Dutch actor Michiel Huisman, well-known for his role as rugged lover/fighter Daario Naharis on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” has purchased a big, sunny corner loft in the Macintyre Building at 874 Broadway in the Flatiron district for $2.2 million, according to Luxury Listings and city records. Like the character Huisman portrays, the two-level loft is charmingly rough at the edges yet undoubtedly handsome.

12-foot ceilings, historic loft windows and generous floor space make the apartment, as the recent Sothebys listing puts it, “an ideal canvas for renovation,” such as creating two bedrooms, or just enjoying the current dual-level open loft format.

The bright, white loft kitchen area is a perfect spot to take in all-day sunlight from two exposures. A central island with built-in seating looks cool, comfortable and custom-made, as do built-in bookshelves. Cityscape and Union Square views will remind the Dutch heartthrob, who also appeared in HBO’s critically-acclaimed “Treme,” “Nashville” and “Orphan Black” as well as several films, that he’s in one of Manhattan’s hottest 21st-century neighborhoods.

Built by Ewen McIntyre in 1892, the elevator co-op is a block from Union Square, five blocks from Madison Square Park and near some of the city’s best restaurants, hotels, markets and shops.

The building permits pied-a-terres–good for actors–and pets (though no mention of dragons); Huisman is married to actress Tara Elders, and the couple have a daughter, Hazel Judith. If it all sounds too G-Rated, you can enjoy slightly a more PG eyeful of the smoldering swordsman here at NYMag.
