Can you imagine waking up in the same room where Michelangelo, the Michelangelo, awoke each morning? Imagine dining in the same room where he dined! If you happen to have a spare $8 million lying around, you can live in one of the most famous homes in Italy. The Tuscan villa where the famous Florentine painter, Michelangelo Buonarroti once lived, is now on the market.
Michelangelo’s villa is over 12,195 square feet, spread out over three buildings. He bought the villa in 1549 and it remained in his family until 1867. Amazing!
The home, which has been fully restored, has eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms and is surrounded by vineyards, and olive grove and a mill where olive oil is made.
What an experience it would be to live in such an historic home!
The ground and surrounding countryside are absolutely beautiful! Let’s go inside and check it out.
I’m sure it’s furnished a bit different from Michelangelo’s time. Wow, look at the ceilings!
Pretty sure there were no TVs sitting around back in 1549. 😉
Love the windows with the interior shutters. Another amazing ceiling!
I was about to ask, where’s the microwave, but I think I see it.
The ceiling feels so low in the dining room.
One of the many bedrooms…
This may be one of the other buildings on the property because the ceiling is brick and so very different! Almost feels like a tunnel, doesn’t it?
The ceilings almost gives me a feeling of being underground. Isn’t it fascinating to see such an historic home? Just amazing and I’m so glad it’s still standing for us to see.
