Alexander Skarsgärd, an Emmy-nominee for his role in “Big Little Lies” and star of “True Blood,” has just purchased a co-op at 119 East 10th Street for $2.3 million, $300,000 over the asking price (h/t LLNYC). The East Village apartment once belonged to actress Parker Poseywho sold it in 2008 for $1.3 million. Chloe Sevigny also lived in the same building for a few years before making the move to Brooklyn in 2013. The newly-single Swedish actor, who first looked at a penthouse at 415 East 6th Street back in December, chose the historic loft-like one-bedroom, which features wood-beamed ceilings, oversized windows and a communal garden, instead.
The pre-war apartment is located on the top floor of a townhouse in the heart of the East Village, in the St. Mark’s Historic District. With an open-layout, the apartment feels spacious with its exposed brick and original wide plank floors.
While still retaining its historic charms, the apartment’s kitchen has been fully upgraded and includes a bath, laundry and wood burning fireplace.
The top floor boasts access to a roof deck with sweeping Manhattan views. Plus, amenities of the co-op include a common garden, a live-in super and basement storage. The location makes this co-op truly special, with Union Square, Tompkins Square Park and all that the East Village has to offer just a few steps away.
