The new home of Emilia Clarke, star of “Game of Thrones,” may only have two bedrooms, but at least it has 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 Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s crowd-pleasing drama recently purchased an ultramodern home in Venice, CA, for $4.64 million.

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 enormous 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 superchic Marmol Radziner-designed home we recently featured. That’s the kind of hallowed hood we’re talking about. It’s five minutes from the beach, max, and even only 15 minutes from LAX. But if the Khaleesi is still intent on taking the Iron Throne in Westeros, Dragon Air will be her only option.
