Celebrity real estate listings are a common affair in New York, but it’s only every so often that those listings are for actual celebrity royalty. Today is one of those days: Meryl Streep has listed her stunning Tribeca penthouse in the River Lofts condominium for $24.6 million, just months after picking up a gorgeous midcentury gem in Pasadena, California.
Streep, along with husband Donald Gummer, closed on the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom penthouse for $10.13 million in 2006, per public records. That was two years after the New York Times casually reported on their purchase of the “4,000-square-foot penthouse with a wraparound terrace.”
Those basic details of the space have not changed, though its view toward the ever-rising Jersey City skyline has: The terrace still stuns with bushy plantings, and the muted interiors reflect a casual, tasteful style accented by fine abstract art. It almost looks as if the apartment has been plucked from a film by Streep collaborator Nancy Meyers, director of It’s Complicated.
Moving on to the apartment itself: The four-bedroom spread has direct elevator access that opens into a skylit entrance gallery. To the left, a corner living room and library stuns with views over the Hudson River. The kitchen is done up with white cabinets and is anchored by a massive wood island. A den hides off of the kitchen.
The four bedrooms on the apartment’s opposite end include a corner master bedroom with a walk-in closet—the listing shows it empty, implying Streep has already left the apartment behind—a sitting room, and a small master bathroom with a single white marble-topped vanity and a clawfoot tub. The three additional bedrooms each have an en suite bathroom.
The apartment is listed with Jan Hashey and Steve Halprin of Douglas Elliman, who’ve previously repped Streep in real estate transactions; a rep for the brokerage did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Recently, the Streep-Gummers headed west, and bought a beautiful 1950s post and beam in Pasadena for $3.6 million.
