The homeowner has documents suggesting Michelangelo was the designer. Inside, many of the rooms still have their original terracotta tiled floors and are richly decorated with 17th- and 18th-century floor-to-ceiling frescoes.
From the gardens, there is a stunning view of Brunelleschi's Duomo in Florence. Chianti, the region the estate is located in, is famous for its wine, so of course, the villa has an expansive cellar.
Featuring ornate chandeliers in most rooms, including the bedrooms and the private chapel, and decorative wall treatments, the villa exudes the style of its time. It is currently listed on Sotheby's International Realty for €10.5 million.
