L-Shaped 1606 House of Character
This unconverted house of character is in the heart of Rabat, the third most popular town after Valletta and Mdina. The mixture of architectural styles and the use of traditional building materials have combined to produce an elegant suburb to the walled city of Mdina.
This home has an area of 316 square metres and, upon entering, you will find a long entrance hall that could be utilised as a three to four car garage.
Surrounded by seven rooms, a large courtyard follows the entrance hall.
Additionally, a decent-sized backyard occupies the back of this property, which dates back to 1606 AD.
Moving up to the first floor via the limestone stairs, there are seven more rooms. At this level, you can also head outside onto two terraces.
Two rooms can be found at the front of the house on the second floor and there is easy access to the private roof space. The roof could also be converted for various different uses and there is the potential for solar panels.
A wonderful old property with so much potential, this building could be used for many things. Perhaps a large family home, a cosy boutique hotel, an event venue or even a restaurant.

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.
