The well-documented softening of New York’s luxury market has led many sellers of high-priced properties to slash asking prices—and even beloved, Academy Award-winning actors aren’t immune.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Meryl Streep, actual celebrity royalty, has re-listed her stunning Tribeca penthouse, which first hit the market last summer. When it initially listed, the four-bedroom apartment at the River Lofts condo was asking $24.6 million; now, the price has dropped to $18.25 million. The Oscar-winning actress also switched brokerages, from Douglas Elliman to Sotheby’s International Realty.

“I have gardened under the stars on hot days, and sat by the cozy fire while the snow piled up on the terrace,“ Streep told the WSJ in a statement. “This has been a great home for us, and I hope another family can now enjoy it as much as we have.”

Streep, along with husband Donald Gummer, closed on the 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.”

The terrace encircles the entire apartment, and has views of lower Manhattan and the Hudson River.

The apartment itself is a stunner: It’s entered via its own private elevator landing, which leads into a long gallery with a skylight. The living room is off to the left, and has stunning views over the Hudson River; a kitchen (with a gorgeous wood island and white cabinets) and study are beyond that. The master suite has two walk-in closets and two bathrooms, as well as direct access to the terrace, which encircles the entire place. It is, as we said last summer, “as if the apartment has been plucked from a film by Streep collaborator Nancy Meyers, director of It’s Complicated.”

As for Streep, she’s relocating to the West Coast, per the WSJ; last year, she picked up a gorgeous midcentury gem in Pasadena, California.

The apartment at 92 Laight Street is listed with Juliette R. Janssens and Allison Bandier Koffman of Sotheby’s International Realty.
