Alexander Skarsgård is on the move after listing his East Village penthouse for a cool $2.599 million. The Northman star‘s place has stunning pre-war details that shine after he gave his home a sparkling renovation that still gives a nod to its architectural roots. But it’s still a small, but efficient place — remember, it’s Manhattan after all.
The one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment has a lot of swagger, though — original wood beams, a working fireplace, exposed brick walls and beautiful pine flooring that really make this place shine. Of course, the new owner will have to absorb those costly maintenance fees which are a whopping $2,222 per month. The building has some amenities, including storage lockers in the basement, shared garden space and a live-in superintendent for those unexpected emergencies.
The penthouse is perfect for a single person or a couple who wants to take advantage of what the East Village neighborhood has to offer. There are tons of delicious restaurants, a lively night scene and a little more edge than other areas of New York City. Don’t miss the remarkable renovations Skarsgård made to the home — and be sure to check out more photos at Dirt.

While Skarsgård did not take advantage of the property’s “roof rights,” the new owner has permission to build a rooftop deck, which is the perfect place to hang out in the summer.
