There are a few homes in the UAE that have to be seen to be believed. Gary Stanton’s Tudor-themed villa – where he has lived with his wife and two children for the past eight years – is one of those homes.
It has taken four years for Gary, CEO of Standish International Oil and Gas Services, to bring his vision to fruition. As well as the opulent interior (including handmade chairs modelled on ladies’ high-heeled shoes), Gary has created a mini-Wild Wadi in the back garden, complete with rock slide and lazy river. His kids love it and so do visitors. It’s no wonder it’s his favourite part of the home.
But that’s not all you’ll find in Gary’s garden. He has also built a nightclub (he says this is his biggest extravagance). Gary is a massive fan of Liverpool FC and has had Anfield’s legendary Shankly Gates painted on the outside walls. Truly, a unique property in the heart of Dubai.
