Real estate agents are preparing themselves for a busy weekend as the number of properties for sale across the country increases significantly.

After numbers of properties for auction hovering around 1900 nationwide, CoreLogic reports that 2,283 home will be offered for sale – a 19.1 percent increase on the previous week and the busiest week since late June.

Melbourne leads the country, with 953 homes put to market this weekend. While those numbers represent a 19.6 percent increase on the previous week, they are -39.1 percent on this time last year.

The Sydney market will also be its busiest since late June, with 871 homes scheduled for auction. It’s a 23.7 percent increase on last week, but -30.8 percent down on this time last year, when 1,259 properties went to market.

The smaller capitals saw similar improvements on last week, with Brisbane offering 174 homes, Adelaide 154 homes and 108 homes in Canberra. On the west coast, Perth has 18 homes scheduled for auction, while across the Tasman Sea, five homes will be auctioned in Tasmania.

A 14th-century villa in the hills overlooking Florence, Italy, has hit the market for €12 million (US$13 million).

Surrounded by cypress trees, vineyards and olive groves, the quintessential Tuscan home was built for the Davanzati family—who were powerful bankers, merchants and patrons during the Italian Renaissance who have a museum named after them in the heart of the city. The villa was one of the family’s multiple country retreats, according to Lionard Luxury Real Estate, which brought the home to the market earlier this month.

The four-storey, lemon-hued villa boasts more than 16,000 square feet of living space and historic character and charm by the bucket load.

The ballroom has a giant skylight.

On the ground floor there are ​​a number of reception rooms and open-air living areas, with many of them boasting antique paintings, tapestries and stately fireplaces made of marble or carved stone.

The most “magnificent” room, according to Lionard, is the winter garden hall, a ballroom with stuccos, loggias and towering vaulted ceilings, illuminated by an Art Nouveau skylight.

On the first floor are multiple double bedrooms and an antique library, and the second floor, while in need of renovation, offers the possibility of creating up to 12 en-suite bedrooms. The villa’s tower has a “delightful sitting room and a rooftop terrace offering a breathtaking view of the city of Florence,” the listing said.

The villa has ivy-covered loggias.

The basement, meanwhile, has a cellar with brick vaults that are perfect for wine lovers. An elevator runs between the levels.

Outside, the grounds have well-kept gardens, rolling lawns, a fountain, ancient wells and ivy-covered loggias.

Mansion Global couldn’t determine who is selling the villa, or when they acquired it.

The property is “an oasis of peace,” the listing said, and “one of the most exclusive historical estates on the hills that surround the city of Florence.”
