'Marvelous Arab-style House with a Distinct Allure, A Must Have'

In 1911, Saleh Giacaman, like many other Bethlehemites, had two houses built in the neighbourhood of Musrara in Jerusalem, one for his son Issa and the other for his son Yacoub.


DREAM HOMES is delighted to present to you for the very first time rare handmade maps by members of the family for whom the house was built.
