Plenty of Room for Dragons in New Emilia Clarke House
Venice is the Site of the New Emilia Clarke House
Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen may have her sites set on moving to Westeros and claiming the Iron Throne, but real life actress Emilia Clarke has just bought an ultra modern lair in Venice, CA, for $4.64 million. Although it has only two bedrooms, there’s a 30-foot dragon bath, er, swimming pool, so she can take care of her fire-breathing charges when they swoop in for a visit.
The 30-year-old English actress who stars as in HBO’s critic and crowd-pleasing drama Game of Thrones looks like she’ll be putting Me Before You in the two-story bachelorette pad that was completely remodeled in 2009 by the hip architects at Abramson Teiger. The sleek, 2,817-square foot home features lots of light, let in by large windows and floor-to-ceiling glass doors, which completely retract.
The house centers on an interior courtyard for privacy, shaded by 80-year-old olive trees. There are also floor-to-ceiling custom wood bookcases in the living room, giving a colorful, cozy feeling to the home’s modern lines.
The open kitchen features sculpted soapstone countertops, a center island, a marble back splash, and Scandinavian-style custom wood cabinetry. A great room with a dining area flows from the kitchen. And the master suite is fit for the king of Clarke’s choice, with gorgeous views, a huge closet, and generous, light-filled master bath.
As for location, Clarke won’t even have to saddle up and fly over to the chic shops and restaurants of Abbot Kinney, as her new home is just a few short blocks away.
The home’s also within cup-of-sugar-borrowing distance from the super chic Marmol Radziner-designed home we featured recently. That’s the kind of hallowed hood we’re talking about. It’s five minutes from the beach, max, and only 15 minutes from LAX. But the Khaleesi will still have to rely on Dragon Air if she wants to dabble in the Game of Thrones.
