A West Village townhouse that Meryl Streep once called home sold for just about half of its former asking price.

Frozen food mogul Elisabeth de Kergorlay originally listed the Greek Revival townhouse at 19 West 12th Street in 2016 for $35 million, according to the New York Post. It sold to a limited liability company, 19W12 LLC, for $17.25 million, according to property records. It was last listed for $22.5 million.


Streep purchased the property for $2.1 million in 1995. She sold it to the late heiress Libet Johnson for $9.1 million about a decade later, according to the publication. Johnson then rented it to Diandra Douglas, Michael Douglas’ ex-wife, before de Kergorlay acquired the home in 2008 for $13.5 million in 2008.

The five-story, 6,750-square-foot townhouse has five bedrooms as well as a landscaped garden and a planted roof deck. The fifth-floor master bedroom is particularly opulent, with a marble fireplace and a 450-square-foot bathroom.
