After purchasing the iconic Victorian home used for exterior shots on “Full House,” show creator and executive producer Jeff Franklin wanted to restore the interiors to match the show’s sets.

 

Now, a couple of years later, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom, 3,728-square-foot home in San Francisco is back on the market for $5,999,999—sans the “Full House” interiors.

But first, let’s look back at scenes from previous episodes.

Franklin purchased the home for $4 million in April 2016. He had grand plans to renovate the interior so it matched what viewers grew up seeing on their screens every Friday night.

Speculation on why he took on the project was rampant. Perhaps it was to film some new footage for the Netflix reboot “Fuller House”? Or stage a sleepover for the cast and crew? Rent it out to fans by the night? The options were endless.

Franklin’s idea germinated well before the “Brady Bunch” home even went on the market—much less before it became the subject of a similar renovation plan after being bought by HGTV.

 

He acquired all the necessary building permits, and that’s when neighbors in Pacific Heights raised a ruckus. They feared the house would become even more of a tourist destination. Devoted fans of the show already flock to the site on a daily basis and cause commotion in the neighborhood.

Franklin’s permits were eventually revoked, and he left the show in 2018. Soon after, Netflix announced that, after five seasons, the “Fuller House” franchise had run its course. The final episode will air later this year.
Since he lives in Los Angeles, Franklin decided to sell the home, but he would first fix it up even if it wasn’t in the “Full House” style.

The Agency’s Rachel Swann, who is co-listing the property with Compass’ Cindy Ambuehl, says she reached out to HGTV about six months ago to see if it’d like to purchase the place. She wanted to gauge the network’s interest in working on a project much like the “Brady Bunch” house, but she heard nothing back for months. Recently, she did get a call from network officials expressing interest.

Alas, the call came too late. A stylish renovation, led by architect Richard Landry and designer Rhona McShane, was already done.

Main floor

“It was a great house when Franklin bought it,” says Swann. “But they’ve done a stunning remodel. They’ve opened up the living spaces to give it more flow and movement.” The renovation added skylights, high-end finishes, and an extra bedroom.
Originally built in 1883 by Charles Lewis Hinkel, the home now shines in a way it likely hasn’t for over a century.

“Working together with Green Couch staging, the design team came up with a home that shows sophisticated, sexy, and bold,” says Swann. “People want to buy it as is, with all the furniture in place.”

Great room

She notes that the new kitchen is especially bold, with its custom cabinetry, Calacatta Oro marble, designer lighting, and Viking appliances. It opens up to an elegant main living room with a fireplace.

Kitchen

It’s a three-story home, with the top floor featuring a stylish master suite with a front-facing bay window, a fireplace, a walk-in closet, and a luxurious bath. There are two more bedrooms and another bath with dual sinks on the top level.

The lower level contains a flexible space with a large bedroom with custom built-ins, a full bath, walk-in closet, laundry, and a den area with a wet bar.

Out back is an extensive patio and well-manicured English garden, with a discreet Easter egg for “Full House” fans.

 

There’s a small, secret garden with cement tiles with the handprints and signatures of the “Full House” cast.

“A little splash of the iconic,” Swann says with a laugh.

According to Swann, Franklin has the original front doors of the house when it was used for exterior “Full House” shots. He says he’d be happy to make them available to the new owners, should they be interested.


With or without them, the home will always be iconic. Just don’t tell the neighbors.
