On the tree-lined streets of Spaulding Square, actress Lena Dunham is asking $2.795 million for her designer-done bungalow built in 1919.

The Emmy-nominated creator of HBO’s “Girls” paid $2.725 million for the Hollywood home in 2015, records show. Before her, it was once owned by actor George Peppard, who starred in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” alongside Audrey Hepburn.

Designer Brenda Antin brought new life to the interior in recent years; original pieces such as the brick fireplace and pane windows now mingle with Swedish wide-plank floors and modern fixtures. The dining room and kitchen add walls of custom built-ins and beadboard coved ceilings.


The main house holds two bedrooms, and at the back of the property, a guesthouse adds a loft, living room and kitchenette. In total, they combine for about 2,500 square feet.

Between the two homes, there’s a romantic backyard with a swimming pool under string lights. Privacy hedges line the space.

Dunham is best known as the creator, director, writer and star of “Girls,” and she won two Golden Globe awards over the course of the show’s six seasons. Her more recent credits include the HBO show “Camping” and the Quentin Tarantino film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
