The Pacific Heights mansion in San Francisco made famous as Mrs Doubtfire home has been put on the market. This iconic house which has become a memorial to Robin Williams who committed suicide in 2014, can now be yours for $4,45 million.
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.
The home last sold in April of 2000 for $1,395 million, but 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.
25 years ago, in the film, Williams played a soon-to-be divorced father and voice-over actor, who disguises himself as Euphegenia Doubtfire, an English nanny, in order to spend time with his three children without the knowledge of his wife (Sally Field).
