ABOUT TOWN HOUSE, ZURRIEQ, MALTA
One of Malta’s oldest towns and steeped in history, Zurrieq is in the South West of Malta and has a population of approximately 12,000 people. It’s a traditional town, full of beautiful architecture and a fascinating heritage dating back more than 300 years. History lovers can look back further; even as far as the Bronze, Punic and Roman times as the town and surrounding countryside are peppered with tombs, pottery, catacombs and roman cart ruts. Zurrieq is unspoilt, with tree-lined main roads and twisting lanes of traditional walled houses. There’s a thriving and friendly community in this beautiful town. The scattered bars around the St Catherine’s Church, one of Malta’s most beautiful churches, are full of chattering friends and family, there are plenty of well-stocked independent shops and life moves at a slower pace in this charming Parish. But nowhere is far in Malta; the capital city Valletta is only 7km (4.5 miles) away, Sliema and St Julian’s just 8km and airport is just a short 5 minute drive. Access to the rest of the island is also excellent and with the near-complete construction of the Marsa fly-over, road connections will be at their best.
This enchanting house is situated on the Pjazza, the main square adjacent to the church. A resplendent and grand building with enormous potential for private living or many commercial uses.
Spacious bright and airy rooms with a high ceiling height Maltese tiled floors, large shuttered windows and white-washed walls make this property so versatile in its potential use.
It’s an exciting blank canvas; be it for a stunning state-of-the-art residential home, an impressive head office or a chic boutique hotel. Stepping through the majestic solid oak front doors, the grandeur of the property is immediately evident.
The palatial hall is adorned with beautifully sculptured walls and ceilings. There are two lateral rooms to your left and right and as you step further into the heart of the building, a courtyard ahead and kitchen to the right.
To the left a marbled sweeping staircase ascends to the next level with three bedrooms and a bathroom.
One of the bedrooms at this level was once used as a sala nobile; perfect for a luxurious drawing room, a grand hotel suite or a striking board room. All of the bedrooms are large enough to make into suites.
The two bedrooms at the front of the property enjoy traditional open Maltese balconies, the larger of the two rooms (the former sala nobile) also has a double length closed balcony.
At this level there is also a study and a smaller room that leads through to a ‘garigor’; a typical Maltese winding staircase that leads to the expansive roof terrace atop the property. The roof is also accessible on the top floor at the very top of the grand staircase.
The roof is a super vantage point for surrounding views but also perfect for watching the village festas (traditional church celebrations) as well as an idyllic spot for entertaining. This residence has been recently painted and had air-conditioning fitted into all rooms. There is also a large basement which spans the width of the ground floor.
This unique property offers a great deal to an investor and has an ideal space for an elevator. Potential to build a further floor is likely.
