The view from one of the many windows in the living area. The clouds and birds always put on a great show.

Description

Probably the best area in Istanbul. Charming old apartment with spacious open plan living space. Located in the middle of Istanbul's Cihangir neighborhood. Filled with cute cafes, restaurants, bars and gorgeous little streets to get lost in.

lots of light, beautiful views across the city, oodles and oodles of characters, including an original 1900 lift.

As a guest, you will sleep in the spare bedroom and have access to the rest of the house. That includes the living, dining and office area. Kitchen, bathroom, balcony etc...

I travel a lot, but if you happen to be here while i am. Ill hang out with you as much or as little as our schedules allow.

I bet guide books blethered on about "where east meets west" when Istanbul was Constantinople. But at least it's finally coming true again. On account of Turkey's wooing of both the EU and east Asia, the past decade has seen the city turn from lovely-if-decrepit museum piece to lovely-if-decrepit museum piece with great bars, economic growth and an OK public transport system. But spots like Cihangir make it all seem worthwhile. This is an Orhan Pamuk kind of neighbourhood. You'll still pass woodturning workshops, button warehouses and old ice-cream parlours en route for that dark, urbane bookshop. It still feels old and ancient and unrestored and a bit shabby. There are still whiskery grocers who'll deliver figs to the door. The dervishes still whirl up the hill at the Galata Lodge. Only now there's a great rooftop bar or six with views over the Bosphorus (I'd consider moving here for the views alone) and a good modern art gallery at the bottom of the hill. What with culture and economics so shifted to the east, this feels like where the world begins.
