Actress Meryl Streep is still trying to sell her 4,000-square-foot penthouse in New York City's posh TriBeCa neighborhood. Streep purchased the full-floor residence with her long-time husband Donald Gummer in 2006. She has been trying to sell it for over a year now, reducing the price by some $6 million.

The residence comes with landscaped terraces on three sides, offering panoramic views of the Hudson River, New York Harbor, and the Statue of Liberty. If that wasn't enough, the southern terrace also overlooks downtown Manhattan, while the northern one faces such iconic sights as the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings.

The home occupies the entire top floor of the River Lofts, designed by National Design Award–winning Tsao & McKown architects. Enveloped on three sides by a 10-foot-wide landscaped terrace, the penthouse also offers floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors from which to enjoy views of the Hudson River and downtown Manhattan.

An entry gallery is illuminated by a large skylight. From the entryway, a hallway branches out toward four bedrooms, while the main living spaces are to the left and directly ahead.

The apartment offers four bedrooms, as well as four and a half bathrooms, plus a separate study area. Brazilian walnut flooring runs throughout the home, which also comes complete with a Poliform Varenna kitchen, Lutron lighting, and Waterworks bath fixtures.

Directly in front of the main entrance is a cozy family room. The space looks out onto the terrace and offers an intimate spot for relaxing.

Opposite the family room is a larger formal living area. The space is warmed by a wood burning fireplace and dressed in a clean, modern aesthetic.

The open living room is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides. The corner location also looks out onto the wrap-around terrace and views of the Jersey City and downtown Manhattan skylines.

In another corner of the open space is a dining area. There is room for a large table and direct access to the southern terrace.

An Italian-designed kitchen is discretely hidden behind the dining area. Outfitted for entertaining, a large butcher block island sits in the middle of the space, surrounded by two ovens, a Miele six-burner cooktop, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. There is also direct access to an outdoor kitchen with built-in grill and preparation area.

A small office is located off the kitchen, complete with built in cabinetry and shelving. The nook is made bright and airy from the large doors and east-facing window.

In an opposite corner of the apartment, the master suite offers floor-to-ceiling windows along two sides, as well as direct access to a private section of the terrace. The bright space also includes not one but two full bathrooms.

Striking sunset views can be enjoyed from the terrace, which also overlooks the Statue of Liberty and New York City Harbor.
