An art-filled mega mansion heads to auction in Dubai

An ultra-luxe Dubai mansion is heading to auction – and it’s got a gallery-standard art collection.

Designed by Viktor Udzenija, Villa 71 comes ready-furnished with artworks by the likes of Misha Kahn and Henri Mège. It’s located not far from Jumeirah Beach and spans 23,000 sq ft, including a 90-foot pool, a 10-car underground garage and six ensuite bedrooms. Udzenija, who was a protégé of Norman Foster, describes the glass-walled property as ‘an immersive and cosmopolitan sanctuary’.

What’s landing Villa 71 headlines, however, is its readymade collection of art, with pieces by Ayman Baalbaki, Pablo Reinoso and Abdul Qader Al Rais, amongst others, decorating the Dubai property.

Interior design and furnishings are just as impressive, with pieces by Rick Owens, Pierre Paulin, and Pierre Jeanneret included in the sale.

The house was previously listed for $125m and is now heading for auction in January 2024 via Concierge Auctions in partnership with Sotheby’s International Realty and Choueri Real Estate. Bids are expected to start at $50m.
