This quaint three-bedroom townhouse is just around the corner from the Senglea square and two minutes away from the church. It needs a little bit more restorative work before it can be fully enjoyed for what it is.
On the ground floor, you will find a hall, kitchen, dining room and the backyard that can be seen just beyond these glass doors. A limestone staircase leads first to an intermediate level with the main bathroom. Further up on the first floor is a single bedroom.
On the second floor, two bedrooms have access to a terrace. One of these bedrooms is a large master bedroom with a balcony. The private roof can be reached from a further stone spiral staircase.
Quiet little corners and traditional arches can be found throughout this home, where a past conversion was sympathetic to historic styles.
This little yard provides a tiny bit of outside space for the new owners. It would look lovely filled with little plants.
The water and electricity systems have been renewed recently and the bottom floor walls have Maltese stone. This home has traditional Maltese features like patterned tiles and high ceilings with wooden beams.
This rooftop could provide space for an additional floor (should planning permit) or be reserved for a BBQ or roof garden.
The home has the potential to be a lovely small home after some work.

Senglea is a small, fortified town in the southeast of Malta standing on a narrow promontory that huts into the Grand Harbour. It is one of the Three Cities, alongside Cospicua and Vittoriosa. This town is known for its superb harbour views across to Valletta from Safe Haven Gardens at Senglea Point. The stone vedette, known as Il-Gardjola, on the bastion-point served as a look-out post to guard the harbour entrance. Senglea is the smallest locality in Malta, and also one of its most densely popular.
Senglea suffered heavy damage during World War II, when more than 75 per cent of its buildings were destroyed. The parish church dedicated to the Nativity of the Madonna was rebuilt and retains its artistic heritage.
A ferry takes people across the harbour to Valletta, and the promenade with restaurants, a swimming area and the Gardjola Gardens add additional charm to this small village.
Property prices in Senglea are below the average in Malta, although prices and interest from investors have been rising since the Cottonera Waterfront project saw the shoreline and yacht marina renovated.
