More than 4,000 luxury villas spread over 1,650 acres of beautiful, landscaped grounds and with sister communities Arabian Ranches 2 and Arabian Ranches 3 alongside, residents of “The Ranches” enjoy high-end design and builds, unrivaled facilities and leisure options, excellent access to Dubai’s central districts while also enjoying the peace of a desert location.

High-end villas

At first glance, Arabian Ranches villas are recognisable for their stunning Arabian and Mediterranean-inspired design, with a range of beautiful exterior colours, ranging from golden sand to Andalucian yellow, to a soft dusky pink. In terms of size, the smallest Ranches villas are two-bedroomed townhouses in Al Reem and Palmera, which normally have an area of between 1,600 and 1,900 sq feet. For families that require more space, villas with six and seven bedrooms commonly have between 5,000 and 9,000 sq feet of property, while at the highest end of the scale, very large villas and mansions might offer anything from 16,000 to 25,000 sq feet.

With 15 distinct sub-communities, it can be hard to choose which one is right for you. But with a little guidance, you will be sure to find a community that suits your requirements and tastes.

At the more affordable end of the scale, Al Reem 1, Al Reem 2 and Al Reem 3 boasts a lake, two communal pools, a gym, a tennis court, and lots of green areas, making it child and pet-friendly. Spacious terraced villas and townhouses are perfect for families wanting to get away from the hustle of the city but still enjoy a community vibe.

Drive through to Palmera 1, 2, 3, and 4 and you will feel as if you have been transported to the beautiful suburbs of Barcelona, with Spanish-style townhouses topped with slanted tile rooves.
