Oscar Award-winning actress and noted philanthropist Meryl Streep’s striking penthouse is on the market for $18.25 million dollars, and news of the listing has been making the rounds. A household Hollywood name, the actresses’ decade-spanning career includes performances in noteworthy films like Sophie’s Choice, Out of Africa, The Hours, The Post, Mary Poppins Returns, and of course, her unforgettable performance as Miranda Priestly in 2006’s The Devil Wears Prada. Let’s take a look inside her Tribeca home.
View for Days
Just off the Hudson River in Tribeca, this penthouse features some of New York’s most famous views; the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center, and Empire State Building can be seen from the floor-to-ceiling windows, glass doors, or 10-foot-wide terrace.
Its stylish spaces include an open living and dining area; an Italian-designed kitchen with top-caliber appliances; a study or den; and four peaceful bedrooms. Brazilian walnut hardwood floors, triple-glazed windows, custom door screens, electronic sheers, Lutron lighting, and a central audio system can be found throughout. The home is a delight year-round, from summer days gardening on the terrace to winter evenings by the fire, watching the snow fall.
This has been a great home for us, and I hope another family can now enjoy it as much as we have, said Meryl Streep in a statement to Mansion Global
A Bed and Bath to Behold
Being in the heart of New York City can easily lead to a day filled with activities. Whether it’s venturing out to one the iconic sights mentioned above, or something else entirely, having a sanctuary to retire to for refreshment is key. The master bed and bath both showcase iconic views, while the bath features a soaking tub, shower, and dressing room.
