The Lakes(ELC)

Sometimes the best thing ever is living right on the edge of a city, just out of reach of the bustle but close enough for whenever you want it.

The Lakes is exactly that. Part of the Emirates Living development, it is a gated community with smaller sub-divisions: Deema, Maeen, Hattan, Ghadeer, Forat, and Zula, and. The former three are clusters of independent villas, while the latter three are wonderful townhouses.

Dubai is famed for its high-living, and The Lakes are the picture of sunny homes in green spaces surrounded by luscious greenery, with eleven community parks and pools scattered between the beautifully designed houses and the seven lakes that give the community its name. The wholesome design of The Lakes creates relaxing surroundings that are welcoming to families and young professionals alike, with children running around between the clubhouse and community center, the facilities ranging from tennis and squash courts to a restaurant, a bar, and a supermarket, with the Fitness First Lakes Club offering best-in-class gym services and group exercise classes, with a sprawling lawn area and three pools (leisure, children’s, and spa) with sun-beds and umbrellas. The club is also equipped with a large children’s play area and changing rooms with stream-rooms.

This little blue and green haven is comfortably nestled between two world-class golf courses, the Emirates Golf Course and The Address Montgomery at Emirates Hills. It is minutes away from the two main highways that connect New Dubai to Abu Dhabi and Old Dubai, at the inside edge of Emirates Hills, nearby JLT, Tecom, and Dubai Media City.

Renowned schools in the vicinity are Raffles International School, Regent International School, and Emirates International School, while health institutions within proximity are the Saudi German Hospital and the Rosary Clinic in The Springs.
