NEW YORK, Oct. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions, a property company counting a number of celebrities amongst its clients, is auctioning a canal-side palazzo apartment in the heart of Venice, Italy. The apartment comprises the sought-after 'Piano Nobile' floors of the historic Palazzo Molin, the rooms historically used for receptions and entertaining. Combining luxury interiors with unique Renaissance architecture, the property was previously offered for sale for €7.76million and will be sold at auction on 27 October, with a reserve price of €4.5million.
The apartment boasts an original Gothic façade dating back to the 15th century, which faces onto the canal on two sides. With an incredible reception room, dining area, large kitchen, balconies, three en-suite bedrooms, two further bedrooms and bathrooms and a guest cloakroom, the property offers the ideal home for entertaining. Period features include beamed ceilings, lofty ceilings and four balconies, all in a state-of-the-art palazzo restored for the 21st Century. The Palazzo itself features a grand entrance and impressive lobby designed by Milan based designer Culti, and a tranquil courtyard designed by Italian landscape gardener, Marco Battagia.
Ideally located, Piano Nobile is a short walk to the Piazza San Marco and The Grand Canal. The property is less than 20 minutes from Santa Lucia train station and under half an hour from Venice Marco Polo International Airport by water taxi.
"Venice is truly unique. There is no place like it on earth, and if someone wants a high level worldwide property portfolio, Venice must be on the list," states Charlie Smith, Concierge Auctions' European advisor. "The building has been utterly refurbished with 21st century luxury specification, but the Venetian style still remains and all within an absolutely incredible location."
The vendor's representative, Marguerite Krikhaar, founder of Skylla Group, comments: "Restoring property in Venice is immensely complicated. As a result, only 10 per cent of properties in the city are completed to what can be considered an 'international' standard. This apartment within Palazzo Molin is one of the best examples within this 10 per cent, benefitting from the highest specification of contemporary finish and the luxury features which discerning buyers have come to expect."

Barbara Corcoran, one of the sharks on ABC's Shark Tank (the US version of Dragon's Den), sits on the company's advisory board.
