Large House of Character with Field
In the heart of Ghajnsielem is this currently one-floor house of character with traditional tiles and arches.
Both the home and the 360-square metre field are waiting for a new owner to breathe new life into them. The home is large, with traditional features and tall ceilings, and it will be an impressive home or guesthouse once converted.
Spread out over 240 square metres, this house has nine rooms interconnecting with an internal courtyard. From the internal courtyard, you can reach the roof by a stone staircase.
To the right of the entrance hallway is a 14 square metre formal sitting room.
The rooms at the back of the house lead to the back courtyard. Connected to the courtyard are two small rooms, the first measuring four square metres and the second measuring six square metres.
Most of the rooms are traditionally connected to the internal courtyard. Here you can see a wall that was more recently added to the home. This home would benefit from further modernisation, and it is of a size that would make a further investment into turning it beautiful worthwhile.
This area currently serves as the kitchen and communal space for the home. As seen here, light permeates the home through the courtyard and many windows, and the tall ceilings and arches contribute to the feeling of spaciousness.
This home has traditional tiles, beams, arches and kileb throughout.
Many years ago, this was somebody's sewing spot where they would have enjoyed the garden view.
A diamond in the rough, this home was once loved deeply and could be again when its new owners bring it up to modern standards.

Għajnsielem, meaning ‘spring of peace’, is a municipality on the southeastern coast and the youngest village on the island. It is the first village beyond the main harbour and has a population of just over 3,000 residents.
The Mgarr fishing village in Għajnsielem is the best spot for watching the sunrise over Comino or having a drink in the famous Gleneagles bar, a favourite haunt for the novelist A. J. Quinnell, best known for his novel ‘Man on Fire’.
Għajnsielem’s religious culture is strong, with over ten processions a year and its own real-life Bethlehem, which pulls in visitors every year from all over. Għajnsielem is home to Fort Chambray, built in the mid-18th century by the Order of Saint John. The closest swimming and diving spot to Ghajnsielem is Xatt L-ahmar, a secluded, rocky bay whose name means ‘red beach’.
