First-Floor Apartment with Stunning Finishes
With two main parishes, the town of Qormi has an abundance of history and is renowned for making the best Maltese bread.
This beautiful first-floor apartment is being sold partly furnished in a block of only three units. A lot of hard work has gone into this home to make it comfortable and aesthetically pleasing and the current family are reluctantly leaving it to upsize, due to a brand new addition to their family. They are quoted as saying:
"It is so convenient for everyday life as it is so central to everything".
The open-plan kitchen/living/sitting area, which has an aperture leading to a front balcony, is a particular favourite:
"We spend a lot of time here and have so many memories".
It is clear that the finishes in this property are of a high standard. The ceilings are neatly designed with bulkheads that section the different areas of this impressive open-plan area.
The sitting room has a large, comfortable L-shaped sofa, whilst the kitchen has a lot of surface space, a highlight to anyone who enjoys cooking. It also incorporates a kitchen island as well as a breakfast table.
The dining area has an impressive backdrop of Valletta and a TV incorporated in the gypsum divider that partially sections off the dining area from the sitting room.
The main bathroom can be found just off the open-plan area with a very modern feel to it.
Moving away from the open-plan, there is a corridor that leads to the sleeping quarters and an internal yard.
Gypsum has been utilised here as well, along with different light fittings, to make this area of the home as inviting as possible.
The internal yard has also been diligently finished. This space allows light and air through the apartment, including the kitchen, main bedroom and the en-suite.
Halfway down the corridor, there is the spacious main bedroom, complete with stunning walnut furniture, a gypsum ceiling with integrated lighting and an en-suite bathroom.
The second bedroom is colourfully decorated and accommodates two beds for the children in the current family.
The last room at the end of the corridor could be a third bedroom but is currently functioning as a study. Once again, you can find solid, walnut furniture providing ample storage and an air conditioning unit.
At the far end of the apartment is the backyard, which is spacious enough to hold BBQ's in summertime and include a small paddling pool for children to enjoy. It includes a closed section with a washing machine and a tumble dryer. It is safe to say that this apartment is not at all short of storage space.
A property with this much character and level of finishes is a rare find and, as stated by the family: "a lot of love and sacrifice" has gone into making this apartment a home, so they are hoping to find new owners who will cherish it as much as they do. An optional two-car garage, complete with water and electricity services installed, is available in the same block.

Qormi is the second-largest town on the Islands. It has both residential and light industrial areas, but the town's core is still characterised by alleys and narrow streets. The town became the first place where imported goods were stored due to its position near the Grand Harbour.
Wheat was one of the staple imports and, over the years, windmills sprung up in the town and it soon developed a thriving bread-making industry. Qormi has been known as the centre of bread-making since the time of the Knights of St. John. They named it 'Casal Fornaro', the bakers' village, and it still is today.
The town is also known for its Easter processions, especially on Good Friday, when participants wear biblical costumes, and Easter Sunday, on which a procession is held with the tradition of running with the statue of Risen Christ in various roads in the parish.
