is what this house is …. and if I had the money !!!!?????
I would buy this very special yellow Ottoman style house in Istanbul, just opposite Yerebatan Sarnıcı, Basilica Cistern. When looking at it.. two men came up to me and asked if I like the house and of course both was the owner to the house.
A beautiful wooden house that just is left to fall into disgrace and with a tragic history.
What I understand the last tenant or owner was the Istanbul Tourist Police. Over internet I being told that this is the station a female suicide bomber blow herself up inside the house in January this year, she killed one officer and injured another.
But looking at the house it looks like it have been abandoned for years and neither it looks like there has been a bomb blast inside the house, at least not from the outside. A bit confusing. Not a window broken.
Only foot steps away from all the TOURIST MUSTS – so if I had the money what would I turn it into?????? A small designer hotel or maybe a hotel for only female guests.
Every time I look at the house the more I fall in love …. but I wish there was a small garden to go with it.
I’m sure that the house will have a massive price as it stands to day .. and to make it up to standard of comfortable living – talking about millions, which I don’t have. Have asked around a bit and it seems like it’s Istanbul city council that owns the house.
I feel sorry for the tourist police that had to leave this beautiful house for a ugly concrete bunker in the Sultan Ahmet Parkı.
Somebody needs to make this house happy again.
I would keep it yellow and with white window shutters and loads of orange roses in the front and a jasmine tree …. the best of all is that dreaming doesn’t cost anything, but to manage to make this dream come true …. I have to be a bit of a pirate in more than one way, have to put my Jack Sparrow hat on.
