Have a peek inside Cate Blanchett's $12M Sydney apartment

The oscar-winner has listed her apartment in Sydney's historic Astor building.

Cate Blanchett and her husband, Andrew Upton, are selling their last Australian property, an incredible $12million Sydney apartment.

In the heart of the CBD, the Astor building is a much-sought-after location. The sprawling duplex apartment boasts panoramic views of Sydney's scenic sights, such as the Harbour and the Opera House.

Usually extremely private, Cate Blanchett is offering a glimpse into her home. The listing shows the first floor of the breathtaking apartment, which features an open-plan living-dining room. It also includes a state-of-the-art kitchen featuring staggering high ceilings.

The living areas then lead into an amazing outside deck with views of the city, perfect for entertaining. Also on the first floor are two luxurious bedrooms.

The apartment has a long and star-studded history. Thirty-five years ago, the large apartment was created by Australian comedian, Barry Humphries, when he illegally combined three of the Astor building's units. In 2015, Cate and her husband then purchased the home for $8million from Australian Apprentice host, Mark Bouris.

After selling all of their Australian properties, the couple is now permanently relocated to their English estate, Highwell House in East Sussex.
