Forget spring cleaning — Kate Winslet is getting ready for fall by getting rid of some excess bagage.

Winslet, 36, split from director Sam Mendes, 47, in 2010, and now it seems the couple’s New York City penthouse is on the market for a cool $30,000 a month. Mendes signed over the apartment to his Oscar winning ex-wife for $2.15 million, reports the New York Daily News.

The four-bedroom, five-bath Penthouse A has a 1,700-square-foot terrace and 12 oversized corner windows overlooking New York City’s iconic Chelsea neighborhood.

What else does it boast? 

The A-list duplex has 13-foot ceilings, a main living space that stretches nearly 47 feet long and a closet that would make even Carrie Bradshaw giddy. The location is perfect for any art lover, as the neighborhood is home to the city’s bustling art scene.

Book readers will be pleased to know the apartment features a long wall of built-in book cases and a central wood-burning fireplace perfect for a cozy night in. And for a glimpse of the outdoors, Winslet’s duplex has a 1,700 square foot wrap around terrace — with the perfect view of the Hudson River.

Winslet’s center-island kitchen has birch-colored, flat-fronted cabinetry, a long snack bar, suitable for her two young children, and super-sized stainless steel appliances.

The couple bought the apartment for $4.995 million in 2004.
