What's the story?

If there was ever an apartment built for an evening sat enjoying a sunset on the terrace, it's this Serenia The Palm penthouse.

On the market for Dh15.5 million, the spacious property boasts floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, sea views and sleek, minimalist decor.

The apartment comes complete with premium Italian furniture and textured wallpaper, from premium brands such as The One and Mercer.

It boasts two kitchens, which have been fully equipped and feature kitchen accessories from top brands Blum, Miele and Smeg.

The three well-sized bedrooms come complete with marble ensuite bathrooms with Hansgrohe fittings. The master bedroom includes a walk-in closet with automatic lighting. Suitable for working from home in 2021, there is a spacious home office set-up, which could also be used as a bedroom.

The jewel in the penthouse's crown has to be the panoramic sea views. From the numerous terraces, prospective owners would look out over Dubai Marina, Atlantis, The Palm and the Burj Al Arab.

The Serenia The Palm development boasts enviable amenities, including an Olympic-sized infinity pool, Jacuzzi, lap pool, tennis court and state-of-the-art gym. It also offers direct access to a pristine sandy private beach with sun loungers, pool bar and free water sports such as kayaking and paddle boarding.

What the brokers say ...

What makes the Serenia The Palm penthouse stand out?

It's a very exclusive and luxurious project. There are only a few penthouses available and only located in the East tower. It has floor-to-ceiling windows, bi-folding doors, a big terrace, as well as views of the sunset, Burj Al Arab, Dubai Marina skyline and Palm Jumeirah.

What type of buyer does a property like this attract?

Probably a European buyer looking for a contemporary, yet cosy, Miami-style holiday home.

The views are exceptional ...

Yes, some of the best views in the city. Sunsets on the terrace are fantastic, but you have Burj Al Arab views from both living room terrace and master bedroom terrace. You can enjoy the morning sun while sitting on your balcony drinking coffee and evening drinks while enjoying the sunset.

Being on this level, you can really appreciate panoramic views, as it's not too high where they are distorted and not too low either. The line of vision is perfect.

The property is beach front, does that appeal to buyers?

Yes, there are very limited developments in Dubai that offer a private beach to its residents, especially the newer, more exclusive, high-quality luxury buildings.

How would you describe the aesthetic of the property?

Pure contemporary, yet cosy with luxurious interiors. The architect Hazel Wong also developed Emirates Towers. She never copies things, everything is unique and she has really outdone herself on this development. Positive vibes throughout – bright and open-plan.

Does the property come furnished?

Yes, with Italian furniture throughout. All of it is brand new with some custom pieces of the highest quality.
