Piano Nobile Fontebasso San Marco

An important and original piano nobile in an excellent and discreet location in San Marco close to the Grand Canal

The primo piano nobile of a 16th century palazzo commissioned from architetto Vincente Scamozzi. In an excellent yet discreet location, the property comprises huge reception rooms with 7 metre high ceilings, frescoed ceilings and all original features.

In 1741 the interiors were re-done according to the style of the period, with the famous artist Francesco Fontebasso commissioned to create a pictorial cycle of frescoes on the ceilings of the Palazzo. The property retains all interior features, has remained intact over the centuries with its still original and beautiful floors, doors and ceilings, and is protected by the 'Belle Arti'.

Two matching balconies are situated at either end of the piano nobile, both with canal views. The palazzo entrance is impressive and has a private water gate.

Perfect as an elegant private home or for a private art collector or foundation.

What attracted us to this property

When we view a new property we are focussing principally on our international clientele and their wish lists, for example historic features, outside space, water access, great views and light. Location is always a consideration, but if we find a truly unique property we may decide it's still worth a look whatever the area - Venice is so small really! The potential for restoration is often a plus, to achieve a truly personalised space. But at the end of the day we always ask ourselves this one deciding question: do we actually LIKE this property? If it ticks lots of boxes but doesn't feel right, we prefer not to take it on.

This is the property that most of us dream of... huge spaces and amazing frescoed ceilings... a backdrop for either a classic decor or ultra contemporary, and in a tucked away but super central location in San Marco, close to the Grand Canal and with side views. A classic and completely original property.

Location

San Marco

This is the historical centre of the town with the grand Piazza San Marco at its very heart with Venice’s most coveted museums: Palazzo Ducale and Museo Correr. The buildings in this area of town are all on a fabulously grand scale. You will find most of the designer shops and luxury brands around this area, including a number of fine jewellers hidden among the colonnades of the piazza itself. The best time to visit this area is in the evening when the sun sets over the curved domes of St. Mark’s Basilica and live music sweeps across the piazza defined by Napoleon as the “finest drawing room in Europe”.
