Zekeriyaköy, the Beauty and Sophistication of Istanbul

When it comes to the most beautiful areas of Istanbul, it is normal to think of Zekeriyaköy, which is one of the wonderful areas embraced by the picturesque nature, and close to the most beautiful parts of the city.


Zekeriyaköy, geography, and location

In the European part of Istanbul, next to the Bosphorus between the two parts of the city, in the Sarıyer district, and next to the vast forests of Belgrad, Zekeriyaköy is located.

The area is about 6 kilometers from the Bosphorus and about 8 kilometers from the Black Sea, close to the Sultan Selim I Bridge (the third bridge) linking the Asian and European continents, and is also close to the heart of Istanbul.

On the other hands, the area enjoys a beautiful rural environment, which reflects the beauty of nature, elegance of buildings, and modern infrastructure, giving it a special privilege among the areas of Istanbul, and a distinctive luster, casting its impact on the real estate market.

Therefore, these advantages give the Zekeriyaköy area a priority over many other areas of Istanbul, making it one of Istanbul's most spectacular areas.

Zekeriyaköy district of Sarıyer is an important district where real estate prices are increasing. Although the district is located within the city, it gives its inhabitants the opportunity to live in the picturesque nature, where the sea overlaps with green forests, and detached villas with private gardens spread there. This has had a significant impact on their prices and rents where the prices of villas have become very high, which is commensurate with its luxury and important position in the city of Istanbul making it a place for the rich and the elite.

In general, Zekeriyaköy Istanbul area is desirable by the wealthy, as Turkey’s richest people often inhabit it.
