The 400 Year Old Converted Flour Mill
Hidden away down a little alleyway in the island's oldest village is one of the village's oldest buildings, a mill converted into a three-bedroom house. This house has recently been reduced in price from €385,000 to €365,000 and shares a neighbourhood with other quaint little old houses. There is also a farmer at the end of the street, well-known for his fresh eggs and delicious, traditional cheeselets.
This house welcomes you into its open-plan living/dining/kitchen area with its fantastic traditional arches, once home to a busy little mule. The kitchen is nicely fitted and all furniture matches the rustic character of this property.
On the ground floor just beyond the living area are a bathroom, the stairwell and a small yard.
Up to the first floor by the spiral staircase, we can find the landing, main bathroom and three bedrooms.
The large main bedroom comes with an en-suite and overlooks the quaint front alleyway.
On the roof, there is a washroom, a jacuzzi and plenty of space for converting into a roof garden. From the roof, there are town and distant country views.
Imagine kicking back in a jacuzzi with a glass of wine, surrounded by lush greenery and twinkling fairy lights amongst the old village rooftops.
This property would make a unique home or perhaps serve well as a rental investment.

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.
