Just like Game of Thrones, all good things must come to an end, including star Emilia Clarke’s time in her chic, sunny home in L.A.’s Venice neighborhood. Four years after moving into the sleek Abramson Teiger–designed space, Clarke sold the property for $4.4 million just a few days before the end of the year.
The narrow 2,817-square-foot home stretches back from the front entrance alongside a 30-foot pool and multiple outdoor seating areas, with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors opening onto the outdoor space and filling the house with light. The open-plan bottom floor includes a kitchen outfitted with dark soapstone counters and natural wood cabinets that run the entire length of the first floor. A combined kitchen island and breakfast bar overlooks a spacious living and dining area that features 15-foot ceilings and is lined on one side with a full wall of built-in bookshelves.
The main living space opens to the outdoors on both sides.
Those shelves check off one of Clarke’s major decorating must-haves. She shared in 2018 that her late father, who “prized education above all else,” had offered her one crucial piece of decorating advice: “Your bookshelf should be bigger than your TV,” she told Vanity Fair at the time.

Up the floating staircase, above those enviable wall-to-wall bookshelves, are the home’s two bedrooms and two of its three bathrooms. The main suite features a wall of windows overlooking the pool and courtyard, a massive walk-through closet lined with shelves and plenty of hanging space, and a bathroom with soaking tub and spacious walk-in shower. The home and outdoor areas are kept safe from prying eyes by a hedge gate and a tall row of Mediterranean cypress trees.
Another living space is even more open to the outdoor pool area.
The $4.4 million selling price marks a drop not only from Clarke’s reported initial asking price of almost $5 million when she first listed the home in August, but also from the $4.6 million she paid for the house in 2016.
