Ashrafieh 569 is one of the few heritage houses left in the Furn El Hayek area that has a garden and small pavilions. Compared to its neighbors, Ashrafieh 569 suffered more damages than the rest of the cluster. The three arches on the upper floor were destroyed by the impact of the blast, and the partial destruction of the roof damaged the Baghdadi ceiling on the upper floor. Both floors needed propping in order to consolidate the building structure. The villa’s pitched roof was also heavily damaged, and was covered by a Tarpaulin cover. Existing tiles found in good condition on the main roof, were reused on the roofs of the two small pavilions that weren’t as heavily damaged.
