Historic Palace in Venice for Sale
This beautiful Gothic Palazzo is located in Castello, 10 minutes from Piazza San Marco in Venice. The palace, once described by John Ruskin, the leading English art critic of the Victorian era, as one of the most beautiful buildings in Venice, has been painstakingly restored to its former elegance and glory.
Formerly the residence of the Contarini family, one of the most powerful and influential families in Venice and one of the founding families of the Venetian Republic, the magnificent palazzo currently features 20 apartments including an exceptional 613m² piano nobile apartment. The apartments have retained all original features such as marble bathrooms and are finished to a very high standard.
The palace also benefits from a large communal courtyard with an original well, an external ornate staircase, formal garden and private water gate. Dating from the early 15th century, it is a perfect example of the high Gothic period.
