Al Barari a Flagship Development of desirable and environmentally designed Villas
July 4, 2017
Located adjacent to the royal enclave of Nad Al Sheba and accessible from Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (E311), Al Barari is the flagship development of Abwab Real Estate. With Phase I almost completed, Al Barari has succeeded in its vision to create one of the most desirable, environmentally-conscious developments in the UAE.
Literally meaning “wilderness”, Al Barari was designed to be a true desert oasis. Sixty percent of the development is made up of green space that envelopes the 216 palatial-villas. Beautiful themed gardens, with over 5.4 km of naturally landscaped lakes, freshwater streams, cascades and waterways, make Al Barari the lowest density development in the UAE and more akin to a botanical garden than a residential community.
A commitment to sustainability and responsible eco-conscious development means that Al Barari’s architecture, landscaping and infrastructure actively embrace good environmental practices. The villas employ an acute awareness of natural light and shade, and have been grouped in leaf-shaped clusters to minimise the impact of infrastructure on the land. Each residence supports its own energy-efficient home system and residents are encouraged to recycle domestic waste through the underground waste system that separates organic from inorganic waste, while being invisible and odourless. All the water that is used for the irrigation of the landscape and waterways is recycled water that is then cleaned and polished in the on-site polishing plant.
The landscape’s high density planting keeps the ground cooler, reduces evaporation enabling the use of less water; irrigation is controlled by state of the art computerised Central Control System which constantly communicates with irrigation controllers and weather stations installed in the field. This ensures application of precise quantity of water with no wastage, for healthy plant growth. In fact, the level of plant density has resulted in the creation of Al Barari’s own microclimate.
Phase I has seen the handover of the majority of the 216 villas (The Residences and The Reserve) to residents, and completion of six themed gardens and the region’s largest privately-owned plant nursery Green Works, which covers 3.3 million sq ft and currently produces over 500 plant species. Phase I also saw the launch of the unique concept restaurant, The Farm, health club Body Language, and Heart & Soul spa and wellness. Phase II will see the creation of a resort hotel, school, medical and retail offerings and further residential development in addition to Seventh Heaven, Ashjar and The Nest.
Al Barari’s ethos, to give residents boundless living – a continuous space between outside and inside, a place for contemplation and relaxation – is the product of the Zaal Mohamed Zaal’s passion to create something never before seen in the region. With Phase II planned to be completed in the next five years, developments such as Al Barari are ushering in a new way of living in Dubai, a city not readily known for its environmental credentials.
The Nest collection totals 55 contemporary villas available in two different types. Each villa features four ensuite bedrooms, a formal sitting and dining area, fully equipped kitchen, as well as a maid’s and driver’s room, private 9×4 m swimming pool, outdoor shower, barbeque area, landscaped garden and garage for two cars.
The Nest offers the perfect balance of community and privacy. Luxury finishes will include high-end materials and floor to ceiling glass windows to enhance natural light and fuse indoors with outdoors. The beautiful homes boast expansive views of landscaped gardens and are adjacent to the Royal Nature Reserve.
