Renovated secluded stone cottage for sale in Kayakoy, Fethiye. An excellent investment choice attracting honeymooners looking for an idyllic retreat.
We are very pleased to offer this stunning little 1 bedroom real estate property for sale in Fethiye, located in the ancient village of Kayakoy in southwestern Turkey.
Kayakoy is home to the abandoned Greek village that has remained derelict since the Greeks were forced to leave Turkey for political reasons in the early 1920's after living harmoniously alongside the Turks for many years.
Today the ruins of the homes, churches, school and shops are a much-visited museum site where people climb the old cobbled streets to reach the old church that sits perched on top of the hill.
The village has several traditional restaurants serving Gozleme (savoury or sweet stuffed pancakes) and several hotels with swimming pool and restaurants, all open to the public to pop in for a cool drink after the hike up the hill and a cool off in the pool.
The centre of the village houses the local mosque, a fresh bakery for your daily bread, a couple of local shops, and a busy Cay Bahcse (Tea Garden) where the locals gather for a glass of cay or a Turk Kahvesi (strong and Turkish coffee served in tiny cups, similar to an espresso, but much sweeter), whilst playing Backgammon or the Turkish Tile game of Okay.
This lovely stone cottage is located at the far end of the village in the Kinali area, along the road that leads to the local Gemiler beach and the ancient Af Kule monastery.
A stunning peaceful area surrounded by pine forests clad the local mountains, and lush green field, the only noises to wake you are the sounds of the birds morning chorus, the crowing of the local cockerels or the bleating of the sheep and the goats.
The cottage enjoys total privacy, hidden behind a high stone wall, with stunning mature gardens having a stunning display of pink flowering Oleander, and a pretty rock garden with an array of flowering plants and shrubs.
The outdoor patio areas are set on three split levels, the higher hosting a raised sun lounging area and lovely inviting plunge pool to cool off in the heat of the summer months, and steps leading down to the middle level with a lovely seating area for shaded dining or maybe a quite summer evening relaxing in the garden gazing up at the stars in the clear night skies. On the lowest level, you find a log built pergola with a traditional Turkish fireplace/barbecue, having built-in concrete benches on either side with comfy cushions to relax on a cooler evening with the fire burning and the food cooking for a touch of alfresco dining.
The middle terrace is where you find the entrance to the cottage, an original solid wood door opening into a reception hallway leading off to the kitchen with its traditional fireplace, wooden units, and granite work surfaces. Off the kitchen is the bathroom, a fully tiled wet room style shower room with a glass shower screen and quality modern fittings.
Double wooden doors in the kitchen lead you into the combined lounge and bedroom with a stunning period corner fireplace, beautiful beamed ceilings, and little double glazed wooden windows.
The property is on the market traditionally furnished to a very good standard, all inclusive of white goods and air conditioning in the bedroom/lounge area.
All-in-all and great investment choice with very high rental potential, attracting honeymooners, retirees, and couples of all ages looking for an idyllic private getaway in the sun.
