An absolute rare opportunity … for sale… this luxury waterfront villa with private beach, which can only be accessed through the villa’s private grounds. A phenomenal stand alone luxury villa / mansion located on the waterfront in one of Bodrum’s most sought after bays.
The unique property is located in a quiet corner of Kucukbuk bay, which is a well established and highly regarded area close to the popular resorts of Turkbuku, Gundogan and Yalikavak on the Bodrum Peninsula. There are no empty land plots around the villa hence no further building permitted.
With only a small handful of such villas on the whole Bodrum coastline, this mansion truly is an elite property. As you would expect with a property of this calibre, the luxury accommodation does not need to be described in full detail. A viewing is essential. Living rooms and bedrooms are large, spacious and mostly sea facing. In total the villa has 8 spacious bedrooms all boasting spectacular sea views, further luxury touches such as a large Jacuzzi, a sauna room, hamam, snooker room, gymnasium and impressive wine cellar.
The stand out feature of the property is all about OUTSIDE – the wide sea front with a number of chill out and relaxing areas, a fully fitted bar and dining area, sundeck and a fully licensed jetty with a depth of around 5 meters making it ideal to moor a private yacht. The landscaped gardens are spread over 3 levels and contain a substantial sized infinity swimming pool and bar area.
The Villa has full and complete legal status. Current laws do not allow for a private residence to be built this close to the water which obviously means the few that do exist will always carry a premium.
Gundogan is situated between Yalikavak and Turkbuku on the Northern side of the Bodrum Peninsula. It is 25km from Bodrum and 7km from Yalikavak. Gundogan is a small traditional town on the Bodrum Peninsula. Historically, it was known as Farilya, today it is referred to as Gundogan, meaning “sunrise”. The ancient Lelegian city of Madnasa is nearby, and ancient rock formations to the east of the town are still visible.
It is still an important town for sponge diving, fishing, olive and tangerine growing. The old and also new settlers have protected the character of the town and new developments have not touched the older houses surrounded with trees of mandarins, olive, pomegranates, bananas and oak. The scent of orange trees welcoming visitors along the sea-side still remains.
The hillsides in this area of the Peninsula are shrouded in pine trees, and give Gundogan a different vibe than some of the more barren looking parts of the Peninsula. These hillsides are perfect for hiking and to explore the area for Leleg ruins.
Gundogan is where many Turkish families from Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir etc. have holiday homes which they visit each year which makes the town more ‘Turkish in feel compared with some of the neighbouring town. However, over the last decade, Gundogan has become popular with developers investing in the area, building smart hotels and holiday homes inhabited and frequented by tourists from other countries. The area now has a very smart, cosmopolitan feel but retains its traditional charm. It is also less expensive than other parts of the Peninsula.
Restaurants, cafes and boutique hotels line the horseshoe shaped beach, some have wooden jetties stretching out from the beach over the water with large colourful cushions and loungers provided for sunbathing and dining. Boutique hotels mix with traditional eating places, giving the area a traditional and chilled out atmosphere. Relax and take it easy with the local delicacies or a chilled glass of wine.
