Casa il Glicine is a delightful, elegant property in a neighbourhood 5 minutes from Florence called Impruneta. It has a spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding hills and was part of an ancient historical estate where the Antinori family (famous for wine production) lived for 300 years. The entrance opens into a private driveway which leads to the property. The villa is distinguished by a neat and well-kept garden (250 sqm) with a panoramic porch equipped with a table for 6 people: the porch is covered with wisteria (Il Glicine) which characterises the entire property.
Outside the gate there is a parking area shared with the neighbouring property with 2 parking spaces.
While the outside area has a rustic touch, the interiors (250 sqm) are characterized by the fusion of modern and classic and a great attention to details: the entrance opens into the main living room (15 sqm) furnished with wooden table, chest of drawers, leather sofa, flat TV, a sound surround system and a fireplace.
In the right wing you will initially find a secondary kitchen with a refrigerator and an ice maker and then the main kitchen, bright and spacious, overlooking the garden and equipped with a dining table for 6 people. Follows the lounge area with a fireplace, a double bedroom, also overlooking the garden, and the bathroom with a shower. The bedroom can be used exclusively with the bathroom, as a suite, thanks to the doors that separate the kitchen from remaining area.
In the left wing of the villa the hallway with a wall bookcase leads to two double bedrooms with respective bathrooms, one of which is en-suite.
Comfortable and fully equipped villa, Casa il Glicine is perfect for medium and long term stays for all those who would like to get acquainted with the city of Florence, its surroundings and the nearby Chianti area. Please mind the presence of an adjacent property in the vicinity.
