Historic crafted timber and iconic views are offered at this Venice penthouse apartment on the Rio Della Sensa canal, which will go under the hammer via Concierge Auctions.
Located in the Cannaregio district, the canal-side building is currently arranged as two apartments – though it could be turned into a vast single residence – with a porta d’acqua (water door) and rustic courtyard where rowing boats can be moored.
The main apartment is set across two levels, with a soaring beamed ceiling that resembles the ribs of a boat. It has canal views with two adjoining arched windows framing the red brick of St Mark’s Campanile. The guest apartment similarly has timber-beamed ceilings and picture windows.
Interiors of the four-bedroom Venice property feature terrazzo tiles and varnished hardwood, and the building’s roof terrace has sweeping views across the Cannaregio area. The 4,628 sq ft pad is listed for auction with a guide price of €2.9m.
