BUYER: Zosia Mamet
LOCATION: New York City, NY
SIZE: (approx.) 950 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Contrary to the decade-plus long mass exodus of young New Yorkers from Manhattan to Brooklyn, “Girls” star and showbiz scion Zosia Mamet has traded her three-story faux-quoined townhouse in Brooklyn’s hipster-approved but — let’s be honest, butter beans — still seedy Bushwick ‘hood for a much smaller and recently renovated maisonette apartment in the much less gritty and far more gentrified heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side that the celebrity real estate gossips at 6sqft first revealed and property records confirm young Miss Mamet bought for $1.225 million, well over the $1.079 million asking price.
Listing details show the approximately 950-square-foot courtyard-facing apartment, on the ground floor of a terra cotta tile encrusted full-service pre-war co-operative apartment house just off bustling upper Broadway and one long block from leafy Riverside Park, has a proper foyer, two bedrooms — the larger of which has four closets, just one freshly marble tiled and blessedly windowed bathroom and a roomy, parquet-floored combination living and dining room that stretches almost 30 feet from end to end. (Listing details note that the dining area can easily be converted to a third bedroom.) A petite but smartly configured and freshly rehabbed galley-style kitchen with white raised-panel cabinetry, granite countertops, grey subway tile backsplashes, medium grade appliances and a door to one of the building’s common areas.
In addition to the erstwhile, three-unit Brooklyn townhouse that she and her up-an-coming actor boyfriend Evan Jonigkeit bought together in November 2013 for $1.037 million and sold just a few weeks ago for $1.375 million, 26-year-old Miss Mamet, the daughter of two-time Oscar-nominated screenwriter and playwright David Mamet and Oscar-nominated actress Lindsay Crouse, previously owned a snazzy cottage just a couple short blocks from the beach in Venice, CA, that she picked up in April 2010 for $1.2 million and sold with little or no hullabaloo in July 2013 for $1.45 million.
