Just 5 minutes from the charming village of Volpaia one finds the Podere Glicine nestled into the hillside. This prestigious Tuscan farmhouse takes the form of the traditional leopoldina with central tower with terraced gardens leading down the hillside to the infinity swimming pool. The house can be accessed both on the first floor and from the ground floor thanks to its positioning into the hillside. In total there are 350 sq.m of floor area.
On the ground floor one enters a bright and airy living room which leads through an arch into the study and into the dining area. The kitchen is truly Tuscan, warm and inviting, with its rustic charm. A cellar leads off the kitchen for storage of wine and food.
To the first floor one finds the impressive principal lounge with huge stone fireplace as the centre piece. The three principal bedrooms lead off this room with a fourth bedroom accessed via the spiral staircase to the ‘tower room’. Three of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with a further bathroom on each of the ground and first floors. A fifth bedroom is found on the ground floor which could be used for staff accommodation or guests.
The house has been restored by its architect owner with the finest attention to detail. Every original feature has been restored and maintained such as the pietra serena stairs and door-surrounds, antique terracotta flooring, impressive fireplaces and exposed beams to the ceilings.
Surrounding the property there are two hectares of land which includes the panoramic pool area, approximately 50 olive trees to produce oil annually and also the possibility to convert and extend the existing barn (65 sq.m) into a games room or small guest apartment.
Being located in the heart of the Chianti area there are a wealth of villages and towns to explore. Principally Volpaia is under 5 minutes from the house and Radda under 10 minutes. Florence and Siena can be reached in 50 minutes.
