An elegant canal side apartment in the Castello area of San Lorenzo, really the best of both worlds close to all the must-see sights of St Mark’s Square and yet right next to the quieter, more atmospheric neighbourhood of Castello.
Ca’ San Lorenzo is a light and airy apartment with lovely views over a wide canal, featuring beamed ceilings, partial Venetian terrazzo floorings and parquet floorings. It is on the first floor of a nice palazzetto and is in good conditions.
The property is composed of: a large entrance hall, a living room with a three-light window and a balcony, a sitting room and a dining room, all of them facing the Rio di San Lorenzo, a kitchen, two double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, a single bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a fourth bathroom and a terrace overlooking a garden. Windows and shutters have been recently replaced. Venetian terrazzo floorings and parquet floorings are in excellent condition.
Space and relaxed apartment in a fabulous spot, less than ten minutes from all the must-see sights of St Mark’s Square (including the Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Clock Tower) and yet right next to the quieter, more atmospheric neighbourhood of Castello.
A short walk to the atmospheric Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni and its wonderful Carpaccio paintings, the monumental Dominican Basilica di Santi Giovanni e Paolo (one of the largest churches in Venice and burial place of no fewer than 25 Venetian Doges), and to Campo Santa Maria Formosa (site of the Querini Stampalia) passing Palazzo Grimani on the way.
And even closer to home – moments to the cavernous and newly restored Church of San Lorenzo (long closed but now home to Ocean Space – a collaborative platform focusing on ocean conservation) and to the Museo di Dipinti Sacri Byzanti (Museum of Icons) just along the canal.
Also within easy reach of the local Punto supermarket and to the vaporetto (water bus) stop at San Zaccaria for easy travel around the city.
