This elegant flat for sale within a prestigious property is located in the hamlet of a small municipality, Casale Litta, in the hills of the Varesotto region. The charming and prestigious property is a former Benedictine monastery dating back to 1200. It is divided into four units. Inside it has a small church that is still officiated, probably built over an ancient Lombard oratory. The flat for sale is spread over two floors. On the ground floor we find the large entrance hall with the staircase leading to the upper floor. This is followed by four large rooms to be used as a living room, dining room, TV room and study. The kitchen is adjacent with the old and original wood-burning brazier and large fireplace. Other rooms complete this floor, including the laundry, cellars and storerooms. The first floor is entirely devoted to the six bedrooms and three bathrooms. The flat for sale also has a private garden planted with valuable and antique camellias, magnolias, palms and dogwoods. At the edge of the garden is a beautiful greenhouse with a well, the water from which is used to irrigate the garden. The private parking area can hold six cars; this area was once the coach house. The elegant flat for sale is completely renovated in the plant engineering part, has independent heating with radiators, original terracotta floors from the end of the 18th century and a new roof. The bathrooms need to be renovated. Many interior doors are original, in solid oak or chestnut wood. Also sold with this unit is a room with a large wine press from the 1300s in perfect condition. The complex is protected by the Ministry of Cultural and Environmental Heritage, and is listed by S. Lanqé among the 'Villas of the provinces of Como and Varese'. The property is 12 km from Varese, 55 km from Milan, to which it is connected by rail and motorway, and about 17 km from Milan Malpensa Airport. In the surroundings there are several lakes, Corgeno being the nearest, 3 km away. It has a cycle path running alongside it, connected to that of Lake Varese, altogether 42 km of cycle-pedestrian path. Lake Monate is 8 km away, as well as Lakes Maggiore, Orta, Ghirla and Lugano.

      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 Turkey passport by buying a property worth at least $400,000.

      • 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.
