Jeff Franklin, creator of "Full House," buys iconic home used in sitcom

The famous Tanner family home featured in the sitcom “Full House” has officially been sold, and the new homeowner couldn’t be more fitting.

Jeff Franklin, the creator of the hit 1990s TV show, just revealed that he bought the Victorian home on 1709 Broderick Street in Lower Pacific Heights in California for roughly $4 million.

“My new house in San Francisco. Look familiar?!” Franklin tweeted Thursday afternoon.

Hundreds of fans liked Franklin’s photo, calling it a “dream come true.” He agreed, it truly is.

“The house came on the market and really, I just thought, I have to buy this house,” Franklin told The Hollywood Reporter.

“I’m so sentimental about the house. It’s great to have the house in our ‘Full House’ family and be able to preserve it for the fans.”

Speaking of preserving the house, fans of “Full House” and the Netflix revival “Fuller House” were quick to point out one of the first changes Franklin made as a new homeowner — bringing back the Tanner home’s iconic red doors. The door was previously painted a light green, confusing fans as they passed by the address in search of a photo-op.

As the house continues to transform back into the Tanner-style home that it once was, Franklin is already preparing for the selfies.

“There are probably 250 fans per day that show up and take a picture in front of it,” said Franklin to The Hollywood Reporter. “It will be a lot more fun for the fans because now the house will look like the Tanners really live there. It’s a gift to the fans, but it’s also fun for me to own it.”

The home was listed for sale in May for $4.15 million by Vanguard Properties. Franklin reportedly bought the home in August.

And the good news doesn’t stop there.

The TV producer also said he would eventually rent out the property, CBS San Francisco reports.

There’s still hope for loyal fans yet!
