Sometimes a little too technical but always interesting ....


The Riad you've been waiting for ...

This is it. This riad is just perfect. It is right in the souks in the medina, just behind El Hedim square and the Meknes museum.
The riad is about 200 sq meters and it is almost all on the ground floor. It even has Orange trees in the patio. I told you .... Perfect !
This is not a run down ruin which will need long years of renovating. This is the ready-to-go version. You can move in tomorrow !! This riad is unique in Meknes.
The French couple who own it have done an astounding job on this house. I love this riad because it was renovated in purely traditional fashion. No cement in here. No fast, cheap alternatives. It is all clay bricks, lime and cedar wood.
The patio is very vast and has arches all around its sides. The sun comes right into the center of the property and the effect is absolutely delightful. Under the arches there is marvelous sculpted woodwork. The fountain is fabulous and all the sculpted cedar doors are authentic.
The interior design is just as amazing. Some rooms have kept a very traditional touch with beautiful woodwork and sculpted plaster whereas other areas like this living area have a much more modern touch.

I can't recommend this riad enough. If you want to get a better feel of the house you can take this virtual tour. If you wish, I can also send you some extra photos of the interior and the terrace. The couple are asking a very decent price for this riad and seeing how the market has gone a little crazy in Meknes recently, I don't think this riad will be on offer for very long. I've seen ruins that were being sold for more than this.
Feel free to contact me for price and details.


I'm not going to be very positive on this one !

I've been putting this one off for a long time. It's one of my closest neighbours. In terms of distance I mean. No, no .... no local feud. No I haven't been keeping it for myself either. Though it would be great .... I'd have about 50m of El Hédim wall all to myself.
No, I've been putting it off simply because I found the price completely ridiculous. They've been asking for 500 000 Euros for it to all those who came to see it. I told you it was ridiculous.
But today they came to see me saying they really wanted to sell and I let myself get lured into going to take a few shots. Basically it's a very tall house on three levels. Not traditional at all. All concrete structure and woodwork that might not even be fifty years old. And there is a quite "interesting?" piano like fountain sitting right in the middle of it all.
I'm not doing a very good job of selling this am I ?

Let's try and see the positive points ..... Check out this view. It's even better than mine. You're right up against the wall. Perfect location and loads of space to redecorate !
Peak out through the windows and this is what you get ..... and from the terrace it's even better of course. Come to think of it, it's one of the rare houses that has windows actually opening in the Ismailian wall.

I know .... not so many positive points and a lot of very possibly pointless negociating, but can't you just imagine what you could do with this little corner ....
Okay, so it's not a bargain but now that I've taken the shots and written the post I may as well publish ;)
In any case, if you happen to have that sort of money to spend, make sure you come and make an offer on Riad Felloussia before you sign anything.
