Dubai Floating Seahorse Villas Take Under Water Living To A New Level
Real Estate Developer Debuts Floating Seahorse Villas in Dubai
Austrian real estate and property developer, Kleindienst Group, has recently completed the first of a planned luxury floating villa development in Dubai named the Floating Seahorse villas. The Floating Seahorse villas are set to be part of The World, which is a set of man-made islands off Dubai’s coast in the shape of Earth’s continents. The floating villas will be part of The Heart of Europe project, which is a portion of The World that features “European” islands with names like Monaco, Germany, Sweden, and St. Petersberg. According to the Daily Mail, plans for the floating villas were initially released last year, but now the first model has been built and by fall the first phase of the project will be completed. The first phase will consist of 42 villas which the Kleindienst Group says have already sold out. By 2018, the final portion of the project will be completed with more than 130 villas slated to be built.
Floating Villa Amenities
The Daily Mail reports that the Floating Seahorse villas, which cost $3.2 million each to build, will come with all the high-end amenities one might need while out at sea such as butler service, room service, and a personal chef available upon request. In addition, state-of-the-art technology such as Wi-Fi, TV’s, and touch screen automated systems that control lighting, heating, and cooling will a come equipped in each villa.
Although the villas range in size, the standard layout will consists of three levels of living space. The master bedroom and bath are on the lower level, which is completely submerged in water and features floor-to-ceiling windows for a unique marine life viewing experience. On the middle level there is an open-concept layout which includes the living room, kitchen, second bath, and an outside deck perfect for laying out in the sun or jumping into the ocean for a swim. On the upper level there is a viewing deck which features a glass-bottom hot tub and views of the Dubai skyline.
According to the Daily Mail, over 200 specialists and professionals from 25 different countries have been involved in the Floating Seahorse project.
