Dubai: Dubai has recorded its costliest deal so far this year – a villa on the Palm going for Dh111.25 million plus. The property has been bought by a Swiss investor, and will now be placed in the holiday home market.
The One100 was listed last year, and the seller had even lined up a slew of add-ons such as a luxury car, a Harley and much more to attract the attention of a buyer. The initial asking price was Dh120 million.
According to a senior spokesperson at Luxhabitat Sotheby’s International Realty, the final price was settled for Dh111.25 million. But the new seller will not be taking the Rolls or the Harley.
The villa spans three floors and with a built-up area of 14,000 square feet. It hosts 5 bedroom suites with the master-suite extending to 1,300 square feet.
“Due to the ‘wow factor’ of the villa and the video receiving over million views, you would get many people wanting to see the villa in person,” said Leigh Borg, Managing Director of Luxhabitat Sotheby’s. “However, only a small percentage of the clients had the actual budget, so we had to shield the villa from this, carrying out the necessary due diligence on clients visiting.”
