House of Character With Original Features
This pretty house of character can be found in Attard within an Urban Conservation Area. It's in a very quiet street, close to all amenities, cafes and restaurants.
With many of its original medieval architectural features, this house of character has great potential as a wonderful family home.
Upon entering the home, there is a wide stone archway which leads onto a living area and an open-plan kitchen/dining area.
Many of the original features have still been retained such as the stone beams 'xorok' and 'kileb', which give an airy and cooling feel to the rooms.
Moving into the open-plan kitchen/dining area, there is plenty of storage space and ample room to sit down for a family meal or entertain friends.
Arguably the most unique aspect of Maltese architecture, the limestone walls in this property are beautifully thick, helping to both trap heat in the winter and keep it cool during the summer months.
There are three bedrooms in this property altogether.
The outdoor space in this property consists of two roof terraces (sold with airspace) that flank the top bedroom, which is currently being used as a living room.
There is also a small cellar space that comes with the home, a box room and a washroom. The owner is also willing to remove furniture should the home seeker not want it. Additionally, existing plans are available to view should they wish to see them.

Attard is one of the so-called Three Villages, along with neighbouring Lija and Balzan. Many wealthy families built summer residences here in the early years of the 20th century, and the Three Villages are still considered an exclusive urban area.
Attard today is characterised by large villas and gardens, the most impressive of which is San Anton Palace built by Grand Master Antoine de Paule in the late 16th century. It is now the official residence of the President of Malta and is used for state functions. The gardens, open to the public, are a baroque masterpiece and oasis of green and calm. Nearby is the Ta' Qali Crafts Village, located on the old wartime airfield, and the National Stadium.
House prices in Attard are in the upper middle range, especially those in the tranquil villa area or near the green areas.
