How much do you know about the real-life Mrs. Doubtfire house?


Written by:


Helloooo, and welcome! Though I can hardly believe it, it’s been 30 years since Mrs. Doubtfire was released in theaters.

To this day it remains a firm favorite movie of mine and millions of others around the world.

Hardly surprising with a Golden Globe win, (Best Performance By An Actor In A Motion Picture), an Oscar win (Best Makeup), and unforgettable performances from screen legends Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, and of course, the late and forever great, Robin Williams.

That said, if you’ve not seen the film (go grab a copy immediately!) or need a little refresh, allow me to fill you in dears.

When Miranda (Field) tells Daniel (Williams) that she wants a divorce, the devoted father of three moves out and is left with little access to his children.

In a desperate bid to spend more time with them, the out-of-work actor and his crafty brother Frank (Harvey Fierstein) hatch a plan. They disguise Daniel as a female housekeeper and get him an interview to be the children’s after-school nanny.

All goes well at first, but when both Daniel and Mrs. Doubtfire are required to attend two different dinners at the same restaurant, hilarity ensues and the truth threatens to come out!

Where is Mrs. Doubtfire’s house in real life?

As I’ve already revealed, the house from Mrs. Doubtfire is absolutely real. So the next question is, where is it?

Well, you might be surprised but tracking down the exact location really didn’t take much digging.


The address Miranda gives to Daniel/Mrs. Doubtfire in the movie is actually correct!

In the 1993 hit family movie, Mrs Doubtfire, the Hillards live at 2640 Steiner Street in San Francisco, and that’s exactly where you’ll find this dream house in real life — if you’re ever lucky enough to find yourself in the area.

The beautiful single-family home featured in the classic family movie was built in 1893, and has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms spread across 3,300 square feet of living space.

The three-level Victorian house sits in a prime location on the corner of Broadway — an east-west street in San Francisco that runs from The Embarcadero to the sought-after Pacific Heights neighborhood.

Can you visit the Mrs. Doubtfire house?

Absolutely! Since the address is widely known and the house is located in a popular area of San Francisco (with a stunning view overlooking the bay I might add!) stopping by for a respectful look at the impressive exterior is highly recommended.

But please remember that this is a private residence, so always respect the owners’ right to privacy and make sure you admire it from a distance.

Fun fact: If you ever find yourself touring San Francisco’s most iconic movie/TV homes, make sure to add the equally memorable Full House house to your list. It’s less than a mile away from Mrs. Doubtfire’s house.

San Francisco’s infamous Painted Ladies are also within a short drive.

Were scenes for Mrs. Doubtfire filmed inside the house?

Like so many movies then and now, scenes for Mrs. Doubtfire weren’t actually shot inside the house.

According to, a warehouse in the San Francisco Bay Area was used to construct the sets and bring the Hillards’ cozy family home to life.

Can I buy it?!

Usually, when you’re daydreaming about whether you could actually move into one of the most iconic childhood homes of the ’90s, the answer is a resounding no.

However, when it comes to the Mrs. Doubtfire’s house, you might just be in luck! Although the house is currently occupied, it has been up for sale in recent years.

The property at 2640 Steiner Street was last sold in 2016 for $4,150,000.

According to Zillow, the light-filled three-level residence boasts 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a landscaped patio area, and a large chef’s kitchen. Perfect for when you wanna yo yo make a wicked cup of cocoa or whip up a hollandaise that smells like burnt rubber! But be warned, Zillow also estimates it’d set you back a few million dollars!

The house in Mrs Doubtfire is worth between $4 million and $5.5 million — Zillow estimates it to be worth over $5.5 million, whereas has a more conservative estimate for the property, valuing it at $4.3 million.

If all this reminiscing has put you in the mood to watch the movie again, you can! It’s currently streaming on Hulu and Disney+. Enjoy your trip down memory lane, all my love to you poppet.

Take a peek inside Sandra Bullock’s $6M San Diego spread


Almost 30 years after her breakthrough role as Keanu Reeves‘ co-star in the action thriller Speed, Sandra Bullock is one of the biggest names in Hollywood.


With her body of work spanning from cult classics like Demolition Man to raunchy comedies (The Heat), rom-coms (The Proposal, While You Were Sleeping), dramas (2019’s The Blind Side earned her an Academy Award for Best Actress), all the way to science fiction thrillers (Gravity) and horrors (Bird Box), it feels like there’s nothing she can’t do.


And that extends beyond her acting skills.


The actress, whose most recent hits include Netflix thriller-drama, The Unforgivable, the action-adventure comedy The Lost City, and the action film Bullet Train — now in cinemas — is also quite active on the real estate scene.


Bullock’s real estate portfolio is almost a match for her A-list resume (and has just as much range).


At one point, Architectural Digest reported that the actress owned “at least 17 properties scattered across the country.”


Among them: a 91-acre hilltop compound with an organic avocado farm in North San Diego which recently hit the market for $6,000,000 (Alan Long with Avenue8 holds the listing).

Located in the Palomar Mountain Range north of San Diego and just west of the Cleveland National Forest, the property is a private escape where natural beauty reigns supreme.


You’ll find everything from towering eucalyptus trees to groves of organic avocado trees, citrus, persimmon, olive and palm trees, colorful rose gardens, walking, and hiking trails, you name it.

While those alone wouldn’t warrant the $6 million asking price, the three separate land parcels that make up the property’s total of 91 acres sure do.


Especially since one of the parcels contains the main house — a beautiful one-story adobe-style ranch with all the bells and whistles.

Sandra Bullock’s house has 4 bedrooms and 6 baths, a large living room with high-pitched white wood ceilings, and a library with fireplace and illuminated shelving.

The large, bright eat-in kitchen comes with custom La Cornue ovens and range, and quite a few high-range appliances. It also has soapstone counters and Italian marble backsplash with an inlay mosaic mural.

The formal dining room doesn’t leave much to be desired either, boasting beamed white wood ceiling, a bay of French casement windows, a marbled wet bar/buffet and wine refrigerator.

Each of the four bedrooms come with their own en-suite bathroom, but the primary bedroom stands out with an adobe fireplace, spacious lounge area, and private access to the pool.


It also has a lavish bath with a jetted bathtub (that opens up to views of the property’s lush grounds), a large steam shower, and built-in antique vanities with dual sinks.

From the heated saltwater pool and spa (which has an automated pool cover) to the Bocce ball court and the plentiful outdoor entertainment areas, modern amenities compete with farm additions like a walk-in chicken coop and a 1,200 high-quality Dusa/Hass organic avocado tree orchard.

The compound consists of three separate legal parcels, one for the main house, another an undeveloped lot, and a third, 30-acre parcel that’s currently housing an additional 3-bedroom, 2-bath dwelling.


There’s also the option to buy the property without the 3rd parcel (the one with the extra 3-bed home).


The celebrity home also has the potential to generate revenue from the many fruit-producing trees on the property. Already certified for its organic Hass avocado grove and grapefruit, lemon, and persimmon, crops can be extended to include grapes — and even have a vineyard and winery on-site.


Horse enthusiasts can also turn it into an equestrian estate.

Avenue8’s Alan Long shares the listing with Kay O’Hara of HomeSmart Realty West and Melissa Russell of Willis Allen Real Estate.

From the looks of it, Sandra Bullock has had it with the West Coast for the time being.


The actress has already sold a West Hollywood condo in 2022, rented out her Malibu home, and is now parting ways with her San Diego compound.


According to the New York Post, Bullock is looking to relocate to the East Coast, to be closer to family.


Listing agent Alan Long, who’s also friends with the actress, told the publication that “She is looking for a farm closer to her sister on the East Coast.”


And while we’re wishing her the best of luck with that, it can’t be easy to find a property that matches her San Diego compound — both in terms of amenities and finishes.


But she has plenty of other properties to fall back on in the meantime.

Sandra Bullock owns homes throughout the country, including a Beverly Hills mid-century bungalow she bought last year for $2.7 million, a Victorian-era mansion in New Orleans purchased back in 2009 with her then-husband Jesse James, a spacious Soho townhouse in New York City, and a Malibu pad that she’s now renting out.
