The villa mansion has a typical 19th-century style and dominates Sansepolcro from the hill. The current look was given to the building with a restoration in the first two decades of the 20th century on the instructions of Luigi Fatti (hence the name). The façade of the villa has a Neoclassical style, with the lower floors highlighted by ashlar (bugnato). The upper floors, on the other hand, have a striking resemblance with late-Renaissance palaces in Rome and Florence, with half-columns, epistyles and gabled windows leading onto a panoramic balcony.
Internally, the building has large and bright halls with superb finishes which were carefully preserved and valorized during the restoration of the 1990s. Other features include frescoes, coffered ceilings, original stone fireplaces, marble and parquet floors and many more details which give the mansion a refined and luxurious look.
The breathtaking veranda and the rooftop terrace were built when Luigi Fatti first restored and reworked the villa.
This villa in Tuscany stands in a 4.3-hectare plot of land which is covered for the most part with a beautiful English style park (3.0 ha). The villa has two entrances: the historic one is a typical cypress-lined avenue closed by a gate; the second one, more recent, winds up the hill and leads to several parking areas before reaching the rear entrance of the villa.
A short distance from the villa is a tennis court.
The remaining surface area of roughly 1.3 hectares is dotted by 360 olive trees producing excellent extra-virgin olive oil.
The beautiful and lush Italian gardens, located both on the front and the rear of the villa, has been carefully recovered and landscaped between 1992 and 1993 when the whole complex was restored under the supervision of architect Lucina Caravaggi. The original look of the garden was of paramount importance and many of its features have been preserved and/or recreated, among which are gravelled and paved walkways, hedges, terraces, rare trees and fountains.
