This is a unique property lovingly developed over many years by the close assistant of Carlo Scarpa, perfect in every detail yet so much more than just a 'museum'.

This apartment lives and breathes Scarpa - it is simply divine.

What attracted us to this property

When we view a new property we are focussing principally on our international clientele and their wish lists, for example historic features, outside space, water access, great views and light. Location is always a consideration, but if we find a truly unique property we may decide it's still worth a look whatever the area - Venice is so small really! The potential for restoration is often a plus, to achieve a truly personalised space. But at the end of the day we always ask ourselves this one deciding question: do we actually LIKE this property? If it ticks lots of boxes but doesn't feel right, we prefer not to take it on.

It was a real thrill for me to see this property - with notebooks still open on desks, interesting models around, kitchen implements casually left on worktops. It's living history at its best.  With two lovely top floor terraces and lift - it's the perfect architectural hideaway of anyone who knows the inimitable Scarpa style. 

Location

Castello

Castello is perhaps the most charming area of Venice, where tourism is fairly minimal. Although only a few minutes from San Marco, it is quiet and residential with a good local feel. Here buildings are more quaint and popular, often displaying towards Arsenal colourful laundry hanging above, giving a sense of busy human activity. It is the perfect area for anyone seeking an authentic Venetian experience and for foodies in the “know” who go there to dine in some of the city’s premier restaurants, such as Al Covo and Corte Sconta.
