Where does Meryl Streep live?
Although she owns a massive New York City penthouse, Meryl Streep’s most recent and property purchase and primary home is a stunning $3.6 million mid-century style home located in Pasadena, California. Meryl Streep house has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and hadn’t been up for sale for an impressive 50 years and still has some of the original architectural elements from its first construction in 1959.
These include the doors, fireplaces, windows, and floors. The home spreads across 3,087 square foot and has a kind of a Japanese-inspired interior throughout. This is seen through the open plan living areas, airy floor plan and super high ceilings which lets in an abundance of natural light.
The home has some pretty impressive views, from the view of beautiful Pasadena in every area of the house, including the bedrooms which each have floor to ceiling windows. And you can even sit back and take in the breathtaking view of the San Gabriel mountains. The backyard is surrounded by beautiful trees which create some added privacy for the actress, her husband, and their guests.
Outside there is a large swimming pool where the family can cool off during the summer months, as well as a 1.97-acre office/studio for sculptor husband Don.
According to property records, as of May 2019, Meryl has completely overhauled the home. From the HVAC system to the garage, the plumbing, the pool, in addition, everything has been renovated. Here’s to hoping she does a spread in Architectural Digest so we can see what she’s done to it!

Meryl Streep House Connecticut
The purchase of the West Coast home is actually a pretty big deal, as Streep and her hubby tend to stick far away from the fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle, whilst spending the majority of their time in Salisbury, Connecticut. Their home on the east coast is spread across 90 acres and cost the pair $1.8 million. It is super private due to being hidden by large stone walls. The main home is also blocked by several smaller buildings, which include two barns, a cottage for the caretaker, and husband Don’s studio.
The home is set on a 20-acre lake, which is privately owned by Streep. The lake curves around the residence and offers a relaxing vibe to the home.
