Nicole Kidman has sold one of her New York homes for $16 million.

The 45-year-old actress completed the sale of the 12th floor condo - which she didn't live in and had listed for rent at $45,000 per month - in July, according to The Real Deal.

The 3,785-square-foot residence situated at 176 Perry Street in the West Village with views over the Hudson River.

The building is popular with celebrities with fellow Australian actor Hugh Jackman reportedly splashing out on a property in 2008, while Jim Carrey was said to have considered buying a home in the building two years ago.

Nicole and her husband Keith Urban - with whom she has two children, Sunday Rose, four, and 19-month-old Faith Margaret - have another apartment in New York City which they bought in 2011.

The couple reportedly paid $10 million for the Penthouse flat on Eleventh Avenue, which was listed at £12.5 million.

It has been speculated that Nicole and Keith could be planning a more permanent move to Australia after the sale of the second New York property and their accumulation of a third apartment in the Sydney building where they base themselves when in the country.

The couple bought the home adjoining theirs on the 21st floor of an apartment block in Milsons Point for $7 million in which they also have a 19th floor flat.
