On a high


This penthouse in Reef Island, currently available to buy, combines plenty of living space with far-reaching views of the city and the sea

The owners of this penthouse flat in Reef Island love it, and it shows. Having bought it direct from the developer in 2015, they were able to modify the design with new flooring and so on – the result, according to Bilal Mohamed of River West, “is one of the most stunning penthouses on Reef.”

_DSC5919 _DSC5901 _DSC5951 _DSC6063The apartment opens on to a large, open-plan living area, which is subdivided into two sitting areas – one formal, the other centring on a TV – and a dining area, overlooked by the kitchen. French windows open from here on to the long terrace that runs the length of the apartment, providing different seating areas. There is also a separate barbecue area.

The main bedroom has a private balcony with views of the city. The owner notes that this penthouse is one of only two in the development of six buildings with unobstructed views from the bedroom. The adjoining bathroom has a double-size Jacuzzi, walk-in rain shower by Hans Grohe and digitally controlled steam sauna, and the main bedroom, like the other two, has plenty of storage and built-in, padded bed heads.

Additional features include motorised curtains and blinds, reclining sofas, sensor-powered floor-to-ceiling cupboards and remote-controlled lighting. There is also a maid’s room and laundry room, plus access to a swimming pool and gym downstairs.

The owners are offering the penthouse for sale. For them, the flat has been a labour of love. “There is internet everywhere in the flat,” they say, “and the walls contain enough wiring to support up-and-coming technology – we wanted to make life easy in the future.”
