Best known for her role as Shosanna on “Girls,” actress Zosia Mamet has put her Upper West Side co-op on the market, reports the New York Post. Nearly five years ago, she and then-boyfriend-now-husband Evan Jonigkeit sold their Bushwick house and soon moved into a what we thought was a rather “unimpressive” apartment at 522 West End Avenue. The couple dropped $1,225,000 million on the unit, which they’ve certainly jazzed up over the years, and they’ve now listed it for a barely profitable $1,295,000. The ground-floor two-bedroom has classic pre-war bones and is the only residence with private access to the building’s rear garden. 

The 1,100-square-foot apartment is a “peaceful and accessible residence” that’s like “a charming cottage tucked into one of West End Avenue’s premier cooperative buildings,” according to the listing. It has an entry foyer, off of which is the very private second bedroom.

The foyer opens into the large, open living/dining area, which features the unit’s restored hardwood floors, original wainscotting, high ceilings, and large windows.

The galley kitchen has stainless steel appliances and a cool gray subway tile backsplash.

Off the kitchen is the private entrance to the building’s quaint, 75-foot rear garden. Though the unit is on the first floor, it’s elevated enough that it looks down upon the garden (there’s a staircase through the doorway).

The master bedroom has a large, walk-in closet, as well as two smaller closets.

We’re not sure why the couple decided to list their home but based on a 2016 interview with AFAR Magazine, we’re guessing they’ll be staying in the neighborhood. “What drew us to the Upper West Side is that it’s not in the spotlight. It feels like a normal neighborhood. Everybody is just going about their business,” Mamet told AFAR. Similarly, Jonigkeit said, “It reminds me of growing up in the suburbs and having those faces you can count on seeing every day. That’s hard to find in New York. We love seeing the same people when we’re walking our dog. Some of them have become our good friends.”
