VIDEO: Neil Patrick Harris gives a holiday tour of his Harlem brownstone

December 21, 2016

Neil Patrick Harris and hubby David Burtka first made real estate headlines when they purchased a $4 million Harlem brownstone in 2013, setting a neighborhood record. They then spent over a year renovating the five-story residence at 2036 Fifth Avenue to be the perfect family home for their twins Gideon and Harper (now five years old) and two dogs. Last year, the couple invited Architectural Digest in for a tour, showing off their elegant but fun design choices, impressive art collection, and restored architectural features. They’ve now opened up their home again, this time for Vogue’s 73 Questions (h/t Apartment Therapy), complete with Christmas decorations.

Harris says his vision for the home was for it to be “like some adventurer’s club with a genius bar inside.” He shows off the eclectic, off-beat collection of items in his office, including a vintage typewriter, his Tony and Emmys, and the actual booth from “How I Met Your Mother.” On the main parlor level, there’s an original Banksy, a full vintage bar, and the enormous, gold-decorated Christmas tree. After looking around, we can definitely see why Harris’ life motto is “great good times.”
