“I have gardened under the stars on hot days, and sat by the cosy fire while the snow piled up on the terrace,” Streep said in a statement to The Wall Street Journal. “This has been a great home for us, and I hope another family can now enjoy it as much as we have.”

Streep told the Journal in August 2019 that she and her husband were selling the penthouse because they were moving to California.
