The Painted Ladies house in San Francisco made famous by the ’90s classic TV series Full House recently went up for sale — news that presents the opportunity for current young professionals’ fond childhood memories to come full circle with their dreams for the picturesque all-American family home in the city.
Which is certainly possible you’re willing to fork over more than $4 million for only three bedrooms and ancient architecture.
According to the official Realtor.com listing, the abode housed by the Tanner clan for many of our childhoods currently has an asking price of $4,150,000. While the biggest awe and attraction to the house itself is its famous Painted Ladies neighborhood and convenient San Francisco location, the listing doesn’t shy away from its swanky appeal, writing, “The interior of this magnificent property is sophisticated, comfortable, and timeless with a spacious floor plan, soaring ceilings, 3 bedrooms, office and 3 1/2 baths.” In other words, it has just as many beds and baths as any other house made for a small family.
If you’re reading this, there’s about as high a chance of you being able to afford this pricey piece of housing nostalgia as there is of me someday being as good-lookin’ as John Stamos.
Perhaps we should blame the Full House producers for lying to us as children by telling us that a single-income household of a local TV reporter could provide for a family of three daughters and two other adults in a great neighborhood in the middle of one of the most expensive cities in the world. We all know that in reality, someone with such an income in the Bay Area probably struggles to pay rent for a studio apartment in Oakland.
But hey, a life without dreams is a life without meaning..
