Recently reduced in price from €280,640 to €255,000, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a period townhouse in a quiet area of Paola. It is minutes from Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, a Neolithic structure that has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Currently, the layout of the communal area is made up of a 21 square metre well-lit sitting room, which is connected to a dining room by way of an arch and the stairwell. From the dining area, you can access the main bathroom, the 7.3 square metre kitchen and the 15 square metre backyard.
The property retains its original stone features, traditional Maltese patterned floor tiles and high ceilings.
On the first floor, you will find three interconnected rooms and another bathroom. The first room you are in was previously used as a single bedroom.
It measures 13.75 square metres and is connected to the bathroom on this floor.
The main bedroom measures 21.65 square metres. It has a Maltese traditional wooden balcony. From here, you can get to the second staircase to access the roof.
A roof level, you will find a washroom and an area for summer BBQs or to transform into a lovely roof garden. There is also potential to build another floor here.
This home has a permit in hand for the spacious living room to be converted into a garage and accommodate a car.
It is would be lovely to see the future owners of this house transform it or lightly redecorate it and call it home.

Paola is a modern urban area on the hill overlooking the Grand Harbour, in the South Eastern Region of Malta. It is known for the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, its large parish church (the biggest church in the Maltese Islands), its square with shopping centres, the Good Friday procession, and its football club, Hibernians FC. Mariam Al-Batool Mosque, the only mosque in Malta, as well as an Islamic Cultural Centre, are found in Paola.
The Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a remarkably well-preserved series of Neolithic cave temples, discovered by construction workers in 1902. Thousands of artefacts dating back to 4000 BC were uncovered here, most famously the Sleeping Lady of Ħal Saflieni, replicas of which can be found in every tourist shop in Malta. The Hypogeum is open to the public, but it is recommended that tickets are purchased months in advance, as only 80 people are allowed in each day.
House prices in Paola are in the lower-middle range.
