The Developer

Braemore Gemini has been operating in Turkey for over ten years. Founded in 2005 the company built the multiple award winning Aegean Hills, in Bodrum. Award winning architecture, contemporary design, innovative interiors and a meticulous attention to detail are the hallmarks that help to distinguish their projects and The Jacaranda Estate will be no exception.

Braemore Gemini has now handed over the management of Aegean Hills and the construction management of The Jacaranda Estate to aPad Estates, a company founded by three previous Braemore Gemini directors.

Aegean Hills, our previous development in Yalikavak

aPad Estates continues to operate with the same passion for creating distinctive properties, combined with an obsession for extraordinarily attentive client support that ensures that the process of buying and owning property as effortless as possible. The company will manage the Jacaranda villas once the development is completed.

aPad Estates believe the true meaning of luxury is attention to detail; that sometimes it’s the little things in life that matter most. And it’s the little things that distinguish us from our competitors.


"I purchased a villa at Aegean Hills as a ten year investment in 2007. What swung it for me was the Braemore connection; even though I own properties in Spain, I felt more comfortable dealing with a reputable UK developer. They are still high quality builders and the service levels are exemplary. The gardens have now matured and the villas are maintained each year during the winter period. I have decided to now retire to Yalikavak and had no hesitation in buying a villa at Jacaranda once planning permission was granted. I already get regular updates and photos via the website which takes all the worry out of it."

"We were one of the first to buy a villa at Aegean Hills. We were looking for a quality second home for family holidays and it had to be in Bodrum, we got added peace of mind that we’re buying with a company we trust. We will spend the whole summer at the new villa and rent out our villa at Aegean Hills through Ozer and their rental team"

"My purchase at Aegean Hills is strictly for investment purposes and a welcome addition to my emerging markets portfolio. I have been pleasantly surprised at how much easier and cheaper it is to buy in Turkey than in countries like Portugal and Spain. I will now add Jacaranda to the portfolio."

— Graeme Kemp, Mallorca

"We decided to buy at Jacaranda for a number of reasons. We’re familiar with Braemore’s work in the UK and the many awards they have attained over the years and have stayed with friends at their first project in Bodrum. We were not able to buy at the time but are now very happy we waited for Jacaranda. We wanted to buy an individual villa that was very private that stylistically was different and more modern compared with the very homogenous aesthetic of much of the property available on the Bodrum Peninsula."

— John Whitehead & Rob Beacham, Nottinghamshire
