Have you met luxury? If not you might want to check out How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris’ mega mansion located in Sherman Oaks, just listed for $2.995 million. The home is a study in all things upscale and fabulous with numerous amenities for large-scale entertaining as well as a decor that ranges from relaxing and therapeutic to bold, brash and stylish.
The home located high in the hills on Stone Canyon Avenue in Sherman Oaks is sophisticated and stunning with six bedrooms, four full bathrooms and one-half bath over 4,191 square feet. Harris bought the home four years ago with husband David Burtka after living in a modest ranch in Studio City. It seemed this home was the perfect fit for Harris, Burtka and their two young children as just a few years ago Harris took Oprah on a tour of the home for her show, “Oprah’s Next Chapter.”
On the show, Harris led Oprah and her film crew through his twins’ nursery and what he refers to as his “magic man cave,” but there are plenty more luxury amenities that this home boasts. It is the perfect setting for large-scale dining, featuring a formal dining room that can host more than 10 people with plenty more room for entertaining on the seating area on the vast patio just outside. The grounds of the property also feature an outdoor pizza oven, shower and a pool.
Being one of the top luxury amenities, the gourmet kitchen is not to be overlooked. It has top-of-the-line appliances and a massive island.
Despite these wonderful features, Harris and his family are picking up and moving east. The actor reportedly bought a brownstone in New York last year.
