Philip Seymour Hoffman has bequeathed all of his personal property to the mother of his three children.

The late Oscar-winning actor's will names Marianne "Mimi" O'Donnell as the sole beneficiary.

It identifies her as the Doubt star's "friend and companion".

Hoffman, 46, was found dead on February 2 of an apparent heroin overdose in his apartment in New York. His will was filed on Wednesday.

The actor built a career in Hollywood, but his will shows he thought childhood was best spent in New York City, Chicago or San Francisco and he wanted his son to grow up in or near them.

The will was signed in 2004, when only the eldest of his three children was born. It says he wanted his son to at least visit those three cities regularly to take in their "culture, arts and architecture".

Papers filed with the will value Hoffman's estate simply at "$500,000-plus".

The papers also note the boy's two younger sisters.
