Located in the blue-ribbon Sydney suburb of Point Piper, on the highly sought-after Wunulla Road, this expansive boatshed has just sold for close to $40 million, making it Australia’s most expensive property sale this year.

Taking just weeks to sell, it is believed to have sold on the high end of its $37-$40 million price estimate by Ken Jacobs and James Hall of Christie’s International.

The two-storey boatshed is set on almost 2000sqm and is complete with a harbourside swimming pool on grounds and one of the largest private marina berths on Sydney Harbour.

More than a boatshed, it holds accommodation on the upper level and, importantly, a DA to convert the property into a house, recently approved by Woollahra Council.

The property has seen many of Sydney’s elite as custodians, with it once the former party-pad of Denis O’Neil, property developer and Olympic sailor, and his family.

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.”
