The villa ( 1.357 sqm plus 246 sqm porch, colonnades and terraces) is built in a delightful style blending classical and early 20th century architecture.
The face towards the mountains features a splendid courtyard with formal marble pool, fountain, and bronze statues including a frog spitting water. Next to this fountain is a Thermal "Caledarium" (roman style hot bath)

Ground floor: Four elegant sitting rooms, large entrance hall with magnificent staircase made in stone and wrought iron, large dining room, large kitchen, bathrooms etc.
First floor: Seven bedrooms, four large bathrooms, terrace.
Basement: Vaulted in brick, various cellars and service rooms, including the ancient kitchens.
Attic, terrace, turret: The attic has several rooms used as service staff accommodation. A turret with a terrace crowns the roof, with a unique and beautiful view of the lake below.
Other buildings: In the park there are three buildings which can be renovated: The guardian's house on 2 floors and two greenhouses. Approval is also available to construct another building of 350 sqm.
The current owning family bought the villa in 1918. Though maintained over the years, the villa clearly requires works of modernization.
