Property Location and Details
This rather quirky and full of character Ottoman traditional property for sale in Eminonu is found a mere 180m from the shores of the Bosphorus, a short 10 minutes' walk to Galata Bridge, and just 2 minutes to the stunning Gulhane Park.
A very busy and highly sought after area of the city that offers an array of bars, cafes and restaurants, a wide selection of shops and supermarkets all close by, along with the Grand Bazaar, Spice Market and the weekly street markets all found within a few minutes' walk.
Just 2 minutes away, on foot, you reach the city's tram system, Train station and Metro stop, along with the Eminonu ferry terminal in just 10 minutes, all offering links to most Istanbul areas and the airports.
The property is found on a rather quiet and mostly pedestrianised narrow street with a multi-storey car park just around the corner and is built against the ancient Ottoman/Roman City wall which is actually exposed on the interior of the property.
Set in a four-storey townhouse style building with the ground floor being a separately owned property, with a full front wooden facade and accessed directly from the street via a partially glazed iron door that opens to a private stairway leading up to the first floor of the featured property.
On entry, the lower level of the home consists of an open-plan living area, laid throughout with solid wood flooring, with all areas clearly defined via open doorways, featuring a fairly modern fitted kitchen with the Ottoman city wall exposed at the far end, fitted with a range of white and glazed wooden units topped with solid wood work surfaces and satin painted splash backs.
Traditional tongue and groove ceilings are fitted with ceiling fans throughout the living areas, and lots of natural light flows through several brown UPVC double glazed window and a partially glazed patio door that opens to a small balcony overlooking the quiet street.
A wooden winding staircase then leads up the second floor of the building where you find 2 large double bedrooms, again with the tongue and groove ceilings, both with traditional wooden windows overlooking the street, hardwood floors, with one offering the privacy of an en-suite shower room, and one fitted with a floor to ceiling wooden library bookshelf.
Heading further up to the third floor, you find a second open-plan living area with a more traditional kitchen and a small bathroom, again with traditional wooden windows with a view down over the street and a door opening to a large street view balcony.
The third-floor living area also offers an open wooden staircase leading up a mezzanine floor bedroom in the apex of the roof, with windows that offer a full panoramic view of Gulhane Park and a great view of the Bosphorus over the local rooftops.
This quirky Istanbul city centre property is offered to the Istanbul real estate market directly from the owner, partly furnished, with the price to include a full gas central heating system, and should you be interested in the whole building, we understand that the owner of the ground floor is also considering selling.
Overall all a great centrally located traditional Istanbul property that is in need of some work hence the excellent asking price, a great family home, or an ideal investment in Istanbul with the potential to renovate as a tourist's accommodation with perhaps 3 or 4 separate apartments that would provide you with a fantastic year-round rental income and would also qualify for Turkish Citizenship.
