We are a recently retired Ambassador Adnan and wife Oya. We have a 30 years old son living in Finland. We live in a very pleasant and safe area in the Suburban area close to Black sea coast of European side of İstanbul. We love going to the local Bazaars for fresh produce grown near by village of Gümüşdere. Our region has beautifull breezy weather clean and fresh comming from the black sea. You can go for walks. There is a sports Club with free entrancevfor tennis. There is a salt water swimming pool in our Compaund which
is very private and clean and pleasant before and after city visits. All day if you want to read and rest. One can easily read write sleep rest listen to music drink wine, Turkish vines are quiet reccomended comming from all different regions and can be bought at the market 10 min. walking distance. We are extremely lucky to have found our home here. I am a painter I have my studio on the attic with a terrace in front of it. You can draw and paint if you like without making a mess on the carpet. The bus stop is 5 min walk. The bus takes 30 min to the metro station. We reccomend renting a car and using Yandex to reach your destination. Taxis are very affordable. There is so much to see in Istanbul. In this house you can have best of both worlds. Relaxing and sightseeing shopping and dining. Endless possibilities. Walking or jogging by the Bosphorous strait. Visiting Palaces Museums of all kinds. We have lived in 7 countries in the last 36 years. We have items and furniture from all around the world. I would like my visitors to take care and appriciate this kind of setting.
