Full House, the crowd-pleasing ’80s and ’90s sitcom, and its recent reboot, Fuller House, have helped keep this simple San Francisco Victorian a tourist magnet for nearly three decades. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the house, which was used in the show’s opening credits, will soon go back on the market.

The Lower Pacific Heights house at 1709 Broderick sold for $4 million in 2016, which was a slightly under its asking price. Most notably, the show’s creator, producer Jeff Franklin, purchased the three-bed, three-and-a-half-bath, approximately 3,000-square-foot Victorian.

“I’m sentimental about the house,” Franklin told Hollywood Reporter in 2016.

He also said at the time that he planned to redecorate the abode’s interiors to match Full House’s sets, but that plan was quashed by neighbors who raised a fuss because, according to the Chronicle, “the Planning Department hadn’t notified them in advance as required.”

But now that Fuller House is canceled, Franklin plans on putting the house back on the market.

“I hope to find a buyer who wants to make it a full house once again,” said Franklin.

According to Mansion Global, the entire home underwent a ground-up renovation during Franklin’s ownership, “gutting the home and adding a lower-level living space with a bedroom, bathroom, den, and wet bar.”

No word yet how much the famed house will ask for when it arrives on the market at the end of April.

In the meantime, the home’s neighbors could breath a sigh of relief if the new owner chooses to veer from the family-sitcom narrative. Lower Pac Heights neighbors have bristled for years over the barrage of fans stopping by to snap shots of the famous exterior. So much so that the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency voted in 2018 to ban commercial vehicles (e.g., tourists buses) from using Broderick Street.
