Full House creator Jeff Franklin is having mercy on fans. The producer can call the iconic Tanners family home his own after a recent purchase of the San Francisco property.

The Full House Victorian sits on SF's beautiful Broderick Street in the affluent Pacific Heights neighborhood, where average home prices are far above $3 million. Franklin, 61, bought the house for $4 million. It was originally listed in May for $4.15 million.

"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. Seriously, I love owning this house."

The home is about 2,500 square feet, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. While the inside has been redesigned since it was featured in Full House, Franklin intends to return it to its former layout, a sort of resting tribute to his own mega successful series.

"There are probably 250 fans per day that show up and take a picture in front of it," Franklin told site. "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."
