About Amanda Harkin

My name is Amanda, Im married to Billy, we have 3 children, George, James and Jenna, and live between Dubai and Nice France with our dog Darcie. Im welsh originally and Billy is Irish. We have lived in Dubai for over 20 years so know the area really well, and our children were born and raised here. Barari is the best home we've ever had. We love being so lose to the excitement of the city and shops but its a little piece of paradise in the Barari grounds, and we are very proud of the house itself which represents our worldly travels.

Amanda Harkin purchased this villa in 2014

Why Amanda Harkin chose Dubai

After 20 years in Dubai, we have lived in most of the areas popular to expatriates but Barari was an aspiration for many years for us. Its a 16000 sqft house so its massive and spacious but still feels homely. We have surrounded ourselves with all the things that we do in our lives, entertaining areas, a cinema, gym, a bar!! lots of luxurious comfort and love of the outdoors, the gardens are spectacular. We have a staff which keep the house ticking along, and its a pleasure to spend every day here.

What makes this villa unique

Barari is exclusive and very special. One of the most expensive real estate in Dubai and much sought after. We are surrounded by greenery and wildlife that does not exist in any other community in Dubai. You will often see Deer whilst walking in the gardens or picnicking by the lake and sat in the garden you will hear the birds sing!! Its immensely private but also easily accessible to all that Dubai has to offer, with the worlds largest theme park IMG World literally minutes from the door. In my home there is a vast choice of where to hang out. Lounges, terraces, bar by the pool, sports lounge and cosy kitchen. The pool, cinema and activity room will keep the kids occupied, the office and various IMacs will keep you in touch and a staff that will look after you.
