The sleeping area (5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms) is located on the first floor, which also houses other rooms, designated for ulterior uses such as: a library, billiard room and screening room, as well as the stairs.
In the attic there are several rooms yet to be finished, as well as a studio apartment for guests.

A short drive from the villa, on the south side, is a rectangular building that once housed the stables and has since been repurposed as a limonaia, in good condition.
On the west side rises a two storey building, once used as a caretaker's house, in fairly good structural condition but which needs interior work and a new roof.
The villa sits at the centre of an extensive "giardino all'italiana", with high trees and terraced areas; part of the private land is devoted to growing chestnut trees.
