Moving house is very often the most stressful time in our lives, however, refurbishing a 1970’s villa is way more stressful than that, especially on an island renowned for slow, undependable workers. Chasing workmen, tile-layers, suppliers and acting as project manager is no easy task especially whilst simultaneously juggling a full time job plus wife and kids. For this reason, its not often that a refurbished villa comes on the market at a young stage of the property’s new life, especially one that has been painstakingly restored and finished to very high standards.
Malta Property Auctioneers are very proud to be appointed as exclusive agents for this recently refurbished detached villa with pool in the sought after area of Monte Rosa Gardens in Mensija (l/o San Gwann).
When the current owner purchased the property some 30 months ago, there was very little to please the eye. Dated apertures, chipped floor tiles, a falling apart kitchen and a layout not very fitting for today’s lifestyle. With a vivid imagination the owner decided to take on a project to give this property the new life it deserves. Several months, hundreds of hours of hard work, and plenty of arguments (with both wife and workers) later, and the property is unrecognizable.
Standing outside the property one immediately notices that the property has been completely re-plastered and painted, the apertures have all been changed to top quality double glazing , the main door restored to new life and the surrounding gardens re-tiled as well as the use of astro-turf to create a perfect play area for the kids. The inside has been equally cared for – the property, which was gutted to its innermost skeleton is now finished to perfect detail using a wonderful mix of textures and materials. Underfloor heating as well as air-conditioning throughout are only some of the extras included. The property boasts two living areas (one for the adults and one for the kids), a private office or study, a wonderful kitchen (see pic above) and dining area all leading onto the pool, bar and deck/lounge area, which is an incredibly private space.
An extension has been built to make space for a 4th double bedroom (2 of which are ensuite and main enjoying a seriously nice sized walk-in wardobe).
The guide price for this property has been set at €695,000 – €735,000 which is incredible value for all the property has to offer. There is very little on the market that compares to this outstanding fully detached home. Viewings have already started and we expect many more before auction day. If you are looking for that ideal family home, with no expenses spared, ready to move into and in a nice villa area with no overlooking apartments around, I suggest you make that call to take a look before its too late.
