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.
Dimora San Lorenzo has two private entrances, it is a bright and airy apartment enjoying a marvelous view, and featuring beamed ceilings, partial Venetian terrazzo floors and parquet floors. There is also the possibility of dividing the property into two apartments and is in good condition.
The property is composed of: two independent entrances, a basement room and a storage on the ground floor, on the first floor there is a bedroom, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen and a bathroom, on the second floor there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, while on the third floor there is a kitchen, a dining room and an attic area with access to the ‘altana’ – roof terrace enjoying a wonderful view on the rooftops and bell towers all around.
Spacious 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.
