After meeting on the set of How I Met Your Mother, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka have quickly become one of our favourite celebrity couples. Flash forward to today and the two actors have been together for over eighteen years. As proud parents to twins Harper and Gideon, the Harris-Burkta bunch are known for their epic Halloween family portraits. In fact, some of the photos might have been shot in their dreamy Harlem brownstone.
As the listing states, the couple hired LA interior designer Trace Lehnhoff and award-winning architect Jeffery Povero to transform their 8,000-square-foot, five-storey home. After owning the property for almost a decade, The New York Post reports that the couple has recently sold the light-filled Harlem brownstone for a record-breaking $7.1 million.

Neil and David moved into this stunning five-story home in 2013. As soon as you walk inside, you can’t help but admire the original woodwork.
Described in the listing as “a truly unique space” the five-bedroom, six-bath brownstone shows just how beautiful restored interiors can be.
Dream City Kitchen
David is both an actor and a professional chef. Of course, the family’s brownstone wouldn’t be complete without a gourmet kitchen.
Although the couple’s brownstone is in the heart of Harlem, a farmhouse sink is a perfect fit for this New York City kitchen.
