The Clock House was built by the Orsetti family between the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century to accommodate the stables, the kitchens and other service areas. The name derives from the elevated position of the six-hour clock, typical of many villas in Tuscany at the time.
Comparing it with the historic plans, it seems that the building did not undergo any particular changes during Elisa Baciocchi’s rule, while architectural work was overseen by Giuseppe Marchelli. A new structure was added, however, which encircled the pre-existing building.
The restoration of the Clock House, was commissioned by the current owners in 2016. The wide building features a portico and an elevated loggia with columns above it. The main Villa and the Clock House are connected by an underground tunnel, still in existence today.
