Today it is possible to purchase one of the houses where the Renaissance master spent part of his life, framed by the amazing Chianti Classico area.
Some ancient documents of the Florence Archivio Di Stato prove that, in 1549, Michelangelo Buonarroti, the great Italian Renaissance master, purchased a beautiful villa in one of the most fascinating Tuscan areas: the Chianti Classico one.
The villa, purchased for 2.281 florins, is surrounded by more than 2 hectares of land, composed of centuries-old olive trees, lemon trees and Chianti vineyards. With its simple but elegant style, “Il Torrino Di Michelangelo” presents itself as the traditional Tuscan home. Inside, the ancient ceilings with their original on-sight wood beams, as well as its suggestive living room with large fireplace and ancient stone ceiling catch your attention.
“Villa Michelangelo” has been purchased by the present owner in 1973, when it was almost a ruin. Today, this home has come back to its original beauty thanks to a precise and focused renovation work aimed to maintain its original features.
Currently, “Villa Michelangelo” can be purchased. Indeed, the current owner has decided to sale it. The price? 7,5 millions euros.
