Turkey Homes are thoroughly delighted to present this stunning traditional villa in Alacati for sale, a small fishing village in the Izmir province on the western coastline of Turkey close the elite resort of Cesme.
Outside of Turkey the picturesque hamlet of Alacati is virtually unknown, a secret gem that attracts a wealthy crowd of Turkish tourists who prefer a traditional area away from the humdrum of international resorts such as Bodrum, Marmaris and Fethiye.
A very small town that offers narrow cobbled streets lined with stunning stone houses with wooden window shutters, street cafes and restaurants, all very unspoilt and sleepy, especially in the daytime when everyone heads for the sandy beaches, some nice and quiet for families and sun worshippers and some beach clubs that offer beach parties and concerts at sunset.
In the evening the little street cafes and restaurants are buzzing, though many people head for the sea front restaurants and bars by the harbour and yacht marina, with some browsing the antique shops and gift shops, all very low-key and relaxing with the village often seeing national celebrities visiting the area giving this small village a rather exclusive title, even though it remains full of charm and tradition.
This stunning authentic Greek home is over 100 years old, beautifully and sensitively restored in 2002, located in a very popular area of the village, with the popular Ilica beach and surf areas being around 2km away, though the immediate area offers lots in the way of amenities with shops, supermarket and restaurants etc all within a short walk, and you can find a hospital and schools etc within a few minutes drive.
The duplex stone built villa sits directly on a quaint cobbled street with its upper closed Yali style balcony hanging over the street, boasting its own large private plot of 516m2, all very private with most of the garden area being hidden away from the street.
The inner grounds offer large areas of lush velvet green lawns, shaded and full sun rustic stone and tiled terraces, overshadowed by an array of mature fig, lemon and olive trees and trailing grapevines, along with various shrubs and colourful floral displays.
A large rear terrace, shaded by a wooden balcony above, offers lots of shade for outdoor lounging and alfresco dining, and if required the gardens offer ample space for a swimming should you desire, though planning permission would need to approved by the local authorities.
