Exploring the most exceptional properties in premier destinations across the globe.
Thanks to the gentle hills that line the coast of Bodrum, Turkey, many properties in the Mediterranean town are positioned to feature exceptional views of the sea. One such property, a hilltop villa in Yalıkavak, uses its unique design to maximize its scenic vista.
Breaking from the mold of the more traditional Mediterranean homes that decorate the region, the 535-square-meter villa showcases notes of contemporary architecture. Floor-to-ceiling windows and doors wrap along the edges of the three-story structure, leading out to a spacious wood balcony surrounded by a glass railing and a lower-level deck complete with a swimming pool.
A U-shape design allows for a central courtyard dotted with trees, and the flat roof makes for the perfect succulent garden. Despite its more modern styling, the property heavily features traditional materials, notably stone which runs throughout the exterior and interior. The airy, open main living space runs into lounging and dining areas, all opening onto the balcony for breezy indoor/outdoor living.
In addition to the central floating staircase, moving from one story to the next can be done via an elevator. The lowest level encompasses a two-car garage space.
The villa is part of an exclusive project consisting of 10 villas and over 30 residences. Community amenities offered to residents include a fitness center, spa, a basketball court, 24-hour security and outdoor, indoor and children’s swimming pools.
