Sea front traditional apartment for sale in Istanbul. Metres from the sea in Tarabya with full views over the marina. Great investment choice.
Here at Turkey Homes, we have great pleasure in offering this traditional Yali apartment in Istanbul for sale, found in the district of Sariyer, right on the shores of the Bosphorus in the sought after neighbourhood of Tarabya.
The Sariyer district is located to the north of the city centre, a huge and very wealthy district of Istanbul divided into several neighbourhoods along the shoreline of the Bosphorus right up to the point where the water of the Bosphorus meets the Black Sea where you find some of Istanbul's fabulous beaches.
For many years, going back as far as the Byzantine era, Tarabya has been a weekend retreat from the heat of the city centre as the area enjoys a lovely cooling breeze, and in years gone by some foreign diplomats built summer mansions and summer embassies to the north and south of Tarabya's small cove, which today is just as popular for waterside dining as was all those years ago.
Real estate prices in Tarabya are premium, especially when found at the waterfront, very often traditional homes that offer wonderful views over the coastline to Anatolian Istanbul, some lucky enough to have views over the marina and the prominent Grand Tarabya Hotel which is a famous landmark for the cove.
Location in Tarabya
This traditional sea-front apartment for sale in Tarabya has a superb location, set in the cove and just metres from the sea, with the marina right on the doorstep with just the coast road and promenade between you and the marina.
Amenities offer everything needed for a life in Tarabya, waterfront restaurants and cafes, ample shops and supermarkets, banks, schools and much more all found within an easy walking distance, along with hospitals and universities a very short drive away.
The apartment is situated on the top floor of a traditional 5-storey block, with the ground floor being home to a popular fish and seafood restaurant, accessed via communal entrance doors located next to the restaurants with keyholder entrance only, or via an intercom system linked to each apartment, with the doors opening to a lobby area that offers stairs or a lift to the upper floors homes.
On reaching the top floor, a door into the apartment opens directly into the living area with polished parquet flooring, a very spacious open-plan and split level living area with an L-shaped layout with the kitchen almost ticked away out of sight from the lounge and dining areas, decked in a range of white units with quality granite units and tiled splash backs.
The living area offers oodles of storage space with lots of built-in floor to ceiling white storage units, with white wooden balustrade railings separating the two levels, the lounge in the upper level and the dining area on the lower level which offers two glazed wooden doors that open out to a huge rooftop terrace surrounded by white wrought iron railings on two sides and screened by latticework on the other side for privacy from the neighbouring terrace.
The terrace is partially shaded via a wide wooden canopy, offering light tiled floors and ample space for lounging, dining and sunbathing, but best of all are the views, full views over the marina and the Grand Tarabya Hotels, right across the sea to the Asian side of the city, with the vista also taking in the local greenery of the Tarabya area, truly breathtaking.
The apartment offers 3 bedrooms to the rear, reached via a rather ornate partially glazed door that opens to a hallway with doors to the bedrooms, a 2 bedroom area with large double rooms, with lovely little sash style shuttered windows with great views of the rear green Tarabya area. The third bedroom is a smaller good sized single room with fitted floor to ceiling wardrobes, with a window again overlooking the local area to the rear, all sharing a large fully tiled family bathroom also found off the hallway.
The owners offer the property to the Istanbul real estate market unfurnished and fully centrally heated with latticework radiator covers.

Tarabya is a neighbourhood of the Sariyer district of Istanbul, sitting on the Bosphorus shores in the European side of the city, renowned for its fabulous seafood restaurants, bistros and lively nightlife, and a very desirable area for the wealthy citizens of Istanbul.
Back in the Ottoman period Tarabya was where the foreign embassies had their summer houses. The name - Tarabya - comes from the Greek word 'Theràpia' which gives a clue to the area's history of a sanctuary for the sick, now a classy neighbourhood for many affluent people of Istanbul.
