Meryl Streep and her husband, Don Gummer have listed their 3,944-square-foot Tribeca penthouse for a whopping $24.6 million, more than twice the original purchase price of $10.13 million which they put down back in 2006.
The news comes just a few months after Streep and her husband reportedly bought another property in the northeast: the late-1950's mid-century residence tucked in the foothills of Pasadena, California, marking the first time in 50 years that the property has been purchased.
The duo had brought the house for $3.6 million, well below the tagged price of $4.125 million. The house, which was designed by the award-winning mid-century architects, Whitney Smith and Wayne Williams, is located along one of Pasadena's most prestigious streets, right above the Arroyo Seco Riverbed with a view of the Colorado Street Bridge- infamously known as the Suicide Bridge."
'The Devil Wears Prada' star has closed down the 4,000 square-foot penthouse in the River Lofts condominium which almost looks like a house pulled out from the sets of a movie. The home, which consists of four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, is all elegance and art, which makes sense given that Gummer is an accomplished sculptor known for his large, free-standing abstract works.
The unit is accessed by a private elevator, which opens onto a vestibule and entrance gallery with a skylight.
There onward, the apartment opens up onto a combination corner living and dining room area that includes an entire 33-foot-long stretch of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the skyline and a set of metal-trimmed glass doors opening out onto a ten-foot-wide terrace.
A chic freestanding fireplace helps to separate the living room from a den and television lounge area, with a more formal dining area sits just adjacent to the living room couches. A unique and sculptural chandelier hangs above the dining room table, resembling pale glass ice crystals.
Elsewhere on the floor is a spacious, sun-lit kitchen with a large wooden center island with a butcher block top, chalk-white cabinets and grey countertops and backsplashes. The apartment is apparently listed with Jan Hashey and Steve Halprin of Douglas Elliman, known to have repped Streep in her real estate transactions.
In the listing, the house has been described as: "What makes this Penthouse so special is the brilliant combination of a townhouse sensibility and a loft-like openness, all on one floor...Designed by Tsao & McKown Architects, as a modern, elegant reflection of the historic loft buildings of Tribeca, 92 Laight Street has 38 apartments, and one Penthouse, available for the first time since the building's inception in 2003."
