We love a dreamy European artist abode and this one in Venice fits the bill nicely. Located in Dorsoduro, home to the city’s best art museums and many a historic church, the circa-1800 property offers 2,000 square feet of well-lit space with a charming mix of the old and new.
According to the listing, the apartment is owned by a “famous contemporary painter,” who has renovated the place, though glorious old bones like a wooden balustrade on the mezzanine and terracotta flooring still abound. The main attraction is the 750-square-foot central living area under soaring beamed ceilings.
A dining area and contemporary stainless steel kitchenette are tucked in under the mezzanine, which contains a second living area. It also leads to a cozy master bedroom under skylights. The property, on the market for about $1.5 million, has another bedroom tucked in on the ground floor, and three baths that feature ceramics by French designer Philippe Starck.
