Meryl Streep’s Exquisite Former Greenwich Village Townhouse Asks $22.5M
Actress Meryl Streep has owned properties all over Manhattan, with one of her city holdings just recently selling for $15.8 million. While the movie star parted ways with this gorgeous West Village townhouse years ago, it still has that elegant Meryl Streep glint. Hopping on and off the market for the past few years, the circa-1845 Greek Revival now wants $22.5 million, a significant price change from the almost $35 million Zillow shows it was seeking in 2016.
Boasting a 25-foot wide façade, 6,750-square-feet of interior living space, and 2,750-square-feet of gardens and terraces, it’s no wonder Streep was drawn to the property. According to Mansion Global, the A-lister added it to her real estate portfolio in 1995 and held onto it for 10 years, a lifetime in celebrity-home years.
The light-filled parlor floor is ideal for entertaining with an easy flow from living areas to the dining room and then out onto a terrace. With most of the rooms providing an airy atmosphere thanks to bright white walls and ample windows, the contemporary kitchen is a bold surprise decked out in glossy, red cabinetry.
On the fifth floor, the master suite is a vision with a skylight and soaring 15-foot ceilings. Its almost as wondrous as the picturesque rooftop terrace, which of course is just moments away.
Along with holding five bedrooms in total, the home has an added 1,250-square-foot basement level where conveniences like laundry, extra refrigeration space, a wine cabinet, and storage are tucked away. Everything has been thought through at this impeccable pad, and with a past owner like Meryl Streep, who would expect anything less?
Roberta Golubock and Mark Thomas Amadei of Sotheby’s International Realty hold the 19 West 12th Street listing.
