English drummer Simon Kirke, of Free and Bad Company and father to “Girls” actress Jemima Kirke, sold his Hamptons beach cottage for almost $1.4 million over the summer, and it looks like he’s used those earnings to buy a Manhattan home. Though he allegedly toured a $1.7 million spread at the famed Dakota in August, the Observer reports that Kirke spent of $1.3 million on a corner co-op at 201 East 17th Street in Gramercy.



The very standard looking apartment is quite underwhelming compared to the hip, quirky East Hampton cottage, as well as to the uber-Bohemian and vintage Greenwich Village townhouse he shared with his ex-wife Lorraine. It does come with two bedrooms, a private balcony, and a modern kitchen, as well as pretty nice views from the 20th floor.

Daughter Jemima lives with her husband and two children in a Carroll Gardens brownstone that she bought in 2013 for $3 million. Her former home was filled with “boudoir-like antiques and trinkets,” as 6sqft previously noted, so perhaps she can add a little rockstar edge to dad’s new digs.
