding the occupants as well as providing them with the best life possible,” explains Udzenija, capturing the essence of this extraordinary residence.
Travertine stone, renowned for its timeless beauty, graces both the exterior walls and the expansive interiors, exuding a sense of texture and warmth throughout the estate. Inside, the six luxurious bedrooms feature exquisite materials such as travertine, exotic marble, and Dutch porcelain tiles. The nine bathrooms showcase the intricate beauty of onyx travertine and Islamic geometric patterns. Adding a touch of tradition, the villa also boasts an expansive majlis, a formal Arabic drawing room, perfect for hosting esteemed guests.
Beyond its architectural marvels, the villa offers an array of exceptional amenities. The professional-grade kitchen is a culinary haven, complete with a handmade crystal dining table and a custom-built piano, ensuring that every dining experience is an exquisite affair. Other notable features include a well-equipped gym, staff quarters, and an underground garage with space for 12 cars, providing ample room for the most discerning car enthusiasts.
As if the architecture and amenities were not enough, the villa’s pièce de résistance lies in its unparalleled collection of art, which accompanies the residence. Showcasing the owner’s impeccable taste and appreciation for artistic brilliance, the collection features masterpieces by renowned artists from around the world. Lebanese artist Ayman Baalbaki’s paintings, Franco-Argentinian sculptor Pablo Reinoso’s painted steel chairs, and a monumental fountain installation by Misha Kahn are just a few examples of the treasures that grace the villa’s walls. French artist Henri Mège’s oil paintings and Emirati artists Abdul Qader Al Rais and Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim’s watercolors and triptych further enrich the artistic tapestry of this exceptional residence. The furniture designs, carefully selected to complement the aesthetic, include works by Rick Owens, Pierre Jeanneret, and Pierre Paulin.
This exclusive property, one of the most expensive listings in Dubai, offers not only luxurious living but also the utmost privacy in one of the city’s most sought-after and secure locations. It is a masterpiece that will undoubtedly captivate international businesspersons seeking a haven of tranquility amidst the bustling city.
“Bridging architectural beauty, landscape design, and an impeccably curated collection of fine art, sculpture, and furniture, this Umm Suqeim villa is simply one of a kind,” shares Bouwer. “It presents a rare opportunity to own a property that transcends conventional luxury, offering a truly extraordinary lifestyle in Dubai’s most prestigious locale.”
