Adjacent to the park, the imposing stone house benefits from southern exposure, high ceilings and French windows. Moreover, it includes molding, hardwood and marble flooring, wrought iron work and frescoes.
The main living area offers 8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 5 WCs. Three private apartments each provide an additional bed and bath. The ground floor includes vast living and dining rooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a library and billiard room.
