Jemima has put up her townhouse for sale and everything about it is just amazing! She has such an eye for interior design.
It wasn’t so long ago, at the zenith of the hype surrounding HBO’s millennial dramedy Girls, that one of its stars, Jemima Kirke (who played the perpetually messed-up Jessa), shelled out $2.036 million for a Carroll Gardens brownstone. (It features prominently in a “Life in Pictures” photo essay she participated in for New York in 2014.)
But now, a little over four years later, it looks like Kirke is ready to move on: WWD reports that she’s selling the four-bedroom home for $4.495 million. James Joshua Viscardi of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing, which just hit the market today.
The turn-of-the-century brownstone was “magnificently gut renovated and restored to its nineteenth century grandeur,” according to the listing, and bits of Kirke’s bohemian side (she started out as a painter, not an actress) also shine through. Art covers the walls, and there are decorative touches—like a freestanding vintage tub in the master bedroom—that give the place character.
On the practical side of things, the home has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms; an inviting, open kitchen that connects to a deck; and a roof terrace. It’s currently set up as a single-family home, but the basement could be converted to an income-producing apartment. (Kirke used it as her studio.)
There’s an open house on Saturday should you want to check it all out for yourself.
