Alexander Skarsgard lists his Manhattan penthouse

Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard, best known for his roles in True Blood and Big Little Lies has put his Manhattan penthouse on the market for US$2.599 million.

According to The Dirt, Skarsgard paid $2.3 million for the one-bedroom, one-bathroom penthouse back in 2017, before undertaking extensive renovations.

The top floor apartment is in a 19th-century co-op building in the St Marks Historic District and boasts high exposed beam ceilings throughout, refurbished south-facing windows with pocket shutters, five skylights and original wide-plank pine floors.

The cosy unit features a combined living/dining room with a wood-burning marble fireplace embedded in an exposed brick wall, and a large casement window offering up a garden view.

The galley-style kitchen boasts European white oak cabinetry, Carrara marble countertops, and high-end Bertazzoni and Bosch appliances.

The compact primary suite is fitted with electric window shades and white oak floor-to-ceiling closets, along with a slate-floored bath and brass shower insert, and Waterworks and Duravit fixtures.

The complex includes a communal garden, live-in superintendent and basement storage lockers while Skarsgard’s apartment has roof rights, meaning the new owner could build a private roof deck overlooking the city.
