The Yellow Riad (AKA the rabbit house)










video
This 140sqm plot riad is located in Zauoia and is built of brick, so relatively solid.  Nice 1st floor balconies, but ground floor rooms very compromised and difficult to see how they could be opened up.  However, nice features like the doors and cedar ceilings.  A decent size for the money, with loads of potential for renovation without being a knock down and rebuilt proposition.  Although a roof terrace could be easily created and there are even existing stairs, the surroundings are very open and difficult t create any privacy, plus the derelict riad next door, shared entrance and general surrounding area were not to our liking.
