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 Demir├Âren family, was burnt down in 1983, and it has been subsequently renovated. The original building dates back to the end of 1800's.
