The Podere Glicine is the quintessential Tuscan farmhouse. Located in the heart of the Chianti area with wonderful views across the valley. This elegant stone house has been immaculately restored throughout.
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 and terraced gardens leading down the hillside to the infinity swimming pool. The house can be accessed both from the first floor and from the ground floor thanks to its position on the hillside. In total there are 350 m2 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 "salone" with huge stone fireplace as the centrepiece. The three main bedrooms lead off this room with a fourth bedroom accessed via the spiral staircase to the tower room. Three of the bedrooms have ensuite 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-frames, antique terracotta flooring, impressive fireplaces and exposed beams to the ceilings.
