Michelangelo's Tuscan Villa Is Still For Sale

(Handsome Properties International)

If you missed the once-in-a-lifetime Michelangelo exhibition at the Met this winter, which drew some 700,000 visitors, there is another chance to get close to the Italian Renaissance master.

Villa Michelangelo, the ten-bedroom "farmhouse" that the artist bought in 1549 is seeking a new owner, according to its Handsome Properties International listing, after more than 300 years in the Buonarroti family (who owned it until 1867).

Situated in Castellina in Chianti, the Tuscan country home is clad in stone and its historic interiors restored. The price is €7,500,000 ($9,274,800 USD), and the listing has been sitting for a while.

A copy of the orginal deed, signed by Michelangelo, comes with the sale.
