The Guggenheim is a picturesque Venice apartment with one of the most fabulous views on the Grand Canal that you can find, located in the most exclusive area of Dorsoduro.

It is found at the 2nd and 3rd floor of a charming historical building facing the Grand Canal, right next to the famous Peggy Guggenheim Collection, halfway between the Accademia Bridge and Basilica della Salute.

The shared entrance at the ground floor opens on a lovely private courtyard (private property of the ground floor apartment) with a so called "vera da pozzo", the sculptured white stone private ancient well, used in the past centuries to get drinkable freshwater. The entire building is very quiet as there are only two other units that are rarely inhabited. At the second floor, the original entrance of the apartment showcases an elegant handmade mirrored cloakroom that leads to a central room.

On its right wing can be found the master bedroom (with queen size bed) and a twin bedroom (with two single beds), both with en-suite bathroom (one with bathtub, the other with shower), the former facing north on the Grand Canal with a spectacular view, the latter facing south with a lovely balcony overlooking the gardens. On the left wing can be found a spacious and very relaxing living room with Grand Canal view and an office corner.

On the attic level there is a small but well-equipped kitchen with all the basic appliances, a dining room equipped with an extensible dining table that fits maximum 6 people, often used as the third bedroom with twin beds, plus a third older bathroom. The real treat is the panoramic terrace with 360 degrees view that is highly functional being close to the kitchen, perfect for romantic candlelight dinners. This “wintergarden” has windows on every side, therefore it is sheltered for the colder season or the hottest days. You could spend entire days admiring the beauty of Venice from this privileged spot!

The excellent location and view of this house is only part of the reason why we are so in love with it, in fact the interior design is elegant and refined, crafted by a well-known designer who used to live here. There are all the most important amenities including air conditioning in every room, Wi-Fi internet connection, big flat-screen TV, DVD player, Hi-Fi, washing machine, dishwasher, oven, etc... The only limit is the accessibility being a 2nd and 3rd floor with no lift.
