The House

It was during the mid-last century’s Golden Age that this deep-rooted House was built, a few meters away from the 1st circle, in one of the oldest neighborhoods of Amman. The House, which deviated from tradition, but still kept the old-style of the Jordanian cream color lime stone façade represents early sophistication celebrating a contemporary life style.
Typical of the era, it is high-perched with a once open front balcony. This important factor, which denoted an above street level, was created mainly to over look the street, landscape and passers by. The interior is ornamented with polished cream and white tiles along with rose and terracotta stone, a mixed combination of geologies, mainly from Palestine (Jerusalem and Ramallah) and the Daba’a, desert area south of Amman.
The House’s main door has been converted into a huge cloak cupboard decorating the reception area and is made of imported oak wood, along with the rest of thewood used inside the house. The outdoor lush garden used to have an upstanding pool, which is now converted into a water reserve, is planted with typically Oriental vegetation namely fragrant Jasmine and several bay leaf, fig, apricot and almond tree.
Originally it was built and owned by the late H.E. Mr. Fawzi Al-Mulki one of the Prime Ministers of Jordan and his son Prime Minister of Jordan, H.E. Hani Mulki was born there. The House has always been a diplomatic center for prominent figures including his Majesty the late King Hussein. The House also became the residence of the Spanish Ambassador who hosted many diplomats, politicians and heads of state including Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain.
