Necip Bey was a French aristocrat. He accepted the Muslim religion in order to be able to get married to Melike Aliye Hanim. The building behind the mansion which has a tower, was the winter residence of Necip Bey. The yali, which now belongs to the Demirören family, was burnt down in 1983, and it has been subsequently renovated. The original building dates back to the end of 1800's.
