Tucked discreetly behind a row of palm trees a mere ten steps from a pristine secluded beach on one of Palm Jumeirah's premier fronds stands a beautifully finished five-bedroom, six-bathroom luxury villa that's currently for sale.

European in style and offering uninterrupted views of Dubai's turquoise waters, the Marina skyline and the iconic Burj Al Arab, it's easy to see why this esteemed property is one of the most desirable in the area.

According to a Hamptons International property consultant who represents the home, it's not just the views that warrant taking a second look at the luxurious 7,000-square-metre villa - it's also the fact that it's built in one of the most practical and easily accessible parts of the island.

"Whether one decides to make this villa their permanent home or their holiday play place, it's in great proximity to everything one needs to make life easy and enjoyable," he says.
 
"Some people think that living on the Palm - which has declared itself the ‘eighth wonder of the world' - means that they are disconnected from the buzz of the city but that's not entirely true. With Atlantis the Palm just down the road and Shaikh Zayed Road, Jumeirah Beach Residence, well known malls, shops, restaurants and schools only a few minutes away, living on the island gives residents the chance to decide when they want to venture out into the hustle of the main city and when they want to retreat back to the peace and quiet of their beachside home."

Built on a 13,000-square-metre plot in a secure gated area, this two-storey villa was constructed using "top-of-the-range materials, including marble flooring throughout".

Walking upstairs to the main bedrooms one is struck by the immaculate detail offered in all the finishings. Heavy wooden banisters and carefully cut tiles ensure that while the modern space maintains an air of elegance it doesn't lose the tactility a house needs to make it feel like a home.

The villa also offers large windows and doors that open onto the garden and beach, encouraging indoor-outdoor living. Stepping outside one is greeted by a large, well maintained luxury pool and several lush trees and plants. The garden has been landscaped to offer maximum privacy, with minimum obstruction of the gorgeous views surrounding it, because the panoramas are, after all, one of the main draws to this coastal property.

Attached to the villa one will also find a maid's room, driver's room and double garage, which makes this home perfect for a family permanently living and working in Dubai or one that enjoys being well taken care of during visits to the emirate during the holidays.

The villa is being sold unfurnished and with the amount of space available the next owner will be spoilt for choice when it comes to filling the home.
