An exquisite and comfortable piano nobile apartment opposite the Gritti with Grand Canal views

San Marco, Venice

A simple stunning and dreamy property in a top location, directly across from the famous Gritti Palace hotel and with lovely side views towards the Grand Canal.  Newly and highly sympathetically restored with beautiful marble bathrooms and all modern conveniences such as integral air conditioning, entry phone etc, this is essentially a beautiful and highly decorative historic property of the highest level as well as being a highly comfortable home, where much thought has gone in to creating a relaxed very private space. Amazing chandeliers, terrazzo flooring and stunning antique furniture complete the ultimate historic experience of this wonderful property

The apartment is on the piano nobile of the lovely 17th century Palazzo Grimani and has both main campo and convenient rear access at ground level. Two half flights of stairs lead up to the main double door entrance from where you enter into another world,  an elegant and classic entrance leading on to a huge central salon with all original stucchi, frescoed ceilings, and ancient mirrors. Extensive french windows give onto a long balcony with wonderful Grand Canal views to the right.

To the left of the central salon is the stunning formal dining room with spectacular central chandelier.  The original stucchi wall decorations show musical instruments, so we think this was originally the sala di musica of the palazzo. From here a lovely intimate breakfast area leads to a very modern and well equipped kitchen.  There is a guest wc at the end of this corridor

The master bedroom has a stunning antique four poster bed, with en suite bathroom and dressing room.  The second bedroom is furnished in Biedermeyer style and has an equally delightful dressing room as well as access to a bathroom with excellent walk in shower. There is a further divine dressing room with chaise longue, mezzanine sitting areas and additional sleeping spaces for up to 6 persons. There are 4 guest facilities in all. More information on request.

An exceptional property of the highest level which is already proving to be much in demand for discerning guests
