Michelangelo’s Historic Tuscan Villa Listed For $8.4 Million

Art lovers, we’ve found the home for you: a picturesque stone villa near Siena in Tuscany, which was once owned by famed Florentine artist, Michelangelo Buonnarroti.

The master painter, best known for the iconic Sistine Chapel ceiling, purchased this prestigious Italian property back in 1549. His family maintained ownership until 1867. Since then, the eight-bedroom, seven-bathroom home has undergone extensive renovations to return it to its former glory, and has now hit the market for $8.4 million. The current owners are even throwing in the original deed, which identifies Michelangelo as a “dear sculptor and Florentine citizen.” Click through to tour the historic home.
