An iconic 4-bedroom traditional stone villa on the edge of the sea of Valletta and just a couple of minutes to restaurants and the Sliema ferry. This historic house sits at the foot of the capital city, Valletta, and is ideal for a relaxing holiday and for those wishing to explore the deep history if the city and island.
Character oozes from every stone. Surprisingly it dates to the knights of St John where it formed part of the bastions, later it served as a laboratory barrack during World War 2 for the English Navy. Although large, it stands inconspicuously tucked away on the foreshore of the Valletta Bastions.
Recently it has been transformed into a comfortable, stylish and yet modern, holiday home without compromising its authenticity. Indeed, it is a house full of interesting features that whisper of the past wherever you look. One can only wonder at the many lives and events that must have unfolded there over the centuries; however, attention was kept in preserving the historic aspect.
The marbled front doorway leads to an open sky-lit hall with arched openings leading to 3 entrances on each side and the front. The stairs make the house so dramatic being partially preserved to their original state, but most had to be replaced due to sea deterioration. Moreover, most of the walls have been left in their original form and texture, the typical Maltese limestone.
Immediately to the right, the arched doorway opens onto the kitchen/dining room. This lovely room is traversed by the typical wooden beams. The large bay windows open and light up the room. They offer a unique view of the stunning harbour and Sliema shore. The kitchen is fully equipped for easy cooking and for any kind of meal.
The dining area leads to the living area where the neutral coloured sofas and armchairs complement the honey coloured stone as does the modern parquet flooring which is a recent addition.
Furthermore, the entertainment area leads to 3 bedrooms, two on the same level and the 3rd one on the 1st floor accessible by a wooden staircase. On the ground floor there are 2 bedrooms one with a double bed with en-suite with a bathtub and the other with 3 single beds. Also, on the same floor there is another bathroom with shower enclosure as well.
On the 1st floor then there is another double bed with another single bed so it can sleep 3 people comfortably in beds. This bedroom comes with another en-suite with a shower cubicle. The low stone arches are visible in this bedroom and once again indicate its great age.
On the other side of the main entrance is another double bedroom with en-suite facilities and shower cubicle.
On the other side of the entrance there is the iconic part of this one-of-a -kind villa...the outdoor area. The area consists of a stunning pool measuring 6m by 4m surrounded by decking also on its side there is a Jacuzzi measuring of 2m by 2m. There is an outdoor table with chairs for 8 people and a gas BBQ for fresco nights to enjoy and relax the great views and sea breeze.
