A women-friendly West Village townhouse with a history of successful female owners and renters — including multiple Oscar winning actress Meryl Streep, the late socialite Libet Johnson, divorcée Diandra Douglas and, most recently, frozen food entrepreneur Elisabeth de Kergorlay — has sold for $17.5 million, according to property records.

That’s far less than the $35 million that Belgian-born de Kergorlay, founder of frozen food line Babeth’s Feast, first listed the 19th-century home for back in 2016.

Built in 1845, the brick Greek Revival townhouse at 19 W. 12th St. comes with what has been called “one of the most opulent bathrooms in New York.”

The 25-foot-wide, five-story home boasts its own elevator, 6,750 square feet, five bedrooms, along with a lacquer red chef’s kitchen, a landscaped garden and a planted roof deck.

“This is a good 25-footer on the West Village’s Gold Coast. There’s not that many,” a real estate insider said.

Details include 12-foot ceilings, mahogany pocket doors, crown moldings, floor-to-ceiling windows, six fireplaces and a formal dining room.
