Yes, you can live exactly the way Meg Ryan does, since her cool SoHo loft is  now up for sale.  Architect Joel Barkley and designer Monique Gibson collaborated with Ryan on the design of the 4100-square foot residence. The property was featured on the October cover of Architectural Digest.


The space, an authentic SoHo loft (its building dates to 1888 and used to be a button factory) seems to be a celebrity magnet. Ryan purchased it from Simpson’s star Hank Azaria in 2014 for $8M (ACRIS.) Before Azaria, the loft was owned by artist Cindy Sherman. Prior to when Ryan moved in, the loft underwent a gut renovation.
