If you’re a 30something Bay Area buyer, we’ve got some bad news for you: your dream home just went off the market. The good news? That dream home (the Full House home, of course) went to the best buyer you can imagine. The best buyer who isn’t YOU, of course…
That house? The iconic Lower Pacific Heights property that the Tanner family “lived in” on the hit show Full House.This Painted Lady was prominently featured in the opening credits and throughout many episodes, giving viewers from coast to coast a peek into an idyllic 80s and 90s childhood in trendsetting San Francisco. The house hit the market in May with a $4.15 million ask, with millions left wondering what would happen to this childhood fave.
So who eventually scooped up the property? The perfect buyer. Jeff Franklin, Full House’s creator, bought the house this fall and, immediately, painted the door back to its iconic red. With the keys in hand, Franklin is planning to renovate the interior to match the show (which was filmed on a soundstage) and, ultimately, will turn it into a destination for fans. And he won’t need much help—Franklin tells The Hollywood Reporter, “There are probably 250 fans per day that show up and take a picture in front of it.”
While you may have missed out on your chance to own a piece of your childhood, under Franklin’s ownership it sounds like there’s going to be tons of opportunities to get up close and personal with the Tanners. We’ll be waiting!
