The House Where Time Stood Still

Nadur, Gozo

2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms | Unconverted

This unconverted, presently two-bedroom traditional house is in need of extensive renovation, but its large rooms and 85 square metre garden are worth the work.

It has a welcoming hall with unique, traditional tiles still in good condition, connected to a formal sitting room that leads onto a bathroom. The hallway also leads onto a 30 square metre courtyard where you find the dining area, kitchen and spare toilet.

On the floor above reached by traditional wide external stairs is the main bedroom, which has unique, patterned and traditional tiles. This room also has a balcony and the possibility for an en-suite bathroom or walk-in wardrobe.

This house has a back garden which is currently home to half a dozen fruit trees, some of which are the island's favourite, Naspli trees. At the front of the garden, there is also a well.

At the back of the garden is a large 35 square metre room with a high ceiling. A stone staircase takes you on top of this room where you could have a roof garden. Once converted this would make a large family home in the sought after village of Nadur.

Found throughout the house, the patterned tiles are still in good condition and look beautiful.

The rooms in this home are large with great potential, but modernisation is required throughout to bring the home back to current standards.

The end of the hallway brings you to this beautiful door leading onto the courtyard and bearing the Maltese cross on its glass panes.

Looking back at the hallway door from the 30 square metre courtyard, you can begin to see what this home could become with a good conversion. 

Once up the external staircase, the first floor rooms can be accessed through this veranda which is also lined with patterned tiles.

At the back of the garden is a large 35 square metre room with a high ceiling which could be converted to an adjoining flatlet for guests or even additional bedroom space.

The bustling village of Nadur is one of the larger villages on the island and is the most populated. It can be found on the northeast side of the island, between the villages of Qala and Xaghra, on one of the island’s three hills. From here you can see most of Gozo, Malta and the rising sun in the mornings, explaining the rising sun on the emblem of Nadur.

Nadur’s church is dedicated to the saints Peter and Paul. Their feast, Mnarja, is celebrated on the 29th of June and is one of the most popular on the island. Nadur has picturesque valleys and very fertile lands, producing 70 percent of the island’s citrus fruits. The closest beaches are Ramla, Dahlet Qorrot and San Blas.

Nadur is scattered with watch towers, hence the word Nadur means “look out” in Arabic. In modern days Nadur is better known for its unique Carnival activities which pulls tourists from across the world.
