PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The San Francisco house the Tanners called home on the popular 1987 sitcom “Full House” has a buyer, and that buyer is reportedly none other than show’s creator himself, Jeff Franklin.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Franklin bought the 19th century home for a cool $4 million and has high hopes of restoring it back to its former “Full House” glory.
“I’m so sentimental about the house,” Franklin told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s great to have the house in our “Full House” family and be able to preserve it for the fans. … Seriously, I love owning this house.”
If you remember the house from the show, you probably wouldn’t recognize it if you saw it today. The previous owners painted that eye-catching red door a light green color, and the window treatments and landscaping had been changed.
Franklin says all that will be recreated – starting with restoring that red door. The producer hopes that should “Full House’s” recent revival “Fuller House” be renewed for a third season on Netflix, they can actually shoot some scenes at the home.
Eventually, Franklin plans to rent the property out when it is not in use.
It is important to note that in the original “Full House” series, the Tanners never actually lived in that house, and filming of the actual show was never done at that location.
The property, however, was used for exterior shots, making it just as iconic as the show.
