Meryl Streep boasts an impressive 42-year history in Hollywood, so it’s only fitting that the acting legend is now associated with a house that has an equally impressive legacy. The award-winning actress purchased the 3,087-square-foot home in Pasadena, California, for $3.6 million, marking the first time the gorgeous late-1950s mid-century modern home has changed hands in nearly 50 years. The home, which originally had an asking price of $4.125 million, features a winding, tree-covered drive that opens up to the noticeably low-slung estate.
The home, located on one of Pasadena’s most prestigious streets, includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and was designed by lesser known midcentury architects Whitney Smith and Wayne Williams, who incorporated plenty of windows and skylights into the space for maximum natural light. The living area is high-ceilinged, with wood panels and tiled walls that help add texture to the interior of the open-plan home. Each bedroom, scattered throughout the house’s wings, also features floor-to-ceiling windows. The backyard features a stunning tree-framed view of the iconic Colorado Street Bridge.
