--- LOT DESCRIPTION --

For centuries, the Doge's palace has been the residence of the most powerful man in Venice. Now it is one of the most magnificent buildings in this magical floating city.

The Doge's Palace is a 6 bedroom 6 bathroom stately home built entirely on water. The palace is heavily based on the real life Doge's Palace located in Venice, Italy.

The Venetian palace is a mix of various eclectic styles including Gothic, Renaissance, and Oriental. The palace is situated amongst a maze of canals and waterways that are typical of the Venetian cityscape. A small bridge welcomes guests and a floating walkway flanked by fountains leads to the main entrance accessible by ascending an imposing set of stairs. The focal point of the facade is the elaborate second floor gallery which spans the entire length of the palace, and the salmon-pink mosaic tile finish on the third level gives the palace a dazzling glow amidst the intense Italian sun.

The two-story great reception hall occupies the entire central wing of the palace. The second level contains most public and ceremonial spaces including two guestrooms and bathrooms, drawing room, music room, kitchen and dining room. Located on the third topmost level are the intimate spaces for the Doge's household as well as some political spaces adjacent the Ducal suite. Rooms on the third level include three additional bedrooms and bathrooms, the Ducal suite, library, game room, and audience chamber.
