The villa was designed by Architect Michele Busiri Vici in very close conjunction with the owner. It differs from his other villas because the owner insisted on large rooms, grand windows, and expansive interior spaces.
The villa was built between 1963 and 1966. So the property totals 4000 square meters and the interior of the villa totals about 350 square meters, not counting the many terraces.
The villa is organized as follows:
Top Floor: enormous domed study with fireplace (which could also be used as a large master bedroom); "secret" large locked closet between study and staircase; central den with fireplace; large bedroom with walk-in closet and bathroom with shower.
Main Floor: large eat-in kitchen; kitchen closet; small single bedroom; bathroom with tub and shower; entryway to front door with closet; large dining room; triple living room with fireplace; large double-sided walk-in closet; master bathroom with tub and shower; master bedroom with fireplace. (All the fireplaces work)
Lower Level: small full kitchen; bathroom with tub and shower; long hallway with built-in shelves at entry; large hallway closet; sun-drenched living room with air conditioning; bedroom with walk-in closet; enormous dry storage area.
