Located in one of Birgu’s prettiest and oldest streets, this corner period home interweaves past and present. Its renovation took several years to complete, and it was carried out with sensitivity due to the property’s historic significance. This home, whose history spans several centuries, showcases an exemplary restoration whereby its original character was carefully preserved and infused with contemporary interventions. The building is split over four levels, including a sizable basement cellar. All levels are accessible via an imposing old staircase lined with original wrought iron railings. Like its exterior, the interiors are characterized by multiple old features which have adorned the property for centuries. The property has two entrances, with the main entrance providing access to an entrance hall adorned with beautiful baroque features and flagstone flooring. On one side of the hall, you will find a combined living and dining room with high ceilings and marble flooring. Further in, there is a central courtyard which gives access to a separate kitchen. A large basement cellar is accessible through a hatch in the living area and would be ideal as a wine cellar, games room or an indoor pool. The entire first floor is taken up by the master bedroom which comes with three balconies, an office/study room, an en suite shower, and ample space for a sitting area. Further accommodation on the upper two levels consists of three more bedrooms, of which all have an en suite. Adding further value to this beautiful home is the overlying roof which is composed of two sizable terraces on different levels, with city views from the upper terrace capturing the true essence of picturesque Birgu.
