Alyson Hannigan Sells Encino Mansion for Record $16 Million

By Jack Flemming

Encino just saw one of its biggest sales ever as “How I Met Your Mother” star Alyson Hannigan and her husband, actor Alexis Denisof, unloaded their architectural estate for $16 million.

It’s the most ever paid for a home on the market in Encino, beating out Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s $15.2-million sale in 2021. But the record price came in 2019 in what’s known as an off-market sale — that is, a home changing hands outside of the Multiple Listing Service — when another Jonas brother, Nick, and his wife Priyanka Chopra quietly paid $20 million for a 20,000-square-foot mansion.

Hannigan and Denisof, both of whom starred in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” doubled their money on the deal. Records show they bought the property for $7.95 million in 2016.

The prized compound is known as the Sherman Residence, and it’s unlike anything else on the market in the San Fernando Valley. Comprised of pavilions marked by wood, glass and concrete, the estate has starred in multiple films and TV shows over the years, including “Fracture,” “Fun With Dick and Jane,” “CSI: Miami” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Beamed ceilings slice through the top of each space, hanging above gallery-like rooms with fireplaces and walls of windows. The 7,600-square-foot floor plan includes five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

The three-acre grounds also feature a swimming pool, spa, guesthouse, standalone gym, tennis court, bocce court and three-car garage. Sycamore, orange, avocado and palm trees spruce up the space.
