Arabian Ranches Area Guide

About Arabian Ranches

Arabian Ranches is a fantastic option for people looking to settle down in a peaceful villa neighbourhood. It is one of Dubai's most established communities and has a lovely suburban community feel. This gated community is filled with nature and beautifully landscaped, making it ideal for families. Emaar, the top real estate developer in Dubai, developed the model that divided the construction into two phases: Arabian Ranches and Arabian Ranches 2. The Ranches, which has a variety of villas and townhouses with various configurations and price points, is perfect for families and couples. Investors and those looking for a rental home have many options close to all lifestyle amenities. Arabian Ranches is, without a doubt, one of Dubai's best villa communities.

The villas and townhouses at Arabian Ranches are available in various layouts and styles. Bedrooms range from 2- to 7-bedroom configurations and come in multiple types; we're sure you'll find the ideal home for you and your family! Arabian Ranches is also a thriving community with a school, various restaurants and cafes, a golf club, and even an equestrian centre! This is truly the perfect place for families looking to settle down!

The area is tucked away in tranquil, lush greenery and feels worlds away from the rest of Dubai. The various enclaves have swimming pools, tennis courts, and BBQ areas, and they are all wholly landscaped. Being one of the few pet-friendly neighbourhoods in Dubai with lush greenery, open spaces, and roomy homes makes it quite convenient for pet owners to find a home here. These various aspects combine to make a living in the Ranches a suburban fantasy.
