Hollywood Couple Alyson Hannigan And Alexis Denisof Seek $18 Million For Encino Estate

How I Met Your Mother star, Alyson Hannigan, and her husband, fellow actor Alexis Denisof of Angel fame, are selling an architectural masterpiece home known as the Sherman Residence.

At $18 million, a sale near the listing price would be more than twice the $7.95 million the couple paid for the Encino compound back in 2016, according to records.

Like its famous occupants, the Sherman Residence has been featured in an array of films and tv shows, including Fun With Dick and Jane and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The 3.26-acre compound, set in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains, was completed in 2001 and designed by Los Angeles-based architect Peter Tolkin. Hallmarks of its pedigree designer can be seen throughout the 7,605-square-foot home - including the contrasting use of concrete and glass. Deep wooden eaves supported by rafters shelter and unify the structure.

At once open and enclosed, the home's fortified appearance of board-foamed concrete volumes is paired with wood and glass pavilions connected by gallery spaces that amount to an airy courtyard. A swimming pool and spa surrounded by lawn sit at its center.

Clean lines and sleek materials run throughout, with embellishment and adornment used sparingly for a minimalistic finish. Stone floors and wooden ceilings lend a chic rusticity to the interiors.

At the same time, the home possesses an understated complexity in both shape and style.

High ceilings and walls of windows bring an atrium-like vibe to the dining room. Tall narrow windows flank the stainless-steel range and hood in the center island kitchen.
