Full House Home
Maybe the most famous home in San Francisco, the house used for the show Full House and Fuller House is located at 1709 Broderick Street in Pacific Heights. While the actual home isn’t found on Alamo Square with the Painted Ladies shown on Full House, it’s still rather famous.
The exterior shots of this home on the show made it famous. Even today, it’s still easily recognizable by millions of fans. Jeff Franklin, the producer of Full House actually purchased the home with plans to rent it out.
Often seen on TV and in movies, the Painted Ladies are found near Alamo Square. These homes are some of the most famous in the entire city with Victorian and Edwardian architectural styles. Three or more colors are used on the exterior of each home to enhance the details.
The Painted Ladies are found from 710 to 720 Steiner Street. They are also referred to as Postcard Row and the homes were built between 1892 and 1896.
A 55-bedroom home with a grand ballroom, there isn’t much like it anywhere else in the world. The Spreckels Mansion (YouTube) is known for its famous owner, Danielle Steel.

An iconic home found at 2640 Steiner Street, the Mrs. Doubtfire House is very well-known in San Francisco. It’s another Pacific Heights choice and has become a bit of a shrine to the late Robin Williams with flowers left on the sidewalk in front of the home often.
