Now that Jessica Chastain is settled into Leonard Bernstein’s former duplex across from Carnegie Hall, the actress is renting out her old place in Greenwich Village.

For $11,500 a month, her tenant will enjoy a renovated and furnished two-bedroom, two-bath apartment with an extravagantly appointed master bath, including a full-length soaking tub fit for a Golden Globe winner.

The first floor boasts high ceilings, an open chef’s kitchen with high-end appliances and a living room with a wood-burning fireplace.

Follow the wide, circular staircase to a skylit landing, a master bedroom with city views, a dressing area and a cedar walk-in closet.

It’s “the perfect place to call home without needing to bring anything more than your toothbrush and favorite clothing,” according to the listing by Chris Pomeroy of Halsted Property.

Mortgage rates for 30-year fixed loans fell this week, with the rate borrowers were quoted on Zillow Mortgages at 3.73 percent Tuesday, down two basis points from last week.

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate fell to 3.67 percent on Friday before rising to Tuesday’s rate.

“Mortgage rates fell last week to their lowest levels since early May after the Fed deferred its first rate hike yet again,” said Erin Lantz, vice president of mortgages at Zillow. “We expect rates to be mostly stable this week now that the uncertainty about the Fed’s decision has subsided.”

Additionally, the 15-year fixed mortgage rate was 2.89 percent. For 5/1 adjustable rate mortgages, the rate was 2.71 percent.
