Here's a quick check-up on the former Dr. Doogie Howser: Neil Patrick Harris has listed his home in the San Fernando Valley for sale for $2.995 million, seeking a tidy profit on the real estate venture. He bought it four years ago for $2.1 million.

The actor, who recently announced that he is publishing a choose-your-own-adventure autobiography, has been choosing his own adventures in real estate for the past several years -- moving to the Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles from nearby Studio City with his partner, David Burtka, and their twin sons in 2010, and buying a Harlem brownstone to live in while on the East Coast.

Harris' Broadway performance in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" is coming to a close, but it could be that the actor needs to spend more time in New York these days.

This latest real estate move means Harris will have to find a new place to store his magic tricks. In a tour with Oprah Winfrey of the home in The Valley, Harris revealed a hidden room with dramatic red wallpaper where he kept all his magic stuff. He called it his "magic man cave."

The listing describes the L.A. mansion at 3946 Stone Canyon Ave. as a "celebrity compound," and the traditional-style home meets all the celeb-home requirements: gated driveway, a screening room and a kitchen suitable for his partner, a chef -- double Wolf ovens and Sub-Zero fridge. The backyard features a pool, a pizza oven and outdoor shower.

The listing is held by Monty Iceman of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties.

My comment is I wish I could live this way. Unfortunately for now I can only wish . I have a one bedroom coop. You never said never maybe Oprah Winfrey or Warren Buffet can help me get to even a (2 bedrooms coop) hey a mansion will be nice also. I went to College so that one day I can find myself in a nice house, nice car, free of debt , boy was I wrong. But I am not giving up, I have faith. All I need is a chance to get there.
