The Stunning Price The Full House Residence Sold For

If you were a fan of the sitcom "Full House," you likely have a favorite character. Maybe you were super responsible and identified with DJ Tanner, the oldest sister, or had a goofier side to you and liked to think of yourself more as a Kimmy Gibbler. You may have adored the Olsen twins' character, Michelle Tanner, or maybe even had a crush on Uncle Jesse. Either way, the show has captured the hearts of many, and after "Fuller House" was released, and with the recent passing of beloved TV dad, Bob Saget, the interest in "Full House" is back.


And while each character had their own special traits, one of the most beloved is the home in which most of the scenes were set. According to Business Insider, the main home that we see in the opening credits was different from the home the Tanners lived in — in fact, the two properties are about a mile away from each other. Still, both homes have become famous for being on "Full House" and both have been sold for quite a pretty penny.

The home in the opening credits was sold in 2014

The home many fans think of when they think of "Full House" is the classic San Francisco home situated among the iconic homes referred to as The Painted Ladies. If you picture the opening scenes, you can see the home in several shots, including behind the family as they picnic in the park across the street (via Dirt).


This home is iconic for its role in "Full House," but its star power goes beyond the popular sitcom. According to NPR, the Painted Ladies are considered a popular tourist spot for those visiting San Francisco. The house featured in the opening credits is the largest and oldest home on the block and was bought in 1975 for $65,000. After popularity in the home spiked, the owners got tired of tourists taking photos and put the house up for sale. They originally listed the 5-bedroom house for about $4 million, but it ended up selling in 2014 for $3.1 million.

The home the Tanners lived in sold in 2020

About a mile away from the iconic Painted Ladies sits the home the Tanners actually lived in on the show. The residential space is located in the Lower Pacific Heights area at 1709 Broderick Street, per Dirt. The home last sold in 2016 for $4.15 million, and the owner also has a special connection to it: he is Jeff Franklin, the show's creator (via The Hollywood Reporter). It makes sense that Franklin would have an interest in this home — not only did he create "Full House," he also handpicked the Broderick Street home for the show after viewing many properties. At the time of the purchase, Franklin told The Hollywood Reporter that he hoped to use it to film and as a place of nostalgia for "Full House" fans.


Unfortunately, that hope was quickly erased as neighbors learned of his ideas and complained, per Curbed. That, along with "Fuller House" being canceled, prompted Franklin to instead prepare the house for market. According to Mansion Global, he gutted the entire home top to bottom, turning the Victorian home into a modern mecca that appealed to current buyers. In the end, the home was listed for $5.5 million and according to Realtor, sold a few months later for $5.35 million.
