There is no doubt that the UAE is home to some spectacular properties. From penthouse apartments to plush villas with sprawling gardens and incredible pools, it’s a real estate haven.
Each week, The National is showcasing some of the best homes on offer with its Property of the Week …
The key details
The Nest is a four-bedroom home located in Al Barari, a lush, green, eco-conscious development off the E311 in Dubai.
The space has four bedrooms and five bathrooms, comes fully furnished and is spread across 7,463 square feet, on a spacious 20,894 square foot plot.
The property is listed on the market for Dh15,500,000.
What's the story?
There are few properties in the UAE that look out onto a forest, but that is exactly what this property at The Nest, Al Barari offers.
With floor-to-ceiling windows and a kitchen that opens out onto a generous patio, as well as a private pool, an outdoor shower, barbecue area and landscaped garden, this is a home for people that want to make the most of the outdoors.
A contemporary space with an abundance of light, the downstairs maximises on its size with an open modern kitchen. The villa is one of 55 at The Nest.
The Al Barari location offers plenty of convenience as well as dining options. The Farm is a long-time favourite for people who want to retreat to a quiet out-of-city eatery, and coffee shop Third Wave is to open this month.
Next year, three more eateries will open at Al Barari, Levantine restaurant Mez Me, Asian eatery Commune and Ondas, which will serve Mexican cuisine. There is a Waitrose within the community for groceries, as well as a spa, Heart and Soul, where residents (and visitors) can go to be pampered.
Nearby is relaxed restaurant Lowe Dubai, located at Koa Canvas. The homegrown contemporary concept is part of the Nasab creative community, and is noted for its eco-conscious approach to dining.
The brokers say...
What sets The Nest apart from other luxury homes on the market?
The Nest is unique. The properties are modern and contemporary and set in the most beautiful landscaping. If you were to take a photo of your garden and send it to your family and friends, they wouldn't guess you were in Dubai.
What kind of buyers are you seeing for this project?
The buyers who have shown interest in The Nest are end-users who are looking for their family dream home and want to live in a community which offers diversity from the built-up inner-city areas of Dubai.
Are they many other developments in the UAE that are located in as green a setting as The Nest?
The Nest is a one and only project which sets itself apart from other luxury projects in Dubai with its large plot sizes available, the abundance of natural light that flows through the properties from the floor to ceiling windows and the community itself, Al Barari, offering a green oasis for residents to enjoy some peace and serenity.
