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.
The 13,000-square-foot villa is comprised of three separate buildings. Built around an ancient tower, it’s believed to date back to the 11th century.
Chianti Vineyards surround this luxury estate, complete with views of the rolling Italian countryside.
The lush property also features both a lemon and olive grove, typical of the Italian countryside.
The home consists of eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and numerous sitting areas.
Despite extensive renovations, the architecture of the home is largely true to its historic design.
Original architectural details include these stunning wood-beamed ceilings.
Persian rugs cover the worn terracotta tile floor.
The family room features an eclectic mix of styles, with a set of mid-century modern furniture contrasting the Victorian loveseat.
With a master bedroom that looks out to the gorgeous Italian countryside, it would be hard not to wake up feeling inspired.
