An elegant terraced house in the Castello area of San Lorenzo, Greci, really the best of both worlds close to all the must-see sights of St Mark’s Square and yet right next to the quieter, more atmospheric neighbourhood of Castello.
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 floorings and parquet floorings. There is also the possibility of dividing the property in 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 are a bedroom, a living room featuring a two-light window, a dining room, a kitchen and a bathroom, on the second floor there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, while on the third the floor there is a kitchen, a dining room and attic area with access to the ‘altana’ – roof terrace enjoying a wonderful view on the rooftops and bell towers all around.
Space 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.
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.
