Property description


The beginnings of Palazzo Donà date back to the early 14th century and decorative freizes can be found throughout, clearly influenced by Byzantine art. Another interesting example of Early Gothic influence can be found in the courtyard where there is an open staircase and a well in the middle. The pianno nobile also has a unique wooden Gothic vaulted ceiling, a Byzantine and Gothic quadrifora (four-light window) leading to the outdoor courtyard and the flooring has been done in the pastellone technique. The long and rich history of the palace has been upheld by its owners; an artistic family of painters and writers called Fonseca.

The piano nobile is composed of a wide and impressive entrance reception room of approx.40 sqm, a large living room of approx. 60 sqm; both of these sunny rooms enjoy an open view of San Polo square and feature pastellone floorings and high and decorated beamed ceilings. On the same level of the reception and living rooms there is a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom with a relaxing and comfortable steam room. In the reception room there is a hidden door that opens onto an internal staircase leading to a laundry room and toilet. Another staircase at the back of the reception room leads to a mezzanine level composed of a small sofa area overlooking the reception room, a double bedroom with a dressing room and an en suite bathroom.

Towards the rear of the piano nobile there is a kitchen-diner with a storage room, a second master bedroom of approx. 60 sqm facing a tranquil canal, another bedroom, a studio room, both towards the canal, and a bathroom. At the rear there is a second entrance to the apartment.

The property has also a private courtyard featuring Gothic vaults, an open staircase and a well in the middle. From the courtyard there is access to a private storage room, a small but charming under-stair chapel, and to the other apartment in the mezzanine, which is composed of a wide living room with terrazzo flooring and beamed ceiling, a bedroom and a bathroom.

The property is full of typically Venetian characteristics such as high and decorated beamed ceilings, pastellone and terrazzo flooring, beautiful gothic windows, a private courtyard with a marble well, and Byzantine features.
