Substantial and newly renovated character property tucked away on the fringes of Gozo's western-most village, in the desirable Birbuba hamlet of Gharb, this is an owner's project sitting on the very edge of an ODZ boundary. It benefits from views to the North West up to the Tal-Gordan lighthouse and to the West towards San Lawrenz's cliff-edges. Just a few steps away from the start of nature walks in unspoilt Gozitan valleys and countryside. The area is so peaceful, it is Mediterranean laid back living at its best.
The property is on a footprint of 770m2 with a total area of 980m2. It has 3 floors, with the ground floor surrounding a sheltered courtyard (and then steps leading to an underground cellar space) which then leads onto a massive deck and pool, itself abutting a soft area which remains to be planted with indigenous trees. The pool is newly built, will be tiled with mosaic and will have water jets.
The external ground floor area has 2 large bell-shaped wells, one of which has been connected to the rooftop reservoirs to have the option of using well water. All utilities are brand new and the water system is pressurised.
On entering the property, there is a kitchen to the left, with original arches and with a view of the approach to the house as well as to the courtyard. A Joinwell kitchen is being fitted. This leads through to an area which the owner intends turning into a quiet study, located adjacent to a guest wc (being newly tiled and fitted with Italian sanitary ware) and a large arched millroom. The millroom overlooks the courtyard through two windows and either leads to the courtyard itself and an external staircase to the first floor and large terrace, or through a secondary doorway to an internal staircase featuring reclaimed stone and wooden beams. All the ground floor (internally and externally) has been recently tiled with Spanish sourced flagstones.
The first floor features 6 renovated rooms, 3 of which were very recently plastered and pointed with original stonework (kileb), intended to be used as bedrooms. One of the bedrooms will take 2 single beds and has an en-suite bathroom overlooking the garden. The second room could be used as a smaller bedroom for kids with bunk beds, a cosy study, or a shabby chic cosy living room area. It is located right next to a small bathroom. The corridor leads to the largest bedroom, which will easily take a king size bed with lots of room to spare, and which is connected to a large bathroom with a standalone bath. All rooms on this floor are connected with a wide corridor, with large bay windows overlooking the courtyard and views to the North West, and leading to a very sunny terrace. The sun's overhead passage literally bathes the property in light until late afternoon.
A spiralling metal staircase leads to the second floor which has been newly built by the owner, giving the property a total of 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
On the second floor, two bedrooms (one of which is very large and enjoys a walk-in space), share a bathroom and each have their own large terrace with far reaching country views. All the property has been fitted with German manufactured and recently installed white PVC apertures making this 15-roomed property as spanking new as one would ever wish.
This is an owner's project in an area known for quiet living and will undoubtedly appeal to someone who is home-orientated, appreciates character property and is a nature lover. Properties of this size and location are rarely found.
There is still the opportunity to put personal finishing touches to this property. As an investment opportunity and potential for property appreciation in Gozo in the years to come, this is as good as it gets.
