Beautifully Restored Historic Palazzo
A unique opportunity to acquire an historic and restored Palazzo built by the Knights of the Order of St. John in 1589. Completely detached and surrounded by gardens and orchards, this 16th Century majestic Palace provides an oasis of tranquility in one of the oldest central villages of Malta.
Presently configured as a 4-bedroom residence, it will easily accommodate double the number, if necessary. All the rooms, including the 5 bathrooms, huge sala nobile, chapel, snooker room, library, various sitting and dining rooms, and kitchen surround a huge internal courtyard. Many of the rooms, enclosed in metre-thick walls, contain wood burning fireplaces and a B&O system plays music throughout. A 100-step stone spiral staircase, with traditional birth rooms at intervals, leads up to a turret affording views of the island whereas a grand staircase leads to the upper floors from the outside.
Besides the sala nobile and dining room, there are several outdoor areas such as terraces overlooking the orchard, the courtyard with surrounding vaulted ceilings and vast arches as well as the ample pool deck area, which are all ideal for entertaining. The gardens, fed with modern irrigation systems, contain over 300 established fruit trees as well as fountains, wells and sculptures. A large and deep, marble swimming pool, separate staff quarters with own separate entrance, as well as a 7-car interconnecting garage complement the property.
