Alyson Hannigan Lists One Property And Leases Another

The “How I Met Your Mother” star is saying goodbye to her New England–style home that's as wholesome as “American Pie.”

From hit sitcoms (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) to movies (American Pie) and back again (How I Met Your Mother), it looks as though actress Alyson Hannigan could foray into a career as a real estate investor. Hannigan and her husband, actor Alexis Denisof, just listed their four-bed, six-bath spread in the ritzy Los Angeles, CA, suburb of Brentwood for $8.795 million, after just buying it less than a year ago! And that’s not all: The real estate power duo are also listing their Santa Monica, CA, house for rent.

The 6,484-square-foot Brentwood, CA, home for sale is full of charm. In the living room, crown moldings and hardwood floors complement the cozy stacked-stone fireplace, while in the den, a library and fireplace open out to a patio area. There’s also a large formal dining room that leads to a recently remodeled chef’s kitchen with an oversized island and mint-green stove. A cascading staircase leads upstairs to three en-suite bedrooms. In the master suite, there’s a sitting area, walk-in closet, oversized bathroom, private balcony, and a separate office/gym. Spread out over 27,000 square feet of land, the home, built in 1936, is tucked behind gates with a circular driveway. A sparkling swimming pool and spa sit next to a three-room guesthouse measuring 1,000 square feet with its own living room, Jacuzzi, fire pit, and sound system.

In addition to this listing, Alyson and her husband have put another property on the market, but this time for rent. For the bargain price of $17,500 per month, you can live in the couple’s five-bed, six-bath Spanish revival in Santa Monica. The 4,186-square-foot home, which the couple bought back in 2002 for $1.936 million, is a rare architectural beauty built in 1930. It has been fully renovated to highlight the Old World details but updated with modern amenities. Tucked behind a gated courtyard with lush, mature gardens and water features, the home welcomes guests into a dramatic formal entry. The chef’s kitchen is complete with built-in window seating and a roomy dining area, ideal for entertaining. In the spacious master bedroom, there’s a kiva fireplace, vaulted ceiling, and a romantic balcony overlooking the gardens. The expansive backyard is the perfect private oasis with a grassy yard and swimming pool.

No word on where Alyson and Alexis are moving, but with all these real estate deals in the pipeline, does it mean Alyson could have her own spinoff co-starring her HIMYM husband Jason Segel waiting in the wings? Fingers crossed!
