It’s a toss-up as to what’s more stunning: the views of the deep blue Aegean Sea and marina lined with superyachts or the chic residence itself.

Yalikavak, on Turkey’s Bodrum Peninsula, is a former fishing village turned high-end resort destination. Its traditional two-story stone houses are known as Bodrum evleri or basement houses.

“These houses often have white-washed walls, wooden shutters and red-tiled roofs,” says real estate agent Mihane Sadiku of Best Invest–Turkey. “They offer a blend of historical architecture with modern amenities.”

Today, many residences in the beach city are in use as second/vacation homes or summer rentals. The housing mix also includes newer villas incorporating contemporary architecture and high-quality finishes.

Sadiku and Stephen Garvey, also with Best Invest–Turkey, are representing one such luxury home that was completed a few years ago and is listed at EUR2.31 million or about USD 2.5 million. The villa mixes traditional materials, such as stone and wood with walls of glass and sleek outdoor living areas. The glass-enclosed decks and pool offer views of the sea. The structure’s horizontal design is strong and encloses the center courtyard. The flat roof is topped by a rock and succulent garden dotted with skylights.

The home has 535 square meters (nearly 6,000-square-feet) of living space.
