The Turkey Homes team are delighted to offer this detached prestigious villa in Istanbul for sale, beautifully located in the countryside village of Zekeriyakoy in the esteemed Sariyer district of European Istanbul.
Sariyer takes in several distinguished 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 surrounded by lush green forest areas offering clean fresh air away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, with the forests offering beautiful nature walks, shaded summertime picnics and more, an area popular as a weekend escape from the city.
Generally, the elite of Istanbul that chooses these areas for permanent living love the nature that surrounds their homes, and the excellent connections to the city being just a few kilometres from the central and popular tourist area of Taksim Square and also having easy access to the stunning Black Sea beaches.
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 great links to the city via the business centre of Maslak it attracts highly paid working families for very little commuting to the office.
Location and Property Details
This new traditional 4 bedroom villa for sale in Zekeriyakoy is found a mere 10-minute drive from Kumkoy on the Black Sea coastline and approximately 15-minutes to the shores of the Bosphorus, whilst being just 30-minutes from both the city centre and the new city airport.
Around 5-minutes north you can access the TEM intersection which directly connects with the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge that leads across the Bosphorus to Asian Istanbul or you take a 15-minute drive south to reach the business centre of Maslak and the E-5 highway, thus access to all areas of the city is excellent.
The immediate local area is a small and rather up-market residential area that sits extremely to the edge of the Belgrad Forest and is surrounded by greenery for a healthier way of life, although within a few minutes' walk you can find several shops, supermarkets, restaurants, parks, banks and schools for all ages, whilst a short drive finds a number of universities, hospitals and shopping malls.
