russnlyn is on a distinguished road
new house new life.

We have been in turkey for a week now viewing properties each day. Some were nice, some were awful. But none had that wow factor. Then on Wednesday we had an appointment with oceanwide properties.sulaman the estate agent had three villa's lined up for us to view. Again the first two were OK but didn't tick enough boxes to be contenders. I was beginning to think
Finding the perfect house within our budget was not going to happen. Then we went to see the last house. We hadn't even got through the garden gate but knew this was the house for us, it has everything we could have hoped for and more. A large mature established garden
swimming pool, 4 bedrooms, and mountain views to die for, the villa is surrounded by farmland, one Side is an expansive orchard, to the other side is open fields for grazing cattle.
And yet it is only a 10 minutes walk into the centre of uzumlu village. It was over our intended budget, but we desperately wanted that house. So we put in a sensible offer, and after a tense 16 hour wait got the news that our offer had been accepted. I would just like to thank all on this site who have contributed advice on buying turkish property and other subjects relating to turkish living.
We now look forward to spending our retirement living in turkey.
Best regards.
russ/lynda.

Re: new house new life.

Best of luck, I sincerely hope that all goes well for you. I would still keep looking. When we first bought we spent 5 weeks in the Bodrum area driving around for up to 7 hours a day looking for properties for sale, occasionally using Emlaks too.Please give us regular updates of your progress.

Congratulations on finding your dream home.

I hope Philip (Saoirse) reads this post as he used to live in your new village. I'm sure if you need to know anything about it he will help you.

Actually "smilingly sit" or "happily occupy"

Two verbs together indicate an "ingly" English verb ending as in koşa koşa
gidin "go runningly" or "run away".
