Property descriptionOne of a kind property full of traditional features found in our old Maltese Houses of Character. Meticulously converted with care and respect for the heritage details and located in an alley, close to the church in Zurrieq in a UCA area, this property dates back to 1724. Its layout consists of a ‘remissa’ as the entrance into the property which could also be used as a carport. This leads you to a large private courtyard with a large garden patch of approximately 117sqm. Adjacent to the courtyard you have a guest W.C. and up an outdoor staircase you can find a large storage room. As you enter through the courtyard and into the main property you have a TV/living room with a wood-burning fireplace and further into the dining room with a window into another yard. To the right of this space, you have a good-sized separate kitchen with a door leading you into the other spacious yard. As this side of the property is in an L-shaped form, from the kitchen, a hallway leads you to the spacious main bathroom, a large bedroom and an interconnecting single bedroom with a large aperture to the central courtyard. If you go back to where we started and therefore the TV/living room, to the left of this space the property consists of a hallway and a very large stunning vaulted mill room which is 16 courses high. This room, full of features of a typical mill room, is simply amazing and impressive, to say the least. Further, towards the back of the property, you have another double bedroom and access to a beautiful mature garden measuring approximately 300sqm and featuring a war shelter, which one can utilise as a cellar. The property is barely overlooked and you have fruit trees of all kinds, perfect for gardening enthusiasts. Another section of the house, which is accessed from the hallway as well as from the mill room consists of an entrance hall with a cloakroom/storage, an ante-room and to its left another bedroom. From the ante-room, a (‘garigor’) leads you up to a large bedroom upstairs with a sizeable bathroom and access to a very large terrace overlooking the courtyard, garden and with views of the Zurrieq church. Needless to say the abundance of traditional features such as ‘xorok’, ‘xorok tal-qasba’, ‘kileb’, ‘manger’, arches and features in the mill room, such as stone animal ties, ‘saljaturi’ and much more, throughout the entire home.
