Sultan Ahmad Al Habtoor

02 Jul 2013

Al-Khawaneej, Dubai

The country home of the prominent Habtoor family is almost like a museum in itself. Having taken years to complete, at every turn there is something amazing to marvel at – whether it be a colossal chandelier or a mosaic of minute tiles. With influences from the Levant and surrounding region, the interior design of this house has been meticulously and lovingly tended to. Every wall, door and ceiling has been painstakingly hand painted, with the grand dome in the central atrium being the star attraction.

A magnificent art collection that has come together over generations adorns the walls, while exotic rugs inject warmth and colour to the marble and stone floors.

Vast grounds surround the house and run seamlessly into the desert. There is even a sanctuary for Arabian deer within the plot, making this family haven a true escape to the country.
