After well over a year on and off the market, Meryl Streep’s penthouse in the West Village has sold. Streep had owned the property since 2006, and first listed it in the summer of 2018 for $24.6 million. Last summer saw the property return to the open market with a substantial price reduction, leaving it at $18.3 million. This month, the sale registered at $15.8 million.
One of the crown jewels of the River Lofts in Tribeca, the thirteen-story building was originally constructed as a warehouse. A second building was added during the conversion, which was completed in 2003.
The full-floor condo spans about 4,000 square feet of living space, and contains four bedrooms and four baths. The design style is understated, and both cerebral and inviting by turns. Mid-toned Brazilian walnut plank runs throughout the unit, giving the spaces a subdued warmth that culminates in the kitchen, where a custom, butcher block-capped island stands as the centerpiece of the room.
The interior square footage is augmented by a large wraparound terrace, a 10’ wide space which adds 2,200 square feet to the total living area. Views from the unit are marvelous, with the Hudson River and the city offering a lower Manhattan panorama to residents.
Streep’s recent film appearances include a leading role in the Soderbergh-helmed Netflix film The Laundromat.
