Chaeau Venetia was built late in the 18th century by a notable family of the city, this stunning mansion has been left abandoned for sometime. I believe its last use was as a hotel.
Around 1930 it was split into seperate properties but was later on combined back to one building.
Chateau Venetia is a protected building and it was purchased around ten years ago by a group of French business men. They had even purchased 18th century furniture for the restoration project the plan is to make it into an art venue for exhibitions and studios.
The project has been on hold for sometime now due to planning issues. Hopefully these can be resolved soon and this abandoned chateau can be restored to its former glory.
