A magnificent XV century Piano Nobile restored to its original splendour, with the added features and amenities of a contemporary home. With 11 windows fronting a pretty canal, the property comprises three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, two terraces, a living room, kitchen dining room, and garden with private water-gate. Upon entering the piano nobile you find yourself in a huge living room with a bespoke Verona marble fireplace and five grand windows flooding the space with sunlight throughout the day.
The pentafora opens onto a long balcony carved in Noto Stone, and is perhaps the palazzo’s most romantic spot. To the right of the living room is the first en-suite bedroom, affording views on the garden’s bamboo trees, jasmine and wisteria. Its bathroom is superbly finished with Bisazza tiles, free-standing bathtub, double vanity unit, working fireplace, and tall french windows. Adjoining the bedroom is a small foyer leading to a divine eat-in kitchen.
The configuration of this room, which sits on the corner of the building and is directly connected to the terrace and garden, makes it the most desirable space of the house. From the terrace, a handcrafted iron staircase spirals down to the garden and water gate. To the left of the living room is another very private section of the apartment – a palatial bedroom, study with en-suite terrace and a marble bathroom. Also this portion of the house stretches along the canal with gorgeous vistas framed by the apartment’s tall windows.
The apartment is around 250 sq,m, with terraces of 37 square metres, while the 118 square metre garden, designed by landscape architect Nicolas Lauzeral, is an oasis of peace and relaxation. A pathway lined with bamboo trees, jasmine and wisteria leads to the water gate where a boat can be moored. There is a private magazzino storage unit on the ground floor.
additional features: Independent heating/air-conditioning units in every room, insulated windows, satellite tv, high-speed internet throughout, original terrazzo floors, two working fireplaces, 4 metre ceilings, near the most important venues of the Biennale of Art, Architecture, Music, Dance and Theatre.

CASTELLO Traditionally, the more 'local' quarter of the city - it has a rather charming village-like feel about it, with smaller houses and delightful little campi. To this day it is largely residential: Via Garibaldi, the main street, is bursting with little shops and family run businesses, as well as a few market stalls, and a barge selling fruit and veg at the end of the street. It leads on to a leafy park, where children can play in the playground. In the summertime, the Art and Architecture Biennale is hosted in this part of town, with lots of pop up small scale exhibits, alongside the main shows.
