The origins of this splendid hamlet date back to 1200. In the XVI century, on its foundations, a monastery was built. During the last century, the residence hosted an American actress, a writer, and more recently the well-known abstract artist Piero Dorazio. All these important characters had found an oasis of peace and tranquillity in this splendid location, perfect to make art thanks to the history of the hamlet and the beautiful surrounding nature. The entire property was restored in the ’70s preserving its historical features; it is now ready to be customized according to the new owners’ needs. The property is currently composed of: — “foresteria”, with reception room, breakfast room, kitchen and laundry room at ground floor and 2 large living room, 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and closed loggia with access to the secret garden on the first floor; — “Casa del Maestro”, with entrance, reception room, study, kitchen, internal courtyard, and covered portico at ground floor, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large covered terrace with a view of the gardens designed by Ippolito Pizzetti on the first floor and attic bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor; — Sant’Angelo deconsecrated church, majestic building with bell tower, high ceilings, frescoes and arches, used by Dorazio as his atelier; — Cellar — Agricultural annexes — 2 Cottages: once used as monks’ private residences, with bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, a small chapel and 2 private fenced gardens each; — Keeper’s house of 200 m² The swimming pool is a true artwork: it was designed in 1990 by Dorazio himself with Bisazza coloured mosaic tiles. The property includes a 17th-century natural spring and a land of 5ha, with a cypress tree-lined boulevard and arched entrance, 300 olive trees, truffle ground, and woods.

The property is provided with all the necessary utilities. The water supply is granted by the town aqueduct plus 3 private wells. The property also includes a natural spring, dating back to the 17th century. The independent heating system is fuelled by diesel.

The property was completely restored in the ’70s, preserving the original historical features: frescoes, vaulted ceilings, arches, loggias, secret gardens. It is partly ready to move in; thanks to some renovation work, it could be adapted to the new lucky owners’ needs. This important residence needs somebody who can take care of it, bringing it back to the splendour that is still possible to breathe in every corner. The marvellous swimming pool is an artwork itself: designed by the artist Piero Dorazio in 1990, it is decorated with Bisazza coloured mosaic tiles that seem to move, thanks to a visual effect of light and water.

This magnificent historical mansion would be suited for many uses. Thanks to its strategical position, close to the major Umbrian centers, it could be a prestigious private residence for a large family, where to live in touch with nature in an exceptional historical background. Another possible solution is to turn it into a luxury hotel, perfect to satisfy the top clients’ highest expectations: here, they could experience an unforgettable holiday. It could also be partially inserted into the luxury vacation rentals market.

The property is easy to reach, located just 7km away from Todi, 48km from Perugia, 140km from Rome, and 190km from Florence.

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.

      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.
