Unconverted House of Character in Quiet Area
This unconverted house of character in the village of Xewkija is not far from the beautiful bay of Mgarr ix-Xini. With 155 square metres of footprint, this property is not short of space, especially considering everything is currently just the ground floor level. The new owners could expand upwards to considerably increase the size of this property.
This house retains features such as arches, wooden beams, recesses and a manger. Currently it is a maze of interconnecting rooms, but with a conversion it could be transformed into a lovely family home or even an interesting guesthouse.
This first room would need to be opened and extended with a small part of land, belonging to this property, on the right side, making it a large open space. On the side of this room is an area partly outside and partly covered.
The manger is one of the original features.
The outside area runs the length of the property, past the first room, the second area (originally used for various animals, with beautiful arches and traditional beams) and finally past the last area, which was used as an external courtyard.
This 155 square metre property can skillfully be turned into a three-bedroom and two-bathroom house with spacious outside space and plenty of character.
This is the plan of its current ground-floor layout.

Xewkija, Gozo’s oldest village, is located between Ghajnsielem and the capital city. It is a quiet and laid-back village.
The village’s name is derived from the Maltese word “Xewk”, meaning "thistles", suggesting the area was once covered in them. Thistles are also Xewkija’s emblem.
Xewkija is known for its church, the Rotunda of Xewkija. It is the Seat of the Knights of the Order of St. John and was built from Maltese stone by local masons and craftsmen. It is not only the largest dome in Gozo, but one of the largest in the world, and this dome dominates the village.
Also interesting in Xewkija are the cart ruts coming from Borg Gharib, Mgarr ix-Xini, Ta' Cenc and Tas-Salvatur. Xewkija’s closet bay is Mgarr ix-Xini, one of Gozo’s most beautiful spots.
