Designed over 100 years ago by famous architects A. N. Perpignani and M. G. Langas, who built numerous buildings as this area developed for residence by Europeans and Levantines. As well as the apartment lovingly restored by the present owner to its Ottoman/Art Deco condition. Also the outside of the building and the roof were completely restored in 2016.
It comprises 3 bedrooms, entrance hall, living room, bathroom and kitchen. With original wooden floors and doors and molded ceilings. The ceilings are over 3.5 meters high and being a corner apartment with lots of windows and sunshine, the apartment has a very light, airy and spacious feel to it.
Bedrooms: one large master bedroom, good-sized second bedroom, and a small bedroom with a balcony currently used as an office. The entrance hall which connects with the living/dining room features striking beveled glass panels with an Ottoman tulip motif created by a local artist. Besides the luminous Dining/Living area features an impressive brick wall as was the custom in such apartments. The Kitchen features include top of the range appliances, ample wooden cabinets, black granite surfaces, a marble floor and a breakfast bar and is enhanced by colorful Iznik tiles. Also the marble Bathroom with period-style chrome fittings and an Iznik-tiled niche has a Hamam feel to it. As well as two Balconies offer a view of the Golden Horn with the Fatih Conqueror Mosque on the one side and Istanbul’s high-rise business district on the other. In addition there are two secure Cellar rooms for storage. Also living space: 161 sqm.
The apartment represents a rare investment opportunity for who desires an exceptional quality of life at the heart of the city or wishes to rent it out. With its excellent location, also it could be an ideal holiday or retirement apartment.
