Selling For

Formerly part of an old monastery, this GRAND HISTORIC HOME is surely a delight for history aficionados. It enjoys extraordinary and uninterrupted views of the marina and the medieval city of Birgu from each floor. Having access from a charming stepped alley just off the seafront, this property is one of a handful that survived the bombings during WW2. In fact most of the architectural elements, structure and stonework on the facade are still intact and well preserved. With an acute understanding and respect for the building's history, the current owners ensured that new modifications complemented the original features with sensitivity. Upon entry you will get an instant taste of Maltese history. A beautiful vaulted entrance hall gives access to a yard and an imposing staircase that will take you to the upper levels. The first floor is composed of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All bedrooms feature beautiful arched ceilings and altogether span the width of the first floor. The master bedroom also has a well designed bathroom en-suite with a cast marble bathtub and a front balcony where you will enjoy breathtaking views. On the second floor there is an exquisite living room, guest toilet and a combined kitchen and dining. The living room is majestic. It spans the entire width of the property and has impressive double height ceilings with a mezzanine level artist's studio. This room captures amazing views through the doors that lead out to the balconies. On the other side there is a sleek and fully equipped kitchen featuring a retractable skylight which brings in plenty of natural light. Furthermore, at roof level there is a guest bedroom with a private shower room and a sizable terrace where you will be able to entertain guests or unwind in a perfect setting with a dramatic backdrop of yacht masts, steeples and the Mediterranean sea. Further adding value to this home is an adjacent duplex property with an independent access, currently used as an office. It is composed of a reception area on the ground floor and a further three rooms and a bathroom on the first floor. Several other original and noteworthy features such as arched ceilings can be found in this part of the property. This duplex can potentially provide a good rental return or be used as a private office. It can possibly be connected to the main property as well, thus offering potential to convert the entire building into a five bedroom home. All in all a truly unique historic home which stands out from anything else. What's more, future owners may have an opportunity to also acquire a boat with a berth right outside the window!

Location

Senglea is a fortified city in the east of Malta, mainly in the Grand Harbour area. It is one of the Three Cities, with the other two being Cospicua and Vittoriosa. With an area of just over half a square mile, it is Malta's smallest locality. It is also its most densely populated. In recent years, rehabilitation of the Cottonera Waterfront as a yacht marina has spurred a lot of interest from foreign expatriates and businessmen. This resulted in the renovation of various quaint and charming houses and a considerable appreciation of real estate in this city.
