Impressive apartment of approx. 500 sqm within the historic canal-side Palazzo Correr Contarini Zorzi known also as Ca' dei Cuori, for the presence of hearts in some wrought iron emblems on the facade.
The property is on the last two floors of the Palazzo, the third and fourth, with lift and features three wonderful terraces; one facing the Grand Canal and enjoying an open view spreading from the railway station to the Rialto market, the second one on the rear with a view over rooftops and bell towers and the third small one opened onto the dining room.
The apartment is in need of renovation and has a great potential, it features parquet floorings, a beautiful ‘Soffitto a Cassettoni' wooden ceiling in the living room, two water gates, a boat mooring and three different entrances.
The Palazzo has a lift and the common areas are in very good condition.
The property is composed of: an entrance, a large living room opened onto the terrace on the Grand Canal, a dining room, a sitting room, eight bedrooms, a kitchen, two bathrooms, three terraces and utility rooms.
A unique property in a privileged position in the Cannaregio ‘sestiere'… a much-loved district with a traditional old-world charm characterised by peaceful residential areas, a host of historic landmarks including the spectacular fairy tale Ca' d'Oro and the ancient Jewish Ghetto, plus long and wide canal-side ‘fondamente' including the Fondamente de la Misericordia and de la Sensa (with their fabulous selection of local restaurants and ‘bacari'), and the Fondamente Nove – Venice's northern waterfront overlooking the waters of the lagoon towards the distant peaks of the Dolomite mountains.
Within an easy stroll of some wonderful churches including the Santa Maria dei Miracoli, the Gesuiti and Madonna dell' Orto and close to the Strada Nova where you find shops galore plus supermarkets.
Convenient to 3 vaporetto (water bus) stops – San Marcuola (Casinò), Ca' d'Oro and Madonna dell' Orto – the latter allowing for easy travel to the beaches of the Lido and to the glass-blowing island of Murano, with connections at Fondamente Nove to the rainbow-coloured island of Burano and the island of Torcello.
