Why buy property in Uskudar for sale?
A big lure for Uskudar property buyers is its Bosphorus location sitting opposite Eminonu so working and retired locals often take advantage of regular ferry transport routes to reach the European side. Speak to any local, and they will tell you the Bosphorus views are the best in Istanbul, and this is reflected in the laid-back atmosphere of waterfront cafes and restaurants. Social life revolves around the centre, home to the ferry port and Salacak, the long promenade that fills up during weekends as locals emerge to make the most of the views and idyllic weather.
The other international famous area, Beylerbeyi earned its reputation for fantastic fish restaurants and an Ottoman palace of the same name. Places like Cengelkoy also hosts Ottoman yali houses that form Turkey’s most expensive real estate market. Don’t think life revolves around the Bosphorus waterfront though because locals adore the beautiful green delights of Fethi Pasa Korusu Park.
