700.0 sqm (7534.7 sqft)
A rare to find, imposing, unconverted, Palazzino situated in the prestigious highly residential village of Lija, a small village which is located in the centre of the island. Dating back to the 1600’s, this property is steeped in history and revolves around a grand central courtyard with a stone fountain in the middle, evoking memories of days gone past when time stood still. Amid tranquil surroundings and other beautifully restored period residences, this 400 year old property, which is accessible from two separate entrances, sits on a footprint of 1110sqm and is graced with two lavish gardens with ample space for a pool and as stated, a large, central, private courtyard with all the rooms surrounding it. Retaining many traditional features including flagstones and patterned tiles, this bright property enjoys six spacious rooms on the ground floor including a lovely mill room with arched ceilings together with a birth room, two wells, two very large reservoirs and two cellars. Further complementing this residence is a ‘Sala Nobile’ on the upper floor, four double bedrooms, bathroom and a further terrace, all overlooking the central courtyard. Once stepping onto the roof, listening to the church bells pealing and the birds chirping from the numerous fruit trees found in the gardens below, and restoring it to its former glory will certainly lend this gem of a property, an aura of its own.
