Exquisite views of Salute and the Grand Canal from this refined architectural apartment

Palazzetto Salute at a glance

This refined residence is situated on the etage noble of a palazzetto fronting the Grand Canal, with mesmerising views onto the Salute Church, the Guggenheim and the wider lagoon. Completely intriguing at every turn, from the ever changing Grand Canal light pouring through the apartment’s tall bronze windows and bouncing off gleaming terrazzo floors, through smooth marmorino plaster walls and delicate ceiling mouldings, to the sculptural and iconic Italian furniture collection from the ’50’s and ’60’s, you honestly may never want to leave.

Property Description

This truly unique 3-bedroom suite residence is only a few minutes from Piazza San Marco and the stylish boutiques of Via XXII Marzo. Situated on a discreet calle with water jetty for private boats, the Palazzetto Salute Grand Canal has elegant reception salons displaying a carefully curated collection of mid-century furniture from iconic Italian designers and architects. Some of the most resonant names include: Gio’ Ponti, Gardella, Franco Albini, Caccio Dominioni, Angelo Mangiarotti, Ico Parisi, Fontana Arte, Bruno Gambone and Marcello Fantoni. The overall effect of this exquisitely furnished home is beyond imagination. 

Palazzetto Salute Grand Canal is the ultimate place for couples or families wanting to experience Venice in total comfort and style. The residence is the result of a three-way collaboration between the owner, a leading Venetian  architect, and one of France’s top interior designers. Their work takes inspiration in the rational and clean design of Carlo Scarpa who is referenced in the sensuous choice of materials, from the shimmering terrazzo floors and creamy marmorino walls to the bronze-framed windows and doorways. Each of the three bathrooms is a masterpiece, with opulent marble slabs appearing to have been carved in one from floor to ceiling.

With the Guggenheim Museum, Salute Church, and Grand Canal in direct view, it’s also just short trip by foot or by boat across the canal to many of Venice’s important buildings. Walk to the Accademia Galleries, take a water taxi or vaporetto to the Basilica  di San Marco and the Doge’s Palace, wander around neighbourhood churches housing art masterpieces, stop for a coffee or spritz, and just people-watch.           
The common areas: the apartment’s foyer opens first onto the intimate “Salute” reading room with gothic windows beautifully framing the iconic view.  Moving effortlessly into the enormous main “Accademia” salon, which offers iconic views of the Grand Canal and, to the right, of the Accademia Bridge, guests are granted exclusive access to a sophisticated yet utterly relaxing and harmonious space. To the left of the Accademia is the Peggy salon, a dining room with inspiring views of the Guggenheim museum, where catered dinners can be arranged for dinners up to 14 people (on request).
The Master Suite:  moving towards the other end of the apartment from the main entrance area, guests access the Master bedroom (with king size bed) which overlooks the Grand Canal and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum. Doors open from both the entrance area and the Master Suite to the terrace. The en-suite bathroom and dressing room, with two large windows, is entirely finished in sage-green marble, and includes a fully enclosed separate double shower, separate WC, double basin, dressing robes, Aesop amenities and heated towel racks. The dramatic bathtub has been hewn from a singular slab of marble.       
The Loft Suite: the first guest bedroom overlooks the greenery of the courtyard below, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum and the Grand Canal. The king-size four poster iron bed has two twin mattresses (1m x 2m) which can be made up separately if requested, however the bed is not able to be divided. The adjoining bathroom is covered in precious marble, and boasts a double sized shower, a single basin with Aesop amenities, and heated towel racks.     
The Twin Suite: the second guest bedroom has two single beds (90 x 2m) which can be put together with a mattress topper on request, a convenient workspace by the window and a large Apple TV. The en-suite bathroom boasts floor to ceiling marble, double sized shower and single basin with Aesop amenities.
All bed and bath linens in all rooms by Frette, with slick pure linen bedcovers in beige.

Kitchen: The ultra stylish galley-style kitchen is very well equipped, with Gaggenau oven and hob, maxi-sized fridge with integragted ice-dispenser, and all the items a chef or good cook would require for an upscale dinner party.

Ann-Marie's comment: What can we say? Truly a unique and stunning property in Venice - a contemporary dream in the most wonderfully spectacular position possible. The owner has raised the bar in the city to create a beautiful home of the highest possible standards, literally breathtaking in every sense. A property for the most exacting of clients seeking luxury in a contemporary setting.

San Marco

This is the historical centre of the town with Piazza San Marco at its very heart and with Venice’s most coveted museums: Palazzo Ducale and Museo Correr. The buildings in this area of town are all on a fabulously grand scale. You will find most of the designer shops and luxury brands around here, including a number of fine jewellers and designers hidden among the colonnades of the piazza itself. The best time to visit is in the evening when the sun sets over the curved domes of St. Mark’s Basilica and live music sweeps across the piazza, defined by Napoleon as the “finest drawing room in Europe”.
