Inferno apart­ment goes on sale

Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Front Page -

THE stun­ning Venice apart­ment which features in the new Dan Brown thriller Inferno is ex­pected to fetch £ 4m when it goes un­der the ham­mer to­day.

The spec­tac­u­lar canal- side Pi­ano No­bile apart­ment, set be­hind an orig­i­nal Gothic façade, is one of Venice’s most cov­eted prop­er­ties.

Dat­ing back to the 15th cen­tury, it has di­rect ac­cess to the wa­ter­way, an in­cred­i­ble re­cep­tion room, din­ing area, large kitchen, bal­conies, three en- suite bed­rooms, two fur­ther bed­rooms and bath­rooms.

It served as the dra­matic back­drop for scenes with Tom Hanks and Felic­ity Jones in Inferno and goes up for auc­tion to­day with Concierge Auc­tions. A TWO-BED­ROOM flat built on the site where a num­ber of Al­fred Hitchock movies were shot in Gains­bor­ough Stu­dios has just gone on the mar­ket.

The two- bed­room Is­ling­ton apart­ment comes with a large sculp­ture of Hitch­cock’s head in the court­yard.

The apart­ment sits on the site of the orig­i­nal film stu­dio where Hitch­cock’s first sus­pense thriller, The Lodger, was shot.

He re­turned to film his later mas­ter­piece The Lady Van­ishes and a num­ber of 1940s melo­dra­mas were also pro­duced there.

Now a con­tem­po­rary de­vel­op­ment, a twobed­room apart­ment in the block, which of­fers panoramic views over­look­ing Re­gents Canal is listed for £ 895,000.
