Bodrum, Turkey

Bodrum Retreat is a private home in Dirmil, Yalikavak, Bodrum. Construction was completed in 1996.
On the first floor, there is a large traditional kitchen with a commercial stove, grill, etc., and a very large wood fireplace. The kitchen includes hand-crafted solid wood cabinetry, carved with designs by a noted artist. The kitchen has 2 doors leading to the front patio of the house.

Adjacent is the dining room with a Byzantine vaulted ceiling and an Indian dining table for up to 10 persons. Sliding clear glass doors lead to the courtyard.

The painting exhibition hallway adjoins the kitchen/dining room and is decorated with traditional local seastone flooring. One side of the hall leads to the dining room courtyard and the other side leads to a glass-enclosed sitting room with an exit and clear view of the primary courtyard next to the main entry stone stairway.

On the rear side of the hallway is a guest bathroom/bath. To one side of the bathroom is a storage room easily converted to a bedroom and on the other side of the bathroom is a library room.

A wide stone staircase, in the back of the kitchen fireplace, leads to the second floor.

You enter a large living room with a Byzantine old brick vaulted ceiling and a wide wood-burning fireplace. There are a total of 4 double glass doors facing the sea.
There are three potential bedroom areas although only 2 are used as bedrooms.
A large marble hammam with a center (gobek) stone adjoins an open office area and the master bedroom.
A hall separates the living area from the bedrooms and the hammam
All doors throughout the house are antique early 20th century, wood carved.
