A gorgeous open plan first floor apartment, a Piano Nobile in an antique palazzo in a wonderfully prominent position, directly overlooking Venice's largest and one of its most attractive palazzo-fringed campos, Campo San Polo - enjoying tons of light and space as well as charming views onto the small and peaceful 'Rio Della Madonnetta' canal to the rear.
The property also features a large private entrance, roomy storage spaces on the ground floor and a private water access to the canal.
Super-convenient for reaching the Rialto Bridge and market area as well as the famous sights within the neighbouring districts of Dorsoduro, Santa Croce and San Marco (the latter by crossing the Grand Canal by 'Traghetto' Gondola Ferry at nearby San Toma or San Silvestro).
The apartment has a private entrance leading to a large, bright and beautifully airy main living area with five large windows overlooking the campo. This main room has high beamed ceilings, cool polished Venetian terrazzo flooring and a comfortable sitting area. The well-equipped kitchen and dining areas just off this area are smart, uncluttered and boldly accented with vivid shades of chinese lacquer red - a warm and optimistic colour tone which contrasts well against the apartment's cool whitewashed walls and slightly minimalist appeal.
There are three bedrooms; two double and a single, all of them are roomy, comfortable and have terrazzo flooring, the two bathrooms (one with a shower and the other with bathtub) are up- to-date and equipped with modern fittings.
Three storage rooms, a laundry and a water door on the ground floor completes the accommodation.
The property is in a central area of Venice, in Campo San Polo, between the Frari Church and the Rialto Bridge and within moments of a rich variety of shops aimed at satisfying both visitor and residential needs, including two small supermarkets, the world-famous fresh fruit, vegetable and fish markets at Rialto and its surrounding specialist food stores.
Close to an excellent variety of cafes, bars, osterie and bacari, as well as some of the most well-known names on the Venice restaurant scene including.
The property is also conveniently located between two ‘vaporetto' (water bus) stops on the Grand Canal: San Tomà and San Silvestro, allowing easy access to all parts of Venice and to the Lido, and to two ‘Traghetto' gondola ferries crossing the Grand Canal to the district of San Marco, moreover it is only ten minutes walking from Piazzale Roma and the railway station.
