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.

A Successful 29th Property Auction

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

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!

Attard Townhouse facade

The Perfect blend of Old & New – House of Character in Attard, Malta

When  we at Pierre Faure Real Estate sold this house of character 3 years ago, it was in an awful dilapidated mess. We often took clients that wouldn’t even walk through the front door in fear of the ceiling collapsing on their heads. One particular client, however, who was tired of trying to find a home in Malta with a good finish at a fair price, decided that maybe a fixer-upper was the right choice of property for him.

The features the Malta property had , or at least those that could be seen to the inexperienced eye, where a lovely courtyard leading onto a decent size (approx 80 sqm) garden. Apart from that, nothing in particular stood out, or at least, not in the mess and dust that engulfed the run down property. But the location was good, tucked away in a rather wide alley in one of the most sought after and quiet villages of Attard. After some convincing that the house truly had potential to be something outstanding, the sale was made.

3 years later, the owner contacted me to view his project – As I reached the address, I actually thought I was in the wrong place. The facade, now a typical townhouse totally restored to its former beauty and glory, was already unrecognizable. I couldn’t wait to get inside.

As soon as I entered the front door, I was absolutely gobsmacked. The conversion, done by a group of renowned local professionals was nothing but awe-some. I felt like I had never been to this location before. The entrance hall, with its magnificent high ceiling was overwhelmingly welcoming. The first room, one which i had myself explained will one day host a lovely TV room, was converted into the most elegant formal dining room. The central courtyard was gone and replacing it now is the most grand , bright and spacious , double height living room with more than enough space for a study, library and piano. Overlying this massive room is now the main bedroom, equally grand , bright and spacious with its own walk in closet and en-suite bathrooms as well as ample storage space.

The project itself, unearthed some amazing features, namely a carved stone dating back to the 1700’s and moreover, a lovely arched cellar which underlies half of the well landscaped garden – a perfect place to store wine.

What amazed me most about the house however, is the combination of the old walls and replica patterned tiles , wooden beams and arched doorways mixed with flat wallpapered walls, as well as the mix of tones and materials from granite to hardwood floors and an abundance of different textures all blending well and finished to the highest levels. The bathrooms, 3 in total are of topmost quality and the house enjoys loads of little nooks ideal for storage, one of which is your typical “birth room”. the apertures are large and flood the typical Maltese house with light

“This place was top notch…and I wanted it on my books….”

3 months of persuasion down the line and the property is now listed exclusively for sale by auction with Malta Property Auctioneers with a Guide Price of €545,000 to €575,000. A very attractive guide price for a family home of this caliber especially with respect to its size, location, outside space, and standard of finish.
