The first Meryl Streep movie I saw was Kramer vs. Kramer. I didn’t see it until several years after its release. I enjoyed it. At the time I understood her acclaim as an actress. Now she’s widely regarded as the greatest actress of all time. With 21 Academy Award nominations and winning three of those nominations, it’s hard to argue otherwise.
Since Kramer vs. Kramer, I’ve seen most of Meryl Streep’s movies. I always look forward to them. Not only is she fun to watch on screen, she has a knack for picking great scripts.
But this isn’t about Meryl’s acting prowess or career, this is about her new home in Pasadena, California. We set out a fabulous gallery below.
She bought this three-bedroom and three-bath house for $3.6 million. The house has a mid-century design with a modern touch. It is a 3,087 square foot house that was designed by the renowned architects Smith and William. It has glass walls and high ceilings. From each room, you will get a beautiful view of the landscape. There is green ground in front of the house with huge trees. The house has a little bit of Japanese inspiration as well.
I love the long drive to the house, which stands sleek as only mid-century modern can. The property is large and private, yet the home, while beautiful and iconic, is not palatial. Check it out:
