Location: Lija

This is an outstanding three-storey double-fronted house of character in the quaint and much sought after village of Lija. The property boasts stunning views of the beautiful Lija church. The house forms a u-shape around the large central courtyard leading to a pool and a large mature garden, with plenty of citrus trees and two grapevines. On the ground floor huge retro arched glass doors run along the corridor leading to the courtyard and garden flooding the house with light. The property also has a games room, a large traditional mill room, dining room, a good-sized kitchen, pantry, toilet, and large storage area for pool furniture, as well as other storage areas. There is also a stunning backyard with enormous palm trees providing natural shading in the summer months. This yard connects to the dining room and pool and garden area. In the garden by the pool is a large two-storey garden shed. The property also has four wells and a reservoir. On the first floor is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, another two bedrooms with a shared bathroom, a study, TV room and library, a bright corridor overlooking the garden, and a spectacular sitting room, with very high ceilings and plenty of light. On the second floor are two more bedrooms and a bathroom. This separate flatlet leads on to an outdoor walkway overlooking the garden and leading to the back roof with a very large laundry room. The property has a main staircase leading up to the study and on to the second floor flatlet and a secondary staircase leading from the mill room on the ground floor to the sitting room on the first floor. A third staircase leads from the mill room down to the cellar. There are also two traditional spiral staircases. One leading from the kitchen to two of the bedrooms on the first floor and on up to the back roof and the laundry room. Another spiral staircase leads from the second floor bedrooms up to the front roof. This is a formidable property dating back to the 17th and 19th centuries. Must see property.
