About the Property

Penthouse with 3 Bedrooms (Sleeps 5)

This spacious unit is located in a vibrant Istanbul neighborhood populated by professionals, retired people, children, teenagers, artists and homemakers. Being on the 10th floor, with double-pane windows, it is quiet.

It is very accessible by public transport and cabs: 30 km from Istanbul Ataturk airport, 13 km from Old Town, 6.4 km from Taksim Square and 3 km from the Bosphorus shores. Very picturesque areas nearby like Bebek & Arnavutkoy have an abundance of exquisite fresh seafood restaurants, and also provide shopping, fishing and people-watching opportunities, only a few minutes (3 km) by cab, within downhill walking distance on steep, narrow, cobblestoned streets .

For groups of more than 5, we also have accommodations in the adjacent condominium at the same rates. We can mail pictures if needed.

The Artists' Park around the corner serves coffee, tea and Sunday brunch. The bakery across the street is open at 7 am with take-out pastries fresh from the oven, for a relaxed breakfast at home.

The building is secure, accessible only to residents. Metered taxicabs are right around the entrance and take people expertly along ancient and modern streets of Istanbul anywhere in the city with reasonable fares. Award winning shopping centers, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, barbers, banks, bookstores and newspaper stands, are within a short walking distance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My name is Oya. I am a small business owner and my husband is a retired physics professor. We live on Oregon, USA, have 3 grandchildren. I was born, raised and spent a good part of my life in Istanbul, moved to the USA in 1982, but go back frequently. A few years ago, I inherited the condo from my parents and undertook a complete renovation project. The unit is used by my family and friends during visits to Istanbul. When vacant, I rent it on a short-term basis. I am a jewelry designer and show my work, including jewelry that are created by talented artisans in Turkey, several times a year. If you enjoy but did not get a chance to buy Turkish pieces and would like to, please check my website and Facebook: Via Parigi Personal Jewelers.

Why the Owner Chose Beşiktaş/Istanbul, Turkey:
I was lucky to inherit this condo in one of the most desirable residential locations in Istanbul.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I enjoy the proximity to the Bosphorus and public transport, the place being full of light and open to a 180 degree view of the area including the Asian shores. The grocer, barber, bank, restaurants, baker, newsstand, drycleaner, taxicabs are all within easy walking distance and they deliver right to the door. In the morning, while the tea is brewing, I like to go across the street to the bakery for warm boereks and pastries right out of the oven. I also appreciate the security of the building, the neighbors and the two supers who are ready to help at a moment's notice.
