Majestic 16th-century Noble Estate In Venice
Prestigious Venetian estate with a spectacular waterfront and chance of mooring
Wonderful three-storey period building a few minutes from Piazza San Marco
In the heart of Venice, a few minutes from Piazza San Marco and the Fondazione Querini-Stampalia, there is this majestic three-storey 16th-century period building for sale.
The original project of the building, built in the 1500s and partially modified in the 1700s, is today perfectly preserved in structural terms, and is according to many attributable to Jacopo Sansovino - one of the undisputed masters of the late Renaissance in Italy - who left important signs in Florence and in Venice, with Palazzo Corner and the Golden Staircase in the Doge's Palace.
In the lagoon, the morphology of the palaces follows its own features due to the particular conformation of the waterways and the different historical-political eras that have seen patrician families affirm their economic weight in the splendor of this palace.
Maximum expression of the splendor of the Serenissima, the residence expresses in its splendor the affirmed economic weight of the Venetian patrician families who lived here, having extraordinarily preserved elements of absolute grandiloquence in the monumental plan of the Piano Nobile, which shows the overcoming of a purely ornate Codussi style. Over the centuries, the building has been the centre of a significant international cultural life, welcoming famous musicians, thanks to its particularly good acoustics for concerts, artists such as Tommaso Marinetti, founder of the "Futurism", and intellectuals such as Ernest Hemingway.
The façade overlooking the river has maintained its original appearance and the main door boasts a scenic water mouth with mooring and the possibility of docking.
The entrance on the calle still has the structure of the central hall from which the property's richly decorated monumental rooms branch off. The property includes the ground floor, the first floor, and the second floor, for a total of about 1,000 sqm, connected by a convenient internal lift.
Ideal as an elegant private home or as a fascinating venue for events and exhibitions, this magnificent 16th-century palace for sale in Venice is the dream home for those looking for uncompromising luxury in a central location, with a variety of services available.
