Features
  • 3-floor building
  • Built in 1600

In Orta in Piedmont, for sale a splendid historic residence from the 1600s overlooking Lake Orta. This unique property is a former monastery, which over time has become an elegant private home. The family of the current owners fell in love with the beauty of the property and the wonderful view of the island of San Giulio, an important tourist attraction on Lake Orta. The structure of the building is made of blocks of local stone and Baveno pink granite, typical materials for building period villas. The position on the top of the hill dominates the lake. In the vicinity of the property for sale, there are the chapels of the Via Crucis del Sacro Monte di Orta. The property is located within an area of ​​8,000 square meters, partly in the park, partly in the lawn and partly in the woods. The floral essences are those typical of Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore, in fact they are distributed among magnolias, azaleas, camellias and hydrangeas. Who knows how to appreciate the beauty of nature and silence, finds in this characteristic property an ideal place for reflection and relaxation. The internal distribution of the spaces remained the original one. The charm of history and tradition has been maintained. The internal details, for example the terracotta floors, the stone fireplaces and other details reveal the charm of the 17th century. The roof structure is formed by chestnut beams, while the roof is in the typical stone structure (piode). Internally, the surface measures over 2,200 square meters, divided into 19 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and a master apartment. Everything revolves around a cloister, typical of monastic structures. The maintenance conditions are good, even if the whole property needs an update in the systems. Adjacent to the property, there is the beautiful Church of Saints Nicolao and Francesco, a place that welcomes many couples from Italy and from all over the world, who intend to get married in a place full of charm.

      FAQs

      • Can I get a mortgage abroad?

        It depends on the country. For example, German banks willingly offer mortgages to foreigners at 1.5-2 % per annum with LTV up to 70%. Spain offers less favourable terms: the minimum rate for foreigners is 2.5% per annum. The situation is different in Greece: although the law does not prohibit banks from issuing loans, in practice, Greek banks don’t issue loans to local nor foreign property buyers. You can learn about the mortgage terms in your preferred country by contacting Tranio’s local agents.

      • How does the purchase procedure work?

        The purchase procedure depends on the country where you buy property. Generally, after choosing a property you need to sign a preliminary agreement with the seller and carry out a due diligence of the property by checking the relevant documents and the property's technical condition. After that, all parties sign the sales agreement and the notary registers the transaction. As a rule, the purchase registration costs amount to approximately 10% of the property price.

      • Can a residence permit be obtained by buying property?

        In some countries it is possible. Residence-for-property purchase programmes are known as Golden Visas programmes. Greece, Spain, Latvia, and Portugal offer the most popular Golden Visas in Europe. The Greek residence permit is the cheapest and can be obtained by buying a property worth at least €250,000, while organising all of the documents costs about €19,000. Certain countries offer citizenship to property buyers — for example, an investor can get their hands on a Cypriot passport by buying a property worth at least €2M.

      • How does Tranio make money if your service is free for the clients?

        We share the commission, which the buyer or the seller (depending on the country) pays to our partners — foreign real estate agencies. The price of this service is the same as if you contacted the agency directly — this is an important condition and applies to all of our partnership agreements.

      • Who guarantees the transaction security?

        The transaction security is guaranteed by the notary who draws up the sales agreement and checks the information on the previous and current owners of the property, any outstanding restrictions, mortgage, and third-party encumbrances. Tranio is not responsible for the parties involved in the transaction.
