The House: Accommodation includes three large double bedrooms (two en-suite), one single bedroom and two shower rooms. Living areas include a large sitting room and ‘matching’ dining room, each with arched ceilings. The study/library has floor-to-ceiling wooden bookshelves and walk-in closets on two levels, and could easily be converted into a fifth bedroom, retaining the library and closets. The 1995-8 renovation replaced all plumbing and electrical systems, with new tiling throughout and all internal walls (except the study) taken back to the original old, hard stone indigenous to Ta’ Cenc.
The Courtyard, Terraces, Garden and Pool: Central courtyard and large circa 80 sqm upper terrace – perfect for entertaining – overlooks a large, sheltered and well-established garden, with a stone-and-timber pagoda and round table and benches at the far end. Garden is surrounded by traditional rubble walls over 2 metres high. Pool (11 metres by 6 metres, 2.5 metres at deep end), together with a large poolroom/gym with shower/toilet and cupboards for beach & pool equipment. Main garden includes over 20 trees and many bushes, shrubs and plants, laid out with paving stones and wrought iron gates between sections. Well-developed trees block neighbours’ line of sight into property, and the sunken garden and pool and high rubble walls add to our almost complete privacy.
The stables and paddock: New (1997) stable block with 2 connected horse stalls (automatic waterers, mangers, etc.) with adjoining feed room, and grooming areas with a smooth concrete floor (easily converted to 3 stables). Large paddock (approx. 55 metres by 16 metres) for horse and dog exercise, with 4-foot fenced dressage ring and wooden shelter. Rubble walls surround the paddock; circa 2 metres metal security gate to rear driveway and exit.
Access: House has own 20 metre front lane for private parking that it shares with two neighbours, leading off the quiet Ta’ Cenc Street. Very little through traffic ensures this a quiet spot: even the front door is hidden from the street. Additional access to the paddock area is from the back of the property via own gate and driveway coming off Dun Luqa Street, providing space to park additional cars and a boat. Rear drive/access could be converted into main access with automatic gates, additional parking area, etc.
