Magnificent stone built luxury villa for sale in Bodrum, Gumusluk with private pool, large gardens and sea views. Luxury quality contemporary fittings and fixtures fused with natural materials have been used to create this very traditionally built but contemporary chic interior designed home.
Set on a gentle hillside in a quiet location, less than 5 mins drive to historic Gumusluk bay, Bodrum Peninsula means the beach and restaurants are close by with larger towns such as Turgutreis, Yalikavak and Bodrum itself being 10 and 20 minutes away.
This amazing new villa is one of 7 designed and built in traditional style by a Turkish businessman whose dream was to build and recreate a small natural ‘village’ similar to that he grew up in. The houses are built from local stone and blend perfectly with the natural surroundings. Character and charm has been considered both inside and outside. Inside exposed stone walls blend with chic modern fixtures and furnishings. Spacious interiors provide light throughout and the kitchen opening onto the large covered dining terrace, pool, gardens and sea beyond provide a range of mesmerizing views.
The 4 main bedrooms either have en-suite or shared bathrooms and are located inside the house or one room has it’s own separate stairway, rather like a self-contained guest suite. The study/office room at ground floor could be made into a 5th bedroom offering flexible accommodation for larger groups of people at the villa.
Outside, the grounds are large. The stunning pool itself is 10m x 5m and is set in lawned gardens, to the right of the pool another large shady pergola/BBQ area provides the perfect spot for taking in the natural scenery and an evening drink as the sun sets. There is also a wine store/cellar. A superb home which will be the envy of all. High quality furnishings are for sale but for discussion.
The peaceful village of Gumusluk is one of the oldest settlements on the Bodrum peninsula standing on the site of the ancient Carian city of Myndus. 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.
