A memorable apartment with an astonishing ‘altana’ roof terrace, enviably situated on the top floor of the 15th Century Palazzo Mocenigo on the Grand Canal – the oldest palazzo within the legendary family of ancient Venetian palaces Mocenigo called ‘Ca’ Vecchia’.
In one of the most distinguished and hauntingly atmospheric locations in the entire city, Ca’ Del Mercante is on the third floor, served by lift and enjoys wonderful panoramic views.
The property has also a private boat mooring.
The apartment comprises: a large and wonderfully bright and airy L-shaped main sitting/ dining room with six windows over the Grand Canal offering superb vistas of such well-known Venetian landmarks as the Church of the Frari, the ‘Traghetto’ at San Toma, Ca’ Foscari and so much more besides.
There are two highly appealing bedrooms on this level – a very comfortable master bedroom overlooking the Grand Canal and an up-to-date en suite bathroom, plus a second bedroom also with fabulous Grand Canal views. Also on this floor are two further bathrooms, one with a bathtub and the other with a shower.
A wooden staircase leads up to the third bedroom – a snug and peaceful ‘top of the house’ retreat from which a further very short wooden staircase allows access to an amazing furnished ‘altana’ roof terrace with breathtaking views to capture the imagination at every turn, drawing the eye from the Campanile at St.Mark’s to the Teatro La Fenice, from the tilting tower of Santo Stefano to the domes of Santa Maria Della Salute and from the atrium of Palazzo Grassi to San Polo.
The property is located close to Campo Santo Stefano, the Accademia Bridge/ Academy of Fine Arts and less than two minutes walk to the Palazzo Grassi Museum of Modern Art in an exclusive area known for its antique shops and galleries.
Everyday needs are met by a grocery/ delicatessen, wine shop, restaurants, wine bars and cafes, while two nearby vaporetto stops (San Samuele – Line 2 and Sant’ Angelo – Line 1) and ‘Traghetto’ service allow for easy travel around the city (the latter ferrying passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal between Calle Del Tragheto near Sant’ Angelo and San Toma in the district of San Polo).
