Here’s a quick check-up on the former Dr. Doogie Howser: Neil Patrick Harris has listed his San Fernando Valley home 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 Sherman Oaks from Studio City with his partner, David Burtka, and their twins in 2010, and buying a Harlem brownstone to live 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 esate move means Harris will have to find a new place to store his magic tricks. In a tour of the Sherman Oaks home with Oprah Winfrey, 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 his Sherman Oaks-area 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.
