Luxury Living in Magnificent Malta
This charming old house is built on two levels. On the ground floor level, there is an entrance into a lovely internal courtyard which leads onto a verandah overlooking the verdant valley of Xlendi. On the right, one steps into a large room with a fireplace which leads onto another large bedroom and both of which are below street level. The latter leads onto yet another bedroom which opens onto the verandah overlying Xlendi Valley. Both bedrooms have separate bathrooms. In bygone days, these rooms were used by the owners so as to welcome the more formal guest. From the courtyard a narrow flight of steps leads down to the cellar. On the left of the entrance a closed staircase leads one to the rooms upstairs. Four large rooms, consisting of two bedrooms, a large hall (sala) which accommodates the living areas and a combined kitchen and dining, open onto south facing arched verandah likewise overlooking Xlendi Valley. Another bathroom compliments the two bedrooms. The house is around three hundred years old and it most probably belonged to a noble local gentry. This is evidenced by the fact that in one of the upstairs rooms, which nowadays is known as "is-Sala" meaning big room, there was a chapel. In olden times, well off people used to have a private chapel in their homes where the local priest would come and celebrate daily Mass. A lovely garden, complete with a swimming pool further compliments this lovely property. Moreover, there is proof that the area in which this property is situated was favoured by wealthy people so much so that in the Lunzjata Valley, which is a little distance away, there still exists a house which rumour has it, was the hunting lodge of a Grand Master of the Order of Saint John. In fact, it is still known as "ld-Dar tas-Sultan" meaning the "Kings House".
