A boutique development of stone houses set on six hectares of land located inYalikavak, the gem of the Bodrum Peninsula.
The vision sprouted from a family’s search for the ideal home, a peaceful sanctuary immersed in nature. The vision was later extended to a total of 11 estates.
The houses are constructed mainly out of local Hekim Köy stones by the regions last remaining stonemasons. A modern homage to the historic stone architecture once common to the Bodrum region.
Architects of the project include world-renowned Turkish architect Han Tumertekin, winner of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.
Comprised of eleven stonehouse estates each set within a 4,000 – 5,000m² plot, ensuring privacy and spectacular views of Yalikavak Bay. Construction permits for the project have been secured. The first house was completed and handed over to its owner in 2016. Out of the remaining ten houses three are available for sale.
The houses are built specifically for year-round living. Under floor heating and central air conditioning is featured throughout all indoor living areas. The walls are constructed 50-60cm thick to provide maximum isolation, minimizing absorption of heat from the sun to keep cool during the summer months and protecting against heat-loss during the winters.
Design changes within the boundaries of the approved plans are possible based on the requirements of the owner. Interior finishes are flexible depending on the personal preferences of the owner.
