The two-storeyd stone building is simple, almost square in plan, and has a pitched, tiled roof. Decorative horizontal bands are used on the exterior surfaces of the walls, under the roof and between the two floors. The building has a large, fenced yard, both in the front and the back. In the backyard, a characteristic postico and a marble fountain are still preserved. Today it is used as a primary school.
