The district has much to offer anyone looking to buy a property in Sancaktepe Istanbul. Sitting in Anatolian Istanbul, it is one of the lesser talked about neighborhoods of the great metropolis. However affordable prices, stunning architecture as well as a close location to green forests and the blue coastline are luring in property buyers who want the benefits of city living without hustle and bustle.
Istanbul property buyers have 19 neighborhoods within Sancaktepe to choose from, of which Samandıra and Sarıgazi form the central hub. Covering 62.000 kilometers and with a population of 402.000 residents, Sancaktepe is more about getting in touch with nature, but it does have one historical landmark. The options of the apartment and Sancaktepe villa for sale reflect this history.
The Byzantine Damatris Palace was known as the “Great door to Anatolia.” Royalty and dignitaries from that era in Istanbul’s history rested there after long journeys before they continued to the ruling center of Sultanahmet. Ruined in the 13th century, unfortunately, the current structure shows a little resemblance of its former glory, but plans are in place for future excavations.
Another memorable moment in its history was in the 1970s when locals moved from agricultural to industrial production, and growing neighborhoods prompted a more urban feel, away from traditional rural villages.
