Listings broker Colbert Warfield of Keller Williams NYC said: 'It's a truly unique space that makes everyone who has come to view it, clients & guests to architects and interior designers, say, "wow" upon entering.

'It's the dramatic bird's eye view into the open living room and the 900 square foot patio through the window wall that sets the apartment apart.' 

Keira, her musician husband James Righton and their 18-month-old daughter Edie have now settled in London where the actress juggles motherhood with a slightly less hectic movie career.

She recently appeared alongside Will Smith, Helen Mirren and Thandie Newton in drama Collateral Beauty and will play the Sugar Plum Fairy in Disney's forthcoming production of The Nutcracker. 

'I've become unbelievably aware of that and how lucky I've been to be able to afford really good childcare, because otherwise it would be at least four years out of my career,' she recently told Harper's Bazaar.

'I wouldn't be able to get back to where I'd been if I'd taken four years out. I think that's the same for most women. And I think that's really hard.'
