Sestiere Castello Venice Apartment property


Near to Campo Santa Marina, sestiere Castello, is a 185-sqm property located on the ground floor. The property is currently used as a workshop and in the past was used as the atelier of an artist: it is, however, possible to convert this very nice property into a private Venice apartment dwelling with up to 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.
The train station Santa Lucia il located in sestiere Cannaregio (1.8 km; XXX) while Piazzale Roma (terminal for the bus line) is located in sestiere Santa Croce (2.3 km; 30’); both allow quickly reaching Mestre, on the mainland of Italy.

The property is in good condition with floors tiled in the typical Venetian graniglia, wooden beams supporting the ceilings, wooden matchboarding and ceiling in the main halls over 3 m tall. Access is through a porta d’acqua (literally a ‘water door’ right along the canals, with no actual road) and the property features a private boat mooring spot.
The size of the unit would make it possible with a slight reworking of the internal layout, to split the property into two smaller independent apartments.

From the property, located close to Campo Santa Marina, one can easily reach on foot the most famous monuments and landmarks of Venice. Ranked by distance we can find Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo (200 m; 3’) with the Chiesa di Zanipolo and the equestrian monument dedicated to Bartolomeo Colleoni, the famous and unmistakable Ponte di Rialto (400 m; 5’) crossing the Canal Grande, Calle Varisco (400 m; 5’), one of the narrowest alleys in the world (just 53 cm wide!), the unique and beautiful Piazza San Marco (600 m, 8’) with the homonym Basilica and the imposing Palazzo Ducale, the Scala del Bovolo (800 m; 10’), part of the beautiful Palazzo Contarini, the prestigious theatre “La Fenice” (900 m; 10’), the fortified Arsenal (1.0 km; 12’) whose work allowed Venice to dominate the Mediterranean Sea for centuries, the Gothic church of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari (1.3 km; 15’), the Gallerie dell’Accademia (1.5 km; 20’) and finally the Peggy Guggenheim Collection (1.5 km; 20’).
