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
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 hits the market at $4,450,000.
