Architectural Styles of Villas for Sale in Turkey
Airy, full of light and modern villas in Turkey, are European industry leaders, thanks to their high-quality build and Mediterranean features. Architects have understood the need for maximum sunlight and most houses have balconies, poolside terraces, and sometimes even a roof terrace. It doesn’t stop there, though. Over the last decade, Turkish architects have risen through the ranks to become some of the most talented in the world. Designing homes to fit in with landscapes, their styles are seen in places like Kalkan where most luxury homes face the Mediterranean Sea and include ceiling to floor windows to make the most of that fantastic view.
Some homes for sale in Bodrum are designed in the typical stone cottage style that the region is famous for, hence provoke a sense of nostalgia while still providing owners with all the benefits of modern home living. Meanwhile, head over to Uzumlu where the prices of houses are low, and in keeping in line with the mountain theme, homes have extensive gardens, which are ideal for relaxing or putting your green fingers to work. Whether you design your villa or buy off-plan, new build or resale, you’ll find the home you want.
Are Turkish villas a Good Investment?
Over the last decade, more and more foreigners have flocked to buy villas in Turkey because it is one of world’s most attractive markets. The affordable prices per square metre attract many first-time foreign buyers unable to get their foot on the ladder in other countries because of high prices per square metre. This presents ideal capital appreciation if you plan to keep the property long term. However, should you sell, buyers in Turkey include Turks and many other nationalities from around the world, so you have a global market to advertise to.
Another factor influencing sales in the last two years is Turkey’s improved citizenship by investment scheme of which the entry-level of investment is a lot lower than other countries, and the quicker and easier process makes it easy to gain full rights to live and work in the country. Lastly, Turkey villas have fantastic rental potential. Kalkan villas are among the most popular and lucrative on the Turkish coast, followed by Fethiye villas and Bodrum villas. Turkish villas can net the owner anything up to 10% rental income each year. Another welcome side effect of owning a Turkish villa is that property prices are rising – by around 10% each year.
Where are the Best Places in Turkey to Buy a Villa?
There are thousands of villas for sale in Turkey, so deciding where to buy is about matching your ideal home with your lifestyle. Each region offers something unique, whether it be a low cost of living, a massive range of things to do, a sense of tradition, or for most buyers, a beachside location. Kalkan’s market revolves around luxury homes featuring private pools, landscaped gardens, huge terraces and modern living, and the resort itself fits in with this upmarket vibe. Budget buyers should look at the Fethiye region. Prices per square metre of houses in Uzumlu are unbelievable low, but in resorts like Hisaronu, Calis beach and Ovacik, you can still buy a low-price, beautiful home near the beach and main facilities like bars, restaurants, and shops.
Villas in Bodrum command a higher price, but owners are tapping into an exclusive lifestyle that often welcomes international celebrities and royalty. Popular places to buy a villa in Bodrum include the Gumusluk coastal resort; a small town that often seems detached from modern living and for many Turks and foreigners is the ideal place to retire. Whereas Yalikavak on the western face of Bodrum peninsula is a key player on the international mega-yacht sailing scene, hence, some homes for sale are luxury, million-pound mansions designed by world-renowned architects.
