‘Girls’ and ‘Star Wars’ actor Adam Driver checks out a $4.79M fixer-upper in Brooklyn Heights

January 26, 2017

Indie stud Adam Driver’s star is quickly rising thanks to his chameleon-like abilities to play characters ranging from Hannah Horvath’s troubled and emotionally rich boyfriend on “Girls” to the diabolical villain Kylo Ren in the new “Star Wars” films. Now it appears Driver is looking to take on yet another role: homeowner. Like his “Girls” cohorts, Driver’s interest in multi-million dollar properties has been piqued, and The Post reports the actor was recently spotted touring a townhouse at 154 Hicks Street in Brooklyn Heights (the nabe where Girls’ creator and lead Lena Dunham also lives). The now-vacant home was formerly used as a multiple-unit rental property and is currently listed for $4.79 million as a 5,444-square-foot single-family residence.



The brownstone is indeed in need of some work, but all the bones are there to create one stunning space. Additionally, according to the listing, the home “will be delivered vacant with a valid Certificate of No Harassment and approved plans for the renovation!” As seen above, some digital renderings offer an idea of what could be done.





In all, there are five bathrooms, seven bathrooms and a cellar with full ceiling heights. The five-story townhouse’s historic details include a stoop entry, skylight over the center stairwell, mahogany banister, moldings, mantles and pocket shutters.



There’s also a garden that’s flanked by townhouses on two of its sides.



Hicks Street itself is one of the neighborhood’s prettiest, both tree-lined and rich in other historic structures.
