The Villa,comfortable and elegant,was built in the second part of the XVII century ,even though there are traces of a preexistent building dated XV century . The Murray family ,owner of the Villa between XIX and XX century, made changes and improvements both in the main building and in the park . At the beginning of the XX century both the beautiful stone flight of steps and the magnificent polychrome coffered ceilings were built as well as the doors (original) still maintaining the ancient iron locks and the precious bronze handles .
The “pietra serena” ,according to the tuscan customs,is present in all the Villa : from the door jambs to the stairs,the skirting boards and the decorations of the floor . During the restoration of the Villa has been made a careful work of reclamation of all the original components ,but assuring the maximum level of safety and comfort. The southern side of the Villa has been enriched with a modern pool surrounded by a solarium of hand made “cotto imprunetino” with dowels of “pietra serena” .
The park,created at the beginning of the XIX century by a preexistent owner, was transformed by the Murray : the english romantic style prevailed over the garden inherited from the XVIII century; the wood was enlarged and became more important because of the introduction of numerous exotic plants . Even today it’s possible to admire a rich bothanic variety : stately cedars of Atlas mountains,palms,woods of high bamboo, age-old bushes of box and the unfailing cypresses .
