7.44am 29th May 2008 - Property

Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai’s premier residential golf community, has today launched sales for its luxury Fire villas at Juniper Way. The week of sales runs from Thursday 29 May until Friday 6 June and will be hosted at The Royal Ballroom, The Palace at the One&Only Royal Mirage in Dubai.

The Fire villas at Juniper Way, being developed by Jumeirah Golf Estates, are a distinctive collection of 70 four-, five- and six-bedroom villas, each offering commanding views over Greg Norman’s magnificent Fire course. Designed using traditional Tuscan-style architecture and materials, all come complete with landscaped gardens, spacious courtyards, studies, basements, swimming pools and double garages.

Homeowners have a choice of eight architectural styles and three interior schemes, designed by independent UK designers Sedley Place. Exclusive Poggenpohl kitchens with Miele appliances are installed as standard, as are ‘smart home’ solutions and Bang & Olufsen audio-video equipment.

Plot sizes vary from 8,000 to 15,000 square feet with 70 select luxury properties available for purchase during the sales event.

Alan Rogers, group chief executive officer, Leisurecorp, the owner of Jumeirah Golf Estates, said, “We are delighted to launch sales of Juniper Way today – the last of the Leisurecorp developed properties on the Fire course at Jumeirah Golf Estates. The Juniper Way properties will be truly stunning, incorporating some of the most advanced and stylish features on the market.

“Sedley Place- the appointed designers of Juniper Way’s luxury interiors – has done an amazing job at using luxury brands to design not just lavish interiors , but spectacular family homes.”

David Spencer, chief executive officer – Golf for Leisurecorp, added, “People – golfers and non-golfers alike – choose to live on residential golf developments because of the beautiful natural environment that surround them. At Jumeirah Golf Estates, we have already received strong interest from local and international buyers and I expect demand for these properties to be significant. Juniper Way residents are set to be the envy of both the golf community and aspiring homeowners globally.

“On top of living in spectacular homes overlooking Greg Norman’s stunning Fire course, homeowners will be within putting distance of the European Tour Centre, and able to take advantage of its impressive facilities, right on their doorsteps.”

The Fire course is one of four elementally inspired courses being developed at Jumeirah Golf Estates, and will be ready for play by the end of 2008. The first Jumeirah Golf Estates homeowners will move into their communities during the first part of 2009.

This launch follows last week’s announcement that Leisurecorp is to acquire the historic Turnberry golf resort in Scotland, the host venue for the 2009 Open Championship, for £55 million (AED 385 million).
