Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep has just found a buyer for her fully furnished, 1954 home in Los Angeles, and it’s none other than scandalous Yankees player Alex Rodriguez (a.k.a. “A-Rod”), who was recently suspended from professional play for taking performance-enhancing drugs.

Known as the Honnold & Rex Research House, the 3,700-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-(marble) bath home touts walls of glass that open to a courtyard and spa, while its two-story living room is highlighted by a floor-to-ceiling stone wall and fireplace.

The former traditional-style home was redesigned by its previous owner (and award-winning interior designer) Xorin Balbes, and now boasts a contemporary, airy vibe.

Streep acquired the property less than a year ago for $4.5 million, which means her deal with the third baseman scored her a sweet $300,000 profit.
