‘Full House’ Creator Buys the Real Tanner Home For $4 Million (UPDATE)
UPDATE (12/1/2016 5:24 p.m. ET): The bad news? The real Full House home is no longer for sale, having been sold for $4 million this fall. The good news? Its new owner is Jeff Franklin, the ABC sitcom's creator!
"The house came on the market and really, I just thought, I have to buy this house," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. "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."
After some much-needed restoration, the 61-year-old will give the house its most famous feature: that red door.
"There are probably 250 fans per day that show up and take a picture in front of it," he says. "It will be a lot more fun for the fans because now the house will look like the Tanners really live there. It's a gift to the fans, but it's also fun for me to own it."
Jeff says his ownership of the house means the cast and crew can shoot scenes there if Fuller House is renewed for a third season. (Season 2 starts streaming on December 9.) And when the Netflix revival isn't filming there, he'll rent the residence out.
"It's a shame to let it sit empty," he concludes. "I will be renting it out, but I'm not sure yet what, where, when or how. At some point soon I will figure that out."
Original story (5/28/2016 3:42 p.m. ET): Die-hard Full House fans, boy do we have some good news for you: the Tanner family home is officially on the market!
All you have to do to make the property yours is shell out the small sum of $4,150,000.
Although, when you see the inside of the ‘90s dream house, you might not feel so hopeless about making it your own.
The San Francisco abode looks nothing like it did on TV for eight seasons, which makes sense since the sitcom was actually filmed on a lot in Los Angeles, not 1709 Broderick St., the residency’s real address.
Instead, the three-beds, four-baths townhouse is hiding quite the swanky interior.
At 3,125-square-feet, the home includes "a classically designed garden," a library that calls itself an office, and tons of ceiling space, according to Realtor.com.
The inside of Michelle Tanner’s childhood home isn’t the only thing that will make a fan's jaw drop now.
Homeowners also ditched the casa’s iconic white paint job and red door for what looks like a type of blue, although E! News dubbed the color “a jarring shade of eggplant.”
Either way, we think you should stick it out for your very own Barbie Dreamhouse at this point.
