An exquisite Fort Greene celebrity brownstone has just hit the market for $5,600,000. One of Brooklyn’s landmark properties at 52 South Oxford St., this five-story 1860s mansion boasts 5,600 square feet of floor space, in addition to a huge basement level and a lovely garden patio.

The open chef’s kitchen features a Paperstone island, Miele refrigerator and Wolf stove with a built-in grill

Fans of the HBO series “GIRLS” may recognize the home, as it was featured as a character (season 2, episode 5, titled “One Man’s Trash”) when Hannah (played by Lena Dunham) wandered into a doctor’s (played by Patrick Wilson) house and had a 24-hour affair. The jaw-dropping home has also been featured on “Difficult People,” “Elementary,” “SNL,” Glamour Magazine, Food and Wine Magazine, and in numerous commercials.

While it has been completely gut-renovated to its current modern state, the property has managed to retain its original craftsmanship and historic charm. The majestic pre-war Italianate facade gives an indication of the beauty beyond the front door.

“The home is just so comfortable, spacious, eclectic, and gorgeous you really never want to leave it,” says broker Amy Wendling of Douglas Elliman. “You walk in and you know it’s home.” Currently configured to accommodate three separate families—with strong rental income—there are five sweeping living areas and seven stunning bedrooms. Ideal for cooking for friends and family, the open chef’s kitchen is graciously appointed with a Paperstone island, Miele refrigerator, and Wolf Stove with built-in grill.
