Arezzo: This prestigious modern villa is located a few kilometres from Arezzo, near a small village with all amenities.

Surrounded by 2.0 hectares of parkland with a well-kept garden and a 12 × 6 m swimming pool, it can be considered one of the greatest examples of rationalist architecture in the province of Arezzo.

The villa was built at the end of the 1960s according to a design by Engineer Luigi Lucherini, at the time a pupil of the well-known architect Giovanni Michelucci, one of the masters of Italian rationalist architecture; among Maestro Michelucci's countless masterpieces are the Santa Maria Novella railway station in Florence and the famous church in Campi Bisenzio (FI) along the A1 motorway. The architectural style of the villa thus clearly recalls the clear lines of Italian rationalism of which architect Michelucci was one of the epigones with the typical pagoda roofs, which we can see both in the Villa and also in the church of San Giovanni Battista. Even the interiors of the Villa, custom-made in solid chestnut by Tuscan craftsmen, are inspired by the design of Italian Rationalism; especially noteworthy is the majestic chestnut staircase that leads up to the first floor and the magnificent 17th-century Italian stone fireplace.

Building: The Villa of approximately 500 square metres has been completely restored and enlarged in 2012 by the current owner, enhancing the fine interior finishes, such as the chestnut-wood fixtures and the original Tuscan terracotta floors.

In the basement there is a spacious cellar, also ideal as a storage room, and the technical room for the villa's equipment. On the ground floor, accessible from the various porticos that surround the villa, there are the entrance hall, a spacious living area with dining area, the kitchen and a guest bathroom. With independent access on the opposite side of the building, a small separate flat (two bedrooms, bathroom and laundry room to be converted into a living area) completes the floor.

A staircase in the entrance hall leads to the first floor where the sleeping area is located: here there are a private study/library, the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and exclusive panoramic terrace and two bedrooms with shared bathroom in between. The second floor leads to the partially practicable attic with a small guest bathroom.

With the extension of the internal surface area by a further 50 square metres, a cottage of about 60 square metres was also built next to the villa, currently used as a garage for three cars.

During the renovation, the roof of the Villa was reinforced and insulated with natural insulating materials, new electrical systems, plumbing systems, and five new bathrooms were built, and the best non-toxic paints in the world from the well-known English company Farrow & Ball were used for the interior painting.

Also in 2012, a bio-pool was built in the garden in front of the Villa's elegant portico; there is a hand-built wood-burning oven in the back patio for cooking food naturally.

The property is surrounded by 2 hectares of land. In front of the villa around the swimming pool there is an English-style lawn; the villa is protected by a wood of about 6000 square metres, where there is a vegetable garden that provides organic vegetables during the summer season.

All services are available nearby (900 m, also reachable on foot).

      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 and Latvia 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.
