Property descriptionAn imposing house of character situated on a sought after area of Manikata, forming part of the tranquil and community lifestyle this quaint village offers, and enjoying country and sea-views from almost all levels. It was originally constructed around 150 years ago and being converted by a professional civil engineer who managed to retain all its original features and blend them well together with the character of the house and created focal points that help its new owners to guide them on a beautiful journey back in time. Upon entering this property one is welcomed on its spacious courtyard which is well decorated with herb planters, plants, and flower pots. The courtyard itself surrounds the habitat areas like the kitchen, living room, and dining room which allows ample natural light within the habitable area, throughout most hours of the day, especially in the afternoon. One of the best features we find on the ground floor level is the ancient technique of hand stone carving which was used directly on the settlement to form and create the living spaces nowadays, in my opinion, this is a very fascinating feature and rarely found within properties of the sort across the Maltese islands. On the same level, there is a street-level garage with two storages, interconnected with the house, and finally the utility room and guest bathroom. Going upstairs through a nice stone staircase, one reaches the sleeping quarters, 4 bedrooms in total, which the master is serviced with a very spacious En-suite, where a bathtub and a shower cubical are installed, a guest bathroom and finally a kitchenette on the same level, which can become handy as an alfresco or serving breakfast on the terrace. The sleeping quarters are surrounded by two spaces terraces which surround the courtyard found on the lower level. From this area, one can start to enjoy the country and sea-views Manikata has to offer. Finally, this house of character has a lovely private roof terrace which is ideal to be used as a social or entertaining area. Furthermore, the roof level offers a fourth bathroom which is ideal if in the future its new owners will plan to install a hot spring spa or a splash pool, a third kitchen to compliments the entertaining aspect and ample external space from where picturesque views can be admired and enjoyed. This charming property is being sold fully furnished with the decor matching the rustic style of the house, making it one of the most unique properties we find on the island! Viewings are highly recommended.
