The flat is at the entrance floor of a century-old 5-storey classical Greek building, a few steps from Aynalıçeşme Street, which is one of the most enjoyable sections of Taksim area to live. There are 2 airy rooms (around 15 sqm each), connected to a cosy living / working space, a well equipped kitchen connected to a small private backyard to get refreshed. It is an apartment ideal to be used as a home-office or as a residence for a couple / young family.
The flat is suitable to for the bank mortgage credits and it is also exempted from the real estate transaction tax and property tax as a historicly protected building.
HIGH QUALITY RENOVATION
The flat has recently been renovated, with the supervision of a good architect. All the floors have been covered with natural wood and hand-made cement tiles with traditional patterns. Original brick walls have partially been exposed to create a modern loft atmosphere. All the water, sewage and electiricity system have been renewed and natural gas heating has been added. Finally, the whole building's outside / inside coating and painting have been renewed.
Our neighborhood was rediscovered 5-6 years ago and became popular among the new urban generation, as well as expats and foreign students due to its central location and historic atmosphere. We are close enough to the shopping facilities of Istiklal Street, but still away from the hustle and bustle of Taksim. The area is well served by the public transport (several bus lines are 1 minute walk away and the nearest metro station is a 10-minute walk away at Şişhane). You can easily reach Yenikapı (Marmaray Tube passage to Anatolian side) and the shopping / business districts of Nişantaşı and Mecidiyeköy in around 10-15 minutes.
GOOD INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY
The flat is a five-minute walk away from the Taksim 360, the biggest urban renewal project of Istanbul to be launched with luxury offices and residential units. Once the project finalizes, the prices in the region would increase.
You can live here yourself, or easily rent it out (there is demand for 600 euros per month, bills included).
Exchange with 1+1 or 2+2 flats in Taksim+Pangaltı region is negotiable. A common terrace with a view of the Golden Horn and an empty floor (with 1/6 share) which can be used as a workplace / warehouse in the future are also registered to the title deed.
