There is no place like Dubai for eye-catching real estate. The emirate’s spectacular penthouses and sprawling mansions enable imaginative owners to realise any creative vision they have, regardless of the time, cost, or effort required.

An excellent example is an 8-bedroom property in Dubai’s exclusive Emirates Hills neighbourhood that was recently listed on the market by haus & haus, the city’s leading real estate firm.

Along with a range of luxurious extras, this unique mansion boasts its very own ‘Aladdin’s cave’ specially constructed on the ground floor – complete with stalactites hanging from the ceiling and rocky nooks.

“If you’re looking for wow factor, I’m not sure you can beat a huge luxurious cave in your home to relax in after a busy day,” commented Jake Matthews-Hubbard, Sales Consultant at haus & haus. “This is the type of extravagant living that has made the Dubai real estate market so globally famous. I’m sure this unique, rather magical home is going to get snapped up fast.”
