Authentic Ottoman period Villa for sale in Istanbul. Located in prestigious Buyukdere overlooking the Bosphorus. Excellent investment property in Istanbul.
Turkey Homes are delighted to offer this rare chance to buy a piece of great history with this authentic Ottoman period villa for sale in Istanbul, located very close to the shores of the Bosphorus Strait in the wealthy district of Sariyer.
Sariyer is located on the European side of Istanbul and takes in several prestigious neighbourhoods, some that sit on the shores of the Bosphorus, some to the north on the borders of the Black Sea and some slightly inland, which are surrounded by lush green forest areas offering clean, fresh air as opposed the pollution of the city centre.
Many of these areas are often chosen by very wealthy Turkish families for year-round living, those that love the nature that surrounds their homes, and the wonderful city links being just a few kilometres from the central and popular tourist area of Taksim Square, offering beautiful walks along the Bosphorus stopping off for a coffee by the water or stunning nature walks.
The area also offers a wealth of local amenities, having some of the best international schools in the city, distinguished shopping malls, hospitals and clinics, universities and much more, and with its excellent links to the city via the business centre of Maslak it attracts working highly paid families for very little commuting to the office.
Property Location and Details
This stunning historical villa for sale in Istanbul is a grade 2 listed building dating back to the Ottoman Empire, located in the elite Buyukdere neighbourhood, which sits just 7km north of the business area of Maslak.
Almost frontline to the Bosphorus with a view over the sea and natural park areas and backed by a dense green forest, with an array of local amenities including waterside cafes and restaurants, shops and supermarkets and excellent medical and educational establishments all within close proximity, along with very easy access to the city centre via nearby Maslak and excellent connections to the beautiful Black Sea beaches which sit slightly north of the Buyukdere area.
The villa has been sensitively renovated, conforming to all the protection laws set by the local municipality, offering many of its traditional features yet offering a modern style of living. Completely knocked down and rebuilt, the two side walls were extensively strengthened, with a new steel roof and fire detection system installed.
The villa is a long and narrow mid-terrace townhouse style property built over 3.5 floors, offering private parking at the front and entered via rather regal wooden doors with glazed windows to the side, opening into a wide reception hallway/lounge area with exposed brick walls on two sides, laid with traditional patterned tiled flooring, with 5m ceiling height, a typical feature of an ottoman home.
At the end of the hallway, you find a short double wooden staircase leading up to a mezzanine floor area, which offers a handy guest/family shower room, and a storage room, further leading to a separate fully fitted modern kitchen with the same traditional flooring, decked out in a stylish black and white theme with ample space for family dining, offering access via rear door to a large courtyard style garden/terrace area which hosts an artesian water well.
Heading up a winding wooden staircase from the mezzanine area, you reach the first floor, which offers a furnished landing area, offering slightly lower ceilings of 3m and access to a WC, with a large double bedroom with solid wood floors to the rear with sizeable wooden sash style windows overlooking the forest area.
The spacious lounge area is found at the front, with wooden floors, offering a large bay window seating area with gorgeous views over the Bosphorus, ample space for lounging, and a formal dining area.
Continuing up the wooden staircase to the top floor, you have another 2 bedrooms located in another hallway and again with 3m high ceilings, the first to the rear with further forest views, and one at the front, currently used as a music room and private office with more great Bosphorus and park views. The landing area then offers a second modern family shower room.
This wonderful specimen of Istanbul's history is offered to the real estate market unfurnished. However, it does come with air conditioning units in most rooms and a full gas central heating system.
