The Brooklyn property that "Girls" actress Zosia Mamet is selling is like Shoshanna, the character she plays on the HBO series -- ambitious, quirky, and a bit of a mess. Like Shoshanna, the town house at 896 Flushing Ave. doesn't quite know what it wants to be when it grows up.

The listing calls the 22-foot wide building a "rare opportunity" to buy a mixed-use property on the East Williamsburg/Bushwick border. The now-pink town house has so many possibilities -- an owner's residence with income-producing units, an investment rental property, or a brand new project with the building potential of over 5,000 square feet with six apartments.

But for now, the property is a 2,508-square-foot triplex with an English basement (aka garden apartment), six bedrooms and four baths. It also features:
  • a terraced garden.
  • a rooftop with open views.
  • a farmhouse-style kitchen.
  • proximity to subways.

Bushwick Daily says Mamet bought the building a year ago for $1.039 million. She's now asking $1.6 million – not a bad, half-million profit -- if she can get it.
