Just because a San Francisco house is famous, doesn’t mean the folks who live in it are. The city is known for some eye-catching homes, all with a steep asking price. For those of us struggling to find one bedroom deals, there are others who worry their residence is a popular tourist stop. Here are three places with some history under their rooftops.
The Alamo Square mansion on the market recently dropped down in price—it’s now $1.4 million cheaper. For $3,500,000 you get a nice 16-room home. It comes complete with seven bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, a library, sauna, gaming room and ballroom. There’s only enough parking for your first eight cars, but you don’t have to drive that much since you’re close to Alamo Square Park and hundreds of restaurants, bars and clubs. It represents true Queen Anne Victorian architecture, made of stone, glass and wood.
The next house is especially fitting for a single dad, his best friend, his brother-in-law, and the Olsen twins. The Tanner family home featured in the sitcom Full House rests at 1709 Broderick Street in lower Pacific Heights. Although the show was filmed at Warner Brothers Studio in LA, the opening credits featured a row of classic Victorian-style homes at this location. The three bedroom, three bathroom house goes for $1,850,580. This one isn’t for sale, it sold in April 2006, but you can walk by and hum “Everywhere you Look.”
Also found in Pacific Heights is the house featured in Mrs. Doubtfire. Sally Field’s character, Miranda Hillard and her kids lived in the home on 2640 Steiner Street. The single-family home is on the corner of Broadway and Steiner. It’s not for sale, it sold for $1,394,698 in 1997.
Start saving those pennies and maybe you might have a famous San Francisco address some day. Dream big.
