Rabat Situated in the historically rich area of Rabat, in the old village core right by the St Agatha and St Paul's Catacombs, this lovely and imposing house is full of features behind it's beautiful and unspoilt facade, complete with niche and saint's statue. Entrance on to hallway, very large sitting room, living area, dining room, separate kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor. Much of this area is covered in traditional patterned tiles. Traditional and wide stone staircase leads up to the first floor, where no less than four bedrooms and bathroom may be found, two of which are of truly grand proportions. Some rooms still have the original flagstone flooring, so often poorly imitated nowadays. A spiral stone staircase then leads up to the large, open roof. At the rear of the house is a sizeable back yard, a mature garden with fruit trees, and a similarly sizeable room at the rear of it, built in the same period. It is estimated that the yard and garden are around 24m (80') deep. There is a blocked-off cellar accessible from the yard, and also a registered source of groundwater, a "spiera" - a deep well into which groundwater that percolated through the rocks, accumulated and was collected. A "remissa" entrance - would previously be where one "parked" their horse and cart - offers access to what would now more likely be used as a one/two car garage. Throughout the house, typical features such as wooden beams and very high stone slab ceilings abound, and the garden will become a veritable gem once tended to. A very "complete" residence that will make an amazing home once restored. Ref:1638-4o
