Property description

Firuz Place is one of Istanbul Place Apartments' sensitive restoration projects. It's on the first and second floors - two spiral flights of original wooden stairs - of a traditional Turkish house. The narrow street is a mix of residential buildings, antique shops and bric-a-brac emporiums, resulting in a neighbourhood that feels worldly yet largely undiscovered.

The apartment is 8 minutes walk from Tophane tram stop, from which Sultanahmet can be reached in a further 10 minutes. Istanbul Modern contemporary art museum, on the waterfront, is just beyond Tophane tram stop. In the other direction quiet streets of antique shops are waiting to be explored and Orhan Pamuk's Museum Of Innocence is just across the road. Famous Istiklal Avenue is 10 minutes walk up the - steep - hill.

The open plan living area occupies the entire top floor, leading onto a private balcony with dining area and views over the authentic street below. The kitchen is contemporary and well-equipped, with high-end appliances including dish-washer. There's a dining table alongside the kitchen and a velvet sofa seating area next to this. At the other end of the open plan floor is another seating area with two comfortable arm chairs facing the balcony.

The two bedrooms - one double, one twin - are on the floor below, via a sweet brick spiral staircase. The bedrooms are positioned either end of a connecting hallway, curtained for privacy. The beds have high quality crisp white linens and the twin beds can be pushed together if required. The chic shower room is between them.

This apartment is 80 m2 in total, homely and full of character. Some of the brickwork on the walls is exposed and the original floorboards are stained dark, giving a warm and friendly atmosphere. The bedrooms comfortably accommodate four people and a fifth/child on a fold-out bed in the living room is possible.

Guest Access:
Guests will have the complete privacy of the entire apartment and access at any time to its private balcony.

The Neighbourhood:
Çukurcuma is developing area in Beyoglu, yet still very authentic. There are boutique cafes rubbing shoulders with neighbourhood mosques, all amongst the broad selection of antique shops for which the area is renowned.

Getting Around:
Metro, bus, tram and ferry stops are all only a few minutes’ walk away. You can be in Sultanahmet (for the big sights of Ayasofya, Topkapı, Blue Mosque etc.) in about 20 minutes by public transport or 30 minutes on foot. In the other direction, by Metro, you can be in Şişli (for Istanbul’s biggest shopping mall) in 30 minutes or Levent (for Istanbul’s business district) in 35 minutes.

There is a taxi rank just around the corner and some secure car parks too.

Interaction with Guests:
This is a small Turkish-British family project. Julia and Tarkan used to live in Istanbul then Singapore and are now balancing life between England and Istanbul. If we're in Istanbul during your stay we'd love to meet you.

Your questions and booking will be handled by us wherever we are. When you arrive in Istanbul Tarkan’s wonderful family and/or our friendly team will welcome you to your apartment, give you the keys and explain about practicalities and the neighbourhoods.

We’ll all help you as much as you need and we're always only a phone call or email away.
