After floating restaurants and villas, Dubai now has the world’s first floating house. The Instagrammable residence was once launched by ship and vessel manufacturing business enterprise Seagate Shipyard. ‘Neptune’ is now the world’s first environment-friendly floating house. The floating residence was launched at Al Hamra Port in Ras Al Khaimah, but will later settle in Jumeirah, Dubai.
The Two-Story House Boasts A Glass Pool, A Luxury Hotel & More
To start with, the floating residence sprawls across 900 sq. m and has not one, but two storeys. The villa is nicely outfitted with 4 bedrooms with connected washrooms, glass swimming pool, kitchen, living room, balcony, two extra rooms for workers, and ample glass flooring.
The floating is connected with special hydraulic engines, which lets it float on the water. With Dubai being a major tourist and investment destination, the floating residence will further enhance the emirate’s position. Besides, the lavish bedrooms, the mission will also feature a luxurious resort of 156 suites and rooms, as well as 12 residential floating boats.
Adding extra grandeur to the houses, the furnishings of this property is designed by luxurious automobile organisation Aston Martin. On this, Mohammed El Bhawravi, founder of Seagate Shipyard and project executor said,
“Since the establishment of Seagate Shipyard, we have had the idea of doing this undertaking in Dubai, the land of possibilities. I believe this will create a boom in tourism,” says Mohammed El Bhawravi, founder of Seagate Shipyard and project executor.
The first unit of Neptune has already been bought to Dubai-based businessman Balvinder Sahani, for AED 20 million. The remaining devices of the AED 870 million project will be launched in the near future. The project will be completely executed in first quarter of 2023.
This is no longer the first floating property coming to Dubai. Previously, Dubai launched underwater villas and the images blew our minds away! Take a look.
Live Underwater in Dubai’s ‘Floating Seahorse’ Homes For USD 1.8 Million
The Floating Seahorse is an underwater bungalow because floating bungalows are so passe and because it’s Dubai. This ‘bungalow’ features an underwater master bedroom. It is made of glass, giving you a 360 diploma view of the coral bed all around. A coral bed in Dubai, you ask? It’s going to be created from scratch where the waters will be a safe haven for sea turtles and sea-horses and will be the perfect breeding floor for aquatic life.
The floating sea-homes have three levels. The underwater level will be the master bedroom, the 1st level on the water will be the kitchen and dining region and the pinnacle level will be the solar deck. Don’t worry, you get unobstructed views everywhere thanks to the ceiling to floor glass windows. I hope these guys also supply glass-cleaners.
So now comes the actual question. Would you like to stay in the Floating Seahorse in Dubai? More importantly, will you take me along?
