Last week, Jemima Kirke, who plays Jessa on HBO’s hit series Girls
, listed her Carroll Gardens brownstone for a cool $4.495 million. The actress stands to make a sweet profit if the 19th century property sells for asking price since she purchased it for $2.036 million four years ago, according to Curbed
.The 5-bedroom, 3.5 bath was restored to it’s 19th century glory by renowned architect Richard H. Lewis and has a similar bohemian aesthetic as the Kirke family’s Hamptons home
, which is also currently on the market. Eclectic pieces of art adorn the historic home’s walls and a mix of vintage furnishings creates a chaotic yet charming environment. The kitchen cabinets are all wood, but finished in different colors and styles, immediately showing the residence’s unique personality. Upstairs in the master bedroom, unconventional elements continue with a stand-alone tub sitting between a grand fireplace and the bed.Along with quirky décor, Kirke's dwelling offers open living areas and a roof deck with views of Manhattan’s skyline. James Joshua Viscardi of Brown Harris Stevens
has the one-of-a-kind listing.
