The adorable waterfront family home of Jemima Kirke—the actress best known for her role as Jessa in the hit HBO series Girls— has just listed in the Springs neighborhood of East Hampton for $2,995,000 under Compass Real Estate agent James Petrie.
Originally built in 1900, the 2,000-square-foot home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms on a half-acre lot located right on Gardiners Bay. It’s been completely renovated and designed over time by her mother, Lorraine Kirke, an interior designer and the owner of the home.
Exterior features include an iron gated entry, a private beach, cedar deck, pool, and spa. Inside, a rustic theme is found throughout the space with an iron beam in the kitchen, hardwood floors, and walls of windows that allow for direct water views.
Kirke also utilized unique wallpaper choices as accents, including a bold print in the dining space off the kitchen and the lofted master bedroom—which also has French doors leading out to a private balcony.
The house was up for sale last year as well, at which time it was asking a pricier $3,575,000. Since then, it looks like it’s gotten some updates and redecorating.
According to agent James Petrie, the zoning on the property would allow for a 3,778-square-foot structure. Because of the water at the back, those additions would likely need to be at the front part of the current house if the new owner decided to expand.
