Alexander Skarsgård, the Swedish actor who starred in “True Blood” and the recent movie “The Northman,” is shopping around his Manhattan penthouse for five years for $2.6 million dollars.
That’s $300,000 more than he paid for the device in 2017, but the price increase comes with some upgrades. Skarsgård remodeled the place during his half-decade stay, remodeling the kitchen and repainting the walls and warm pine floors.
Found in the East Village, the pre-war house sits atop a townhouse built in 1845. It’s part of a cooperative and $2,222 monthly HOA fees pay for maintenance, a total direct director and common garden.

The home shows its age in a good way with its stone fireplace, exposed brick walls and rustic beamed ceiling divided by five skylights. Modern interiors include marble in the kitchen, motorized shade in the bedroom and a custom brass wall in the bathroom.
The floor plan currently has one bedroom, but the listing claims to be able to add a second room. It also comes with roof rights, so buyers can build a private terrace overlooking the New York City skyline.
Emma St. Laurent and Stephane Guerrier of Compass keep the list.
A native of Stockholm, Skarsgård served in the Swedish army before moving to the United States. He is best known for a role in 2001’s “Zoolander,” and his recent film credits include “The Legend of Tarzan” and the TV shows “Big Little Lies” and “Succession.”
