Annual rent: for a five-bedroom villa in Umm Al Sheif, Dubai: Dh600,000
Features: Covering nearly 10,000 square feet, this property is huge, with covered parking for four cars, security cameras throughout, two storage rooms and a separate maid’s room.
Pros: Almost entirely glass-fronted, the living spaces in this property are bathed in natural light. There’s a big swimming pool out front, and some pretty wacky design features within, including a 1,358-square-foot glass-ceilinged basement, which is home to an enormous wall mural.
Cons: From the blue-glass facade to the grand-looking chandeliers, this property is not subtle.
They say: A wonderful modern residential villa in Umm Al Sheif.
We say: The location, between Mall of the Emirates and Burj Al Arab, is excellent, and there’s plenty of space for larger families.
