Playing host to the DP World Tour Golf Championship since 2009, there’s no doubt that Jumeirah Golf Estates is one of the region’s most prestigious and sought-after residential golf communities, offering a wide range of world-class golfing facilities as well as a collection of the most beautiful, individually designed homes for families that you’re likely to find in Dubai.

If you were quick off the mark to own a property in Jumeirah Golf Estates already, then you’re amongst Dubai’s savviest residents having already sought out your luxury home or investment in a much-needed haven, away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai.

However, there’s more excitement and buzz that’s starting to come from the gates of Jumeirah Golf Estates once again, as Aladndalus, a collection of gorgeous Mediterranean-inspired luxury apartments and townhouses have launched in answer to Dubai’s demand for affordable housing – and they’re much more affordable than you might think.

Whilst Jumeirah Golf Estate, might have once felt like a pretty remote spot in Dubai’s sprawling landscape of residential developments, it’s now perfectly positioned for the school run to many of Dubai’s leading schools and nurseries being just 15 minutes drive from the Palm Jumeirah, 15 minutes from Dubai Marina and Al Barsha and only a few minutes away from the site of Dubai’s much-anticipated Dubai Expo 2020 and Al Maktoum International Airport.

Not only is Jumeirah Golf Estates placed to provide convenience for families needing all-round accessibility to every inch of Dubai imaginable, but it’s a community that offers greenery and natural beauty as well as outstanding facilities like restaurants, children’s play areas and a Clubhouse known for bonding neighbours over community events.

Whilst the world-class Greg Norman designed golf courses, Fire & Earth, and first homes of Jumeirah Golf Estates consisted of a massive 1,119 hectare land parcel and 16 separate residential communities incorporating more than 2,000 constructed and under construction properties, the new Mediterranean themed Alandalus development is much more compact, spanning 10 hectares with more than 6 hectares set aside for the development’s lush landscape alone.

Alandalus reflects the calm of its natural surroundings with rolling landscaped gardens, flora and fauna and even boasts a retail space and plans for a hotel development, as well as a Jumeirah Golf Estates’ second Clubhouse that will be super-convenient too.

With large indoor spaces, windows and balconies and high-end fittings, it’s outdoor living spaces include jogging & cycling tracks, a gym, swimming pools and tennis courts, making Alandalus the perfect fitness-focused family lifestyle set amidst an array of natural beauty and wildlife.

This vibrant new community that’s typical of Spanish flair will be home to 715 one, two, three and four bedroom apartments.
