Welcome to the ‘Lighthouse’ — a landmark home by acclaimed architect Peter Stutchbury and winner of the Wilkinson Award for residential property.

Showcasing a site-specific design that complements its clifftop location in Sydney’s coveted Dover Heights, the four-bedroom residence — complete with large double lock-up garage and three bathrooms — is a heady combination of modern glamour, raw materials and elevated finishes.

Throughout the home, themes of raw concrete on the ceiling, floors and coordinating columns are paired with timber finishes in the kitchen, central staircase and panelled details dotted within the property.

It’s a theme that extends to the home’s outer, offering sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Sydney Heads with its curved, concrete exterior mimicking the shape of the cliffs upon which it is set.

The two-level home sees a lower living, dining and kitchen space that is glass on all sides bringing in plenty of light and ocean views. The home features multiple sliding doors that allow seamless access to the ocean-view lawn, inner pool courtyard and further wide terrace.

Within the residence comes the kitchen, fitted with marble benches, Mile gas and induction cooking plus timber flooring underfoot.

Accommodation is located on the upper level, where a lavish main bedroom gazes across the ocean and features large built in/walk-in robes and opens to a private terrace.

Elsewhere a secluded second bedroom offers privacy with an adjoining norther-east facing sitting room or additional bedroom.

A third bedroom could be used as a large bedroom or relaxed living/study space with views across to the surf at Bondi Beach.

Further highlights include the upper double bathroom — a vast space with separate amenities and featuring a central skylight that skewers the centre of the room down to the lower courtyard pool.

The aforementioned pool, courtyard and outdoor entertaining areas further elevate the home’s functionality.

The listing is with Sydney Sotheby’s International Realty’s Michael Pallier (+61 4127 371 522) and is headed to auction on Wednesday 16 February.  Sydneysothebysrealty.com

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.”
