The home was purchased in August, but at the time, the realtor declined to say who bought it. Well, surprise!
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jeff Franklin, who created the famed 90s sitcom that starred John Stamos and Bob Saget, said he purchased the home in San Francisco to use in filming on the reboot Fuller House. He plans on renting the home at a later date.
It was on the market for more than $4 million.
“The house came on the market and really, I just thought, I have to buy this house,” he told the magazine about the home used in filming three decades ago. “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.”
Franklin said hundreds of fans come each day to take photos outside the home. Over the next few months, the home will be updated and brought to code, and the front door will be red once again, like on the show. Previous owners had changed it.
Full House aired from 1987 to 1995. Fuller House debuted on Netflix earlier this year.
