San Francisco’s famed ‘Full Home’ residence sells for beneath asking
The 1883 Italian San Francisco Victorian, famous for appearing in the opening credits of the ’90s sitcom “Full House” and the reboot of Netflix “Fuller House”, was finally sold after more than a year on the market.
The 1709 Broderick Street home was first listed for $ 5.99 million in May 2019, only to be reduced to $ 5.75 million in September 2019 and then again to $ 5.5 million in February 2020. It sold for $ 5.35 million this month.
The house was bought for $ 4 million in 2016 from Jeff Franklin, the inventor of Full House. Franklin bought the house with the intention of renovating the interior so that it looked more like the sitcom set. However, his permits were revoked after neighbors complained that the renovated home would be even more of a draw for “full house” fans.
There are five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms spread across the 2,484 square feet of the home. The interior has 11-foot ceilings and original moldings, though it has nothing to do with the house where a widowed father (Bob Saget), three adorable daughters, best friend (Dave Coulier) and brother-in-law (John Stamos) live ) live. The show was shot in a Burbank studio, as was the reboot, and fans are often confused as the show’s opening credits make the house look like it’s one of the Painted Ladies in Alamo Square.
The house has recently undergone a major renovation and now features a Richard Landry design with bespoke kitchen cabinets, marble countertops and brass fittings.
The buyer can still keep a little show nostalgia, as there is a small, secret garden on the spacious terrace and in the English garden, in which the handprints and signatures of the show are cast in cement.
