Tiny Unconverted House of Character with Permits
With a footprint of 58 square metres, this unconverted house of character in Rabat is located at the end of a short alley. It is being sold with the potential for redesigning the property into a three-bedroom residence with an overlying full roof.
This house currently has a few rooms on the ground and first floors and a roof on the second floor.
It has traditional features such as exposed walls, wooden beams and stone slabs, known as 'xorok'.
The current owners have resketched plans and are waiting for approval from the Planning Authority to build an additional floor and carry out conversions.
The conversions would make this one of the few properties around the island with bedrooms at the lower level and the living area right at the top. A small area just beyond the entrance could be turned into a study or a sitting area. Further inside you will find the stairway with storage space and a bedroom on the left.
On the first floor, the plans show two double bedrooms, one on the right and the second one toward the front of the property. The second bedroom will have an en-suite and a small balcony overlooking the alley.
A spiral staircase leads you to the second floor, which is dedicated to the open-plan kitchen/dining/living room and the main bathroom. A small terrace on the front brings in light and light breezes. From here you can access the roof on the third level, which will have great views and could be an ideal outdoor entertainment space.
This property is being sold with plans and ready to be converted and transformed into a home by its future owners.

This large town on the outskirts of Mdina is a commercial centre and acts as a market to its large agricultural hinterland. It is also well established on the tourist map due to its archaeological and historical sites: the Roman Domus (Villa), St Paul’s and St Agatha’s Catacombs and several fine churches and monasteries. Biblical stories tell of St Paul residing in these catacombs when shipwrecked on Malta in approximately 60 AD.
Parts of Rabat were built on top of an ancient Roman city. The town was also used by Steven Spielberg as a location for some scenes in his film ‘Munich’. There are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants.
