Luxurious, spacious penthouse with 3 terraces in an important historic palazzo of the 12th century, built by spice-and silk traders from the orient. The interior design reflects the period and origin of the Palazzo and is adapted to modern lifestyle in a unique way; the apartment is a true oasis in Cannaregio - a very special part of Venice where you can still find typical Venetian atmosphere and scenes, away from mass tourism but close to all the main attractions and surrounded by numerous Restaurants and wine bars. There are spectacular views from all three terraces over the roofs of Venice as far as the Campanile of San Marco, and the panoramic window overlooking Murano, which is akin to a Canaletto seascape painting, changing colors according to light and weather. On all the terraces you can relax and breath the fresh sea air, accompanied by the sound of sea gulls. The first is dedicated to relaxing, with a sun bed and deck chairs; the second has a modern barbecue and eating area, while the third is ideal for breakfast or evening cocktails.
The penthouse apartment itself of approx.170 sq m occupies the whole of the third and top floor as a single unit and is accessed by an elevator. It is luxuriously furnished in mainly oriental style with precious art work. Ancient beamed ceilings, which are illuminated by spot lights, are visible throughout the apartment and create a very special atmosphere. There is one large living room with dining area, from where you enter a fully equipped small kitchen under the eves; opposite, again under the eves, there is a relaxation/television room with a pull out double bed couch (adaptable into a 140 cm wide bed )… Also off the living room is another bedroom (160 cm bed width) with an own terrace; and finally, a shower / bathroom in beautiful Venetian style mosaic. Whereas the master double bedroom (160cm large bed) with its own terrace, facing west, is a separate unit and has a luxurious en-suite marble bathroom with mosaic inlays and a jacuzzi whirl-pool and shower. It is accessed through a studio/dressing room with 2 single pull out beds and has another terrace, facing east. There is Wi-Fi, satellite television, washing machine and a dual mode air conditioning/heating system, as well as underfloor-and central heating throughout the whole apartment.
