The VILLA has the typical layout of the noble residences of the '500, of which it still retains its appearance. It originally had a rectangular planimetric structure to which two lateral bodies were subsequently added, which gave the plant the current U-shape facing upwards. The building is on two levels plus a basement. It is characterized by a slender central tower, with squared openings with large displays in pietra serena on all the facades and a central portal finished with ashlar on the two main elevations. The side facing the valley dominates the Val di Pesa from a privileged hill position. The opposite side is characterized by a large courtyard paved in alberese stone, enclosed on three sides and enhanced by a double order of loggia. On the ground floor there are three large halls with wooden coffered ceilings, rooms for study, service rooms, hallways, corridors, kitchen and a beautiful frescoed chapel. The upper floor houses eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a living room and corridors and closets.
