Everyone knows that Istanbul is full of exciting real estate opportunities, and while apartments generally dominate the housing market, if you know where to look there are a number of high quality villas for sale in Istanbul centre and outskirts. At Property Turkey, we select only the best villas for sale in Istanbul with spacious gardens, private swimming pools, and other luxury facilities for those looking to raise a family in Turkey. Prices are rising at an incredible rate in desirable Istanbul (15% on average in 2015) and are tipped to continue in the forthcoming 5 - 8 years. Rental returns are also high for Istanbul houses and depending on your location, villas in Istanbul can earn up to 7% each year in rental income.
How much does a villa in Istanbul cost?
Because villas in Istanbul are generally not built on estates like in Turkey’s resort areas, they are not homogenous and are unique in character. Villas in Istanbul are generally grand affairs with at least four bedrooms. Renovated older Ottoman style Istanbul villas in the city centre start at around Euro 1m for the most basic and range to several hundred million Euros for Bosporus front Yali mansion houses. It is possible to pick a reasonable house in Istanbul's outer suburbs from around Euro 300,000, however, for quality and facilities one should be prepared to part with no less than Euro 750,000 for a decent home. For those who want the best of both worlds - both city and country living - Princess Island offers beachside villas in Istanbul, generally at eye-watering prices.
Buyers of villas in Istanbul can expect the creme de la creme of the Turkish real estate market. From waterfront Yali mansions of the Bosphorus to luxury Istanbul villas with private pools, landscaped gardens and the latest in home decor and design, the portfolio always delivers. Our listings include villas for sale in Asian Istanbul, but also on the European side in many seafront and inland neighbourhoods.
Where to Buy Villas in Istanbul?
Your budget will play a significant factor in deciding where to buy. The Bosphorus shorefront is home to many luxurious villas for sale, known as Yali mansions. Most of these magnificent mansions date from the Ottoman era and are under preservation status. Hence they sell for millions of dollars and are one of the world’s most expensive real estate markets. Neighbourhoods with a luxury portfolio include Uskudar, Sariyer, Emirgan, Tarabya, and Ortakoy.
As Istanbul reinvents its real estate market, certain areas are emerging as popular destinations for buyers and Buyukcekmece is one. Sitting in European Istanbul, the region’s property portfolio includes one to six bedroom, off-plan, key ready and resale homes. With a varied collection of prices, architecture themes, sizes and much more, this is an excellent destination for budget and luxury buyers seeking a villa.
Outdoor Living Amenities of Villas for Sale in Istanbul
If you want a private residence, opt for a villa with your own pool and garden. Otherwise, a common theme appearing in many districts is community facilities in gated complexes. Shared amenities include Olympic sized swimming pools, gyms, saunas, on-site security, landscaped gardens, caretakers and concierge services. All owners contribute a maintenance fee towards their upkeep and get to enjoy them without the hassle. These types of complexes are also ideal for those who want to purchase a buy-to-let and earn income from holiday rentals as your guest will want for nothing.
