Have mercy! Jeff Franklin, famed creator of Full House, has got it, dude.
When loyal fans hear the words Full House, only one thing comes to mind: The beautiful San Francisco row house that sat at 1882 Girard Street. Okay, so maybe a few things come to mind, like Danny's cleanliness or Uncle Jesse's hair or how cute Michelle was. But truly, that home was one for the ages and a source of pure envy for those who watched (or still watch) the sitcom.
Which is precisely why its recent sale made such a big splash. Back in May, the owners of the iconic Victorian (which is actually located on Broderick Street in the Pacific Heights neighborhood) decided to put the place on the market, and Franklin himself just snatched it up.
The showrunner dished all to The Hollywood Reporter, saying that he felt it was a shame to let it just sit empty for so long. (That could have been due to the home's $4-plus million price tag, but we're not realtors). "The house came on the market and really, I just thought, I have to buy this house," he told THR. ""I'm so sentimental about the house. It's great to have the house in our Full Housefamily and be able to preserve it for the fans. … Seriously, I love owning this house."
He shelled out close to $4 million himself for the property, and he said that he plans to use it as a filming location and possibly even rent it out to the public in the future. We smell a super-popular Airbnb!
First on the list of his new-homeowner to-do's was to replace the front door. The previous owners had kept it a shade of green, but Franklin decided to go back to its roots with the iconic red door we all know and love. He cited a great many other projects that he'll have to check off before any filming or tours can start (California is earthquake central, after all—don't you all remember the time that Danny went momentarily missing during a quake and scared little Stephanie half to death?).
But for now, fans embarking on the age-old pilgrimage to the home front for Instagram photos can do so knowing that it's back in the (kind of) Tanner family again.
