Rumelihisarı is best known for its fortress 'Roumeli Hissar Castle' which is where the areas gained its name, dating back to the 1450's with three great towers and 13 smaller watchtowers. It sits at the narrowest point of the Bosphorus straits directly opposite the Anatolian castle, another Ottoman fortress built in the 1390's.Since 1960 Rumelihisarı has been a museum and an open-air theatre for concerts and festivals during the summer months and is open to visitors every day.
The area is very desirable to the wealthy Istanbul Turks, with some amazing luxury homes overlooking the Bosphorus, and right on the waterfront you will see some of the Ottoman Yali mansions, though you will need to travel up by boat to the full glory if these houses are they a very heavily guarded by high walls and security guards protecting the privacy of their wealthy owners.
This private 3 bedroom villa sits quite close to the water with secluded private gardens, and being slightly elevated it also enjoys panoramic views of the sea across the short distance to the Asian side and its lush green hillsides and some of those stunning Yali mansions sitting within the stunning view, along with the Fatih Mehmet Sultan Bridge suspended high across the sea, giving access across to the Asian side of the city.
The gardens are filled with lots of mature planting and are set on tiered levels due to the contour of the local land, having stone pathways and several sets of steps leading to the various levels of the well-kept gardens.
The entrance to the villa is located to the side, with steel security door located under a fixed canopy entering into a reception hallway with highly polished ceramic tiled flooring and storage units for coats and shoes.
