True Blood alum Alexander Skarsgård is ready to part ways with his historic East Village co-op.
The actor — who’s currently entertaining movie goers as the avenging Viking prince Amleth in the action-filled epic The Northman, now playing in cinemas — is looking to fetch $2,599,000 for his New York City home.
According to our sources, Skarsgård bought the apartment approximately 5 years ago, then embarked on an extensive renovation process that modernized the unit without altering its historic character.
The studio apartment has loft-like proportions and stands out with its exposed brick walls, tall, wood-beamed ceilings, and stunning pre-war details.
Among the latter: a wood-burning marble fireplace that anchors the living area, as well as original pocket shutters.
Bathed in light by five skylights, three southern-facing windows and a large casement window, the studio apartment boasts carefully refurbished original pine flooring.
As part of the extensive renovation work, the Swedish actor also added a brand new kitchen — fitted with custom European white oak cabinetry, Carrara marble countertops, a Bertazzoni range and Bosch refrigerator and dishwasher.
During Alexander Skarsgård’s ownership, the apartment was configured as a one-bedroom — and a stunning one at that.
The bedroom is also skylit, for residents to enjoy clear, starry nights (or utter privacy thanks to its electric shades) and features plenty of storage, maximized by custom European white oak floor-to-ceiling closets.
But it can easily accommodate a second bedroom, and future owners can also add a private roof deck with views of Downtown Manhattan and the Freedom Tower. According to the listing, roof rights are included with the sale.
Skarsgård’s apartment is set inside an East 10th Street townhouse that, alongside five other 19th century buildings, form a highly coveted cooperative of 29 apartments.
The building sits on one of the most idyllic tree-lined blocks of the East Village, between Second and Third Avenues in the St. Mark’s Historic District.
The desirable location places it within blocks of Union Square, Astor Place, and Tompkins Square Park.
Emma St. Laurent of Compass holds the listing.
