In November 2013 Girls star Zosia Mamet (you may know her as Shosanna) and her boyfriend, actor Evan Jonigkeit, purchased a multi-family house at 896 Flushing Avenue in Bushwick (of course she wanted to live in the world’s seventh coolest neighborhood) for a little over $1 million. The couple had planned to convert the entire 2,500-square-foot home as one single-family dwelling, but less than a year after moving in it’s back on the market, now asking $1.6 million.
The home currently has 21 rooms, including eight bedrooms and four full baths. Whoever takes it off Zosia’s hands will have the option to leave it as a large, single-family house, have an owner’s residence with income-producing units, or convert it to all rentals, with the potential to increase the square footage to 5,192 (nearly double the current footprint) with six apartments.
A wide staircase leads from the terraced garden to the rooftop with Manhattan views. There is a finished basement, a washer/dryer, and a home gym. The farmhouse-style kitchen was recently updated with new appliances.
But what everyone’s wondering is why is Ms. Mamet jumping ship so soon? Perhaps living in the same neighborhood as Shoshanna got to be too much…
