‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ home for sale, asks $4,450,000

The Pacific Heights Victorian used in one of Robin Williams’ most popular flicks was also the site of a makeshift memorial for the late actor

Robin Williams Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), wherein a divorced father dresses up as a female nanny in an effort to see his kids (while, unnervingly, presumably going against the express wishes of his ex-wife and a judge), all set in San Francisco, joins other such Baghdad by the Bay-tinged movies as Vertigo and Dirty Harry. The flick was a smash when it was released, Williams nabbed a well-deserved Golden Globe, and the film has been entered in the lexicon of San Francisco cinema

The Pacific Heights house used in the movie, an 1893 Victorian masterpiece at 2640 Steiner, lands on the market this week.

This three-story abode comes with four beds, three and a half baths, and approximately 3,300 square feet. It’s large for sure, but still maintains a certain intimacy, perhaps due in large part that it hasn’t been antiseptically renovated like most tony San Francisco homes.

Something to keep in mind, however, is that this is a tourist attraction. While not as well-known as the Full House home, it does get a decent amount of gawkers peering inside the windows.

This famous, stately house last sold in 1997 for $1,395,000, last owned by Dr. Douglas Ousterhout, of the country’s leading surgeons in facial feminization for transgender women.

The house made headlines in 2015 when an arsonist attempted to burn it down. Also in 2014, when Williams died, fans used the house’s exterior steps to build a memorial shrine to the late actor.

The house hits the market at $4,450,000.
