“Girls” star Jemima Kirke is unloading her Carroll Gardens townhouse, and it’s an eye-catcher with a style that’s a match for her character on the HBO show: romantic, bohemian and unpredictable.
Kirke picked up the house, at 408 Clinton Street, in 2013, and subsequently had it overhauled by architect Richard H. Lewis, the design force behind Balthazar and Tavern on the Green.
He gave the four-story single-family a warm, boho vibe, with points of interest that include the rustic kitchen, with its eclectic, vintage appointments, and the covered rear deck, with a mosaic-tile floor and sloping, wood-paneled ceiling.
Then there’s the master suite, which features a freestanding clawfoot tub on a pedestal by the foot of the bed, a remarkable walk-in shower with vintage-style fixtures and double Chinoiserie doors and a dressing room/office with 60s-throwback fringed pendant lamps.
There are four bedrooms, an office space, a roof deck and an open parlor floor with floor-to-ceiling windows and a wood-burning fireplace with a marble mantel. The garden floor is an open space that held Kirke’s art studio.
Kirke and her then-husband (soon to be ex, thus the sale presumably) bought the place for just over $2 million; post renovation they’re looking for $4.49 million. James Joshua Viscardi of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing on the house, which will be shown at open houses both Saturday and Sunday. What’s your take on it?
