Ever wondered what kind of structure would one of the greatest living artist in his lifetime as well as one of the greatest artists of all time would live in? Michelangelo Buonarroti, who we know as the Italian sculptor, painter, architect, had bought a villa in 1549. Nestled amongst the hills of Tuscany in Italy, the property has hit the market for $8,416,564. The bucolic Tuscan house that was once owned by the famous Florintine painter, most renowned for painting the Sistine Chapel, is located in Castellina. The 12916 square metre house features eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Boasting of the original wood-beamed ceiling, the stately home was in the hands of the Buonarroti family until 1867. The 25,000 square meter green property is dotted with an original oil mill, Chianti vineyards as well as a lemon and an olive grove.The current owner has restored the property to accurately tell the rich historical account of this property and he currently holds the original documents and deed to the home.
