This is one of the most spectacular riads in Marrakech and is a landmark hotel in the medina.
It is the most fantastic medina real estate opportunity to come on the property market and I am so pleased that Chic Marrakech have taken on the instruction to market it as the top medina property specialist.
The property is situated right in the heart of the old city in Marrakech – in the most fantastic prime location.
The palace riad that is now for sale used to be a part of the enormous sprawling palace of the last Pacha of Marrakech – the nefarious Pacha Glaoui – who sold his country out to the French for huge personal gain.
The medina property has the most fantastic history and is a massive 1,500m2.
It is a vast courtyard riad – designed on a grand scale and built around the principal colonnaded courtyard – with its wonderful marble tiling and intricate Zellij work spread across the floor and decorating the mosaic wall fountains.
The riad has an immediate wow factor – from the moment one arrives – with its succession of fountains in the entrance hall and it takes ones breathe away with its scale, Moroccan architecture and ambience.
It is the perfect picture postcard of what a medina palace should be.
The property boasts immediate car access and car parking.
It is worth noting that the riad is currently a renowned luxury six bedroom hotel and also restaurant – with full dining facilities and it is being sold as a business.
There are vast communal spaces – and sprawling terraces, and it operates too as a venue for private parties and private functions.
There are six bedrooms within the hotel – including the bridal suite – with its unrivalled opulence. The bridal suite is a maserpiece of craftsmanship with its sculpted plaster walls and ceilings.
At present the riad boasts on the ground floor and entrance and reception with an open lounge and cascading fountains, a massive dining hall, a private lounge with a fireplace, a proper bar, lavatories, kitchens, the bridal suite and a enormous colonnaded patio with a pool and decorative fountains. On the first floor are three suites and a bedroom and guest terracing.
Further details of the property are available from Chic Marrakech.
The owner has also recently purchased an adjoining plot, and there is an approved planning application for a major refurbishment for up to sixteen new rooms.
