Hollywood actress Susan Sarandon has listed her dramatic New York loft apartment, giving us a sneak peek at her lush interior style. The Thelma and Louise star has called this two-story duplex apartment her home for nearly 30 years, raising her children here. Located on West 15th Street in New York's Chelsea area, the apartment is on the market for $7.9 million or £6.1 million pounds.

The Oscar-winning actress has lived in the 6-bedroom, five-bathroom home since 1991, when she bought it together with actor Tim Robbins, her husband at the time. After Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins split 20 years later in 2011, she gained full ownership of the apartment. But now that her kids have moved out, the native New Yorker (she grew up in Queens) has decided to downsize to a smaller place nearby.

The 6,061-square-foot apartment sits in La Fabrique, a nine-story industrial-style building that was built in the 1920s. Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins merged two apartments in the building, connecting them with a staircase. The double apartment now features six bedrooms, and five bathrooms (plus a powder loo), and an outdoor terrace.

The apartment has plenty to offer; grand-scale rooms, architectural details, outdoor space, private lift access and gorgeous interiors, but the real selling point has got to be 360 views across New York.

The views can be enjoyed from four exposures, including a sixty-foot-wide expanse of southern light. The listing reads: "Views of the World Trade Tower to the Empire State Building are showcased from this vast and open grand scale loft. From sunrise to sunset, the light is captivating."
