Best Valentine Ever: Michelangelo's Romantic Tuscan Villa

Since today is the most romantic day of the year, we thought we’d show you what is quite possibly the most romantic listing we’ve ever seen. The Italian Tribune recently announced that a stunning eight bedroom Tuscany villa that was once owned by world-famous painter, architect, poet and scupltor Michealangelo Buonarroti, is for sale. michelangelo-villa

Though not listed with Home Bay (we haven’t made it to Italy just yet), we just had to share this unique property. The home, which dates back the 11th century, was bought by beloved Florentine resident Michealangelo in 1594 and was owned by his family until 1867. To date, the villa has only had three owners, all of whom have worked hard to retain the property’s natural beauty and historical integrity. And now, you could be the fourth!

Surrounded by vineyards and rolling hills, this italian oasis would make anyone swoon. The12,916 square foot property is situated on a stunningly gorgeous six acre lot. The home itself features eight bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, an old mill and a sprawling lemon grove. Best yet, the entire villa is listed at just $8,165,250.00.

If you won some money in the Powerball a few weeks back and are looking to own a piece of history that doubles as a one-of-a-kind vacation home (and the best Valentine’s Day gift ever!), this property is a must buy. You’ll inherit the original deed from the villa’s current owner and will score major kudos with your sweetheart. Visit the listing to put in your offer!

Happy Valentine’s day from the Home Bay team!
