Cospicua, Converted Town House ref 750108
A one-of-a-kind property. Wide fronted grand TOWNHOUSE on one of the best streets of this charming town full of history, forming part of the Cottonera. Having been restored by its present owners over the past 9 years, this labour of love is immaculately presented as great attention has been given in restoring it retaining, when possible, original features such as stone slab ceilings and wooden beams, flag stone floors & patterned tiles, 3 traditional Maltese balconies, an arched hallway adorned with fresco on the ceiling and much more. Upon entering, one is welcomed into a wide hallway that leads to a combined fully fitted kitchen and informal dining room, an informal living room, a guest bathroom and a formal dining room complete with a fully functional stone carved wood burning fireplace. Furthermore on the ground floor is a sizable courtyard together with a covered reading area which can be used all year round. A stone staircase takes one up to a study, a guest bedroom with its own en suite facilities as well as a drawing room and library, complete with high ceilings and a marble clad wood burning fireplace. On the second floor, one is welcomed to 2 further double bedrooms, each also with en suite facilities as well as the 'piano nobile' which was very carefully transformed into a master bedroom, also having its own en suite bathroom. What really stands out in this property is the roof terrace spanning over an area of almost 100 sqm incorporating a sun tanning deck, a BBQ area, a kitchenette perfect for serving the terrace as well as an infinity pool measuring ca.7m x 3m. Complementing this amazing property is a studio having a very large bedroom and a hamam-style walk-through bathroom which can be accessed either through the house or through its own separate entrance making it an ideal annex for guests or live-in help. Great attention has been given into bringing this property to its former glory and no penny has been spared from restoring the apertures, to excavating the arched cellar dating back to the early 1800s which is found beneath the kitchen and can house hundreds of wine bottles. This ready-to-move-into property is ideal for those who are house proud, love entertaining and seek a luxurious lifestyle.
