Quirky and Authentic House of Character
This colourful and beautiful home is hidden away at the end of a narrow, winding alleyway in Victoria's oldest parts. Victoria is the island's capital, and this area known as Mandragg is the heart of the town, full of history. There is something captivating about these quiet, winding streets that have visitors from all over the world strolling up and down them, marvelling at the houses' characters and features, such as the balconies, niches, little doorways and knockers.
This 300-year-old house is uniquely laid out with its bedrooms and main bathroom downstairs, while the kitchen, dining room, and living room are upstairs. The quirkiness of this setup lends itself to the character of this home, and it's a breath of fresh air to walk through.
Stepping into the bright and spacious hallway, you set your eyes ahead on the open and bright stairwell, beautifully and naturally lit by the skylight. In the middle of the stairwell is an internal well, adding to the quirkiness of this unique home.
To the right of the entrance is the main bedroom with a door connecting to the main bathroom. To the left of the entrance is the second bedroom.
Beyond the bedrooms on the right side of the stairwell is the pleasant and colourful bathroom, with a free-standing bath which complements this house so well. This bathroom connects to the main bedroom.
The bright and wide stairwell goes up and around to the first floor where we first find the cosy living room with its own wood burner, connecting the combined kitchen/dining room. This communal area overlooks the front of the property and the alleyway.
Coming off of the dining area is the study and a spare toilet, or perhaps it could serve the new owner as a third bedroom with en-suite.
Back to the stairwell and up to the roof, what a delight. A roof terrace scattered with plants, a picnic table and a relaxing area. From up here, you can appreciate the tranquillity of this old city around you.

Victoria is Gozo’s capital city and the island’s heart, the largest and most populated area of Gozo. The name was chosen by the British government on the occasion of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. Previous to this it was known as Rabat.
The Cittadella, standing the tests of time, sits high and proud in Victoria and attracts hundreds of tourists a day from around the world. Victoria has peaceful gardens, numerous churches and chapels, bustling squares and is the main shopping district.
Unlike most towns, Victoria celebrates two feasts, Saint George and Santa Marija, probably the busiest feasts on the islands. These are popular with the Maltese as well as Gozitan locals.
