The lovely Palazzo Zane Habsburg, an exquisite 17th century private palazzetto with wonderful musical acoustics in its double height balustraded salone and with beautiful frescoes, was bought a few years ago by a European Cultural Foundation, who have created a wonderful centre for Baroque music in Venice
The second piano nobile of Palazzo Grandiben proved irresistible a few years ago to some London-based lawyers, with five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a stunning terrace. They improved it even more by adding in state of the art technological features and have given it a great London vibe which complements the existing space. here is a before and after pic!

Venice is now a major world destination for contemporary art, not just during the Biennale but all year round, and we were very pleased to smooth and facilitate their arrival on the Venice scene. The property is once aga in for sale privately -either as a continuing art use or to return to a palatial private home… more information on request.
In the intervening period, of course, we have all experienced the effects of worldwide economic downturn and recession, but Venice has never been a bargain basement for property – owners of palaces which have been in their families for hundreds of years did not panic in the midst of this crisis, wholly understanding the intrinsic value of their property, and now we are seeing a sharp rise in interest from buyers at the top level of the market as confidence returns and excitement kicks in once again …
Discerning buyers continue to choose Venice as their luxury place of choice. A contemporary art hot spot, under two hours from most European destinations, and light years ahead in beauty, style… and total relaxation.
