Rooftop Apartment w/ a stunning Halic View (Istanbul)

Combine a Spectacular View with Luxurious Contemporary Design in a Rooftop over the Golden Horn in Kasimpasa-Beyoglu

Description

An 85 sq meter/914 sq feet recently renovated and completely redesigned rooftop with an additional 50 sq meter/ Protected content feet full terrace is available as of August 15, Protected content . Only a Protected content to the Galatasaray Square in Beyoglu, and a 5 minute-bus ride from Sishane, the rooftop has been recently converted from a two-bedroom apartment into a spacious one bedroom with an open and fully equipped kitchen, well integrated into the living room and the dining area. In addition to the full view of the Golden Horn, stretching from the Galata Tower to the Suleymaniye Mosque, the rooftop is surrounded by the full terrace on three sides. One part of terrace has been integrated into the house functions as a laundry and storage room with an authoritative view on Istanbul's financial district in the making as well as the historical peninsula. Now a line of bad news for those who want to have their cake and eat it too: The apartment is located on the 7th floor of a building without an elevator. And yes, you have to climb up some stairs to reach this gem of an apartment and its stunning and panoramic view. I am a social scientist who lives between Istanbul and NYC. Next year, I'll be on a fellowship in NYC and hence looking for a suitable long-term (a minimum 6-month commitment is strongly preferred) tenant/tenants. Given that the rooftop is a one-bedroom, I am ideally looking for a couple or a single tenant.

Location

Kasimpasa is the evil twin of Cihangir for those who are familiar with the districts of Beyoglu. Historically Kasimpasa has been an important center of shipbuilding, fishing and sea transportation, and has so far escaped the wave of gentrification that was fully implemented in Cihangir, and painfully in progress in Tarlabasi/Tepebasi area. Located on the opposite side of the Galata Tower from Cihangir, Kasimpasa won't offer you French bakery shops or espresso bars. Neither will everybody you meet be an inspiring filmmaker, or an actor. Kasimpasa offers you instead an authentic Istanbul neighborhood with delicious local restaurants (particularly Black Sea region specialties), inexpensive cafes and one of the best (and inexpensive!) fish markets at the heart of it all. Not to forget, a full stunning view of the Golden Horn and the former imperial city/historical peninsula accompanies all the perks of living in an authentic neighborhood given the location of the rooftop apartment.

Transportation

Kasimpasa is very well connected to the rest of the city thanks to its central location. On foot, and walking up and down the Beyoglu hills, you could reach Istiklal street in Protected content . By car or taxi, you are at Taksim Square (without traffic) in less than 10 minutes. After a 5-minute walk from the apartment, you reach the Sishane-Sisli minibus line. The Sishane subway station is a 5 minute-ride, while the same line will take you to Sisli/Mecidiyekoy in 15 minutes. By public buses, you could reach Karakoy and Eminonu within half an hour, and by ferry (which leaves from Kasimpasa Iskelesi every hour until midnight), you could reach Uskudar (the Asian side) in 30 minutes.
