Architecture of Cesme Houses

Traditional Cesme houses have an authentic architecture. The old houses that you can frequently come across while you are in Cesme are mainly from the 18th century.

Exterior

These houses do not have a front garden and they are lined up in a townhouse style. 
The main door of the house leads you to the street. The windows facing the street have wooden shutter, which are mainly painted blue. 
Old Cesme houses have two styles. Either the exterior of the house is left bare stone (which is the desirable style today) or they plaster the stone walls and paint it white. 
The houses are built on narrow streets to keep away from the hot weather. They only have back gardens, which are cooler because of the shade. Some of the houses (mainly the ones that you can see in Cesme center) have shop units below the property. The owners used to live above their shop unit. 
The majority of the houses are two storeys, however occasionally you can see the 3 floor styles as well. However they all have bow windows, which is unique to Cesme area. 
The back and front of the house have windows symetrically for good ventilation. The houses that have a symetric layout are called 'Sakiz Style', which means Mastic (a tree that grows only in Cesme in Turkey).

Interior

All the houses have small tiles on the floors, and wood is also used mainly on the stairs or close to the fireplace. 

The developers still continues to build properties in exactly the same style. Especially brand new villas in Alacati are replicas of how houses were centuries ago. While you are in Cesme, we advice you to visit houses in Alacati and Cesme center.
