Streep has garnered more critical acclaim than perhaps any other actor. She has been nominated for an Academy Award 21 times, winning three: best supporting actress for “Kramer vs. Kramer” in 1979; and best actress for “Sophie’s Choice” in 1982 and “The Iron Lady” in 2011. She has received 31 Golden Globe nominations and won eight times. Other notable films include “The Bridges of Madison County,” “Adaptation,” “The Devil Wears Prada” and her role as Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham in “The Post.”
Streep’s 4,000-square-foot condo comes with private elevator access to the unit and a 10-foot-wide terrace overlooking the Hudson River, according to the listing. The open plan design of the unit and abundant floor-to-ceiling windows mean nearly every room has impressive views. Despite its plethora of windows, the condo still has wall space to display large pieces of art. Overhead adjustable lights can be positioned to showcase paintings or other wall hangings.
The building, River Lofts at 92 Laight St., is a 19th-century warehouse restored in part by architects Tsao & McKown.
In keeping with the building’s warehouse past, the condo has sturdy columns dividing up the walls of windows and a few industrial-style accent pieces, such as metallic doors and a slate gray fireplace. Designers relied on pocket doors to divide many of the rooms.
The kitchen, outfitted with Varenna cabinetry, comes with high-end appliances that include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, two Miele ovens and a Bosch dishwasher. The butcher block island matches the Brazilian walnut flooring that runs throughout the unit.
The master suite makes up one entire end of the condo with two walk-in closets and two separate bathrooms, according to the listing. Wall-length windows offering stunning north and west views. Window shades create versatility by providing some opacity but still allow partial sunlight to enter the room. A second bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom and the remaining two bedrooms share the final full bathroom. The unit’s only half bath is centrally located for guests.
The 10-foot-wide terrace wraps around three sides of the condo unit. With mature plants and a surrounding brick wall the outdoor seating area almost feels like the backyard of a house.
Monthly maintenance fees are $8,162 and provide for a concierge, full time doorman, private storage, on-site gym and garage parking.
