Bekhradi`s Historical House Rehabilitation

"The Bekhradi’s House originally was built during the Safavid dynasty (17th century). The house is located in Sonbolestan, one of the oldest neighborhoods in northeast Isfahan. Sonbolestan, also known as Sonbolan, was part of a series of villages in Isfahan named Sepahan. These villages came to exist in the pre-Islamic era and later on were merged to form a large city, what is now called Isfahan.

In its present location, Bekhradi’s house is situated on the west section of the remaining Jamilan Palace surrounded by mud-thatched walls on the Northern and Western sides. Jamilan Palace, known as Cholmoun, was built by the Seljuq Dynasty (11-12th Century) in the middle of a large garden in Sonbolestan.

The Bekhradi’s House has been registered under the List of National Valued Historical Buildings in Iran. Also this historical building is the first and only Safavid historical house that has been restored and used in Iran for a traditional Inn since 2005.

Although the original architectural design has stayed the same but the interior layout and functionality of the house completely changed during restoration (1999 – 2005) to convert the house into a four star historical Inn.

There are a total of five suites; each suite has between one to three rooms and also a complete bathroom. The Talar or Great Hall is used as a dining room and the basement is used for a traditional tea house. The Inn will have a guest capacity of nineteen guests. Other spaces of the house are; Reception office, lobby, a kitchen, and front court yard.

Mr. Alireza (Alex) Bekhradi the current owner of Bekhradi’s house purchased the house in 1999 and started complete remodeling and restoration of it immediately. Mr. Bekhradi lives in the United States and owns a construction business in Houston, TX. He has many years of experience in line of construction business especially in restoration of commercial and residential buildings. His expertise in line of construction and restoration assisted him to restore this old and once burned down historical house into an antique yet practical facility. His main attention has been focused on restoring the house back to its original conditions by considering practicality and functionality of a house in twenty first century."
