This carefully maintained villa is set amongst a large villa compound in the hills of Sariyer. Overlooking the Bosphorus, the views are to die for, with full panoramic views from a few hundred metres. Surrounded by mature groves and protected forests, this compound provides a peaceful, sedentary lifestyle, yet gives residents access to the primary business district in under 15 minutes.
Floor to ceiling windows merge the incredible view with the living space, and the large 1,500 sqm gardens, provides plenty of space for entertaining your guests. The secure compound ensures kids can play in the compound without the worry of their parents.
Full security surrounds this elite compound, and the villa comes with parking for four cars. The compound comes with full facilities, including indoor and outdoor pools, Tennis courts, gym and so on.
The region, known as Büyükdere, is just 5 minutes from the Taksim metro line, and 15 minutes from the primary business district in Levent. Residents can walk to the Bosphorus front, with its elite cafes and restaurants. The region is already filled with many private schools, with the most famous being the British international school.
This product is available as full payment in cash only, with short term payment plans by negotiation only.
The local region is a protected forest zone - you will literally be inside a valley surrounded by forests. Formerly an industrial region, the empty plot has been developed into an area of outstanding natural beauty. With no further development permitted, your forest view will never be spoiled.
Althought technically in Sariyer, this is an undeveloped forest region of Istanbul. This is a neighbourhood of a selected few complexes of this type, and hence feels a million miles away from Istanbul - yet you are with 10 minutes of major landmarks like the Bosphorus, top class schools and private hospitals, the huge Istinye park mall, and Turkey's biggest football team (Galatasaray).
With no further development allowed in the region, complexes have tried to cater for every single possibility - an on site mall, markets, dozens of restaurants and cafes, offices, and endless facilities.
Sariyer, in general, is home to the most expensive real estate in Istanbul. It is truly home to the upper classes of Istanbul.
This is truly an elite complex targeting the middle and upper class society of Istanbul.
Sariyer is home to the most expensive real estate not just in Istanbul, but probably in the world. With Bosphorus front villas changing hands for over 80 million dollars, Sariyer is up there with Champs-Elysees, Paris and Hampstead, London. With the most of Sariyer falling into a protected zone of Forests and the Bosphorus protection zone, supply of genuinely high grade homes is limited. Bosphorus front villas rarely change hands, and construction is limited in general to two storeys.
Very rarely, in areas like Maslak, and Seyrantepe, tall skyscrapers have been allowed - yet these will be restricted to a very small number. Hence upon completion, high quality complexes will be in short supply, yet demand remains very high.
This has pushed prices in the region, and this means rental yield is below the Istanbul average. A purchase in this region from an investment aspect will be based on the capital appreciation, and not the yield. Expect excellent capital appreciation in the double digits each year, and expect to be able to sell your home here a lot sooner than other regions of Istanbul.
