“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke has been playing the real estate game—and she didn’t come away unscathed.
Clarke, 34, just sold her eye-catching pad in Venice, CA, for $4.4 million, realtor.com® can confirm. Juliette Hohnen from Douglas Elliman and Ruby Fay of Pinnacle Estate Properties held the listing. Katie Pardee with Halton Pardee + Partners represented the buyer.
The “Mother of Dragons” decided to fly away from the sleek architectural she purchased in 2016 for $4.64 million. In August 2020, she listed the property for just under $5 million. After dropping the price the following month to $4.7 million, she slashed the asking price again in November to $4.5 million, eventually agreeing to the $4.4 million, which left her with a slight loss.
The actress may not have been able to spend much time in the home over the four years she owned it, possibly due to her hectic filming schedule, both for the HBO series and for movies such as “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
She put the home up for rent in 2018, at $25,000 a month, and she had listed it for lease in 2017 as well.

Built in 2009, the striking residence designed by the architecture studio Abramson Teiger features two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,817 square feet.
The living room has 15-foot ceilings, built-in bookshelves that surround the fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Massive glass doors completely open out to an outdoor patio, seamlessly melding the indoor and outdoor living areas.
In the open kitchen, soapstone counters in the kitchen pair with custom wood cabinetry that runs the length of the first floor. On the main level, a den and office also open out to the courtyard.
The floating staircase leads to both the en suite bedrooms, including the master retreat with an extensive walk-in closet and spalike master bathroom.
The property is gated and designed with privacy in mind, and its outdoor space comes with 80-year-old olive trees and a courtyard with a 30-foot pool and covered veranda.
The secluded sanctuary nevertheless has a prime location, around the corner from the shops and restaurants of bustling Abbot Kinney and close to the beach.
Acclaimed for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” which ran from 2011 through 2019, Clarke, who is from London, also appeared in the romantic comedy “Last Christmas.”
She’s set to star as the poet Elizabeth Barrett in the upcoming movie “Let Me Count the Ways,” as well as to voice the part of Malicia in the animated film “The Amazing Maurice.”
Clarke made her West End theater debut in London last March in the role of Nina in Anton Chekhov‘s play “The Seagull,” when the production was shut down due to the pandemic.
