Meryl Streep has sold her longtime Tribeca penthouse after over a year on the market. The Oscar winner recently found a buyer for the 3,944-square-foot unit, which occupies an entire floor in the River Lofts building, for $15.8 million.
The sale price is a considerable amount lower than the original $24.6 million she asked for when she first listed it in August 2018. In August 2019, the Little Women star lowered the price to $18.25 million. Streep and her husband, sculptor Don Gummer, first bought the home for $10.31 million back in 2006.
One of the apartment’s biggest selling points is its private elevator that ascends directly from the parking garage, a perk that ensures the utmost privacy for the building’s A-list tenants (Gwyneth Paltrow previously called the River Lofts home). The elevator opens onto a sunny vestibule and entrance gallery topped with a skylight; from there, the apartment opens up into an open floor plan with living and dining room spaces lined with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city below. A set of glass doors opens out onto a 10-foot-wide terrace that frames the unit on three sides. A delicate, blue-and-green chandelier hangs above the dining space, and a modern, freestanding fireplace anchors one end of the living room, separating it from the den and television lounge area.
The kitchen largely revolves around a stately wooden center island with a butcher block top, and has white cabinets, and charcoal gray countertops and backsplash. The home has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms; all three guest bedrooms are en suite, while the master suite is the true highlight of the home, with two walk-in closets, a petite boudoir, and an impressive master bathroom with a modern deep-soaking tub, marble countertops, and a separate steam shower. The home features Brazilian walnut floors throughout, and offers views of the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and the World Trade Center.
In addition to their recently sold Tribeca penthouse, Streep and Gummer own a Japanese-inspired midcentury-modern house in Pasadena, California, and a residence near Salisbury, Connecticut.
