The property comprises a principle villa, a Limonaia (lemon house building), dating to the same period and today a lived in residence, together with an agricultural annex, which was at one time home to the farmer. The large rectangular basin, the original of the nineteenth century, has today been transformed into a swimming pool.
The highlight of the property is, without doubt, revealed in the enormous surrounding parklands, work of a noted English landscape architect of the XIX century. Situated in the north area is a wonderful English garden, characterised by antique winding pathways with its original lateral water drains, it produces magnificent examples of evergreen and forest oaks and century old lime trees, as well as the ginko and two evergreen sequoias; further on, big camellia plants reach some twelve metres in height.
In between the gardens ornamental elements is the main pathway, an interesting gazebo with a wrought iron structure and wonderful mosaic floor, an ice-house behind the camellia grove, a curved basin and remains of a large basin in the shape of a heart specially built for Paolina.
The two smaller Italian gardens, one by the villa and the other close to the lemon house, were created during more recent times together with the large rectangular basin around the back of the woods, today transformed into a swimming pool.
