Harlem's most expensive townhouse is off the market — and Neil Patrick Harris is busy making it his own.
According to Curbed, NPH and his husband, David Burtka, purchased their 8,000-square-foot, four-story home on Fifth Avenue between 125th and 126th streets for just under $4 million. The townhouse, listed by Corcoran, has four bedrooms, two terraces, a backyard, a rooftop, and a state-of-the-art chef's kitchen. In other words, it's huge.
"We like the city of Manhattan," the actor told Charlie Rose when asked why he decided to buy in Harlem. "We looked at places that were bridges away, but we kind of wanted to be in it, and I think for the most bang for your buck financially, Harlem is a pretty good buy. Once you have kids, and a family... We're looking at a bedroom for us, individual bedrooms for them, a guest room, an office — a five-bedroom place in Manhattan? That's not inexpensive. So, we looked a little north, and found a good spot."
