This newly built 151m2 riad is in a truly excellent condition and is beautifully well maintained.
It is situated in a super cool and practical location in Zaouia, and curiously is built into the ancient ramparts of the Medina.
From the roof terrace one looks out over the crenellations of the old pise walls of Marrakech onto one of the principal parks of the city.
Not only is it a fabulous vantage point – also the situation is hugely atmospheric, especially at dusk with all the multitudes of swallows that nest in the nooks of the ramparts darting around hither and tither.
The riad itself is lovely and spacious, and hugely decorative with a wealth of traditional Moroccan architectural detailing. As can be seen from the photos, there are some exquisite touches – such as the hand carved ceilings, ornamental mosaics and the delicate woodwork on the balcony and old fashioned feature doors.
The property currently boasts on the ground floor an entrance hall with a communal lavatory, a large patio full of ornate features, a fully fitted kitchen, an office / library, a salon and a full sized reception room. On the first floor there is an open salon and three generous bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Then on the roof terrace there is a traditional hammam, a fourth bedroom, a BBQ area, a tented seating area and a covered open kitchen.
The price is 260,000 Euros.
