Unconverted House of Character

In the sought after village of Xaghra we find this hidden gem.

A house that takes you back in time like a time machine, back to the days where the animals had more rooms than the owners and the cellar where they made wine was bigger than all the living areas put together.

When we visited for photos, we marveled at the traditional tiles, arches, beams and garden area with its own well, bore hole and water reservoir. 

As we enter and walk down the entrance hall, we step out into this area, the traditional courtyard mostly shaded with pomegranate trees. On the right is the borehole and to the left is this little room with a reservoir. Past this room are the stairs leading to the sleeping quarters and other rooms, while beyond the stairs we can wander through the garden to the former wine cellar and animal pens.

This area, once used for making and storing wine, measures 20 square metres with its own street-level entrance. It could be converted into a garage, stunning lounge area or... why not restore it to its former glory and have your own wine cellar?

The garden is split into two parts by a stone wall. The first part forms part of the courtyard, while the second part runs the width of the house and extends eight metres beyond this cactus-draped wall, then round to the left side of the house.

Although the two bedrooms are currently connected, they each have their own entrance. This main bedroom, which was once an exquisitely decorated bedroom with hand-painted borders, traditional tiles and a cast iron bed, is just waiting to be restored. It has a window overlooking the side garden and a terrace to the left.

This house is teeming with character and potential. Once converted it will make a stunning and unique home to be proud of.
