Exclusive Residences 2012 edition
Welcome to a collection of Malta and Gozo’s most spectacular residences, specifically selected for their superior design, luxury standards, comfort, breath-taking locations, typical local character and for that something out of the ordinary, making each of these properties unique in its own merits. It is not only in the 21st century that Malta’s proximity to Europe, climate and natural beauties captivate the interest of foreign nationals.
This is something that we have been doing since the dawn of mankind, from the very first years when the first tribesmen settled on our islands, founding what was to become an extraordinary society, one which is both intelligent and resourceful. Testament to our capabilities is our rich history, carrying remnants of the various colonies and empires that have visited our shores and with whom we cooperated over the ages. Our legacy is likewise reflected in our buildings and properties, an asset that the Maltese have always held at heart. Proof of this are the many palazzos, houses of character and farmhouses that adorn our towns and villages, dating back to the 18th, 17th, 16th and even earlier centuries, paying homage to the legacy of the Knights of St John.
The 19th and 20th century brought about the concept of urban development and the introduction of what we today refer to as town houses. In the latter half of the last century, the Maltese landscape took on a new dimension, with the emergence of community dwellings and apartments blocks, as well as terraced houses, villas and bungalows for the more affluent.
As the years rolled by design and architecture never stopped getting bolder and grander. Innovative building design and architectural concepts keep emerging to this very day, evident in Malta’s major avant-garde residential addresses, such as Tigne Point in Sliema, Portomaso in St Julians and the likes.
Through this compendium of Exclusive Residences, we have tried to bring you a taste of the island’s prime real estate presently on the market for sale and to let – catering for a selected demand for distinctive properties. Some of these residences have been designed and furnished by Malta’s top architectural firms and interior designers, as well as by our in-house ‘After Sales Division’. Exclusive Residences goes on to feature most of the island’s high profile developments, some of which are the recipients of world renowned awards.
Frank Salt Real Estate, together with subsidiary company Homes of Quality are proud to be exclusive agents of a good number of these properties.
