This enchanting villa oozes character from every stone. It dates back to the Knights of St John where it formed part of the bastions, further on, it served as a laboratory barrack during World War 2 for the English Navy. Although large, it stands inconspicuously tucked away on the foreshore of Valletta Bastions.
The marbled front doorway enters into an open, sky-lit hall with arched openings leading to three entrances on each side and the front. The stairs contribute a dramatic atmosphere to the home and the walls have been left in their original form and texture, the typical Maltese limestone.
Immediately to the right the arched doorway opens onto the kitchen and dining room. This lovely room is traversed by typical wooden beams. The large bay windows open and light up the room, they offer a unique view of the stunning harbour and Sliema shore. The kitchen is fully equipped for easy cooking and for any kind of meal.
The dining area leads to the living area where the neutral coloured sofas and armchairs complement the honey coloured stone, as does the modern parquet flooring which is a recent addition. Furthermore, the entertainment area leads to three bedrooms, two on the same level and the third one on the 1st floor accessible by a wooden staircase. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed with en-suite and the other with 2 single beds. Also on the same floor, there is another bathroom with shower closure as well.
On the first floor then there is a bedroom with a double bed and a single bed. Also, this bedroom comes with an en-suite with a shower cubicle.
