Report: Neil Patrick Harris Buys Harlem Brownstone for $3.6 Million

When Neil Patrick Harris started his real estate search, the actor wasn’t shy about it and went straight to Twitter, asking his more than 6.5 million followers if they knew of a brownstone in Harlem for sale.

Someone from Twitter — or perhaps a real estate agent — helped him out. The New York Post reports that Harris recently found his new brownstone, an 8,000-square-foot one backing up to Marcus Garvey Park in Central Harlem, for $3.6 million.

Five bedrooms and 5 baths are spread over the 5-story residence, which includes 2 terraces, a backyard, chef’s kitchen and plenty of space for Harris, his fiance and their twins, Harper and Gideon.

Harris got his start playing a teenage physician on “Doogie Howser, M.D.” He currently stars on the long-running sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” and is one of the highest paid actors on television. He will be hosting the upcoming Emmy Awards on Sept. 22.

Harris also owns a home in Studio City, CA and previously lived in another apartment in Harlem.
