Revisiting the Real ‘Full House’ in Honor of Bob Saget’s Most Memorable Role
Bob Saget’s untimely passing has left fans around the world in shock, with their sadness echoed by the comedian's co-stars, from John Stamos to Brie Larson, the Olsen twins, and whole cast of How I Met Your Mother.
In an attempt to keep Bob Saget with us just a little longer, we thought we’d turn for comfort to the house that will forever be associated with his Danny Tanner persona
— the lovely San Francisco townhouse from Full House.
In real life, you’ll find the Full House house — which also featured in the Netflix revival, Fuller House — at 1709 Broderick Street in San Francisco.
Originally built in 1883, the house used on the show is a perfect example of a San Francisco family home,
though it’s admittedly on the pricier side. The house was last sold in 2020 for $5.35 million.
The Broderick St. house was used to film the opening credits and establishing shots for both Full House and its Netflix sequel Fuller House, but no interior scenes were filmed here.
In fact, the entire original series was filmed live before a studio audience at the Lorimar Studios in Los Angeles, with no actual footage being taken inside the house.
For a few years, the property was owned by none other than Jeff Franklin, the producer of Full House.
Franklin bought the home in 2016 and has been talking it up in interviews promoting his new Netflix show, Fuller House, which debuted the same year.
Originally built in 1883, the Charles Lewis Hinkel-designed house is a fine example of exquisite Italianate, Victorian architecture.
The now-iconic house has close to 4,000 square feet of space and will indeed pack a full family in its 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.
While the interiors look nothing like the ones we see on the show, the design is a perfect mix of modern and vintage that pays tribute to the home’s star-studded past.
The home shot to stardom along with the release of the original series featuring the fictional Tanner family, which ran on ABC from 1987 to 1995.
For the sake of consistency and to add authenticity to the new show, the same Full House home was also used in the Netflix sequel, which also includes most of the original cast.
The Olsen twins were the only ones not to return for the sequel.
But we did get a chance to see Bob Saget reprise the role of Danny Tanner before he was taken from us far too soon and, for that, we are grateful.
Rest in peace, Bob Saget. Thank you for all of the joyful and wholesome moments you’ve given us!
