Follow in the footsteps of 15-century Doge Francesco Molin at his former home – Palazzo Molin del Cuoridoro – in the San Marco sestiere.
An exceptional example of a Venetian Gothic palazzo complete with coat of arms, Gothic Fiorito windows and exquisite water doors, the palazzo is now home to a meticulously restored apartment with towering ceilings, designer furnishings, touch-control technology and terrazzo floorings.
Like an imperious grande dame commanding respect and adulation in the midst of all the action near La Fenice and St. Mark’s Square, this historic palazzo (listed for its importance by the Belle Arti) provides an astonishing backdrop to this apartment.
Situated on the ground floor to the side and rear of the palazzo and accessed via the palazzo’s water door or the Culti-decorated communal ‘androne’ hallway, the accommodation comprises: a bright and impressively proportioned wooden-beamed main living space overlooking the picturesque gondola-plied Rio dei Fuseri canal, home to a sitting/dining area furnished with a pair of chaise-longue sofas – one in scarlet, the other in black & white houndstooth – a timber dining table with iconic ‘Vitra Panton S chairs’ in red, and a well-equipped kitchenette cleverly concealed by a sliding screen depicting Cole & Son’s whimsical ‘Fornasetti Senza Tempo Teatro’ wall-covering.
An elegant principal bedroom overlooking the canal with a double bed and with a luxurious en suite bathroom in marble with shower.
Approached from the main living space, steps lead down to a cosy studio/bedroom furnished with a double sofa bed and looking out onto the palazzo’s communal courtyard garden
A separate bathroom in marble with large shower.
A luxury palazzo apartment with contemporary character, with world-famous attractions waiting to greet you at every turn.
Moments to all the must-see sights of/near Piazza San Marco including the towering Campanile, the Basilica, the Doge’s Palace, the Clock Tower (Torre dell’ Orologio), Harry’s Bar, Caffé Florian (300 years old this year!), not forgetting the incredibly charming hidden Scala Contarini del Bovolo and the gondola station at Bacino Orseolo.
Within a short walk of 3 vaporetto (water bus) stops – Rialto, San Marco Vallaresso and Sant’Angelo for easy movement around the city – and to the traghetto gondola ferry at Sant’ Angelo/Garzoni crossing the Grand Canal to San Toma in labyrinthine district of San Polo.
An easy amble across the iconic Rialto Bridge to the Rialto Market (food shopping heaven!) Also within a short stroll of the Palazzo Grassi Museum of Modern Art and the Accademia Bridge.
