The Villa Glicine is an historic villa located on the outskirts of Florence restored to the highest standard with panoramic views over the hills of the Chianti. Located just 2km from the charming town of Impruneta, ten minutes from the A1 motorway and 25 minutes from central Florence.
After being sought after by the luxury rental market, the villa is now for sale. Considered one of the most beautiful properties in the surrounding area, due to a lengthy and careful restoration process which returned the villa to its former glory.
The villa’s accommodation is spread over three floors, totalling 600 sqm:-
On the lower ground floor there are two bedrooms with private bathrooms, a large games room with impressive stone vaulted ceiling, a reception room leading onto the terrace and a staff apartment with separate entrance.
The ground floor provides a large entrance hall with seating area, a study, kitchen with fireplace leading onto the outside dining, a family sitting room, dining room, and guest bathroom.
On the first floor there is an impressive master bedroom suite, three further bedrooms with shared bathroom and a large reception room with kitchenette leading onto a panoramic terrace. Should additional accommodation be required this reception room could easily be converted into a bedroom/bathroom suite and there is planning in place to convert the attic.
The grounds, covering just under 1 hectare, are walled and fully fenced with three separate entrances, parking and garaging providing security and privacy from the neighbouring houses. An avenue of mature trees leads to the main facade of the villa with lawned areas either side. In addition there is a swimming pool, vegetable patch and various seating areas to enjoy the sunshine and views at different times of day.
Property for sale around the outskirts of Florence rarely have a location as good as Villa Glicine's. The photos illustrate that the property enjoys a truly Tuscan view, overlooking olivegroves and rolling hills, however they unfortunately do not do justice to the beaty of the panormama which really must be seen in person. Although set amongst olivegroves, vineyards and forests, the house is only 2km from the prestigious Florence suburb of Impruneta, and ten minutes from the A1 motorway. Impruneta has an historic centre, and offers all the fundamental services and amneties, as well as a charming weekly market in the town square. The city of Florence is a 25min drive into the centre.
