The prestigious estate, subject of sale, is composed of the main villa, two houses and about 200 hectares of land. The estate, in the past, was part of an important monumental complex which is, like the castle of Brolio, one of the most impressive and rare examples of neo-Gothic architecture of late nineteenth century in Tuscany, and was, in its time, the largest estate and the most important of the whole Casentino. It has been owned since the beginning of the fifteenth century by the Florentine family Rondinelli Vitelli and then by inheritance by Conti Bastogi (Famous tycoons of Railways, to whom we owe the radical makeover carried out in the nineteenth century) and Paolozzi Strozzi. The complex was designed by architect Luigi Agnolucci and built between 1887 and 1905, commissioned by the Count Giovannangelo Bastogi and his wife, Clementina Rondinelli Vitelli. The architect was contemporary of Pietro Marchetti (the architect of the coeval Castle of Brolio) and, like him, was formed the Sienese school of architecture, particularly sensitive to the neo-Gothic international imprint, Agnolucci made a great and detailed monumental complex, availing himself of typical materials of Tuscany (terracotta bricks, strong stone from local quarries, Rapolano travertine) and using many style ornaments like sculptures, wrought iron, columns, capitals etc. of Florentine experts workers and qualified and renowned art workshops, that at that time were in great demand for villas and palaces in and around Florence. The villa has in fact numerous similar decorative inserts: such as the loggia at the side entrance, decorated with columns in travertine and zoomorphic heads on the corbels of the lower vault. Buildings: The stone villa spread over 650 m² divided on two units with independent access; It is characterized by the embattled tower, born as hunting lodge and house guard in defense of the castle which stands in close proximity, but from whose driveway is separated from the road. During the twentieth century, part of the villa was used as a dwelling farmhouse. Although it is completely independent from the castle, the villa shares from the beginning the story and features the same architectural characteristics, both in materials and in style. The interior is divided into large vaulted rooms on the ground floor from which, through the grand staircase you have access to the upper floor and the two levels of the attic. The interior finishes and all the exterior details are original and kept intact. From the point of view of the structure, the construction does not show damage or equipment failure and is in excellent condition. The property, very bright, enjoys panoramic views of the valley. The building is restricted under the law n. 1089/39; It is listed at the Inventory of buildings and urbanistically is considered as rural. Inside the company are also two stone farmhouses to be restored.

      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.
