Semi Detached Townhouse
This three-bedroom corner townhouse is found on a quiet street in the sought-after village of Xaghra. Whilst being in a quiet area it is only a five-minute walk from the village square. The groundfloor is a maze of interconnecting rooms full of character, while the first floor is a touch more simple and modern.
Stepping into the hallway which is a wide and large enough area to be used as a formal sitting area we can appreciate the traditional tiles which are still in good condition. Currently, this hallway has access to the 40 square metre garage which has its entrance on another street due to this house being a corner house.
Moving past the hallway we come to a maze of interconnecting rooms that are currently designed to be used as a kitchen, dining room and living room. These rooms can be left in their quirky design or be opened up into a large combined kitchen and dining area.
Also on the ground floor at the foot of the stairs is currently a large 20 square metre bedroom with the traditional style arches and tiles. This room would make a cosy living area.
Heading halfway up the stairs the area is joyfully lit up with a traditional sky blue wooden window with the Maltese cross. Fun fact, the Maltese cross was adopted by the knights of St John. The points of the cross represent the eight beatitudes and the four arms represent the four cardinal virtues: Temperance, Fortitude, Justice and Perseverance.
At the top of the stairs, we find the quaint hallway that overlooks the stairwell and leads past the two interconnecting bedrooms measuring 22 and 15 square metres, a bathroom and finally onto a terrace.
Just off of the kitchen, we find this courtyard which is home to a lemon and an orange tree. The courtyard leads to a small laundry room which is also connected to a 21 square metre cellar.

Xaghra, the island’s second largest village, is located centrally to the northeast side of the island. Xaghra is a lively village perched on one of Gozo’s three hills.
It is probably the most popular village among tourists due to its historical heritage, myths, lively square and sandy red beach, Ramla il-Hamra. Xaghra is one of the earliest inhabited parts of Gozo, being home to the Ggantija megalithic temples which date back to the year 3600BC.
Xaghra has fascinating caves such as Calypso’s cave, where according to myth, Calypso kept Odysseus as a `prisoner of love’ for seven years.
The village church is dedicated to Our Lady of Victories, locally known as il-Bambina, celebrated on the 8th of September, one of Gozo’s last celebrated feasts in the year.
