How Many “Girls” Does It Take to Fill Lena Dunham’s Brooklyn Apartment?

Dunham? She’s a West Village Girl Now

Lena Dunham is nothing if not busy. The Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning actor, writer, producer and director of HBO’s wildly successful show Girls, has a lot on her plate these days. She’s working on a second book, producing the dramedy Camping (also for HBO), and she’s set to star in Quentin Tarantino’s next film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Not surprisingly, Dunham’s talents also extend far beyond the screen. For instance, she has a propensity for buying homes, like the one in Hollywood which was once owned by George Peppard from A-Team fame and more. Or, her lavish apartment in Brooklyn, which she purchased after selling her place in Brooklyn Heights, and which is now back on the market because she’s moving to the West Village.

That’s right, the Brooklyn apartment that she bought just last year for $2.9 million is back up for sale for $3 million. Here are some of the renovated space’s eye-catching highlights.

Formerly the Gretsch Musical Instruments Factory

Dunham’s three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath apartment is in the former Gretsch Musical Instruments factory. A corner apartment, the rooms are large and airy, with 13-foot-high ceilings and oversized windows encompassing nearly every external wall. The space was recently renovated by architect David Bers to adopt a clean, minimalistic design with custom cabinetry, plenty of natural light, a fireplace, and two walk-in closets.

The location is an enviable one with it being just a short walk from the NYC Ferry and the Marcy Avenue stop on the J/M/Z line. It also sports incredible views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the East River. The building is also conveniently close to plenty of restaurants, shops, grocery stores, and parks.

Building amenities include a doorman, a resident manager, a handyman, a library lounge, bike storage, and a scenic rooftop terrace. It’s also pet-friendly. In short, the building has everything Hannah Horvath would ever want.

A High Maintenance Chef’s Kitchen

One of the most attractive features of this high-rise apartment is its posh u-shaped chef’s kitchen, despite the fact that Dunham once shared how she doesn’t like to cook in her article for Lenny, My Mom Didn’t Cook, and Neither Will I. Nevertheless, the space boasts a SubZero refrigerator, a commercial-grade Wolf stove, and pristine white marble countertops.

The custom cabinetry provides a nearly infinite amount of smart storage and practical workspace. And, you’ll have the guarantee that all those high-end appliances were barely ever used.

No Need for Tiny Furniture Here

With 1987 square-feet of living space, Dunham’s condo was designed with comfort and openness in mind. The spacious master bedroom (21’3″ x 13’11”) comes complete with walk-in closets through which residents are lead to a luxury master bath with white marble floors, a soaking tub, and stand-alone shower.

The bedroom features a raised platform for the bed, which allows you to wake up to stunning views of the water. The master bedroom is also separated from the other two bedrooms, which are located closer to the entry, for greater privacy.

The living room is generously sized at 17’7″ x 21’10”, so it can easily accommodate virtually any type of furniture you might have. The room’s fireplace makes for the ideal spot for winding down after a long day. And, the open concept allows for the best possible parties for you and all your guests.
