A stunning and highly decorative whole floor of an important and imposing 15th century palace on the elegant Campo Santo Stefano in San Marco with extensive reception rooms bedrooms and bathrooms as well as an internal divine galleried terrace. In addition a mansarda floor with further bedrooms and bathrooms, access to an altana roof terrace. 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The property is accessed by its own front door at ground level from the campo and is a completely private entrance (porta sola) with private wide staircase up to the first floor. There are magazzini (storage rooms) at ground level as well as a second entrance leading to a side canal for easy boat access.
The palazzo dates from the 15th century with later additions. This exquisite apartment is decorated with stunning 18th century frescoes and paintings by Pietro Perotti under the protection of the Belle Arti. Perotti exhibited at the Royal Academy and lived in London between 1772-1775. He was married to Angelica le Gru who was a pupil of the famous Italian artist Rosalba Carriera.
The property would benefit from some updating within the framework of this exquisite palazzo but is a stunning and exceptional property
SAN MARCO This is the historical centre of the town, with the grand Piazza San Marco at its very heart. The buildings are all on a fabulously grand scale. A visit to the Church of San Marco and the Doge's Palace are a must for anyone who is visiting Venice for the first time; as is a bellini at Harry's Bar. You will find most of the designer shops and luxury brands around this area, including a number of fine and historical jewellers hidden among the colonnades of the piazza itself. In high season, this quarter becomes quite crowded; I like to get up early and make a trip to Piazza San Marco at dawn, when the square is delightfully empty and quiet.
