Meryl Streep lists Tribeca penthouse
Meryl Streep, one of Hollywood’s most treasured and decorated actors, with three Emmys and three Academy Awards — not to mention 18 more Oscar nominations — has her comfortably sophisticated, artfilled penthouse in downtown New York City’s expensively trendy Tribeca neighborhood ready for a close-up of its own in all the property gossip columns. Per property records, and first noted by the eagleeyed kids at Curbed, Streep and husband Don Gummer, an accomplished sculptor, purchased the roomy but not conspicuously large 3,944-square-foot urban aerie in 2006 for $10.13 million. The asking price 12 years later: $24.6 million.
Elevator entry opens to a private vestibule and skylit entrance gallery that spills into a colossal combination corner living and dining room that stretches to 33 feet
long, with floor-to- ceiling windows and metal-trimmed glass doors; these lead to a 10-foot-wide, attractively landscaped terrace that wraps around three sides of the four-bedroom and 4.5 bathroom pad. A freestanding fireplace, which divides the living room from a den/tv lounge, makes a clean-lined, minimalist statement in the living room. A cozy den/office off the kitchen includes floating bookshelves opposite glass doors to a dining terrace where the eye sweeps over the southern city skyline and clear across the Hudson River.
