If my returned JSON is of the format as mentioned below, how do i get the Value "Project.Description"? using JQuery?

                                               
REST Request

function getitems() {
    var url = "http://sc-spstd-dev.mysite.com/it/PM/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('IT Dashboard Project')/items?$filter=Id eq 39";

        url: url,
        method: "GET",

                $("#dataholder").html(JSON.stringify(data));
                //success(data.d.results[0]);
            }
            else {

                alert("failure: " + JSON.stringify(data));
