The Oscar winner, 70, first listed the nearly 4,000-square-foot apartment with Douglas Elliman back in August 2018 for $24.6 million, and it was recently sold by Sotheby’s International Realty for $15.8 million — almost $10 million less than the asking price.
The bright four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath penthouse spans the entire top floor and features gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows with dazzling views of the Hudson River, Statue of Liberty, and the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings; as well as a 10-foot-wide landscaped wraparound terrace perfect for outdoor entertaining.
Streep and her husband, Don Gummer, bought the condo at River Lofts back in 2006 for $10.13 million, according to Business Insider. The building has housed other celebrities, including Gwyneth Paltrow, who lived in River Lofts for some time.
The media room area includes a built-in wall-mounted television, and can be from the central living area by pocket doors.
Other striking details from the open-concept penthouse include Brazilian hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace and an Italian-designed kitchen.
