Michelangelo’s Tuscan Villa Heads To Market

Just outside of Florence, Italy, Michelangelo’s former home is officially for sale. Originally built as a fort, the home belonged to the famous painter from 1549 (the year he purchased it) until 1867. According to Uncrate, the home was recently restored with an “eye on historical accuracy, and includes the original documents and deed.” The $8.3 million home boasts eight bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, 12,916-square feet of livable space, and sits on six acres of land. Two additional bedrooms can be found in the guesthouse, and there’s also an outbuilding, which serves as additional storage space.

An oil mill and 200 olive trees also come with the home. Lush greenery, high ceilings, a stunning, picturesque view, and the original DNA of house round out its breathtaking allure — though the fact that original owner was the infamous mind behind the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling probably doesn’t hurt, either.
