The main entrance opens into the spacious bright and airy central courtyard, with a newly designed marble floor, a solitary palm tree, the original well and a lift to all floors.
A separate stairway takes you down to the full basement which has been classically transformed into a stunning heated indoor swimming pool area with several other rooms currently used as washrooms, laundry, wine cellar and changing rooms.
What were once ground-floor staff areas are now an Orientalist sitting room, and a square pale-blue breakfast room.
The main rooms, with windows overlooking the street, are reached by the grand staircase carved of local limestone. One flight up lies the airy library, often used as an office for meetings
The third-floor landing opens to the main living room on the right and the dining room on the left. Once the banqueting salon, the living room is flooded with light from the traditional Maltese balconies that puncture the room’s 26-feet-high walls. In the dining room, the carved limestone architrave (formerly the entrance to the knight’s bedroom) reminded the owner of the city’s Co-Cathedral of St. John, so that historic space inspired its decor, especially the dark-blue walls embellished with gilded Maltese crosses and towers.
The staircase swirls up one more floor, leading to the owner's private quarters. A sleek, all-white space, it stands in stark contrast to the rest of the house as a minimalist sanctuary.
At the rear of the courtyard, an elegant Maltese garigor staircase spirals up to the three guest suites. “These palaces were the most extraordinary bachelor pads, built for one knight and his staff—up to 22 in some cases!” the owner explains. “This one even had a concubine room, totally hidden, with secret access to the knight’s bedroom and its own door to the streets.” (The concubine room is now the mezzanine-level guest suite.)
