‘Full House’ creator sells spec house above Sunset Strip for $20.2 million

Television producer Jeff Franklin, who created the sitcom “Full House,” has sold his modern estate in Hollywood Hills West for $20.2 million.

Built on speculation two years ago, the property originally came to market two years ago for $38 million, records show. It was listed at $23.995 million prior to the sale.

Designed by Richard Landry and completed in 2014, the five-bedroom home sits on nearly half an acre and is fronted by a circular motor court. An infinity-edge swimming pool with a spa also lies within the grounds.


Inside, the house is visually dramatic with textured and paneled walls, modern fixtures and vaulted ceilings. A sweeping circular staircase connects each of the home’s three levels, including a subterranean garage that was designed to double as a nightclub.

A great room, formal living and dining rooms, an office, a sauna and a wine cellar are among the living spaces. The master suite features a retractable skylight with a blackout shade and an indoor-outdoor shower.

Numerous balconies and patio space extend the living space outdoors.

Brendan Fitzpatrick and H. Blair Chang of the Agency had the listing. Rick Beck of Keller Williams Realty repped the buyer.

Franklin, 61, bought the property in 1988 for $1.9 million. In addition to “Full House,” he also created the sitcoms “Family Matters” and “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper.”
