Here, TopCelebrityHome looks at one of Kate Winslet's old home in the seaside county of Cornwall, England. The exact location is at Angarrack, outside Hayle.
The Pole House is eco- friendly. The living room has high, vaulted beams and the walls are made of a mixture of birch, pine, American redwood, cedar and Douglas fir, sourced from managed forests in Scandinavia, North America and Britain.
The Japanese touches at Kate Winslet's Pole House could be seen in the simple, clean line of its architecture, paper-like wooden walls and a Hokusai's painting "The Great Wave off Kaganawa".
The interior of the living room is very Oriental with a light Alpine touch.
The open plan living/dining/kitchen area of Kate Winslet's old home feels very airy and spacious. Furnishing is simple and made of natural materials such as cotton and linen. Various types fo wood give it a nice ... woody scent and add cosiness.
Kate Winslet's old home: The Pole House, looks like a treehouse nestled among greenery of the Cornish countryside.

According to estate agent Jackie Stanley "It is based on an original Japanese design and made of some six to seven different types of wood. Kate Winslet fell in love with it because it was completely unusual and very eco at the time. They enjoyed and used it a lot but she moved on to other things."
In fact, the house was owned by Kate Winslet from 1998 to 2001.
It is currently on the market for £425,000 (about US$700,000), and managed by the same estate agent.
The house could now be rented on this website. It's reasonably priced from £492 to £1,215 per week. (About US$800 to $2,000 per week) for the whole house.
Despite its simple decorations, Kate Winslet's former home is on our Editor's Picks list thanks to its wonderful simplicity and eco credentials.
