See Inside Cate Blanchett’s $8M Sydney Apartment
Cate Blanchett and her playwright husband Andrew Upton may have permanently moved to the U.S. last year, but they haven’t completely severed ties with their home city. The Oscar-winning actress, who’s been nominated again this year for her lead role in Carol, acquired a multi-million dollar apartment in Sydney’s central business district. With two Oscar wins under her belt, a crash pad across the pond is essential for the jet-setting actress.
Cate purchased the five-bedroom apartment from businessman and The Celebrity Apprentice star Mark Bouris for a whopping $8 million. With views over the harbor, including the Sydney Opera House, we’d say it’s a steal.
Housed in the famed Astor building on Macquarie Street, the two-level home boasts five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and three parking spaces.
The first floor features a large formal living room with a built-in bar and a long pendant light fixture that’s repeatedly used throughout the home.
The art-filled dining room is brightly lit with views of the harbor and Sydney Opera House.
A grand spiral staircase sits under a jaw-dropping chandelier in the open living space.
The main living area is so large that it has been divided into numerous seating zones.
This separate living room is adjacent to the seating area.
The kitchen is quite spacious for an apartment – although, this isn’t your typical apartment.
The media room is the epitome of relaxation, complete with a projector and comfy seating – musts for anyone in the movie business.
An informal living room provides even more space for the celebrity couple.
Black-painted window frames in the bedroom and throughout the home emphasize the stunning Sydney views.
Floor-to-ceiling marble blankets the master bathroom.
A grass-lined rooftop offers scenic views of the surrounding ocean.
