The magnificent neoclassical interiors was done by Christopher Hobbs, who also restored the neo classical wing of Victoria and Albert Museum. The Moorish design part of the villa took four years to build. The impressive double dome, as well as a series of heavily ornamented, oriental style bedrooms and its Moorish style baths provide an exotic contrast from the rest of the building. Aside from two fabulous Roman design swimming pools which has been featured several times in various Architectural magazines and books, there is an indoor pool which has marble walls and red marble pillars with a barrel roof skylights, adjacent to the lemon courtyard.
