Just steps off Fifth Avenue in the heart of Manhattan sits a red brick townhouse fit for the queen of American cinema. Meryl Streep owned this beauty until 2005, when she sold it for $9.1 million. It’s changed hands a couple of times since then, and is now on the market for $28.5 million.

The five-story Greenwich Village home still holds the charm of its origins, which trace to 1845, and is rich in modern conveniences, including a sleek chef’s kitchen with two Miele ovens, two dishwashers, a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, and warming drawers.

The adjoining dining area boasts a wall of windows that open onto the backyard garden. The “parlor floor” on the second level features a large living room and a formal dining room, both with 12-foot ceilings and fireplaces. A bar area connects them, and a terrace on that floor includes a staircase to the garden.

The townhouse spans 6,585 square feet with five bedrooms and eight baths, including a fifth-floor master suite with a skylight that extends the entire 25-foot width of the home, and a dressing room with its own skylight. The suite’s Italian marble bath is a vast expanse of luxury: It measures 450 square feet and offers a spa-like experience with a fireplace, a cast iron soaking tub and a freestanding shower.
