Today is Jemima Kirke Source’s birthday! It’s been a year since the website went online, and we’re so glad of all the content we could put out there for you guys, it’s not always easy but it’s all there! And we still haven’t finished! There’s so much to do! A lot of magazines to buy, movies and interviews to screen cap, and all I can say is that I hope there’s more and more! We love Jemima!
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.
This might be a little on the border on what’s okay to post, but I guess any advertising is good advertising when you want to sell something. The house is so beautiful and I love all the interior design and details inside but it comes as no surprise when it’s Jemima’s house.
The family home of ‘Girls‘ actress Jemima Kirke lists in East Hampton for $3M
The home has a private beach on Gardiners Bay
The adorable waterfront family home of Jemima Kirke—the actress best known for her role as Jessa in the hit HBO series Girls— has just listed in the Springs neighborhood of East Hampton for $2,995,000 under Compass Real Estate agent James Petrie.
Originally built in 1900, the 2,000-square-foot home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms on a half-acre lot located right on Gardiners Bay. It’s been completely renovated and designed over time by her mother, Lorraine Kirke, an interior designer and the owner of the home.
Exterior features include an iron gated entry, a private beach, cedar deck, pool, and spa. Inside, a rustic theme is found throughout the space with an iron beam in the kitchen, hardwood floors, and walls of windows that allow for direct water views.
Kirke also utilized unique wallpaper choices as accents, including a bold print in the dining space off the kitchen and the lofted master bedroom—which also has French doors leading out to a private balcony.
The house was up for sale last year as well, at which time it was asking a pricier $3,575,000. Since then, it looks like it’s gotten some updates and redecorating.
According to agent James Petrie, the zoning on the property would allow for a 3,778-square-foot structure. Because of the water at the back, those additions would likely need to be at the front part of the current house if the new owner decided to expand.
Flaunt Magazine interviewed Alex Cameron on September 15, 2017 and they released some polaroid footage from behind the scenes of music video Stranger’s Kiss. Read and view photos below.
ALEX CAMERON TAKES US DEEPER INTO THE STORY BEHIND “STRANGER’S KISS” VIDEO WITH EVOCATIVE POLAROIDS
Alex Cameron is an Australian singer-songwriter who mixes acting and music in the character-driven vein of singer/raconteurs like Tom Waits and David Bowie; in his case taking on the persona of a motel-hopping, down-and-out urbanite plying his music in the grimy streets of New York City. This tendency towards character and story allows Alex to create a unique aesthetic that ties his music and his videos together into beautifully damaged pieces of brilliant storytelling. His voice and style seem like a natural fit for Angel Olsen, an acclaimed American singer-songwriter who has had dreams of becoming a pop star since she was young, and made good on those dreams with a series of mournfully gorgeous records conjuring worlds of love lost and beauty in pain.
As expected, Cameron and Olsen’s voices blend harmoniously together in the duet for “Stranger’s Kiss.” What wasn’t expected was the beautifully strange storyline for the visuals that Cameron and director/actress Jemima Kirke created to pair with the song. Cameron, appearing as a hustling subway busker, stars in the music video alongside Kirke, Cameron’s down-and-out admirer, who combs the city frantically for the man she loves. In the video, Kirke starts off on her own, carrying a folded photo of Cameron, displaying it for others to see out in the streets of New York. She eventually finds the musician in the photo at the subway train station, essentially doing the same thing she was doing–attempting to grab the attention of pedestrians passing through. The strangers end up finding comfort in each other’s familiarity and share a “Stranger’s Kiss”.
We had Alex continue his vision for the video’s story with a series of polaroids paired with poetic, eerie captions that show a romance blooming out of desperation in the grimy cracks between the city’s facade:
Jemima’s about the same height as my mother. I’ve got the same look as her father. There’s nothing wrong with two strangers getting what they need out of each other.
The very talented musician Alex Cameron and also boyfriend of Jemima was interviewed by Rolling Stone (Australia) magazine and he mentions Jemima, see quotes below.
It’s been two years since Cameron set foot on Australian soil, where he started with esteemed electronica trio Seekae (who are still active). The closest thing he has to a home base these days is New York, the setting for his newfound romance with Girls actor Jemima Kirke.
“If we have five days off, we go to New York. We spend a lot of money on flights. Me and Roy both [have] romantic engagements in New York, and that’s a beautiful thing to have if you’re a touring musician, and you have a partner that tolerates that — or they have their own shit going on so they actually require you to be absent.”
Kirke directs and stars in the video for Cameron’s duet with Angel Olsen, “Stranger’s Kiss”, the shoot for which was captured by paparazzi. “A friend sent that through to me,” he marvels. “Jesus Christ, isn’t that fucking ridiculous?”
“She’s had a big impact on the visual direction of the record,” Cameron adds of Kirke.
“We rely heavily on the input of our vastly more intelligent partners. Women have been a huge impact on what we do as musicians and writers. We don’t have much money, we rely on people seeing that they can get something out of us in terms of creativity. I do feel like I’m in a decent place emotionally,” he concludes. “I feel very attached to love, and work.”
