Marsaxlokk

mxlokkMarsaxlokk is a charming village infamous for its traditional, brightly painted Luzzus, tasty fish restaurants and lively Sunday market and it is no wonder that it is highly visited by thousands of tourists every week. Located in the south-eastern part of Malta the village has around 3200 inhabitants and in the past, most of the inhabitants worked as fishermen. The name Marsaxlokk comes from the word “marsa” which means port and the word “xlokk” which means south in Maltese.

Malta Property Auctioneers have just been commissioned for the sale of a beautiful property in this village. If a quiet, peaceful lifestyle, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet with a selection of lovely eateries and tranquil country walks is your kind of thing, then this one may just be the perfect home for you.

Regretfully for sale by a foreign family returning back to UK the property is an elevated maisonette enjoying its own entrance with only one other overlying abode. The property has been finished in a contemporary style and to high standards and has a warm and welcoming feel right upon entry. As seen in the above picture, the main living area is bright and spacious, enjoys an open plan-concept yet still sectional and comprises a fitted kitchen with breakfast bar finished with a marble top. This lovely space leads onto a 35 foot back yard, covered by a sail, ideal for entertaining, pets or a perfect area for children to stretch their legs and waste some energy.

A bonus feature of this property is another spacious room at the back of the yard ideal as a games room, 4th bedroom/ nanny flat, dog house, studio/study etc.

The three bedrooms are all spacious (2 double 1 twin) and both the ensuite bathroom as well as the main bathroom are modern and spacious. The property is completed by an underlying lock up garage and is truly located on a quiet street yet only a minute away from the waterfront and picturesque bay.

The guide price on this property is affordable and very realistic, in fact a number of viewing are taking place this weekend. If you wish to know more just click here

Sliema – Tigne – Corner Fully furnished apartment

Isn’t it great when you get repeat business?

 

DSC_0009 (Small)  The property featured here is a property I sold to a most delightful British couple nine years ago. They where the first and only people to make use of this apartment. They bought it in a finished state from a well known local developer and put their own touch to the property by filling it with top quality furniture , such as Natuzzi sofas, Chigo Airconditioners, Italian bedrooms sets, etc.

Even though the property is 9 years old ( relatively little for a well built property), its condition is immaculate as it served mainly as a holiday home a few weeks each year, with its large terrace serving as the perfect place for a family bbq enjoying the seaviews.

Happy with the services of yours truly, both in terms of a smooth transaction back then as well as continuous support along the years, we at Pierre Faure Real Estate have been entrusted as exclusive agents for the regretful sale of this outstanding home away from home.

Located on a corner, in fact just one corner (15 meters) off the Qui Si Sana seafront, this bright and spacious apartment is being offered at €575,000 – lock, stock and barrel, in a ready to move into state and with a private parking space – a valuable asset for those who know a little bit about Tigne in Sliema!

All three bedrooms are equipped with double beds, and the main enjoys an ensuite shower. The kitchen, and I know this will please the older generation, is not open plan, but fitted separately into another room – There is the option to either open it up into the living / dining or even move it out completely to make way for a fourth double bedroom!

If you’re looking for a really nice apartment in Sliema, but just cant afford or do not wish to pay the premium for being on the seafront – the fact that this is the best option on the market right now is an absolute non-brainer.

Exquisite Detached Villa – Ready to move into – For sale by Auction

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.

NOW

 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.

A Successful 29th Property Auction

Malta Property Auctioneers Ltd. looking forward to their 30th Property Auction

DSC_0103 (Small)

Malta Property Auctioneers held their 29th quarterly Auction last Saturday 30th January at the Royal Malta yacht Club. Another successful and satisfying auction for all the participants, both vendors and buyers with almost €6 million worth of property sold under the hammer.

“This was another pleasing event for us and we are really looking forward to launching our milestone 30th Auction. Nine years ago today we opened our doors and where a little skeptical whether the idea would take off in Malta. Today we are the smart choice for buying and selling real estate. So much so, that other names in the local Real estate scene are trying to dive into this more targeted business model.
“It was only a matter of time before others followed suit. In fact others have already tried and failed. It is very typical of the Maltese to take a good idea and try to make it their own, to see who is successful and try to steal their recipe, but we have been in business for nine years and we have established our own market niche. Besides, who wants to drink Star Cola when the original Coca Cola is sitting on the same shelf ??? “ – remarked Stefan Consiglio, when questioned about the hearsay that other property auctioneers where about to launch.
“To be a successful property Auctioneer one needs to have extensive knowledge in the local real estate market, an auctioneers licence and a team of highly trained sales agents – Our experience in real estate goes back over 30 years through Pierre Faure Real Estate. The other ingredient for a successful auction, is a large database of highly qualified investors together with an aggressive marketing campaign – both items we have been harvesting and perfecting bit by bit over the last 9 years as auctioneers.
“We are a company that keeps up with current trends in marketing and are always looking into the newest marketing mediums to get the best possible exposure for your property with the intention to sell it to the highest bidder within a short period of time by creating an environment of urgency. Our business model is a win-win situation for all parties and the results are there to be seen . Moreover we are always willing to work together on a commission sharing basis with other agencies or brokers making our sales force even larger – this way we do not close a window of opportunity to anyone but rather open doors to all – pun intended.”
Malta Property Auctioneers’ exact 30th Auction date will be announced shortly but will be held around April/May. We are currently in the process of putting another attractive portfolio of properties together so for those willing to sell their property fast and efficiently – now is the time!
