Impeccable style and glamorous sophistication unite in this superb contemporary duplex
Venice is a city that never fails to make an impact. Not only is the place staggeringly beautiful, owning a property in the world’s most romantic city is an attractive investment.
Apart from being one of the best-preserved cities in Europe, Venice is well-known for its magical atmosphere. In addition, there are superb transport links to the coast and ski resorts. Skiing in the Veneto region, of which Venice is the capital, is centred on the Dolomite Mountains, where there is snow from November to April.
This Renaissance city has a great allure for prospective foreign buyers who want a second home or investment property in La Serenissima, the most Serene Republic, as Venice used to be called.
One district drawing considerable interest is Castello, which is one of the oldest parts of the city. It is Venice’s largest sestiere (district), extending from the Rialto to Sant’Elena at the eastern tip of the city. A large part of the district is covered by the picturesque Giardini Pubblici park.
Renowned for its Venetian authenticity, eastern Castello is one of the few areas of Venice’s historic centre that can boast its own residential character. The quieter end of the waterfront (riva), which runs along the length of Castello on Venice’s southern shore, is a good destination in the early morning or at sunset, when there are dazzling views over the skyline. With old men fishing in the lagoon alongside moored luxury yachts, it has the air of a charming fishing village.
With an ultra-modern and sleek architectural design, this stylish duplex makes a bold statement with the emphasis firmly on city chic.
