Human beings are like virtually every other species on Earth, in that they require three basic things in order to survive: air, water and food; but unlike many other species, we also require clothing and shelter in order to keep ourselves warm and to remove ourselves from the dangers of the outdoors. The first main form of shelter we became accustomed to came thousands of years ago when our ancestors lived inside of caves to get away from the elements and possible predators, and as time passed, so did our capacity to learn things, which is how we managed to create man-made shelters out of sticks, leaves and animal skin. Eventually, we learned to make shelters which were much larger and required the use of different and more durable materials, which is when shelters began to be known as houses.
Now in 2016, houses come in all shapes and sizes, from a trailer-home, all the way up to a castle or mansion. It should come as no surprise that individuals who possess a lot of wealth often times own very large and expensive properties and homes; and depending on the place, there are entire communities that are made up of solely luxurious living spaces, and the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is one of these places. Dubai is home to an incredible amount of high-end real-estates known as villas, and these massive properties are surrounded by some of the most breathtaking scenery in the entire world, which is why these villas are some of the most expensive houses around. Here is a list of the 15 most expensive villas in Dubai.

In total, this property covers approximately 140,000-square-feet of space, and it will contain two separate floors which will apparently be filled to the brim with luxury. Each floor will come with seven bedrooms, as well as several indoor and outdoor areas which are designated for rest and relaxation; areas such as two private studies, a huge library, two spa areas, and even two home theaters. As if the nearby water provided by the Persian Gulf was not enough, the villa also possesses an 8,611-square-foot pool which is located in the middle of an outdoor space which by itself, measures over 16,000-square-feet.
