Iconic ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ c.1893 Victorian Home Sells For $4.15-Million
2640 Steiner Street, San Francisco, California, United States
Update: The home was listed at $4.45-million and sold for $4.15-million. The iconic Victorian home from the 1993 Robin Williams’ film ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ has hit the market for $4,450,000 USD in San Francisco’s posh Pacific Heights neighbourhood. The home last sold in April of 2000 for $1,395,000 according to Zillow. This isn’t the first time it’s made headlines, in early 2015 an arsonist attempted to burn down the stately home, fortunately only minor charring occurred at the base of the garage and front door. Today, the 3,300 square foot c.1893 Victorian offers a blend of refined grace with modern luxury with a multitude of formal entertaining rooms, a gourmet kitchen, and four bedrooms & four bathrooms. The light-filled 3-level residence offers an elevated entrance from the street and features many fine original details such as hardwood floors, classic millwork and mouldings and leaded glass windows. The formal rooms are stately in character, complemented by the home’s signature window lined turrets at each side. A lot has changed to the interiors of the home, and one may question if some of the filming took place on a soundstage rather than in the actual structure. If you compare some of the stills to the listing photos you’ll notice that many details are quite a bit different, one being the entire staircase & windows behind it. One of the interesting things is that the film used the actual address “2640 Steiner Street” in the film, something you don’t typically see due to privacy concerns. Since the release of the movie it’s become a landmark for fans and following Williams death in 2014 a sizeable shrine was assembled on the front steps. Whether you’re a fan of Mrs. Doubtfire or an architectural buff, it won’t take much to make you want to live in this stately residence.
