The Sanctuary, developed by Ellington Properties, is an esteemed master community situated in District 11 of Mohammed Bin Rashid City. Expected to be finalized in the second quarter of 2026, it is the first project of its kind by the renowned boutique developer.
The initial cluster within The Sanctuary, called The Waterside, was introduced in the first quarter of 2023. It offers a limited selection of stunning 4–6 bedroom villas, boasting plot areas ranging from 8,288 sq. ft to 14,383 sq. ft.
Residents can choose from four distinct design styles: The Retreat Villas, The Hideaway Villas, The Escape Villas, and The Oasis Villas. Each design presents unique features and options, all constructed using local materials in adherence to Dubai’s green building codes and a Wellness Initiative. The villas are equipped with energy-efficient cooling systems, low-noise appliances, eco-friendly lighting, and water-saving plumbing fixtures.
Every villa in The Sanctuary includes preparatory and show kitchens, staff rooms, a private spa area with a dedicated steam room and massage area, a rooftop terrace, a serene Japanese Zen Garden, an internal elevator, and a garage with 2-3 parking spaces. Additionally, each unit offers a back garden featuring a pool and sunken seating area for residents to enjoy.
The latest addition to The Sanctuary is The Lakeshore, which was launched in the third quarter of 2023. This cluster offers 4-5 bedroom villas with elevators and high-end finishes. The kitchens feature built-in appliances from Miele. Each villa comes with its own swimming pool, private garden, and patio.
The Sanctuary will provide an array of exceptional amenities, including a stunning central lagoon with a beach area, a bar, and a relaxation zone with board games. Residents will also have access to a children’s playground, beautifully landscaped gardens, community parks, picnic areas, meandering pathways, courtyards, and even a dedicated dog park.
