The house has been lovingly restored with attention to detail and preserving original floors, doors, ceilings and murals yet offering all modern comforts such as an upgraded electrical system and underfloor heating on the ground floor.
The original front doors, which are of an unusual design with glass panels and grills to allow circulation of air, open onto an inviting hallway with wainscoting. There is a salon to the left and a dining room to the right, both of which have impressive mouldings and ceiling roses, as well as marble fireplaces.
At the end of the hallway, a door opens onto a kitchen and another, onto the courtyard garden and pool.

To the front and side of the house is a barn over two floors of 165² each, accessed through large barn doors. It can also be accessed from inside the house via a door in the hallway which gives access to a utility room in the barn.
