The building, which was constructed during the second half of the Nineteenth century, has façades of classical composition, characterised by a symmetrical layout of the openings on the first and second floors.
Like the small Sofia Villa, Crastan Villa was also modernised by Galileo Chini in 1920 in keeping with the new Art Nouveau styles. As a matter of fact, the classical façades were enriched with ceramic decorations produced by Chini in Borgo San Lorenzo. Tiles of a stylised floral theme enrich the fascia below the eaves and majolica depicting small cupids are spaced between the first floor openings.
The building is a private property and cannot be visited inside.
