'Full House' creator buys the real Tanner home
Remember that amazing San Francisco dream house that was home to Jesse, Danny and Joey in TV’s Full House? It was just bought for $4 million to a guy who really couldn’t live without it - Full House creator Jeff Franklin.
The Hollywood Reporter says Franklin bought the property at 1709 Broderick St. some 30 years after he handpicked it to be the Tanner home in the TV series. Built in 1883, the house has 2,500 square feet, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. And get this: Franklin is planning on redesigning the interior to match that of the actual Tanner family back in the ‘80s.
"There are probably 250 fans per day that show up and take a picture in front of it," Franklin told THR. "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."
John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier starred in the original Full House, which lasted from 1987 to 1995. A spin-off series called Fuller House launched on Netflix earlier this year. And good news: The original house could be making an appearance on the new show, if the new owner gets his way.
"We would take advantage of the fact that I now own the house, and we could go up there and shoot some new footage and maybe bring the cast up and shoot with them up there," Franklin said.
