Tigne Point, Portomaso, Madliena, Fort Cambridge and the Sliema seafront are a few places that come to mind when people think of exclusive addresses in Malta. However, one of Malta’s most visited tourist attractions, the fortified and silent city of Mdina could easily be top of the list. The problem is that the stock of real estate in Mdina is extremely limited and very little ever comes on the open market as they are usually passed on from parents to children for years and years. One must keep in mind that Mdina is almost 4000 years ago and from its first years it was mainly built and inhabited by Noble families. – hence the nickname Citta Notabile!
For this reason, we at Malta Property Auctioneers are very excited to have been commissioned for the sale of No.3, Triq Mesquita, Mdina – For those who know Mdina well, Mesquita street enjoys the beautiful Mesquita square (pictured below), a most beautiful and tranquil pjazza housing the Mdina experience.
Mdina is still fully inhabited and what surprises most visitors is the silence inside its walls especially at night. On an island stuffed to the brim with vehicles and traffic, the fact that cars aren’t usually allowed to get in is a major added bonus. Mdina can offer the discerning client a lifestyle like no other with tranquility and safety galore coupled with a great selection of cafes, tearooms, winebars and restaurants all within a 2 minute walk.
So what about this property? – While I am still trying to gather the history and date of this particular house, it doesn’t seem to be as old as some other properties within the walls. We are not talking a 400 year old house with flaky walls and arched ceilings surrounding a central courtyard. In fact the style is more reminiscent of your typical Sliema townhouse. A double door entry (anti-porta) welcomes you into a lovely hallway. Upon entering one will immediately notice that even though the house needs some T.L.C, or should I say modernizing, the condition is immaculate. All the original features such as an elegant staircase, beautiful and diverse patterned tiles in all the rooms, perfect high ceilings held up by great quality wooden beams, all the original wooden apertures including shutters as well as your typical “Maltese” balcony are all extremely well kept and hardly need any attention.
The layout is very accommodating. Off the hallway are 2 large rooms, ideal as living and dining. Another large room will make the perfect kitchen/breakfast with pantry and guest WC. All rooms lead onto a good sized back yard and provide ample light to the property. Upstairs are 2 large bedroom and a bathroom. The roof terrace is begging to be converted into a lovely roof garden overlooking a chapel cupola and with views of all the Mdina churches.
With minimal expense this property can be upgraded into a truly outstanding property in Malta, in a unique location and environment,
The property will be auctioned at our 31st Property Auction to be held in October 2016. The guide price is €625,000 to €675,000 and more detailed info and pictures can be found here.
