This beautiful stone house is in Bodrum Yalıkavak on a land of about 4 dunam which is equivalent to 1 acre, a building structure of 470 sqm that was built in 2008. A 3-storey stone-covered house sitting on the mountains, built with local stone called Çilek stone, found only in Bodrum. This house also has an extension building for the housekeeping staff.
The living room is located on the main floor, and the master bedroom on the top floor, the house has high arched ceilings, walking inside you would realize how spacious it is, this spaciousness provides peace and tranquility. The open kitchen, guest room, and living room are located on the main floor of the house. The guest room on this floor has an extension of 30 square meters terrace, where guests would be hosted, and it has a sea view of Bodrum. On this terrace, there is a wood firepit positioned in the middle of the seating arrangement to enjoy the view in any season, warm or cold. Also, this terrace is equipped with a home theater set up for outdoor movie nights. In parallel to this terrace, outside of the main living room, there is another terrace designed as a comfortable living space. This area has been designed with pergola and has been made suitable for summer and winter use too. On the ground floor of the house, there are two children’s rooms and two guest rooms. The children’s rooms on this floor have a direct access to the lower-level garden that’s full of fruit trees and a playground.
After entering from the main gate, on the right side there’s a small house for the staff, that includes bedrooms, dining area, full kitchen with an outdoor stone oven, and bathrooms. The property owners are energy conscious and aware of the energy problems our World is having; a complete solar system was installed in the house to supply all the energy needed from the sun, making it a green energy house that’s environment friendly.
Located on a mountain, there are seating areas with different concepts at different levels on the land. You may enjoy the sun by the pool, you would also be able to enjoy a cup coffee in a cooler area under the olive trees at the same time. Since it is a summer house, we wanted to use materials that are easy to clean and water-resistant surfaces. We used decorative plaster for the walls, and micro-concrete for the floor giving it a summer house ambiance.
Adjusting a minor part of the original structure of the house, we made openings in the walls to allow for more sunlight and installed insulated windows to keep the internal climate under control.
