Penthouse with Farm View
This three-bedroom penthouse in the old village of Qormi faces a lovely green area. Entering into this modern home, you are first in the open-plan kitchen/living/sitting room with a five-metre aperture leading to the 33-metre front terrace, where you can enjoy an evening meal watching the sunsets.
This penthouse offers expansive views of the green area in Qormi thanks to this lovely terrace. From the minute you walk into it, you can already picture al fresco dining, and barbeques on summer nights or the early morning coffee during a chilly morning before everybody else wakes up. Bliss!
This home is semi-finished to a high standard, with an optional two-car lock-up garage. The tiles are included in the purchase, and the new owners have the option of choosing the tiles they wish to have installed. The airspace is also optional, and all common parts are ready. It is just waiting for the future owners to decide the finishing touches.

Qormi is the second-largest town on the Islands. It has both residential and light industrial areas, but the town's core is still characterised by alleys and narrow streets. The town became the first place where imported goods were stored due to its position near the Grand Harbour.
Wheat was one of the staple imports and, over the years, windmills sprung up in the town and it soon developed a thriving bread-making industry. Qormi has been known as the centre of bread-making since the time of the Knights of St. John. They named it 'Casal Fornaro', the bakers' village, and it still is today.
The town is also known for its Easter processions, especially on Good Friday, when participants wear biblical costumes, and Easter Sunday, on which a procession is held with the tradition of running with the statue of Risen Christ in various roads in the parish.
