The estate consists of a main historical building and several annexes used for the agricultural activity. The main building covers an area of about 397 m² on three levels plus 198 m² of usable attic. The historical character of the building is enhanced by the external façade in plaster and stone and the medallion with effigy set at the entrance and overlooking the entire property thanks to a large garden with pergola. The main farmhouse is ready to move in, with well-maintained finishing and with features of the typical noble country houses of the Basso Monferrato. At ground floor we find a kitchen with dining room, sitting room and master living room with antique fireplace, cellar with woodshed and toilet. On the first floor, reachable through internal double staircase with vaults, we have 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The second floor is an attic with granary and has lower windows. From here and from the bow-window in the mezzanine floor (used as bathroom) we can enjoy marvellous view of the surrounding countryside. The property includes a masonry stone and brick cellar/storage of about 145 m² with barrel vault, a two-floor guesthouse with two apartments of 110 m² and 130 m² (including outdoor areas), porticoes and canopies used as tool shed for a total area of 430 m² and a garage of 45 m² The land that surrounds the property covers an area of about 15,0660 ha, mostly planted as vineyard and hazelnut grove. There are also some oaks and a delightful area for vegetable garden. The buildings are located on the top of a private hill.

The property is provided with the necessary utilities: electricity, town water. There are fireplaces for the heating (there is no kind of heating system with thermal plant). The main farmhouse is also provided with water collection tanks.

Outside, the main building has preserved the traditional features of the antique country houses, with red brick masonry and plastered stone inserts, wooden windows, covering with tiles. The farmhouse needs some internal restoration and conservative renewal works. It boasts cotto tiles or single-fired light coloured tiles pavements; the bathrooms, the kitchens and the kitchenettes need interventions too, as well as the bedrooms. The windows, with shutters, are in wood. The guesthouse, instead, is in good conditions, being it restored in the ‘90s. It boasts plastered bricks facades, wooden windows and shutters, coverings in tiles. The rooms of the guesthouse are ready to move in, but still need some improvement works.

Thanks to its favourable position, close to Acqui Terme (well-known thermal centre), this is the perfect property for those who want a splendid countryside estate, to be easily provided with comforts, with absolute privacy even if not isolated, with possibility to partially rent it out to have an income. It would be perfect as both main residence, with possibility to continue the agricultural activity, and second home.

The “Antica Tenuta San Pietro” is reachable through 300m of dirt road, with perfectly maintained stone bands, which starts from the SS30 trunk road that connects Alessandria to Acqui Terme. The closest centre is just 1,5km away from the property. It is also easily reachable from the Genova-Gravellona Toce A26 motorway. It is located at short distance from the Alessandria Sud motorway exit.

Great Estate Group, through the owner’s specialist, draws up a due diligence on each property, which allows to perfectly know the urbanistic and cadastral situation of every property. The due diligence can be required in case of real interest in the property.

The property is owned by private individuals and the purchase will be taxed according to the current laws.

      How to buy property with Tranio


      Send us an enquiry with an approximate description of the property or investment project you’re interested in.

      Meeting the partners

      After clarifying your enquiry, we will introduce you to our partners and/or local agents.

      Offer selection

      We will help you to select suitable options. Tranio does not charge a commission for this — the property price remains the same as if you contacted our partner directly.

      Viewing tour

      You then view the property or properties you have chosen. Our partners or agents from Tranio's European offices will meet you in situ.

      Transaction closure

      Having chosen the best property, you will sign the sales or investment agreement (for development).


      • 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.
