Prestigious abode on the Grand Canal, within the Palazzo Fornoni on the ‘Riva del Vin’ (Embankment of Wine). The property, freshly refurbished, is in very good condition and enjoys spectacular views of the Rialto Bridge and the Grand Canal and features beautifully decorated beams, high ceilings, Venetian terrazzo floorings and a lift opening directly into the apartment.
The beautiful façade of the Palazzo in Venetian marmorino has been recently restored.
Ca’ Fornoni Grand Canal comprises: a radiant and ravishing principal sitting room – facing the Grand Canal, enjoying the morning and early afternoon sun and boasts beautifully decorated beams and a pair of French windows opening onto a pretty Juliet balcony, and, to the middle of the property, an intimate and elegant dining room.
To the rear of the apartment there are a kitchen/breakfast room, while to either side of the principal sitting room and sharing the same captivating Grand Canal views from their tall windows with balustrades to the fore, we have a second gorgeous sitting room – that could be also a bedroom – showcasing gleaming terrazzo flooring, an elegantly understated master bedroom, and a stylish bathroom.
And completing the accommodation to the centre and rear of the apartment respectively – a cosy and inviting twin bedroom – with wooden parquet flooring, and a second modern bathroom.
