When we took a look at the real estate of the stars of “Girls,” we said the characters “live in Greenpoint, not the Upper West Side.” The same cannot be said for their real-life digs, as evidenced by Zosia Mamet’s (she plays Shoshanna on the hit show) purchase of a pretty bland Upper West Side co-op. According to city records released today, she paid $1,225,000 for the two-bedroom apartment at 522 West End Avenue. We knew she was looking to relocate–she and her boyfriend listed their Bushwick house back in October, and it recently sold–but we can’t deny that we’re a little surprised by her choice.
The apartment was updated, but retains its pre-war charm, boasting solid hardwood floors, original wainscoting, high ceilings, large windows and layout perfect for entertaining. The kitchen was most recently renovated with white marble and plenty of storage. Situated on the first floor, it has its own private entrance to the building’s patio.
There are two bedrooms and the possibility for the third. The oversized master has four closets.
While we don’t advocate for Zosia adopting Shoshanna’s girly, bubblegum-pink design aesthetic, we do hope she’s planning to jazz this stuffy place up a bit.
