Bidding farewell to her New York City penthouse flat, Kate Winslet is selling one of her former homes in West Chelsea for just under $5.7 million.

The duplex penthouse in the heart of New York City is filled with light, enjoying sensational views of the city, including the High Line and Hudson River. 

The Oscar winning actress, now primarily lives in the UK with her husband Edward Abel Smith. However, the star purchased the three-bedroom apartment in 2004 with her now ex-husband, Oscar-winning filmmaker, producer and director Sam Mendes.

Situated on a block lined with trees and art galleries, the apartment is equally as idyllic inside as outside.

At more than 3,000-square feet, the apartment includes three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.

An elegant hallway featuring a timeless round mirror over a dark brown hall table leads into the living room. Floor-to-ceiling bookshelves stretch across the back wall, offering plenty of opportunity to add colour and interest.

A 46-foot-wide open plan living room dominates the space with oversized windows offering views across New York. The floors are made of white-washed wide-plank oak floors while the 13-foot-high ceilings give the space an expansive feel.

The simple, unadorned fireplace provides a focal point for the room, creating a sense of symmetry. The room decor has been kept minimal, with plenty of neutral colours.

While as is natural in any New York apartment, a comparatively compact, but fully kitted out kitchen is tucked away in the corner.

The kitchen includes butcher-block cabinetry, farm sink, and a large center island. It also features a six-burner Viking range and Sub-Zero refrigerator. The stuff of a chef’s dream.

The sunny south-facing main bedroom is fitted with whitewashed oak floors, covered in a gorgeous berber style rug. A generous walk-in wardrobe is another perk of this lovely room.

Toeing the line between modern and traditional, the bathroom has been decorated in a slick modern colour scheme, but with a vintage style sink and claw-footed tub.
