alaattin apartments is a carefully restored and exceptionally well designed apartment building located on Serdar-i Ekrem Caddesi in the heart of the popular neighbourhood of Galata.
The complete project comprises of two historical period apartment buildings that have been connected as one building since the 1930’s under one deeded land plot of 145.5m2. The buildings are open and joined at the heel to form “L” shaped flats.
In total there are seven luxurious flats of various sizes totalling over 1,016.36m2. as well as one street level shop/office duplex (permitted ISYERI) of 74.97m2.. In total the entire project is 1,091.33m2 with a very low ratio of common area to gross area.
The building features direct lift access to the upper five suites, three metre high brick-vaulted ceilings throughout, beautifully restored stone foundation walls dating to the mid-1800’s, a main marble staircase and other features of classic European architecture.
The top two flats have unencumbered panoramic views over the Bosphorus Strait, Topkapi Palace, Aga Sofia, Blue Mosque, Sea of Marmara, Princes’ Islands and even the Uludag Mountains. And a lower flat features a rare view to the 19th Century Crimean Church and Bosphorus Strait.
Kat5 is the upper most flat at alaattin apartments and features loft style open floor plan living and has a variety of tremendous city and sea views throughout the flat. The flat boasts an extremely rare and large terrace that has 270 degree views that include colourful city shots, expansive sea views as well as a grand panoramic view over the historical peninsula, home to Istanbul's most important historical monuments. This truly special and unique home offers the guests a spacious one bedroom with possible additional sleeping quarters located in the open loft.
Our most popular flat, Kat4 has been affectionately called the Fish Bowl hosting a large bright living area with incredible panoramic views and windows on three sides. The open plan living space has perhaps the finest desk to work from in all of Beyoglu as well as a large, yet cozy place to relax and take in the expansive views. The flat also features a bright and spacious kitchen, adjacent dining table for six as well as a balcony ideal for breakfasts or evening drinks, all with never ending seascapes and landscapes. This very spacious one bedroom suite will keep you captivated with its forever changing sunrises and moon rises, something not to miss.
This is a large two bedroom bright suite full of charming features throughout. An extra large master bedroom also offers the guests a bright cozy nook with street views as well as a restored caste iron bathtub open to the room as a perfect corner to relax after a day out on the streets. A large living space with open plan kitchen provides a wonderful social space to enjoy with friends. This flat has the original floor boards which were carefully lifted and restored before being replaced in this unit.
A favourite of the owner -- his home for 6 years -- Kat2 simply has great energy and spirit. It is located midway up at alaattin apartments and is a large two bedroom, one and a half bathroom flat. Original exposed brick ceilings are perhaps the finest in the entire building as well as the restored brick walls. A colourful kitchen gives a large living space a vibrant place to cook, enjoy a fine meal or chill with friends and guests. The flexible second bedroom also hosts a working space as well as an expandable double bed. This is a wonderful flat to enjoy for a night or stay for a year!
Though this flat is full of charming details and fine workmanship plus an amazing kitchen, perhaps the most notable feature is the balcony with tremendous view of the mid-19th Century Crimean Church and Bosporus. This flat is a spacious two bedroom, one and a half bathrooms with plenty of cozy corners and nooks as well as an open plan living area ideal for entertaining guests or chilling on your own. The flat has been overly popular for young couples starting families and has been the "first" home for three children since the restoration was completed -- something we are very proud to have hosted.
This "dukkan" or shop is the headquarters for alaattin apartments.. The two floor unit is currently set up as a home office with a small kitchen & bar plus living and working spaces located on the upper level and a complete home on the lower level with full bathroom, bedroom and wardrobes on the lower level.
A truly unique and extraordinary suite, alaattin #1 is a private entrance two floor townhouse style flat located at Serdar-i Ekrem Caddesi #48. This flat has many special features including a "hammam" bathroom, an open gallery to the lower floor, stone walls dating to the mid-1800's, a cozy patio, an open fireplace as well as re-purposed stone staircase connecting the two levels. Without a doubt the most unique flat which was featured in the New York Times.
We hope you enjoy our short tour of the building showing apartments, best features and amazing views.
