Boasting extensive renovations overseen by a renowned architect, this stunning 1883 Victorian beauty is being listed at $5,999,999.
Everywhere You Look…
Anyone who spent Friday nights watching the adventures of Danny Tanner, his adorable kids and uncles Jesse and Joey should recognize this stately Victorian home in San Francisco, which was used in exterior shots as the family home in beloved TGIF sitcom Full House. The four-bedroom home is listed at $5,999,999.
San Fran Victorian
Located in San Franscisco’s posh Lower Pacific Heights neighbourhood, the 3,728-square-foot Victorian home was originally constructed in 1883 and designed by famed architect and builder Charles Hinkel, whose Italianate row houses in the city are highly sought after.
An Ethereal Residence
As the property’s listing notes, the house boasts “soaring ceilings, skylights and a masterful floor plan that allows for exceptional light and movement throughout, creating an ethereal residence that offers comfort, class and opulent finishes.”

The home was purchased in 2016 for a reported $4 million by Full House creator Jeff Franklin, who explained his decision to buy the home in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “The house came on the market and really, I just thought, I have to buy this house,” Franklin said. “I’m so sentimental about the house. It’s great to have the house in our Full House family and be able to preserve it for the fans… seriously, I love owning this house.”
Luxurious Living Room
Located at the front of the home, the expansive living room features high ceilings and a large bay window.
So, why did Franklin decide to sell? “Now that Fuller House is ending, I [have put] the home back on the market. I hope to find a buyer who wants to make it a full house once again.”
Designed by Richard Landry
The renovations were overseen by Canadian-born architect Richard Landry of Landry Design Group, dubbed the “king of the mega-mansion” due to his work on the homes of such stars as Rod Stewart, Wayne Gretzky, Michael Bolton, Kourtney Kardashian and other celebrities.
The stunning new kitchen is reflective of a home that has, according to the listing, “been impeccably renovated to please even the most discerning tastes, with a touch of iconic flair.”
