Description

A three-bedroom house of character located in the middle of a winding road in a sought-after area in Zebbug. The layout comprises of a welcoming hall with the sitting room on the left and a door leading to a good size courtyard opposite the front door. On the right one finds the stairway that takes you up to the first floor, also adjacent to a large and beautiful dining room.

At the back of the house and interconnected to the dining room is a spacious kitchen which also leads on to the courtyard. A spare toilet is tucked under the outside stairs and from here one can access the cellar which presently is being used as a store.

The sleeping quarters are on the first floor, with the master bedroom having a large en-suite bathroom. On this floor one also finds a shared shower room and two other bedrooms.

A spiral staircase takes you up to a large washroom with roof terrace. The sitting room has the option to be converted into a garage (wooden door in place). The oldest parts of the house are 400 years old and the present proud owners worked meticulously to retain all original features such as arches, wooden beams, rooms with high ceilings made out of stone slabs (xorok) resting on corbels (kileb), limestone walls, various recesses, original Maltese patterned tiles and many more. A lot of charm, character and cosy atmosphere makes the property a place to call home.
