‘Full House” home in SF now available for rent


The San Francisco home featured in “Full House” is now available to rent. But the $13,950 monthly rental price might deter even the biggest Tanner fans.

The 1883 Italianate villa at 1709 Broderick St., near Pine St., was put on the market in May with a $4.15 million sale price. But now it’s available for rent with an equally eye-popping rate.

The home’s exterior, then painted white, was used as the Tanner family’s residence in the original show, though the interior was a Burbank set. The shots were used again in the recent “Fuller House” reboot on Netflix.

The home itself is an elegant gem, according to Vanguard Properties’ Ed Deleski, who told SFGATE in May, “I think part of the specialness is a lot of the Italianate architectural detailing that the owner has gone above and beyond to preserve and make it spectacular. The house has an amazing feel that you cannot re-create today.”

The home is listed at 2,985 square feet, and has three bedrooms and 3.5

Full House Home goes on the market

full house

A splendid 1883 Italianate San Francisco Victorian with an exterior many know because it appeared for a brief moment in the 80s sitcom “Full House” and Netflix’s newer “Fuller House” sequel has gone on the market for $4.15 million.

But the interior of 1709 Broderick looks nothing like the home inhabited by widowed father (Bob Saget), his three adorable daughters, best friend (Dave Coulier) and brother-in-law (John Stamos).

 That’s because “Full House” was shot in a Burbank studio while this three-bedroom home designed by Charles Lewis Hinkel has been lived in by owners who’ve taken extra care to maintain its original details and pristine architecture.

The interior is sophisticated and its 11-foot-ceilings, beautiful doors and original molding give it timeless elegance.

Green & Gorgeous Homes: Can they Command a Premium?


It’s not easy being green — if you’re a house for sale.

Sure, everyone loves energy efficient upgrades — in theory.

But when it comes time to fork over green paper with pictures of dead presidents, many buyers won’t pay a premium for eco features, no matter how sexy and how beneficial for the planet. That could soon start to change as some new national programs create incentives and infrastructure for energy upgrades in for-sale homes.

One problem the green industry faces is not enough appraisers are qualified to appraise green, LEED or energy-efficiency properties.  Contact the appraisers at www.scappraisals.com, they are the forerunners in green property appraisals.

Some forward-thinking developers have taken green to the max in rehabbing high-end SF houses. Here are two luxury renovations that received LEED Platinum certification — among only a handful of SF houses to snare the coveted designation.

First up, a six-bedroom Queen Anne at 235 Broderick on the border of Haight Ashbury and the Panhandle. Its owners* spent $2 million and a lot of time and energy redoing it to be ultra-environmental.

“Every single thing in that house is salvaged locally, sustainably forested or a combination,” said listing agent Amanda Jones of Sotheby’s International Realty. “Getting LEED certified requires a lot of attention to water consumption, energy use and air circulation.”

The three-story house was gutted, given a new steel frame, new foundation and lots of extras. In addition, the house is “wired to the hilt,” Jones said, with an impressive media room.

It looks spectacular in the photos — but hasn’t found someone willing to pony up extra to be that green, although lots of successful tech execs and even some Hollywood types have toured it.

The house hit the market almost five months ago at just over $4 million and this month dropped the price by $600,000 to $3.495 million.

Now, the owners, who are moving back to Australia, are contemplating renting it, at a cool $17,000 a month.
