This extra-ordinary historic 525m2 riad is so rare now. There are so few similar unrestored riads left on the Medina property market. It is one of the last of its kind.
It is a super grand courtyard house – slash mini palace, built on an impressive scale, and it boasts a wealth of original Moroccan architectural detailing; from its ubiquitous antique feature slatted wooden geiza ceilings, to its sculpted plaster work.
As is typical of this grand style of one storey palatial riads – the floor to ceilings heights are a lofty 8 meters and there is scope to add another entire floor on the roof terrace, if required as part of a restoration.
The spatial arrangement of the riad is extremely interesting and there is a curiously long windy entrance that befits the property.
The focal point of the house is the whopping courtyard garden – set out in a traditional form, with two open colonnaded salons from which to take in the tranquility and lushness of the patio.
The riad is enviably situated in a prime location in the Kasbah district of the Medina – in close proximity to the King’s royal palace, and unusually boasts immediate car access and parking.
The 5m dhs price is negotiable.
