You're a long way from Stars Hollow, Rory. The New York Post reports that Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel and her husband, Mad Men actor Vincent Kartheiser, have sold their one-bedroom, two-bathroom Brooklyn Heights penthouse for $1.32 million. And while the apartment might be a good deal smaller than the Gilmore mansion (or even Lorelai's house), it's every bit as enviable, thanks to details like custom built-ins, bespoke light fixtures, and the kind of private roof deck every New Yorker dreams about.

Want to see for yourself? We've got photos of the space ahead.

The duplex apartment takes up the top floors of an eight-story building that was built back in the 1880s.

This smartly-done chef's kitchen is just the right size.

We love everything about the breakfast nook. The light fixture. The plants. And the shades are motorized!

Beautiful built-ins give the main living area plenty of storage, while the oversized artwork emphasizes the vertical scale of the room.

Seriously, check out those 18-foot ceilings.

The master suite loft might be tiny, but it gets a ton of light.

The spa-like bathroom is huge and comes complete with a soaking tub.
