Just when you thought the “Games of Thrones” starlet would reach Westeros, she heads for the West Coast.
Daenerys has some new digs, and they’re much cooler than anything in King’s Landing. Actress Emilia Clarke has purchased a sun-drenched piece of Venice, CA, real estate to the tune of $4.64 million. And while the platinum-haired Game of Thrones Mother of Dragons would look right at home in the hipper-than-thou town, we’re guessing Emilia (who’s a brunette in real life) will do just fine too.
The new Venice, CA, chapter of House Targaryen was built in 2009 and is a two-bedroom, three-bathroom spread measuring 2,817 square feet. The use of natural light was paramount in the design of the modern space — the architects at Abramson Teiger worked to bring light into every room, creating a sense of tranquillity. An elegant living room with soaring ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling bookcase seamlessly flows to the outdoor space through a wall of sliding glass doors. Outside, a lush garden, lounge area, and 30-foot swimming pool are perfect for relaxation. In the kitchen, soapstone countertops, a marble backsplash, and custom wood cabinetry create a cozy sensibility, while the center island makes preparing food easy. Upstairs, a bright and sunny master suite overlooks the garden and pool, while a spacious, custom-designed closet provides plenty of space for Emilia’s growing red-carpet duds. With 80-year-old olive trees and lush landscaping, this coveted property is truly one of a kind.
When it comes to real estate, Emilia’s GoT co-star Lena Headey seems to be drawn toward the same modern architectural style, though her 2014 purchase was located in the San Fernando Valley town of Sherman Oaks, CA. Either way, there are plenty of properties out there with the same chilly temperatures as Westeros or Essos. However, the commute to the Seven Kingdoms must be a killer.
