Forbes found out where Durov lives and how much he pays for rent: what the billionaire's elite neighborhood looks like
One of the most reputable and well-known economic publications Forbes has found out where former Russian citizen, billionaire and Telegram founder Pavel Durov lives. According to insiders, he recently moved into a house that he rents for a million dollars a year.
Durov's dwelling is allegedly located in the Jumeirah Islands and may surprise those who follow the billionaire's activities. Forbes has learned that the nearly $83,300-a-month home contains only 5 bedrooms.
It may seem that Durov has chosen a huge estate to live in for such an impressive sum, although in fact the houses on Jumeirah are mostly two-story mansions, unremarkable from afar.
Built in the early 2000s by state-owned developer Nakheel Properties, the neighborhood where the founder of VK and Telegram settled is 46 separate circular "clusters", each containing 16 villas.
These individual offshoots are connected to each other, and the houses in such a circle of 16 plots usually look the same and are very close together. Bird's eye view photos and videos show that each villa has a small swimming pool and landscaping in the courtyard.
The complex is considered very elite and expensive. The entrance there is strictly guarded, which excludes trespassing. Tenants here do not pay for a personalized approach, but for practicality, safety and picturesque scenery.
The islands have everything you need for a comfortable life within the complex - gym, restaurants, beauty salons, etc.
