The Tribeca home belonging to “Girls” creator and star Lena Dunham’s artist parents Carroll Dunham and Laurie Simmons, which was the set for her 2010 film “Tiny Furniture,” sold for $6.25 million, according to records filed with the city yesterday.

Dunham herself announced that her family’s time at the 16 Desbrosses Street apartment had come to an end in an Instagram photo she posted last week.

“Thank you for letting us live and love and shoot movies in you,” she wrote in the photo’s caption. “I cried in all your rooms and threw up in all your toilets and cherished all your views and figured myself out among your white cabinets.”

The spread measures 3,600 square feet. It’s set up as two bedrooms, a studio space, two full bathrooms and two half bathrooms, according to the listing, which also said the home can be reconfigured into a four-bedroom residence.

Cool features include a 40-foot-long living room, three exposures and high ceilings.

Terry Naini of Town Residential, who declined comment, had the listing.

The home hit the market in late November for $6.25 million, according to StreetEasy. It entered contract in mid-February.

Dunham’s father, Carroll, is a painter known for his work that touches on abstraction and figuration. His wife, Simmons, who starts in “Tiny Furniture” alongside her younger daughter, Grace, is a photographer and filmmaker.

Press representatives for Carroll Dunham did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment. — Zachary Kussin
