Rugged outdoorsmen of the world, does the concrete jungle have you pining for the real thing? Then look no further than the former residence of action film director Phillip Noyce, the Australian filmmaker who brought us "Salt" and "Clear and Present Danger." The Real Deal reports that amenities in the lavish SoHo duplex include a 2,300-square-foot garden and "outdoor living room." Listings agent and fellow Aussie, Robin Bowden of Prudential Douglass Elliman, says the home is perfect for a young couple looking to start a family, and even includes a huge vegetable garden-in the middle of downtown Manhattan.

"Salt" director Phillip Noyce spent his childhood in the Australian outback, and he's apparently retained a love of the great outdoors.

For the past year and a half, the Australian director has been renting a Soho duplex with a mammoth 2,300-square-foot landscaped garden, including an "outdoor living room."

Noyce recently vacated the Hudson Street home, said Prudential Douglas Elliman's Robin Bowden, who is listing the property for sale at $4.25 million. She said the 2,200-square-foot, three-bedroom condominium was on the market while the "Clear and Present Danger" director was in residence, but showings were hard to arrange with a tenant in place. Now that the home is empty, it will be easier for potential buyers to view, she said.
