Lena Dunham Nabs Big Brooklyn Heights Condo

BUYER: Lena Dunham
LOCATION: Brooklyn, N.Y.
PRICE: $4,887,600
SIZE: 3,200 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Believe it or not, children, almost two months ago Your Mama received a digital missive from a kindly snitch in the Big Apple who told us that mildly controversial cable television ‘It Girl’ Lena Dunham had covertly acquired a multimillion-dollar apartment in New York’s swank and traditionally somewhat staid Brooklyn Heights ‘hood. Alas, and not for a reasonably lengthy scour of property records, we were unable to sort out the details. However, while we were away on our south of the border sojourn with b.f.f.s Chow Lee, the Laundress and perpetual trouble-maker Fiona Trambeau, the celebrity property gossips at the Daily Mail reported that the eight-time Emmy-nominated “Girls” creator, writer and star surreptitiously shelled out $4,887,600 for a sizable apartment in a brand-new, five-unit boutique building.

Listing details for the prodigiously advanced memoirist’s (“Not That Kind of Girl”) approximately 3,200-square-foot new apartment show there are four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms plus a direct entry elevator that opens to a foyer larger than many two-grand-per-month Manhattan studio apartments. Floor plans included with online marketing materials show a cook-friendly center island kitchen and a 42-foot-plus long combination living and dining room with fireplace and, possibly, an over-the-treetops view of Cadman Plaza Park and the downtown Brooklyn skyline.

Privately situated a good distance from the guest/family bedrooms, the master bedroom includes a walk-in closet and a windowed bathroom with double sink vanity and a separate tub and shower setup. Three additional bedrooms open off a long corridor behind the kitchen. The two smaller bedrooms share a wee hall bathroom, and a third bedroom has a walk-in closet and a bathroom of its own.

Each unit in the Brownstone-style building includes, as per marketing materials, a deeded parking spot in a parking garage with an automated parking system — whatever that is — and, like at least two of the other units in the building, Miss Dunham’s apartment has a covered terrace off the foyer that overlooks the building’s landscaped communal courtyard.

Miss Dunham’s new digs, which she reportedly shares with her FUN front man beau Jack Antonoff, is just a few blocks from the much more humble one-bedroom apartment she bought in the blush of her new fame and fortune in March 2012 for just $500,000.
