This is no sinking ship.
In fact, this penthouse loft owned by “Titanic” star Kate Winslet flies like a bird over the Chelsea rental market on the west side of lower Manhattan — which makes sense given the apartment is in the exclusive Eagle Condominium.
And now for the first time, the 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom duplex at 532 W 22nd St #A, New York, NY, 10011 has hit the rental market. For $30,000 a month, a lucky renter can snag this comfortably chic condo that features 13-foot ceilings, 12 oversize corner windows and a monstrous 1,700-square-foot terrace that makes for generous indoor/outdoor living — all within one of New York’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
The Academy Award winner and her ex-husband, director Sam Mendes, purchased the property in 2004 for $4.995 million. But the couple split in 2010, and Winslet remained in the apartment with her two children for a spell. Now, according to the New York Daily News, a deed transfer from Mendes appears to indicate the couple have begun to split their assets, leading to Winslet’s decision to list the apartment for rent. Records indicate Mendes settled the transfer for $2.15 million.
Since the divorce, Winslet has been attached to model Louis Dowler and, for the past seven months, a man named Ned Rocknroll, the nephew of Virgin Atlantic mogul Richard Branson and an executive at Branson’s space division, Virgin Galactic.
