Actor Alexander Skarsgård has just listed his top-floor townhouse co-op at 119 East 10th Street for $2,599,000, roughly $300,000 more than he paid in 2017 for the East Village apartment, which once belonged to actress Parker Posey (Chloe Sevigny also lived in the same building before heading to Brooklyn in 2013). The Emmy-nominated star of “Big Little Lies” and “True Blood” oversaw a thorough renovation of the loft-like one-bedroom home, giving its pre-war details and wood-beamed ceilings a careful upgrade, a renovated kitchen, and more (h/t Architectural Digest).

The fourth-floor walk-up at the top of a 19th-century townhouse is classic East Village architecture, albeit with a modern, high-end renovation. Framed by exposed brick walls and wood-beamed ceilings that hit 12 feet high, the main loft-like space is divided into dining and living areas.

Details like a wood-burning marble fireplace and original pocket shutters have remained, as has, of course, the top-floor southern light enhanced by five skylights and a large casement window.

The most recent renovation saw an update of the home’s original pine flooring and windows and the addition of bespoke details like light switches. 21st-century additions include central air conditioning and a Miele washer and dryer.

The renovated kitchen has a decidedly European feel, with white oak cabinetry, understated Carrara marble countertops, a Bertazzoni range, and a Bosch refrigerator and dishwasher.

The sleek bathroom has slate flooring and a custom brass shower insert designed to softly reflect light from the skylight above.

The skylit bedroom boasts electric shades and European white oak floor-to-ceiling closets. Though the unit is currently configured as a one-bedroom, an alternate floor plan illustrates how it could easily gain a second bedroom. Roof rights are included with the property, which means a private roof deck with downtown Manhattan views is a possibility.

The co-op residence is one of six 19th-century townhouses on a tree-lined East Village block. The pet-friendly building offers a common garden, a live-in superintendent, and basement storage lockers.
