Pasabahce, meaning the “Garden’s of the Pasha”, was once home to Şişecam (Turkey’s pride in glassware production) and Tekel Drinks factories (one of the oldest, if not the oldest drink production company dating back to Ottoman times). It is located in the Beykoz district. One of Istanbul’s historical industrial villages on the Anatolian banks of the Bosphorus.
It is thought that the garden that gave its name to this village once belonged to Hezarpare Ahmet Pasha, who had served as the grand vizier of the 18th Ottoman Sultan İbrahim for a short time.
“Twin Andonaki Mansions”, which is one of the most special mansions of Paşabahçe and also of Istanbul, actually consists of two separate but identical buildings with each building containing of two adjacent mansions.
Thus, Twin Andonaki Mansions are also referred to as a “mansion cluster” formed by four separate mansions.
In terms of its features, the mansion we have the privilege of presenting here is the most distinguished among “the cluster” of four mansions. Looking from the sea towards the land, it is the mansion on the far left.
Among them, it is the only mansion that boasts a private pool. It is also the one with the largest plot of land, compared to the other three. The adjacent open car park land was bought and joined into, thus creating a much more spacious offering in comparison to the others in the “mansion cluster”.
This expansion gave possibility to the inclusion of a private garage that can park two cars at the same time and an annex building with a 1+1 flat (containing of a bedroom and a living room). The mansion has recently undergone a 3-year extensive restoration. Everything from its infrastructure to its decoration has been renewed, whilst preserving the original features of the mansion. As the images and video bear witness, it has been renovated to a high standard, employing qualified workmanship and use of high-quality materials.
It is an extraordinary property. Its 9 meters long dock and the original kitchen featuring unique Iznik tiles make it a historical treasure. Yet, it benefits from all the modern technology that is available to make it an enjoyable and easy to preserve building. Its lift gives access to all its 4-floors. The special water pumping system discharges the moist and water thus preserving the basement of the mansion 24/7. The Mansion benefits from a private terrace that employs a piston mechanism system to open the roof. With many more modern and traditional features this truly is an exceptional property, short of treasure on the banks of the historical Bosphorus of Istanbul.
This is a jewel along the Bosphorus that awaits its new family.
