The Sweetest Venice Hideaway, $2MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 532 Rialto Avenue, Venice
What: A small-scale triumph of Boho Chic, this renovated, 3-bed, 2-bath cottage was originally built in 1923, one of many small houses on small lots that went up in the neighborhood’s first building boom. Instead of being a tear-down (the current fate of so many Venice houses) this one has been sensitively expanded upwards and polished with an eclectic, easy sensibility.
The spaces all have high ceilings, with a direct connection to a series of enchanting outdoor spaces, making the house seem much larger than it actually is.
The master suite occupies the second level and has access to the roof deck.
What We Love: Rooftop decks have become a tradition in Venice, and these days, no new house would be built without one. This one’s been framed out into a pergola, creating the perfect, romantic spot to watch a sunset punctuated by palm trees.
