Meg Ryan has largely disappeared from the big screen over the last few years. With the exception of random headlines about her love life, she has all but vanished from public consciousness. Once known as "America's Sweetheart", a few personal missteps (and some ill-advised plastic surgery) knocked her off her pedestal, and she has had trouble climbing back up there ever since. Recently, she popped up in real estate headlines, as she put her Beverly Hills mansion on the market. Now, she has started house hunting in Manhattan. She already has one home in Soho, so whether she is shopping for a second East Coast abode, or is planning to unload her downtown property for something farther north, remains to be seen. Regardless, nothing about her (potential) new home, hints at the fact that she has not had a successful film in the last five years.
Meg Ryan's house (which is not yet definitively hers, mind you) is 3,300 square feet and has two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. The house also features a large kitchen with a breakfast nook, a separate dining room, multiple fireplaces, and high ceilings. Meg Ryan's house has massive rooms, and is only a few blocks from the home she shared with her now ex-husband, actor Dennis Quaid, on 5th Ave. The house also has lovely views of Central Park. Whether the $7.2 million property will actually become Meg Ryan's house, is still up in the air, but we're sure whatever she decides will make the news. America has not quite given up on its "Sweetheart" yet.
