- Buyer’s Guide
A statement of modern living in traditional, sedate surroundings. By amalgamating authentic local stone, combined with contemporary design and fittings, this architect has created exceptional homes to be truly admired.
The villas are built a short distance away from the peaceful and historic bay of Gumusluk on the Bodrum Peninsula yet within a 10 minute drive of bustling Turgutries in one direction and 20 mins to the cosmopolitan resort of Yalikavak with its smart marina, shops, restaurants and nightlife in the other.
Interiors have been carefully considered and designed to daringly blend into the natural surroundings using the mix of tradition and modern innovation. For example stone walls and wood fused with high gloss ultramodern kitchen fittings and contemporary furnishings set against a backdrop of stone and local reed. Open plan living and kitchen and dining areas let the outside in, whilst the 4 bedrooms (all with en-suite bathrooms) provide spacious accommodation for families and guests. Extending the adventurous design spirit, an outside bathroom completes the uniqueness of these properties.
Outside, the private pool blends into the natural environment. As you would expect the same thought has been considered towards the design and use of materials. Here, wooden decking surrounds the pool area and a reed roof has been fitted over the pool pergola in keeping with the native environment.
Because of this, Gumusluk is protected against developments, which means it has not been over developed.
Today Gumusluk retains a small-scale, relaxed and magical atmosphere thanks to strictly enforced building prohibitions, designed to protect the ancient site. Gumusluk is the perfect antidote for modern-day living, it’s a great place to unwind in an idyllic setting. Bars & Restaurants are also forbidden from playing music too loud!
The wonderful shelter of the bay provides a natural harbour for yachts and local fishing boats, and the waterfront restaurants enjoy a reputation for excellent fresh fish amongst the Turks as far away as Istanbul. Gumusluk is famed amongst many famous Turkish actors, artists and musicians who frequent the bay during the summer months.
Rabbit Island, famous for its rabbits scurrying around, offers a magnificent panorama of the bay, and separates the two well-sheltered bays of Gumusluk. It is easily accessible by a partially sunken causeway.
