Balzan Town House
Situated in the tranquil village core of Balzan (covered by UCA), one finds this one-of-a-kind, spacious, semi-detached, triple-fronted TOWN HOUSE. The property consists of a stunning hallway which opens up into an imposing double-height foyer that in turn leads to a combined formal lounge/dining room and hosts an enchanting staircase leading to the first floor. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a study and a piano room (both of which can easily be converted to bedrooms), a guest toilet and box room and a massive open-plan kitchen/breakfast room, living room and casual dining area situated in a conservatory overlooking a beautiful garden/deck area with large pool and well. The pool is serviced by a pool room and a separate, basement-level toilet and shower/changing room. The basement also includes a storeroom and leads on to an interconnecting 4-car garage.
The first floor hosts a very large master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom, and two other large double bedrooms served with their own bathrooms. These lead on to a terrace that in turn overlooks the pool area and also leads to a traditional stone spiral staircase (garigor), on to the roof where one finds 28 photo voltaic panels and an additional two solar water heater panels. On the first floor one also finds a very handy storage attic and a generously sized washroom leading on to another large terrace.
This property is also equipped with a burglar alarm, fully air conditioned and ready to move into. It has been recently converted to very high standards and designed to combine modern comfort and eclectic décor without compromising the signature elegance of a Maltese townhouse.
The Three Villages
Attard, Balzan and Lija are popularly known as The Three Villages because of the many characteristic features they have in common.
Balzan, though relatively a small village, has an interesting history going back to the 14th Century. In the 16th century most of the dwelling houses were farmhouses. In 1655 Balzan was erected a separate parish from the larger parish Birkirkara of which it previously formed part. During the 17th and 18th centuries wealthy noble families started to settle in Balzan, building large houses in the older part of the village. Today, Balzan still retains the characteristics of a typical Maltese village with narrow winding streets and blind alleys that can still be seen in the older part and where one can admire the vernacular architecture.
