“How I Met Your Mother” star Alyson Hannigan and her “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” actor hubby Alexis Denisof have listed their Los Angeles mansion after buying it less than one year ago.
The pair have listed their English-style abode for $8.795 million after paying $7.89 million for it last winter. They’ve made a number of cosmetic upgrades, including remodeling the kitchen with marble counters, a farmhouse-style sink, new funky mint-green appliances, a chalkboard wall, a white subway tile backsplash that reaches to the ceiling, and new light fixtures. A cozy breakfast nook opens up to the terrace to allow for easy transition from the inside out.
The couple, who also share the home with their daughters, 7-year-old Satyana and 4-year-old Keeva, also refinished the flooring and added a new coat of fresh paint to revamp the home’s interior to complete the cosmetic updates.
Fancy accents abound in the home, including arched doors and windows, vintage tile, and even a bell tower that sits atop the front entrance.
Built in 1936, the 5,864-square-foot home is tucked behind double gates and a pond in the Brentwood Park neighborhood of L.A. and features a roughly 1,000-square-foot poolside guesthouse with vaulted ceilings, skylights, French doors, a bedroom and bathroom, an art studio, and a crafts room.
Upon entering the 4-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom, two-story estate lies a grand central entrance with a curved staircase and light hardwood floors. On one side of the staircase is a slightly sunken living room with a stacked stone fireplace, and on the other side is a formal dining room.
Two bedrooms are located on the upper floor, each with its own en-suite bathroom. The third is a spacious master suite that has a large sitting area, a fireplace, a bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower stall and jetted tub, a private terrace, and even its own gym room. Both the ceiling and crown molding has been painted in light blue to mimic the skies above.
The white-walled home has its own office with a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves that open to a sun-drenched stone dining terrace through French doors.
Out in the back are various patios, a spacious eating area, lush greenery, and a sprawling pool that can be easily accessed both from the main house and guesthouse. The home also has a two-car garage.
The Hollywood couple also continues to own a 4,186-square-foot home in Santa Monica that they purchased for $1.936 million in 2002 and are renting it out for $17,500 a month. This 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom Spanish revival home has been completely renovated with modern amenities, yet still retains its old-world charm.
The home’s gourmet kitchen features built-in window seating and a spacious dining area. The large master bedroom boasts vaulted ceilings, a kiva fireplace, and a quaint balcony overlooking the lush gardens and pool.
Alyson and Alexis have certainly enjoyed successful acting careers, but it looks like they have an equally successful hand at real estate as well.
