This lovely farmhouse, dating back hundreds of years lies at the heart of the old town of Rabat (Victoria) with its network of alleyways. It is abundant with old world character and is the perfect place for someone who wishes to be centrally located as everything, from shops to bars and restaurants are within a short walk.
The property has several entrances from different alleys. On the ground floor there are two spacious interconnected rooms one being used as the living room, the other a kitchen and dining room. The architecture of the arches is fascinating as they interlock a massive central arch from both rooms. In the dining room there is also an internal well which is always full of fresh water, interlinked with other wells in the old quarter, which are likely spring fed.
Although an old property the kitchen is light courtesy of a large skylight.
Stone steps lead up to a pretty private courtyard with space for a table and chairs. At this level there are two bedrooms, one en-suite. The en-suite bedroom is a classic example of the very oldest farmhouse building style using xorok and kileb stone slabs to form the ceiling. A few steps up from the courtyard lead to a family bathroom with a bath, and also used to house the washing machine.
Further steps lead up to the pretty roof terrace full of green plants, a perfect place to unwind and sit in the cool breeze. At this level is the third bedroom, with useful storage spaces.
The farmhouse is mostly detached, with apertures on three sides, giving it both good light and ventilation. Whilst having a compact footprint, the property offers character in abundance and would be equally suitable as a main home or a holiday home and would also make a perfect investment as a rental property
