This incredible Bosphorus front villa, or "Yali" as it is known in Turkish, is elegant, historic, with views that are one of a kind. Sea front Yali villas are world famous, and are generational in nature - due to the limited nature of construction along the Bosphorus, these types of villas seldomly become available.
This Yali has been tenderly cared for, offering 6 bedrooms spanning 3 storeys. This is a villa straight out of a Turkish TV drama. Entrance to the Yali is directly from the coastal road, meaning your Bosphorus views are eternally protected. Upon entry to the delightful home, one is greeted by a grand marble staircase and antique chandeliers.
The property has been kept to historic standards internally as well as external. Decor is kept sympathetique of the post Republic era architecture. The grond level is dominated by a large living room, and traditional Turkish kitchen.
The first floor is where the bedrooms start, all facing the Bosphorus, meaning one is awoken by the gentle waves of the Bosphorus. Watch boats and ships pass by as they sail their way through the straight.
The view to the rear is also delightful, dominated by a forest, with the odd historic Yali gently disturbing the landscape.
This is a one of a kind Villa, an opportunity to own a piece of Turkish history.
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.
