Acclaimed actress Meryl Streep is widely regarded as the best actress of her generation, boasting 19 Academy Award nominations, 29 Golden Globe nominations, five Grammy nominations—the list goes on. It goes without saying that 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 6585-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 popular during that time. Step inside Streep's former apartment and experience the luxury for yourself.
These wall to ceiling windows allow the sunlight to flood the room ensuring you have enough light even when it's winter.

Black flooring isn't something you see every day, but we're into it.
Red patent kitchen cabinets is a bold move but we think it matches Meryl Streep's fearless personality perfectly.
Okay so who else is picturing the elegant Streep eating breakfast out here? It's a dream.
Private views of the city? Yes, please.
