House of Character - In the heart of the historic Collacchio district, in the city of Birgu , on the island of Malta sits Casa Collacchio, a beautifully restored historic residence in the medieval Knights Quarter (Collacchio) of Birgu in Malta. The home, initially built around 1480, has been extended and tastefully restored to discreetly include all the facilities needed for sumptuously comfortable 21st century living.Casa Collacchio is configured on six levels, for comfortable living and elegant entertaining. Its 872.4 square metre (9,390 square feet) footprint is comprised of 6 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms (plus 2 box bedrooms /en-suite sitting rooms), 5 bathrooms, 9 outdoor terraces & 8 utility rooms.At the heart of that fortress-island lies Birgu, a medieval maritime city of extraordinary beauty. The Knights called it La Città Vittoriosa after their victory over the Ottomans in the Great Siege of 1565. Within that walled city lies the Collacchio district soaked in history, in blood and religion, in knightly tradition and in culture. The Collacchio is that exclusive section of the historic city which the Knights Hospitaller reserved for their own military headquarters and private residences, long before Valletta, Malta's 16th Century capital city existed.
Old meets new. Classical meets contemporary.To call the house a mere abode would be a gross understatement in fact. From the location and positioning of the home, to the pastel colours chosen for the façade, accentuated by bright multi coloured geraniums you can easily tell that this is definitely not the run of the mill when it comes to Maltese houses.The house, is a palace it is. But not in the sense of the often garish and overly ornate baroque and rococo ambiances generally associated with palaces.This is a place which oozes with contemporary grandeur. Actually the word which comes to mind is taste, with more than a touch of class too. The Palazzo is situated in the central part of the island aimed at families that works from home with private spaces for guests, domestic offices, servant quarters and ample entertainment areas with the latest technology.Fully restored to its own glory, this Palazzo has all the modern amenities including home automation, wireless internet, central heating, air conditioning, outdoor pool and lots more.The first two rooms to greet visitors are the working studios. Here functionality and fun meet and literally embrace. Moving into the heart of their home, the eye quickly travels along a spacious corridor and settles on an open space with thick transparent glass flooring. This beautifully roofed courtyard is a quasi-cloister which doubles up as a mini art-gallery. Interestingly, this space transforms into a modest dancing-floor, which can sustain the weight of some 60 people.This beautifully roofed courtyard is a quasi-cloister which doubles up as a mini art-gallery. Interestingly, this space transforms into a modest dancing-floor, which can sustain the weight of some 60 people.Natural light abounds, yet it is suffused by the UV-filtering skylight, and one can only imagine the gorgeous atmosphere this place possesses at night.The house is moreover divided into segments, the formal entertaining part on the ground floor comprises a gorgeous wet bar/small sitting room alongside a formal dining room, off of which a children s room was planned for their younger guests. Upstairs however, a much larger sitting room and adjacent library clad with antiques and contemporary pieces alike, establish a true note of excellence the likes of which are only seen in historic house museums.The kitchen on the other hand, is a spectacle a haven for any gadget or electric appliance connoisseur. Although it is the room where function prevails, form has definitely not been compromised or sacrificed - even a top chef would have a field trip given the run of such a space.Their home also boasts an elevator, an ample basement, a sauna, a wine-cellar, a meditation room, walk-in closets and a wonderfully tranquil conservatory-cum-dining area.The yard is dominated by a lush green garden, complete with a green mosaic swimming-pool, just the right garden furniture and standing lamps all of which merge perfectly into the natural surroundings whilst simultaneously complementing the overall ambience.All the while the A to Z of the household ensures complete security, child friendliness, and energy efficiency, without compromising on the entertainment, fun, style and cutting-edge design.
Nestled away in a very tranquil area of Gharghur's old village core and only accessible by a small alley is this unique gem of an old mill house. Oozing with character and retaining its old historical features, this mill house has been lived in by a local family through the years. Few interventions to modernise the property have been carried out however these have been done in a way to retain the original features and are largely uninvasive and reversible. The property is divided into the mature garden which also features a pool and deck area and the building itself which consists of a central mill tower rising four storeys above the ground floor and the house spread over two floors with multiple rooms of various sizes on each floor. The variety of rooms easily allow for a high degree of flexibility with conversion and modernization in mind. One to view, definitely
