Floating homes are nothing new, but ‘The Floating Seahorse’ in Dubai is most certainly a living space that most can only dream about. Why? It’s located in The World artificial archipelago and essentially a three-level cubed living space that spans 4,004-square-feet including two bedrooms that are completely submerged underwater.
Guests walk into the first level, which boasts a patio, terrace, living room, kitchen and bathroom. Step below to enter the lounge, consisting of an open tanning deck, shaded metting area, bar, skylight and most importantly, a Jacuzzi. Best of all, nearly all appliances in this home are connected to the internet, allowing you to automate many functions such as closing the curtains or turning down the lights. One caveat: it’ll set you back at least $4.7-million USD with some of the more extravagant villas commanding upwards of $20-million.
