Dubailand

Amanda Line invites us into her stunning family abode Words by Hazel Plush; images by Nasir Rauf

We could all do with a little interior design help from time to time, but for Amanda Line it’s right at hand – her sister Carolyn Hollands is the founder of bespoke service Hollands and Hutton. Together with construction company Under One Roof, the team have transformed the Dubailand villa that she shares with her husband and three sons, re-modelling it into a sophisticated, country mansion-style abode. “I feel like a very lucky guinea pig,” says Amanda with a smile. “We both really like houses, and we both like doing them up, but of course I’m not a typical client!” Looking around the multi-bedroom villa, the sisters’ vision is clear: the home features an elegant blend of chic soft furnishings, warm colour palettes and meticulous attention to detail. The star of the show is the vast dining room, a space in the centre of the property that was converted from an open-air courtyard into a glass-roofed atrium. “It’s wonderful for entertaining,” says Amanda; “over the March 2013

festive season we had 35 people sitting down for dinner. During the summer, we would never have used the courtyard, so it’s great that we can now have it as another room.” A completely re-modelled kitchen – one of the many examples of handiwork by Under One Roof – complements the extra usable dining space, and no fewer

‘It was lovely to work together on the house – it was very important for both of us’ than three living areas provide room for everyone to kick back in formal and informal settings. “We have family and friends over a lot, and the boys enjoy bringing their friends back from boarding school. Rarely does a holiday come around without lots of young people staying in the house, which is great.”

Amanda and her family have lived in Dubai for eight years, and joined Carolyn and her husband and children in the city after moving from Singapore. The Asian influence of their previous properties can be seen in the artwork and curios that dot the house – a charming take on east-meets-west. Now, Dubai is most definitely home. “We feel very settled,” says Amanda. “It’s great to live so close to the rest of my family, and my best friend from school has just moved in a few doors down. It was lovely to work with my sister to make the house feel like a home – it was very important for both of us.” Much of the furniture is bespoke, designed specially for the villa, but a few surprise additions have crept in too: “We’ve got things from Dragon Mart and Ikea,” says Amanda. “It’s amazing what you can find when you shop around. I love Pottery Barn for accessories, and Marina for lamps. It’s a very British aesthetic, but I think it works well with the pieces we

brought over from Singapore. You take inspiration from wherever you live; it’s a lovely combination, and every Dubai house is eclectic.” So does Amanda share her sister’s eye for design? “Yes, luckily. I don’t think there was anything that we disagreed on. Everything we bring to the table, we both like. Because it’s Carolyn’s business, she has had much more time and opportunity to work on the house than I could dedicate, but we both love the process. I suspect that’s why we’ve both moved a couple of times, because we get the chance to do it all again! We’ve just finished this one, but it’s tempting to move just so we can have another project…” Amanda and her husband never intended to live in the villa – “We bought it off-plan and thought we’d rent it out, but when it was finished we liked it so much that we wanted to move in” – but it has proved a labour of love. Close to DIFC and Dubai International Airport, where Amanda and her husband work, Dubailand is a top-notch location – and

‘We intended to rent out the villa, but when it was finished we liked it so much that we moved in’ the growing community is perfect for the quiet family. “There’s a lovely landscaped area where we walk the dogs,” says Amanda, “and the supermarket will be so handy when it opens this year. The area will be more lively when the new school opens nearby, and there’s a vibrant community website which is great if you want help with cleaning or maintenance, or to find out about social events like exercise classes.” Carolyn lives in nearby Arabian Ranches too, so family get-togethers are often on the cards – adding another homely element to the spectacular Dubailand abode. “I love this house,” says Amanda. “All the work that we’ve put into it has really paid off. I really like living here, using it and looking at it – it has been a real team effort, and it’s fantastic that we can enjoy it together.” March 2013

Dubailand: the essentials

Your need-to-know guide to what’s in and around the area Renting & buying

Leisure time

Shopping & eating

Schooling

This is a growing area on the outskirts of the city, but you’ll already find over 100,000 residents in the development. The communities include Layan, Al Waha, The Villa, Remraam, Victory Heights, MotorCity, Arabian Ranches and the exclusive Al Barari area. There are options to both rent and buy properties, and villas (you won’t find any highrises here) come in a variety of shapes and sizes – from Mediterranean-style houses to eco-friendly villas. The multibedroom abodes are very popular with families, and as a result the area has a vibrant community atmosphere – in many parts, at least.

The vision for Dubailand is ambitious: existing attractions include Global Village (a marketplace where you can browse and buy curios from around the world), Al Sahra Desert Resort Equestrian Centre, and motor racing action at MotorCity. Dubai Sports City and Arabian Ranches Polo Club offer sporting activities throughout the year. The line up of planned amenities is extensive, too: so far it includes the City of Arabia mall and theme park, Dubai Lifestyle City (with golf courses and deluxe properties), and DUBAILAND Desert Experience – a vast eco-friendly desert camping ground.

Shopaholics should head straight to MotorCity retail strip, home of over 50 shops, boutiques and eateries. The weekly Friday markets have a distinctly European feel, and are great for hunting down unusual curios and clothes. If you’re looking for something even more intriguing, head to Global Village, where retailers from all over the world sell their wares (and delicious international fare) at low prices. For those in search of a more mainstream bargain, Dubai Outlet Mall is perfect for picking up designer goods on the cheap – the range includes fashion, accessories and electronics galore.

There are many schools to choose from here. Nearby options include: Gems Wellington Silicon Oasis (British Curriculum, Foundation Stage to Year 10 – to increase to Year 13 over the next 3 years, gemswellingtonacademydso.com) and Repton School Dubai (British Curriculum, Foundation Stage to Sixth Form, reptondubai.org). Those with Primary-age children should look to Victory Heights Primary School (vhprimary.com), a new, state-of-the-art, Britishcurriculum school in Dubai Sports City. Planned institutions in the area include Union International Indian school, and two new GEMS schools.

Market update

Independent Finance’s general manager Sam Wani reveals the latest movements in mortgages

Property valuations conducted by mortgage lenders are edging closer to the asking prices of the properties being mortgaged. This phenomenon has been growing since quarter 2 of 2012 and is recognised as one of the indications of rising property prices. Growing demand by endusers has been at the core of the debate, but the supply side is often overlooked. The number of completed and delivered units in Dubai now stands at 354,000. Of this figure, 12,500 were delivered in 2012. This figure is 12% less than the supply during 2011, and 72% less than the supply experienced during 2010.

Looking at the demand side, total investments by Gulf Cooperation Council, Arab and foreign investors reached AED58.6 billion, and the total number of investors reached 18,635. Clearly, demand is now outstripping supply by almost 33%. This is one of the reasons that prices rose significantly in 2012. The latest Reidin figures show a 24% increase in villa prices and a 12% increase in apartment prices. Jones Lang Lasalle reports a supply pipeline of 45,000 units over the next two years, of which not all will be delivered in time. If this pipeline can help match demand with supply, we will prevent a bubble from

building. If this supply pipeline fails to deliver decent numbers over the next two years, we could see a lot of demand pressure on the available properties. Banks are sitting on a liquidity of AED1.12 trillion and they have to increase the credit growth in order to stay profitable. Mortgages are once again the most lucrative and safest lending product in the banks’ product portfolio. We expect to see the number of lenders entering the market rise once again. We will also see more customer-friendly mortgage products giving a wider choice than ever before. independentuae.com March 2013

Ask the agent

Dani Farhat, Residential Consultant

The demand for properties in Dubai Marina is getting higher week after week at a very fast rate. The great thing about Dubai is that everyone has a purpose for being here, and people have a very positive outlook on life. With the banks back on their feet and competing with excellent rates, buyers’ confidence levels are rising, and they are spending less time choosing their properties. There is definitely more demand than supply in Dubai Marina, and with the announcement last month of the new Blue Water Island, Dubai Marina is once again standing in the limelight on the world stage. As realtors, we are all very excited and looking forward to a very sunny 2013. Property prices change frequently. Please visit bhomes.com for the most up-to-date pricing

The organisation places all of the animals in homes, as opposed to cattery premises – “we want to give all of the cats proper homes,” says Lesley – and is run entirely by a force of dedicated volunteers. In 2012, the team rehomed 400 cats through adoption and found foster

‘Dogs are often discarded when their owners leave the country’ care for over 100, but their work is far from complete. “We have between 70 and 90 foster volunteers but adoption enquiries are rare, and there are so many cats that need our help.” It’s a problem that is all too familiar to Jackie Ratcliffe, chairwoman of non-profit making, voluntary-run dog rescue operation K9 Friends. “We home around 300 dogs per year,” she says, “but we have so many others needing to be taken care of. We are sadly short of foster homes, and fostering is something that we are desperately trying to promote. Often, our foster families can’t bear to part with the dogs, so they adopt them. This is wonderful, but it means we have lost a foster home.” K9 Friends was formed in 1988, and boasts kennels for up to 125 dogs and 30 puppies. Like Feline Friends, all of its staff are volunteers, tirelessly facilitating the organisation’s foster and adoption programmes. “Our dogs’ needs always come first,” says Jackie. “We interview anyone who is interested in taking a dog, assessing their situation and ability to look after it. If suitable, we ask them to come in for a second interview and establish which dog would be best for them.”

Dogs often come to K9 Friends after being abandoned – and Jackie cites the transient nature of the city as the main problem: “Many dogs are discarded when their owners leave the country and don’t want to take them with them, but we also get dogs who have grown too big, who have never been trained, or who are not as cute as they used to be. We get them when people get married or when they have ‘accidently’ bred their own dog. We get a lot from building sites and the municipality too.” The lengthy interview process helps to ensure that every pairing is as successful as possible, thus cutting down on future upheaval, explains Jackie. “As long as a dog is considered happy and homeable we will keep it here and continue to try and find a perfect home for it. Our longest timer in the kennel now is Goblin – he has been with us 4 years. He is perfectly happy here and thinks it is his home but of course we would love to see him find a forever home.” The quest for a ‘forever home’ has lead to countless happy endings for both of the organisations, and the animals and families that they work with. “Last year, a cat was found in Karama with a broken leg,” says Lesley. “It was snapped right through. It was brought to us in the evening, so I took it to my home, and kept it in my bathroom overnight. When I took it to the vet in the morning it was clear the leg would need to be pinned. I started crying when the vet told us it would cost AED45,000 to fix – that kind of money can help hundreds of cats, and I couldn’t bear to think of giving up. But the vet, Dr Max, offered to do the work pro bono, so we only had to pay minimal costs. I was overjoyed, and the cat was fostered six weeks later. It was such a lovely home, and the family fell in love with the cat – and chose to adopt him permanently afterwards. It’s happy endings like that that make our work worthwhile.”

A happy ending Through K9 Friends, Jonathan Vickers and his family gave Maggie, an abandoned puppy, a new home. Here, he shares his story

‘The number of cats that need help is in the thousands...’

“I know it’s a cliché, but we didn’t pick Maggie – she picked us. The staff at K9 Friends were very mindful of our needs and listened to our wishes about dog ownership. Walking around the shelter, it was very easy to get a good idea of the different personalities that these dogs had. Some would launch themselves at the doors of their kennels, desperate to get to us and give us affection. Others cowered in the corner, nervous and unwilling to make eye contact. Maggie just looked at us. One of the staff brought her out from her enclosure to meet us. She offered me a pathetic paw. She was quiet and subdued, but she had a friendly and intelligent personality that we were unable to ignore. She had to come home with us that day. Now she is all grown up. As I write this, she is lying at my feet. When I get up she follows me. When I go to work she sulks, and when I come home she’s ecstatic. She loves to play fetch and go for long walks. We often take her into the desert where she can run free. She has loving eyes and big floppy ears. She licks everything she comes into contact with, including us and our baby boy! She comes and finds us when he cries. She is still timid around people she doesn’t know. She loves children and hates bins – we think she was dumped in one. Adopting Maggie has been one of the most rewarding things that we have ever done. She is such a joy to be around and she completes our family.” Could you foster or adopt an animal?

spaces, like lofts – and kitchens because they really are the heart of the home.

The executive director of IkonHouse loves warm, characterful interior design

My favourite space in my home is the kitchen, because it is the core room of any living space. It’s where everything happens. Everybody will have to get through the kitchen at some point in the day.

i live by scandinavian Bauhaus design; I take inspiration from the likes of magazines, blogs, lighting catalogues, retail shops and home exhibitions. I like to display vintage items and art pieces with stories, bought in a special place at a special time. My design heroes are Poul Kjaerholm, Poul Henningsen and Mies van der Rohe.

‘I like to display vintage items and art pieces with stories, bought in a special place’ They live by uncompromised standards when it comes to selecting materials, and in their designs form always follows function. You will find lots of personality in my interior design: I love lounges – particularly airy

no home should be without a top-quality kitchen range. Food is the most central thing that brings people together (even if it’s just for a short amount of time, it will always relate to others). i only buy things that are built to last, so I love the quality at IkonHouse. I can relate to the designer’s thought process and can see how the pieces have developed over time. My next interiors purchase will be a Bang & Olufsen A9 wireless speaker, to be placed in the lounge. ikonhouse.com

“Art is like a colourful cocktail spiced with joy and imagination,” muses artist Shefali Ranthe, and her passion for colour comes as no surprise. Her work, now available at Muse Artz gallery, is brimming with bright hues and playful designs – think abstract portraits with lashings of vibrant oils and acrylic.

Shefali finds inspiration in travel, her children, people she meets, and her mood. “When you look at one of my paintings, I want to give the impression of something,” she adds. “Even though what I’m painting might not look anything like the real thing, I want you to be able to look into that painting and get an idea of what I’m trying to show.” museartz.com.

A statement stand-alone chair is the top spot for guests of honour, and ideal for curling up on tranquil Saturday mornings.

With such a neutral base, inject some vibrance with some bright cushions, and keep outdoor serveware colourful too. Display plants at ground level in funky pots, and seek out dappled shade from trees or a sleek parasol. A bougainvillea plant will bring life to the space too. When night falls, fill lanterns with candles and hang from the boughs of trees or nestle into flower beds for a serene atmosphere.

Party time There’s nothing quite like a large-scale outdoor gathering of family and friends, so make the most of cooler climes by inviting the whole clan round for dinner. For an eclectic, impromptu look, head to IKEA for an array of simple chairs in a variety of designs, and enough fold-away dining tables for a small army (left, ikea. com/ae). For the most sociable space, arrange tables in a line or create a large square layout – perfect for passing food and drink between guests. For shade, if a parasol won’t suffice, hang sheets of material (also available from IKEA) overhead. Every party needs decoration, so look to myriad potted plants to add colour, choose bright table cloths (the more eclectic the better), and serve food on colourful platters.

the country chic look with a smooth dining set, like this rectangular metal range from the Ceramic Collection at ACE (below, aceuae. com). Its mosaic tabletop, handmade in Vietnam, is perfect for spreading out the weekend papers with a pot of coffee. Team with subtle crockery, comfy cushions in neutral colours, and a potted centrepiece for a laid-back, sophisticated style.

This elegant teak range from The Warehouse (left, falaknazthewarehouse.com) is perfect for relaxed family dining or small gatherings, and folds away to save your space when it’s not in use. Built from responsibly-sourced timber from Indonesia, it’s hardwearing and durable too.

If you’ve kids to enterain, a weather-proof trunk is great for banishing stray toys and playthings, keeping the space clutter-free.

“Children love exploring, but this can make a seemingly safe room dangerous. Place a child safety gate on the kitchen door; toddlers should not be able to enter the kitchen alone. For added security, lock all kitchen appliances, and cover all electrical sockets – especially those within kids’ reach. In living areas, place corner guards on all tables, as they will help to prevent cuts and grazes, and door stoppers can protect against trapped fingers. In the bathroom, never leave little explorers unattended, and use a non-slip mat on the floor and in the tub. Spout covers and grab bars can prevent injuries at bathtime too. You’ll find everything you need at DuMa Safe.” dumasafe.com

“Jackloc window restrictors can prevent falls from windows and balconies, and are essential if you have children in your apartment. They are easy to fit, and we have experience of installing them in all types of properties. For maximum safety, all windows above ground floor level should open no more than 100mm, and must comply with required legislation (and have the documentation to prove it). Keyless locks are available, but avoid simple button releases: children have been known to play with them and open the window, so ensure that the design is tamper-proof. For regular locks, always ensure that the key is kept in a safe place, out of reach of little ones.” jackloc.com

Use the child safety lock in the car when travelling, and only make phone calls on a hands-free set, if at all. Avoid distractions such as loud music, and set rules in the car – if behaviour is disruptive, stop in a safe spot and address the situation.

Gluten-free goodies Gluten intolerant dinner guests? Don’t be daunted: Sweet Connection’s Areej Jomaa shares her fail-safe recipes Gluten-free food has never enjoyed a great reputation: often regarded as dull, dry and uninteresting, it is an uncomfortable reality for many gluten-intolerant people. But times are changing, and the Sweet Connection bakery is bringing tasty dishes to the UAE’s diners – even attracting those with ‘normal’ dietary requirements. Owner and head chef Areej Jomaa is quick to banish the stereotype: “My dishes are certainly anything but flavourless! One of my main culinary goals is to bake exciting, delicious gluten-free foods that taste even better than their gluten-containing counterparts. Ultimately, they are favourite foods that are made healthier without compromising on taste.” Visitors to Sweet Connection can

expect to find the likes of cookies, cakes, loaves, pastries and manaeesh – all gluten-free, all hand-baked, and all utterly delicious. Areej’s sister, a celiac disease sufferer, is her inspiration: “It’s in our family, so I’ve always been aware of the condition. I am also driven by all my wonderful customers who are able to enjoy their favourite treats and baked goods without having to worry about tummy troubles or other gastric repercussions. It is my constant goal to create delicious recipes with high nutritional content.” If you’re not a whizz in the kitchen, fear not, you can pick up Areej’s special creations from the Sweet Connection bakery, or order online.
