Luxury one bedroom apartment for rent in Venice with terrace, located on the second floor of a historical Palazzo (without elevator) built by the Foscarini family and part of their possessions until the fall of the Italian Republic, nestled on the Canale Santa Margherita and facing the beautiful façade of the Church of Santa Maria dei Carmini in Dorsoduro.
This elegant 70 sq.mt apartment is located in a building which still boasts a number of remarkable artistic and architectural features as testimonials of its noteworthy history: found both on the exterior of the building and within the individual apartments.
A grand archway and charming internal courtyard, with one side looking onto the park and the other looking onto the small orchard gardens of the surrounding buildings, lead to the apartment. The day area offers a large and bright living room, with impressive beamed and moulded ceilings (five meters high), a fine inlaid marble fireplace, a large double sofa bed and a dining table for 6 people. The room also has two large windows and a French window which leads to a terrace overlooking the garden. The separate kitchen is modern and fully equipped with all necessities, including a microwave oven and a dishwasher.
The sleeping area presents an elegant double bedroom with a double bed and a large closet, a bathroom with bathtub and shower and a small “mezzanine” room (reachable through a little staircase), furnished with an armchair which can be converted into a single bed and a with a small closet, a perfect hideaway room for reading or relaxing.
The apartment has that traditional Venetian atmosphere which renders it cosy and welcoming. It has been decorated and studied so as to make it attractive and pleasant, offering every necessary comfort without sacrificing the original period features.
The apartment is located in Dorsoduro, a very well known area, loved by Venetians and visitors as well for its wealth of historical monuments and attractions and for the fact that it remains a genuine “lived-in” area of the city. Furthermore, the vicinity of this area to the main entry-points of the city combined with its handy access to the hub of the Grand Canal (between Rialto and the Accademia), makes this area a strategic point for those who wish to experience an authentic taste of what Venetian life really is.
The area is also very well served in terms of facilities: chemists’, Bbanks, post offices, supermarkets and specialist shops.
From the cultural point of view, apart from the School and Church of the Carmini (art works by Tiepolo, Lotto, Cima da Conegliano….) the apartment is very close to the Cà Rezzonico museum of 18th Century Venetian Arts, The Accademia Gallery, Palazzo Grassi, The Peggy Guggenheim Collection and much more, such as the Basilica of the Frari, with its extraordinary Tiziano and Bellini, The School of San Rocco (Tintoretto) and The Church of San Nicolò dei Mendicoli.
It is also close to the Rialto or Saint Mark's, by foot or by public transport. (There are boats every 10 minutes).
