Beloved childhood home of its distinguished artist owner whose grandfather built this wonderful and very dignified property in the 1920s, Ca’ Del Glicine – ‘House of the Wisteria’ – sleeps 10 in the lap of luxury within a refined and genteel setting of tall ceilings, pretty stuccoes, art deco parquet flooring and celebrated artwork.
Lovingly renovated with integrity and soul, and displaying all the hallmarks of impeccable taste and understated elegance throughout, Ca’ Del Glicine is on the 2nd floor reached by stairs.
Showcasing all the latest home comforts and first-rate facilities including sparkling new bathrooms, Wi-Fi internet connection, and luxurious bedrooms which are as spacious and welcoming as they are well-appointed, all rooms have individually controlled air-conditioning and radiate from a central inner hallway hung with original art, where a formal dining table for 10 sits beneath a gleaming chandelier.
The surrounding accommodation comprises –
• A gorgeous main sitting room in chic neutral colours with plump sofas for lounging, a handy separate bathroom, and glazed double doors opening onto a dreamy and romantic south-facing furnished terrace offering landside views to the spires of Santi Giovanni e Paolo and which, when in season, is clad in the lush and leafy wisteria the owner remembers as a boy
• A smart, brand new, fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with integrated appliances and a service bathroom to the side (w.c. and wash hand basin)
• 5 double bedrooms (all the doble beds can be made into twins – simply ask when booking) , each splendidly attired in plush fabrics and fine furnishings – 3 enjoying views over the ‘Rio De La Panada’ canal (1 with a balcony) and 1 with a balcony looking towards Campiello Widman
2 of the canal-facing bedrooms can be joined together to form a larger unit and all bedrooms have their own immaculately presented en-suite bathroom with large shower or bathtub with shower over
• A small personal gym with a top-of the-range running machine, exercise bike, weights machine and its own separate bathroom with shower
