“Whatever happened to predictability?” The opening line from the Full House theme song seems more relevant now than ever. The now-iconic San Francisco home that set the stage for the sitcom’s opening credits recently underwent a major modern makeover—and it’s not at all what you’d expect. Superfans might not even recognize the residence without its famous red door.
The refurbishment came courtesy of the home’s owner, Jeff Franklin—better known as the creator and former executive producer of Full House. When Franklin purchased the property in 2016, he intended to turn the home into an homage to the show by replicating the set’s floor plan. Instead, he decided to give the Victorian house a 21st-century face-lift and sell it for a cool $5.99 million.
Now we finally understand why Danny Tanner had so many roommates.
Like the Tanner family, the Full House home is all grown-up—herringbone tile, open-concept kitchen, and all. Peek inside below to see what the real-life residence looks like today.
The master bedroom is drenched in natural light…
While the home’s interior has never borne any resemblance to the original Full House set (or its Netflix spinoff, Fuller House), we’d like to think the Tanner family would feel right at home in 2019.
The kitchen puts storage first…
We can practically picture the whole gang gathering together around the eat-in kitchen island to talk about Stephanie’s science fair project or uncle Jesse’s haircare routine. Six is far from a crowd when your kitchen is the size of a one-bedroom apartment in NYC and has plenty of storage to spare.
The secret garden is an entertainer’s dream…
Other modern updates to the home include wide-plank hardwood floors, soaring skylights, and a gorgeous alfresco dining space fit for a true entertainer.
Despite the fact that the home has undergone a number of serious changes since it was listed three years ago, the home hasn’t lost its nostalgic appeal. Everywhere you look, everywhere you go, there’s something to feel good about.
