GENERAL CONDITIONS OF THE BUILDINGS AND STATE OF THE FINISHINGS The Villa, which has been recently partially renovated, is in excellent structural condition and, as far as the ground and first floors are concerned, the finish is also excellent. The whole structure presents important architectural elements which confirm the historical authenticity and its importance over the years. The vaulted ceilings, the stone floors, the frescoes, the door and window frames are witness to the past and present life of the building. The part that has not been recently renovated is however in good condition and here, too, are vaulted ceilings, wooden beamed and brick ceilings and stone floors.The Farmhouse attached to the Villa, on the other hand, has been completely restored, using antique materials and techniques such as the construction of ceilings with wooden beams and bricks and stone floors. All the systems are modern. The four apartments constructed in the farmhouse have never been inhabited. LAND: The 2 acres of park land belonging to the property are totally fenced in and, besides being an interesting example of an Italian garden, the park is also valuable botanically with paths lined with box and innumerable varieties of plants and flowers that create a green architectural frame for the Villa.PRESENT USE AND POTENTIAL: The property has been used up until recently as a private residence. Successively the owner company presented a renovation project for a guest structure of the type Period Residence and obtained the permit. They have also obtained a permit from the Ministry of Cultural Heritage as it is a tied-up property, as well as the building concession. This concession also provides for the change of the use of the property even though in the case of Period residences this change of use is not requested. Given the characteristics of the property, the restoration project begun by the present owner and the strategic location between various important artistic and tourist centres, the property is suitable for use as a private residence or as a guest accommodation structure as well as a structure in which to organize meetings and events.
