TUSCANY Castellina in Chianti: Prestigious property that belonged to Michelangelo Buonarroti, the famous Florentine artist who painted the Sistine Chapel for sale. Michelangelo bought it himself in 1549, in fact he is called “Egregium sculptorem et civem Florentinum…” (“Dear sculptor and Florentine citizen…”) in the contract. Buonarroti’s family owned this property until 1867.
The estate (1200 sq. m) is surrounded by Chianti vineyards, with an extraordinary view over the hills.
It is composed of 3 buildings: the main Villa, built around an ancient tower that may be dated to the XI century, the original oil mill, now used as an outbuilding, and a lemon grove. The entire estate includes 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.
The current owner performed an excellent conservation intervention and an accurate work in order to reconstruct the story of this property; in fact, he conserves all the copies of the original purchase agreements given by the historical archive.
The plot (2.5 ha) consists of a parkland and olive grove.
