Man is known to invent some pretty impressive things, from electricity to cars to now floating homes. It’s a community of villas that are designed to sit half above water and half below water. The premiere community is known as the Floating Seahorse.
The floating houses will be located in Dubai off of the Main Europe section of The World islands. It is pretty clear the these properties take Dubai real estate to a whole new level.
The floor-to-ceiling windows on the top and bottom levels of the homes guarantee amazing views of both land and underwater life.
On the subject of sea life, the developers of the Floating Seahorse are in the works to create an artificial reef. The reef will be complete with marine life, including seahorses.
Josef Kleindienst, CEO of Kleindienst Group told The Heart of Europe about the journey to build the luxury homes. “Many months of research, design and planning have gone into The Floating Seahorse and we are excited to be able to officially launch and build it in Dubai. We are confident that it will set a new benchmark in the luxury lifestyle market worldwide for outstanding innovation, contemporary design and underwater living at its best,” Josef said.
Listed for $1.8 million each, the fleet of 42 homes are selling quickly. Demand has been so high that there are only seven still on the market. Although the majority of the properties have been bought, they will not be fully built and ready for move in until 2017.
