Turkey Homes are extremely pleased to present this prestigious sea view villa in Istanbul for sale, located in the upmarket neighbourhood of Tarabya in the Sariyer district to the north of the city centre and just 30m from the shores of the stunning Bosphorus.
The neighbourhood of Tarabya is located in the Sariyer district on the European side of the city, one of the wealthiest areas of Istanbul where many of the city's rich and affluent families live, due to them preferring to be surrounded by nature with the lush green forests of the area, rather than living in the busy city centre amongst all the smog of the congested traffic.

This fabulous and prestigiously located marina villa for sale in Tarabya is found in a slightly elevated position just above Tarabya Marina, enjoying a breathtaking view of the Bosphorus, local green hillsides and over the marina.
The villa is set on the northern side of the small bay, just 30m from the marina and close to the Grand Tarabya Hotel, whilst walking distance to numerous cafes, bars and waterside restaurants, various shops, supermarkets, schools including an English school, chemists, ATM's, and large green coastal park, whilst a short drive of around 8-9 minutes will reach the Acibadem Maslak Hospital, 10-minutes will reach the Istinye Park Shopping centre and the Istanbul Technic University, many others accessible with a slightly longer drive.
Various bus stops are also within walking distance of the villa, or you can reach the nearest Metro station via a 3-minutes drive, whilst a 15-minutes drive via Maslak will reach the TEM highway and the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge or 20-minutes to join the E-5 highway, thus, an area that offers great connections across the length and breadth of the city, with the new Istanbul airport accessible in a little over 40-minutes.

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.
