This has to be my all time favourite Medina property in Essaouira. Period.
I so pleased that Chic Marrakech have just taken it on as exclusive property agents in Essaouira.
It is a simply fantastic riad – restored and owned by a dear English friend – who has created the most intriguing and quirky and cozy bohemian home.
It is unlike any other renovated riad that I know – and totally has its own vibe and style.
The house has featured in numerous publications and design magazines; from Elle, to the New York Times.
It is a four bedroom riad – designed like a cavern – with a succession of different spaces – and individualised living rooms and hang out spots.
The house is all internalised – with the patio doubling up as living space.
It is filled with a wealth of funky art work and collectibles – and has the feel of being a real home – filled with warmth and character.
It is worth noting that the property is a successful medina rental property and is being sold as a ongoing business.
The riad is conveniently situated near the Hotel Bleue in the heart of the medina near Bab Doukkala in close proximity to the food quarter.
It is just a ten minutes walk to Essaouira’s long sandy beach.
The riad currently boasts on the ground floor an entrance hall, two salons, and a patio with a fountain and the famous swing chair. In the first floor is a bedroom, a kitchen and dining room and a salon with a fireplace. On the second floor is a lower terrace and two bedrooms – then an upper terrace with a fourth bedroom and a terrace with panoramic views.
The price of this unique Medina real estate opportunity is just 290,000 €.
