Want To Live Under The Sea?

Dubai is no stranger to extravagance and opulence, especially when it comes to real estate projects and architecture.

The Heart of Europe, a chain of islands right off Dubai's coast that are meant to replicate and mirror a smaller-scale version of the European nations, are the epitome of Middle Eastern coastal wealth.

Perhaps that's why real estate development company the Kleindienst Group has decided to build 131 Floating Seahorse Homes on the chain of islands, each being put on the market for a pretty $2.7M.

The three-story homes will consist of a 270-square-foot underwater level with a master bedroom and bathroom, each accompanied by its own private coral garden outside.

The rest of the structure features a floating bed, living room and observation deck.

But these luxurious, multi-million dollar homes actually have a charitable motivation behind them.

The homes will give the seahorse population in the area (which is vastly endangered) space and resources to continue repopulating.

As The Kleindienst Group said in a statement:

"We will create an artificial coral reef beneath the luxury retreats which will be a protected area in which seahorses can safely live and breed."

The first phase of rollouts on the Seahorse Homes is expected to be completed by October 2016, continuing into 2017 and 2018 with more developments and expansions.

Part of these expansions will include "Signature Edition" homes, which will contain nearly 900 square feet of living space, which will hit the market for $12M.

The project might be quite a lavish way to save the seahorses, but we suppose any effort helps.

Besides, why wake up to trees and mountains when you can wake up to an underwater coral garden?
