The villa is situated in a splendid position on top of a hill overlooking the unmistakable panorama of the Crete Senesi with its rolling hills covered in a geometrical patchwork of typical Tuscan crops. Built in the late 1400’s as a country residence for the noble Sienese Malavolti family, the property features a late-Renaissance style. Its construction is attributed to the signature style of one of the most famous architects of the Italian Renaissance, Baldassarre Peruzzi. Rich in historical and artistic value, the villa was built in exposed red brick and is spread over three levels for a total area of 1200 square meters. Well maintained are the original ceilings and the roof which is made with oak beams and terracotta as well as some of the original floors in sixteenth-century brickwork. The central staircase in travertine is also original and well preserved. The internal rooms of the villa are spacious with plenty of natural light; each part of the house is rich in detail creating an atmosphere that is both elegant and homely, exclusive and welcoming. Externally, in front of the house on the north side is the Italian garden, one of the most valuable features of the property, redesigned several times over the centuries always on the basis of the original wall structures which still exist and are well preserved. The current botanical garden was created by a Sienese professor of botany as well as an alchemist who lived there in the first half of the 19th century. The garden slopes down and connects with the cultivated area and then to the oak woodland owned by the residence. To the north, the garden is fenced by five parallel rows of centuries-old cypress trees arranged in a semicircle; majestic and imposing, these cypresses create an exceptional choreography leading the eye towards Siena with its great towers in the distance. The property is completed by the beautiful swimming pool surrounded by greenery and about two hectares of land. A center of great charm and undoubted historical value, Buonconvento – a name derived from the Latin “bonus conventus” and meaning of happy, fortunate community – is a member of the prestigious association “The most beautiful villages in Italy”. Distances: Siena 25 km – Montalcino 10 km – Montepulciano 25 km – Pienza 20 km – San Gimignano 50 km – Volterra 55 km – Arezzo 50 km

      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.

      • Can I obtain income from a seaside apartment?

        Yes. You can use the purchased property yourself for holidays and lease it to tourists for the rest of the time. To avoid the hassle of finding tenants and cleaning the property, it’s a wise idea to hire a management company to do all the work – these services usually cost about 20% of the rent. Take into account the length of the tourist season in the location you choose: in certain regions it will be easy to rent apartments out all year round, while in others it might only be possible to do so during the high season.

      • 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.
