Kayakoy is a very historical village located in the Fethiye area of south-west Turkey, sitting approximately 8km from the centre of the busy harbour town. Many people refer to the village as the ghost town, as the village was once home to 100s of Greeks that quite happily lived right next door to the Turks until around 1922 when they were forced to leave the area. Their homes still stand today nestled in the hillsides and the site has now become a museum and is visited by 100's of people every day.

Turkey Homes are pleased to offer this traditional two storey villa for sale in Fethiye, located in the stunning ancient village of Kayakoy on the outskirts of the busy harbour town in southwestern Turkey.
Kayakoy is a stunning, almost rural village where homes are surrounded by stunning scenery of lush green landscapes and pine clad mountains, a historical village where abandoned Greek stone houses overlook the picturesque valley and farmland.
Kayakoy's ancient homes have stood empty since the Greeks left in 1922, completely untouched decaying homes which are now a busy museum visited by hundreds every day throughout the year. Family homes, churches, a school, and shops all stand and share the area's wonderful history with the museum's visitors.
Being a small village there are only handful of local shops who cater for everyday necessities, and the village centre hosts a busy tea garden, one of three village mosques, a bakery for your daily fresh bread and pastries, and dotted around the village you have small boutique hotels and some wonderful restaurants all with stunning setting and most area overlooked from the ancient homes.
Property in Kayakoy is not often found at bargain prices, as homes in the area offer excellent rental potential being highly sought after by Turkish tourists and many overseas tourists too who seek privacy and solitude for a peaceful summer break.
Located approximately 1km from the village centre, set back slightly from the main village road and set in a huge rural plot of 5621m2 with ample space for livestock and your own organic garden, or perhaps a private pool, though for this planning permission should be applied for.
The property in its current state offers a huge living space of 137m2, though it is need of total renovation, and if you take a look around the village you will see that many homes have already been purchased and undergone massive improvements providing stunning luxury homes, many of which are holiday rental properties that earn very healthy rental incomes, some traditional stone houses and some older concrete built homes like the one we are featuring.
Though in need of major works, this villa currently hosts 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a lounge and separate kitchen on the ground floor and another kitchen on the first floor, and in the past has been used as two separate apartments with separate entrances.
An ideal property for anyone looking for a renovation project to keep for year round home in peaceful Kayakoy, or for anyone looking to sell on at a huge profit or to keep as a holiday investment rental property with high rental yields.
If this is what you are looking for we at Turkey Home can put you in touch with reputable builders and craftsmen who can help in the restoration, or maybe you are builder looking to complete the renovation to your own standards and we can also offer you assistance with reputable suppliers of building supplies.
