The shimmering One Sydney Harbour development has today unveiled its latest ‘Skyhome’ penthouses.

The luxurious three-tower Lendlease project – designed by Pritzker award-winning architect Renzo Piano and which informs the city’s rapidly expanding Barangaroo precinct – is already home to the country’s most expensive residence,  last year’s $140-million-plus sale of the premiere OSH penthouse not only smashing sales records but ultimately setting a new luxury agenda.

Now, two further penthouses – so-called Skyhomes – have hit the market, occupying the top two floors of the 68-storey Residences Two.

Spanning a full floor each and ranging from 540 to 670 square metres with 3-metre high ceilings throughout, each boasts private lift and rooftop terrace (80 – 100 sqm) with entertaining space, swimming pool and panoramic views across Sydney and its various architectural icons, as well as to the Blue Mountains in the west.

“All places have a story to tell, you just have to listen to that story and I think Sydney has a great story to tell,” offers Piano.“In this case, I think it’s very much about this, about making something that tells the essence of this city that is about sense of lightness, a sense of light, the sense of transparency.”

Skyhomes interiors will be crafted by leading designer Daniel Goldberg, founder and creative director of State of Craft, in consultation with the owners.
Goldberg previously collaborated with Piano on London’s The Shard and Shard Place in 2012.

“We wanted to create two unique, world-class homes in the sky that capture the essence of living high above Sydney Harbour,” says Goldberg. “The experience of being in the Skyhomes was inspired by life on board private yachts with their seamless transition from inside to outside spaces, and the feeling of freedom and elegant comfort.”

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-story, 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 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.”
