Villa For Sale in Buyukada, Istanbul Turkey
Own A Villa On An Island Just Minutes From Istanbul
Asking Price: $550,000 USD (Negotiable)
In as little as thirty minutes by fast catamaran or ferry from the commercial centers of Istanbul, Turkey
you can step ashore into a completely different lifestyle on the island of Buyukada.
Buyukada, Turkish for "Big Island" is the largest of a chain of islands in the Sea of Marmara known as the "Princes Islands". From the moment you are aboard the boat headed for the island and you see Istanbul receding behind you a sense of calmness grows as you leave the fast pace and stress behind.
Arriving on Buyukada not far from the pier you pass through a village of tea gardens, restaurants, pastry shops, and grocers on your way home. Because no cars are allowed on the island you can get to your villa by horse carriage, bicycle, or walking along the colorful streets planted with pink and white oleander and past yards planted with roses, palm trees, bougainvillea, and pine trees. While heading home the sounds of horse hooves, sea birds, and swallows follow you. Already you notice how the slower pace of island life with its many sights and sounds of nature brings a real feeling of peace now that you are away from the traffic and noise of the city.
Once home you can relax out on the living room balcony of the third floor in the sea breeze and revel in the 180 degree vista of the marine traffic on the Sea of Marmara, the coastline of Istanbul, and stunning sunsets over the neighboring islands. The kitchen and bedroom balconies offer views of the sea and the protected pine forests that cover most of the island.
The 400 m2 property, enclosed by a wrought iron topped wall, provides plenty of space for entertaining and enjoying the barbecue and pool. Also quiet times close to nature can be spent there with the fruit trees, vegetable, and flower gardens.
You can live on the island year round since the house has excellent natural gas heating.
The surrounding neighborhood is comprised of business owners from the mainlands European and Asian sides of Istanbul, some of whom grew up on the island while the others have lived there for years.
Important to interested foreign buyers is the Turkish Government's reciprocal position regarding foreign land ownership; that any country allowing Turkish citizens to own private property in return that countries citizens may own private property in Turkey,
