Master planned Vardon is a cluster of villas, townhouses and residential plots in Dubai’s most anticipated off-plan project, AKOYA Oxygen. Simply called AKOYA, it is a green community away from the city noise and rush. The project is developed by renowned DAMAC Properties, hence, a range of facilities are provided to promote a sustainable and elite lifestyle. It is built close to Jebel Ali Road where you can find Dubai Heritage Vision and Tiger Woods Development. Further, the award-winning golf course, Trump International Golf Club is in proximity.
Vardon Cluster, like other sub-communities and villa enclaves, has access to community gardens and lakes. The plan includes luxurious family homes amidst rich green setting. Since it is a modern residential project, one can expect contemporary structures with high-quality finishes. With the growing value for the location and facilities provided by the developer, properties in this neighbourhood will be a good catch.
