Built by a fabulously wealthy glass merchant, this handsome complex of six buildings is spread over several levels. The numerous courtyards are designed to enhance the sense of space by becoming larger as they step up, culminating in an open courtyard on top. The high porticos and reception halls are decorated with the usual plaster reliefs and fine mirror work but also feature exceptionally beautiful and detailed stained-glass windows (as befits their original owner). The house’s khadame has been converted into a restaurant and teahouse.

To find the house, walk down a lane parallel to Alavi St, starting opposite the Hammam Sultan Mir Ahmad.
