Indie stud Adam Driver’s star is quickly rising thanks to his chameleon-like abilities to play characters ranging from Hannah Horvath’s troubled and emotionally rich boyfriend on “Girls” to the diabolical villain Kylo Ren in the new “Star Wars” films. Now it appears Driver is looking to take on yet another role: homeowner. Like his “Girls” cohorts, Driver’s interest in multi-million dollar properties has been piqued, and The Post reports the actor was recently spotted touring a townhouse at 154 Hicks Street in Brooklyn Heights (the nabe where Girls’ creator and lead Lena Dunham also lives). The now-vacant home was formerly used as a multiple-unit rental property and is currently listed for $4.79 million as a 5,444-square-foot single-family residence.
Remember that season on Girls where Lena Dunham‘s character falls for a handsome doctor with a gorgeous, pristine renovated brownstone? The townhouse that hosted those episodes is, in fact, the same 5,600-square-foot landmarked home that just hit the market for $5.6 million. Located at 52 Oxford Street in leafy, historic Fort Greene, it’s currently owned by actor, screenwriter, and sometimes interior designer, Billy Morrissette, and according to the listing, also did star turns on Elementary, SNL and Difficult People. But the five-story 19th-century beauty with thoughtfully chosen and luxurious finishes, a sprawling deck, a deep landscaped yard and an industrial-chic glass-walled sun room has plenty of star power even when the cameras aren’t rolling.
