We always thought that Michelangelo lived in sewer with the rest of the Ninja Turtles, but apparently he was kicking his feet up at this beautiful Tuscan villa, complete with eight bedrooms, seven baths, wood burning fireplaces, and an olive grove, the whole time. The property is now on the market for $8,369,602. Purchased by Michelangelo in 1549, it cannot be changed as it has been declared a historical home by the Italian Ministry although, the realtors note, "the municipality may allow the construction of a swimming pool." Too bad nobody ever gave Michelangelo that idea, because Donatello, Leonardo, and Shredder probably would have loved that.
