“Girls” star and rock royalty Jemima Kirke has just listed her boho-chic Brooklyn brownstone, according to WWD. The 19th-century townhouse at 408 Clinton Street in photogenic Carroll Gardens has been restored and decor-ed to luxurious hippie-glam perfection by popular architect Richard H. Lewis and now seeks a buyer for $4.5 million.
Restored by the architect responsible for the cozy elegance of Balthazar and Tavern on the Green, this south Brooklyn home has retained plenty of historic detail like classic French moldings, Italian marble mantles and a wood-burning fireplace with modern comforts like new HVAC seamlessly added. Kirke’s penchant for laid-back glamour adds a completely unique feel from the opulent chandeliers to the richly-hued painted walls. On the parlor floor, a loft-meets-country kitchen frames an impressive vintage-style range, with a rustic wood breakfast bar and plenty of entertainment space nearby.
A tile-topped, terrace overlooks a sunny and tranquil Brooklyn back yard. A wood-beamed ceiling makes it a rainy day retreat as well.
The second floor is a suitably lush master suite, complete with an indulgent dressing room/lounge and a claw- foot tub. On the top floor are three more bedrooms and a private roof terrace with stunning views of lower Manhattan.
The legal two-family residence is currently configured as single-family home, but the potential remains for expansion.
