This splendid castle, originally from 1200, is the result of the careful restoration work carried out by the Owners in collaboration with the Superintendency of Cultural Heritage of Lombardy, which made it possible to transform the abandoned building into a unique luxury home, bringing it back to its ancient charm, and today is classified like Italian national monument enjoying the advantageous artistic and historical protections. The castle consists of a main house of 750 square meters, with an elevator that leads up to the top of the tower and a secondary house, located in a side of the castle, inserted in an ancient nineteenth-century park, expertly planted with refined essences. On the ground floor is the entrance, which is accessed from the large private courtyard, a large double living room with fireplace, vaulted ceilings, overlooking the garden; studio with independent entrance from the court; dining room; large kitchen with fireplace, oven and breakfast nook; service bathroom. Upstairs is three bedrooms each with its own private bathroom and a balcony overlooking the courtyard. On the second floor, in the crenellated tower, is the master suite with access to the private terrace, equipped with large private space and bathroom. Finally, on the top floor, the roof terrace, accessible also by elevator, from which is possible enjoy the surrounding landscape. The property includes the basement, connected directly to the garage of 90 square meters, consisting of a large tavern of 50 square meters, the characteristic cellars with vaulted ceilings and a bathroom. The dependance, of about 100 square meters, an integral part of the castle with independent access, is composed of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room on the mezzanine, cellar and parking space in the castle garage. The high quality furnishings and antiques, many of which date back to the 1600’s, can be purchased together with the propriety, subject to evaluation; the villa also has four perfectly functioning fireplaces. The village of Gorle, near the course of the river Serio, has Roman origins. The first structure of the Castle probably had the task, together with other structures, of controlling the passage and of defending the bridge of Gorle (Ponte Marzio) which, at that time was the only bridge over the river Serio that connected the north-east of Italy with Bergamo, a city that, since the time of Julius Caesar, was part of Cisalpine Gaul. Docuements dating back to the 13th century says that the Castle was part of a residential complex used as a summer residence for the bishops of Bergamo who, over the centuries, left various traces and their simbols still present today, on the facades of the tower. The location, 5 km from the Milan-Orio al Serio airport and the city of Bergamo, 40 km from the center of Milan and Lake Como, make this property a rare opportunity.

      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.
