Sobha Realty Invites Applications for Dubai’s only Luxury Canal-side Villas

Hartland Water Canal Villas

Hartland Water Canal Villas are Dubai’s most luxurious waterfront luxury homes.

Are you looking for a home or investment in Dubai where you can park your yacht, helicopter and fleet of cars? Water Canal Villas are part of the 183-acre resort-style community Sobha Hartland, located within the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City, just a seven-minute drive from the Burj Khalifa.

Fronting directly onto the Dubai Water Canal, Sobha Hartland is a £3 billion (GDV), 8 million square feet (183 acre) waterfront community, providing luxury residences, world-class amenities, restaurants, retail centres, educational and entertainment facilities and includes 2.4 million square feet of greenery in the form of parkland, landscaped areas, planting and gardens.

An exclusive collection of up to 23 villas are available for discerning buyers – by invitation only. International luxury developer Sobha Realty is offering purchasers a unique opportunity to buy and bespoke-build a waterfront villa or mansion fronting directly onto the Dubai Water Canal, the only villa plots available directly on the canal waterfront.

On a double plot, a villa or mansion providing 8-12 bedrooms, garage for 6-8 cars, swimming pool and private tropical gardens could be created.

Constructed between October 2013 and November 2016, the Dubai Water Canal is a £68 million (326 million Dirham) 3km-long canal which extends Dubai Creek from Business Bay to the Persian Gulf; forming a 17km water feature running through the heart of Dubai. At six metres deep and 80-120 metres wide, the canal allows for the navigation of yachts and motor cruisers.

Located directly by the sparkling blue waters of the Dubai Water Canal, Hartland’s Water Canal Villas provides an ultra-prime residential community of nearly 14,000 sqft of land, available for construction of up to 23 waterfront villas, each with garaging for four cars and the choice of private yacht mooring in the canal.

With infrastructure provided by Sobha Realty, purchasers can buy one or more plots of land and create a bespoke villa or mansion, with the layouts, features and specification agreed between the luxury developer and the customer. Alternatively, a purchaser can choose their own contractor and create their own scheme, operating under Sobha’s master-plan guidelines.

Residents can arrive by at Water Canal Villas by private yacht, and park their boat in nearby Marasi Marina in Business Bay, which is around 5 minutes from Sobha Hartland.  The purchase of a canalside plot at Water Canal Villas would allow for an exceptionally spacious six bedroom contemporary villa over three levels, ranging from 17,061 sqft to 19,241 sqft in size, with private swimming pool, garaging for four cars and tropical gardens fronting onto the canal.

Designed for sophisticated and luxurious living, a Water Canal Villa can be customised to provide a range of five-star amenities, including a personal gymnasium, home cinema and private passenger lift. The layouts allow for a spacious entrance hall and long gallery opening onto a grand double-height, double-volume reception room with coffered ceiling and chandeliers, bordered by folding glass walls. The folding glass walls open onto outside leisure decks, the swimming pool and gardens. With the walls folded, a large inside-outside entertaining space is created, capable of entertaining 80-120 guests.

The ground floor also allows for a spacious family room, in addition to a family kitchen and breakfast room. There is also space for two VIP bedroom suites on the ground floor or this could be used as an additional entertaining space. There is also space for staff accommodation with independent access.

The first floor could provide a galleried landing and family lounge overlooking the double-height atrium space. The master bedroom suite could provide a private terrace, bedroom with adjoining day/lounge area, walk-in dressing room and master bathroom. The first floor also allows for a home office/study and three further VIP bedroom suites.

The basement level could provide the private health spa and leisure amenities, including a private cinema and personal gymnasium, together with sauna and changing facilities.

If a purchaser acquired a double plot, a villa or mansion providing 8-12 bedrooms, garaging for 6-8 cars, swimming pool and private tropical gardens could be created. The purchase of a triple plot could allow for the inclusion of a private helicopter pad, although buyers would have to comply with Dubai Municipality guidelines and apply for consent from the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) for a private helipad permit (Annex 14).

Tirthankar Ganguly, Chief Marketing Officer of Sobha Realty says: “The Water Canal Villa plots are unique to Dubai since they are the only villas available directly on the canal. Each canalside villa will be built to each customer’s bespoke specification, creating the ultimate trophy home where the owner can park their cars, yacht and maybe even helicopter. This luxurious low-rise waterfront community is Dubai’s version of the waterfront villas and mansions on the UK’s ultra-exclusive Sandbanks waterfront estate in Poole Harbour.”
