This spacious family home and garden have been much loved by the family who developed the house, to very high standards, 7 years ago. The whole property is in immaculate condition and provides a perfect family hub, with much scope for entertaining due to the many reception areas, both inside the house and in the gorgeous garden. There are 3 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in its current configuration.
The gated community at Ariköy grew from Istanbul Technical University: neighbours are well-educated and friendly. The site includes 2 swimming pools (1 open-air, 1 enclosed), community sports hall, several tennis courts, small park areas, school and a selection of shops with a cafe at the site entrance. Within 15 minutes walk from the house is the sandy Kilyos beach, famous for its beach clubs and kite-surfing in summer.
The Ariköy site provides regular time-tabled mini-buses which collect passengers from outside this house and drive to directly connect with the Istanbul Metro system at Haciosman. There is also a public transport bus stop at the site entrance which connects with Sariyer and beyond. On-street parking space is plentiful directly outside the house.
Entrance to the house is through a porch with storage and into the ground floor hall area with a huge balcony/terrace and large garden ahead. In every direction the entire floor feels very open plan and full of light. It includes a main living room with atmospheric working fireplace and very large sofa/TV area (to seat 7+ very comfortably), a second reception/coffee table area with another sofa, a stylish small bathroom and a large, very well-equipped, family kitchen with breakfast table area. Just outside the front kitchen window is another eating/relaxing area with sun blind. In winter time the large dining table from the terrace can be brought in to make an indoor dining area with garden views.
The contemporary design staircase leads up to an airy landing and the large and airy first floor master bedroom, including generous wardrobe space. Across the landing is a huge and stylish master bathroom with dressing table area.
One more flight of stairs leads up to a second large bedroom with its own chic bathroom and additional study/studio space.
The naturally well-lit basement provides very flexible living space, currently used as a guest double-bedroom area with private shower-room to one side and utility, gym and extensive storage to the other.
The garden is peaceful and delightful, with enormous lawn, vegetable patch and several mature trees with seating/relaxing areas. The balcony/terrace provides space for a large group to dine very comfortably outside.
The entire house is airy and bright, with some views across the site to forested hills. It's a very comfortable, stylish and high quality family home that provides a unique balance of urban and country life.
