Before buying a penthouse at Tribeca’s 92 Laight Street in 2004 for $9 million, three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep called this lovely townhouse in Greenwich Village home. She purchased the five-story brick residence at 19 West 12th Street for $2.1 million in 1995, and then sold it 10 years later for $9.1 million to heiress Libet Johnson, according to LL NYC. Built in 1895, the home retained much of its historic detail when Streep resided there, but it’s since been given an uber-contemporary makeover, most notably the Calacatta marble master bathroom that the listing describes as “unequivocally one of the most sensational in the city.”

The late Greek Revival home has 12-foot ceilings on the parlor floor, mahogany pocket doors, original moldings, six fireplaces, and a caretaker’s apartment on the garden level. The living room has two street-facing, floor-to-ceiling windows and leads to the formal dining room. Both rooms have EcoSmart ventless fireplaces.

Off the dining room, French doors lead to a deck with stairs to garden.

In addition to the guest studio apartment, the ground floor features the massive chef’s kitchen, which boasts two refrigerators, two dishwashers, a four-burner stove with griddle and built-in wok burner, wine cooler, and room to seat 16. The stainless steel and bright orange room opens directly to the garden.

On the third floor is an office or small bedroom, large bath and dressing room, and a guest bedroom with an ensuite bath, and on the fourth floor are two more bedrooms and baths. The fifth floor houses the master suite, complete with a fireplace, 25-foot-wide skylight, large walk-in closets with skylights, and a dressing room. It’s also here that you’ll find the 450-square-foot master bath drenched in Italian Calacatta marble and spanning the width of the townhouse with a fireplace, cast iron bathtub, and freestanding shower.

There’s also a planted rooftop garden and a basement with extra storage and a laundry room.

Johnson sold the home in 2007 for $12.8 million; the current owner, countess and entrepreneur Elisabeth de Kergorlay, then picked it up for $13.5 million in 2008. She first listed it this past February for nearly $35 million, so perhaps the latest chop will get it off her hands.
