Buyers of property in Sancaktepe for sale have 19 neighborhoods within Sancaktepe to choose from, of which Samandıra and Sarıgazi form the central hub.

The options of Sancaktepe property 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 and before they continued to the ruling center of Sultanahmet. Ruined in the 13th century, the current structure shows a little resemblance to its former glory, but plans are in place for future restorations.
Another memorable moment in its history was in the 1970s when locals moved from agriculture to industrial production and growing neighborhoods prompted a more urban feel, away from traditional rural villages.
Sancaktepe has much potential for the future. Formed in 2008, as a breakaway district from surrounding districts, several houses for sale in Sancaktepe aim to boost the quality of life for property owners and buyers.
