Director Sam Mendes transferred the deed on his Chelsea apartment to ex-wife Kate Winslet earlier this week, and the Daily News noticed that the place is already for rent. The penthouse at 532 West 22nd Street is asking a cool $30,000/month for 3,300 square feet of "the best in Shabby Chic Decor." There's a 1,700-square-foot roof terrace, too. Here's a drool-worthy bit of brokerbabble:
"This whimsical Four bedroom duplex features a double corner living room, which is the ultimate Great Room featuring 13 foot high ceilings, 12 oversized corner windows, triple North/South/West exposure, a wall of book shelves, a wood burning fireplace and an open island country style kitchen with breakfast bar....The luxurious master bedroom has an incredible bath en-suite with a claw foot tub for two, separate stall rain shower, his and her sink, and beautiful 6" wide white washed oak floors throughout. Also on the main level are two spacious guest bedrooms, an additional one and a half remodeled baths, laundry and wainscoting throughout. The upper level features a perfectly proportioned sunroom with another full bathroom and walls of glass that leads to the most incredible Roof Terrace in Downtown Manhattan with direct Highline and River Views."
