The property boasts a large park with a grove, a pond and a large lawn, with two residential buildings: the main building, a two-storey villa with turret, and a barchessa (a former stable-cum-hay-barn), both located in the southwestern part of the property. The northeastern part of the property contains a swimming pool and a kitchen garden with fruit trees.The barchessa also has two-stories, with a brick and masonry load-bearing structure and a hipped roof with hip tiles. It faces the park and the multi-lobed fountain with waterlilies. The building has a rectangular plan and a façade with 16th-century influences, with a portico of 5 large arched openings, the central one being a wider depressed arch. The oculi in the upper part of the arched openings lend a rhythm to the open space on the first floor.
Potential for enlargement: around 1.800 m³ (around 600 m²). The property can be extended or developed for the following purposes: residential use (although dividing the villa into separate units without compromising its physical and functional characteristics might be a challenge); tourist use, creating at least 4 suites in the villa, with bathrooms, living rooms and amenities on the ground floor, and around 14 bedrooms in the barchessa; and healthcare use. In particular, given the size and the features of both the park and the buildings, as outlined in the attached plan, a co-housing system for the elderly could be set up, both for self-sufficient residents (in the barchessa area and part of the villa), and for those with Alzheimer’s-related needs. Alzheimer’s care requires structured facilities with dedicated protected environments and walkways, including outdoors. These approaches are beneficial for Alzheimer’s patients, and such arrangements are also currently highly sought-after for targeted research studies.
The building’s eclectic architectural composition draws inspiration from the Tuscan Renaissance style, with exposed brickwork and white stone cornices accentuating the Gothic-inspired windows. It comprises two volumes with a staggered rectangular base, two-storeyed, with a hipped roof with hip tiles. The crenellated turret in the middle of the roof encloses a small terrace accessed from inside.
