One of the greatest living artists in his lifetime, not to mention one of the greatest artists of all time is Michelangelo Buonarroti. Known as the great Italian sculptor, painter and architect, this brilliant mind is responsible for some of the most incredible artworks ever. But have you ever wondered where this genius rested his head?
Michelangelo had bought a charming villa back in 1549. Nestled amidst the hills of Tuscany in Italy, the property is located in Castellina and is now up for sale for the modest sum of $8,416,564.
The 12,916 square meter house is comprised out of 8 bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Still featuring the original wood-beamed ceiling, Michelangelo’s Villa was in the hands of the Buonarroti family until 1867. The entire property measures 25,000 square meters, dotted with an original oil mill, lovely Chianti vineyards as well as a lemon and an olive grove.
According to the current owner, the property has been restored to accurately tell the rich historical story we all dream about. The original documents and deeds should easily prove that.
