Bayt Junblatt is a historic mansion just north of Bab al-Nasr, one of the gates to the old walled city of Aleppo. The house's namesake is Junblat ibn 'Arbu, who built the house in the seventeenth/eleventh century AH.
The house has a large central courtyard with a rectangular fountain at its center. The south side of the courtyard is occupied by a large iwan whose facade rises above the rest of the house. The interior of this iwan is decorated with tile revetments and marble dadoes. A smaller, second story iwan opens onto the north side, accessible via a staircase. The facade of the northern iwan is treated with alternating bands of black and white stone (ablaq).
The home was severely damaged during the Syrian Civil War.
