Acclaimed actress Meryl Streep is widely regarded as the best actress of her generation, boasting 19 Academy Award nominations, 29 Golden Globe nominations, and five Grammy nominations. Unsurprisingly, Streep has lived in some impressive five-star homes, bouncing from California to New York and back again. Recently, her former Greenwich Village apartment came back on the market, listed with Corcoran for a cool $28.5 million.
Streep moved out of the five-story townhouse back in 2014, and it's truly a sight to behold: The massive 6,585-square-foot home is unheard of by New York standards, boasting 15 bedrooms and an entire floor dedicated to an outdoor garden. The residence at 19 W. 12th St. was built in 1845 in the late Greek Revival style. Step inside Streep's former apartment and experience the luxury for yourself.

Okay, so who else is picturing the elegant Streep eating breakfast out here? It's a dream.
