The villa architecture in the Serbian-Byzantine style, tasteful but quite modestly furnished.

Vila “Jela” was the property of the king but he was a guest at his friend and personal attorney Jovan Todorovic, a villa was named after the wife of I John Is. The original purpose of the building has changed over the years, but generally without major reconstruction works in the interior. Exterior has changed in recent years, the facade is arranged, changed color, returned to the original white, changed gates and upgraded masts for the flags.

The present state of the building is unenviable and used inappropriately. It houses a community center and a police station. Another remarkable example of the destruction of cultural property and the use of the wrong purposes.
