A rare and fabulous find on the isle of Giudecca – a tastefully presented 2 bedroom/3 bathroom waterside gem blessed with captivating views of Venice across the expansive Giudecca Canal and a glorious garden all of your own!
Resting directly on the ‘fondamenta’ next to the 9th Century Church of Sant’ Eufemia and within steps of names forever synonymous with Venice including the delightful white canopies of Harry’s Dolci and the historic Fortuny factory, Ca’ Dei Fiori (otherwise known as the ‘House of Flowers’) sleeps four on the first floor of the property.
Close to the vaporetto (water bus) stop at Palanca connec...ting Giudecca with Venice in a matter of minutes and entered by way of an external staircase rising from a beautifully maintained internal courtyard, the light and fully air-conditioned apartment comprises a smart and up-to-the-minute style brushed stainless steel kitchen with breakfast bar, white cabinetry and a dining area with trendy Danish retro-style furniture which in turn leads to the apartment’s main sitting area. Featuring the same cool hardwood flooring as the kitchen/dining area, the sitting space with Wi-Fi internet connection is attractively and comfortably furnished in chic colours and has three attractive sofas for rest and relaxation plus three large picture windows framing the beautiful views of the garden, one of which leads out onto an external spiral staircase winding down to the terrace and flourishing flowery landscape below.
Bright, south-facing and a sight to behold, the garden has both a formal paved area edged with classical statuary and a garden table and chairs beneath a parasol for sunny days, while lying beyond is a grassy carpet of lush green and a horticultural haven for all manner of plants including fragrant lavender and rosemary, the delicate colours of hydrangea and an abundance of ‘alberi’ including apricot and palm….
In terms of sleeping accommodation, there are two modern bedrooms which are pared down and stylish in their simplicity – a master with double bed in which the wall-mounted tv comes a poor second to its mesmerising canal views! and which has a walk-in wardrobe, further ample storage and its own en-suite bathroom with large tiled shower and modern fittings. And to the middle of the apartment a twin with two day-bed style single beds and a smart separate bathroom with bathtub and shower over.
Completing the apartment and just inside its entrance is a further bathroom (attractively tiled and with shower), while a laundry room on the ground floor of the property (situated just off the property’s internal courtyard and accessed from the apartment by descending the external staircase) has a washing machine for even further convenience.
A highly desirable apartment for four balancing fabulous canal views and a gorgeous garden too.
Close to a number of small local shops and a Coop supermarket near Palanca and within moments of restaurants such as La Palanca, Trattoria Do Mori, Ai Cacciatore, Osteria Ae Botti and Altanella with its shaded outdoor terrace.
A wonderful canal-side walk taking in marvelous views on Venice to the restaurants of the Cipriani at Giudecca’s eastern end.
