Location description from owner

The Istanbul region

Istanbul is at the crossroad between Europe and Asia-- and no place on the earth emboddies both cultures in the way this city does. It is where East meets West. The Bosphorus, the channel between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea, separates these two huge continents

Istanbul

The building is perfectly positioned to take advantage of all the attractions near by. Beyazit and the Grand Bazaar are within 5-10 min walk, and the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia 15 minutes away. The Famous Fish market and restaurants of Kumkapi just to Marmara coast are within 5 minutes walk from Ascot House - Kumkapi is a perfect place to taste the fantastic fish that can be eaten in Istanbul. The local area within Sultanamet that the property is situated is called Gedik Pasa (named after a famous Ottoman general) and has a bohemian past. In 19th century a local theatre was built and the area was a centre of the arts influenced by a large population of Christian Armenians who flourished there. Some Armenians still remain- as one can tell when one visits the small Church of St John barely 50 yards up the street. The district is now a large shoe making area and has a real bustle all of its own. Small local grocers are situated close by and will be able to service all your basic food requirements, and towards the Grand Bazaar you will find many very affordable and not too touristy cafes-.Specific Attractions includeAya Sofia (Hagia Sophia)This impressive monument to Christianity was erected during the reign of Emperor Justinian (532 - 537 A.D.), when the Byzantine Empire was at the height of its power. The surviving Byzantine mosaics date from the 6th-10th centuries. Converted to a mosque after the conquest of Constantinople, today the church is a museum. Address: Ayasofia Meydani, Sultanahmet.Topkapi PalaceMehmet II began construction of Topkapi Palace shortly after his conquest of Constantinople, and the original buildings were finished in 1465. The palace served as the seat of governance, as well as the sultan’s private living spaces, which included the famed harem. Opened as a museum in 1924, it features unparalleled collections of ceramics, imperial costumes, jewels, miniatures and manuscripts, armor, and religious relics. Address: Babihümayun Cad., Sultanahmet.Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Camii)Known for its interior of blue Iznik tiles, the Blue Mosque was built by imperial architect Mehmet Aga in 1609-1616. With over 250 windows in the structure, sunlight floods in, adding to the feeling of space within. Address: Sultanahmet Meydani, Sultanahmet.Grand BazaarIn addition to being literally filled to the roof with shops and goods, the Grand Bazaar also boasts restaurants, banks, a post office, a mosque and its own police station. The labyrinths of streets are packed with shops, the merchandise of which spills out into the pathways. Built by Mehmet II after his conquest of the city in 1453, the bazaar is, of course, the place where bargaining is de rigueur. Address: Çarsikapi Cad., Beyazit. Basilica Cistern -Built by the Emperor Justinian in 532, the cistern was constructed to supply water to the Great Palace, situated nearby on the Hippodrome. After the conquest of the city by the Ottomans, the cistern went unnoticed until it became apparent that people were lowering buckets through holes in their basements to collect water. Today visitors can explore it along walkways, accompanied by the sounds of dripping water and piped-in classical music. Address: 13 Yerebatan Cad., Sultanahmet.Spice Bazaar (Egyptian Bazaar)Once the pharmacy of the Ottoman Empire, the Spice Bazaar, also called the Egyptian Bazaar, is still an active spice market filled with herbs, spices, honeys, nuts, dried fruits and caviar. Outside of the bazaar, in the courtyard facing the imposing Yeni Mosque, is a thriving horticultural market. Address: Cami Meydani Sokak, Eminönü. Rüstem Pasa MosqueThis small mosque, built in 1561, is a welcome respite from the frenetic pace of the Spice Bazaar. Designed by Ottoman master architect Sinan for Sultan Süleyman’s son-in-law and Grand Vizier, Rüstem Pasa, this mosque is known for its fantastic array of Iznik tiles. Address: Hasicilar Cad., Eminönü.Chora Church (Kariye Camii)Covered with some of the finest Byzantine mosaics and frescoes in the world, the Church of St. Savior in Chora was built during the 11th century. The mosaics depict the genealogy of Christ, the life of the Virgin Mary, the Infancy of Christ and his ministry. The frescoes are thought to have been painted around 1320. Address: Kariye Camii Sokak, Edirnekapi.Beyoglu area and Iskitlal St in general—a walk up from Karikoy or a walk down from Taksim Square. Galata Tower—This is a famous landmark in Istanbul. The nine-story tower is 66.90 meters tall (62.59 m without the ornament on top, 51.65 m at the observation deck), and was the city's tallest structure when it was built. The elevation at ground level is 35 meters above sea-level. The tower has an external diameter of 16.45 meters at the base, an 8.95 meters diameter inside, and walls that are 3.75 meters thick.There is a restaurant and café on its upper floors which commands a magnificent view of Istanbul and the Bosphorus. Also located on the upper floors is a nightclub which hosts a Turkish show. There are two operating elevators that carry visitors from the lower level to the upper levels. Entrance to the tower costs 10 TL (Turkish Lira). Dolmabaçhe PalaceBuilt in 1856 by Sultan Abdul Mecit, the palace was designed by the Balyan family, a renowned Armenian family of architects. Entry to the palace is by guided tour only, with one tour including the state rooms and Ceremonial Hall. The second tour is of the harem, with the living quarters of the sultan and his family. Atatürk’s bedroom is preserved as it was at the time of his death on November 10, 1938. Address: Dolmabaçhe Cad., Besiktas.Princes’ Islands (Adalar)Just a 45-minute ferry ride from the city, the Princes’ Islands offer a welcome change of pace from urban life. Justin II was the first to build a palace on Büyükada in 569. During the Byzantine era, the Islands were home to many monasteries, where exiles were often sent. In the second half of the 19th century, the introduction of steamboats made access easier and as a result, wealthy families began to settle there. The easiest way to get there is by the ferries running from Sirkeci or Kabatas
