On the Market: Luxury Living in Aristocratic Venice

This 15th-century palazzo is steeped in the history of aristocratic Venice. A Gotico Fiorito architectural gem, the palace bears the coat of arms of the noble family of Molin, which gave the ancient Republic of Venice a doge.  Mozart once lived within the building’s stately rooms as a guest. His host, Count Falletti, is said to have inspired the main character in the opera Don Giovanni.

 Under the direction of Milan-based design house CULTI, this palazzo has been fully restored and refurbished to create 17 contemporary apartments for sale. The completed restoration presents a new way for owners and their guests to enjoy life in noble proportions, amid luxury and the best in modern facilities and convenience.the best in modern facilities and convenience.the best in modern facilities and convenience.

The property is located in San Marco, the historic heart of Venice. The palazzo occupies a prestigious location at the meeting point of the Barcaroli and Fuseri canals. It has two water gates, which is unusual even by the standards of Venetian privilege. From the airport, the journey across the lagoon takes about 20 minutes by private water taxi – for a discreet and elegant arrival at the palazzo’s main water gate.

 Piazza San Marco and La Fenice opera house are both a short walk away – a proximity that was enjoyed by a young Mozart during his time at the palazzo in 1771. Today Palazzo Molin is temptingly near to the designer boutiques, artisans’ shops and gastronomic delights of the Frezzaria as well as the contemporary art collections at Palazzo Grassi.

 Please note that there is an opportunity to combine two apartments, the prestigious Piano Nobile (floor of the nobleman) and the Mantegna mezzanine apartment to create a spacious 6 bedrooms and 5 bathroom home. The floor plan and price is available upon request.
