The beloved San Francisco home from the movie “Mrs. Doubtfire” has sold for $4.15 million, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The turreted Victorian-style home at 2640 Steiner Street was the central location for the film, which saw the late actor Robin Williams starring as a man who dresses up as a British nanny in order to be near his children during his divorce. The home became a shrine of sorts to Williams after his 2014 death, with fans leaving flowers and cards on the sidewalk outside.

The most recent owner, Dr. Douglas Ousterhout, a specialist in facial surgery for transgender patients, bought the home for $1.4 million in 1997. The identity of the new owner was not clear.

The four-bedroom Pacific Heights property hit the market for $4.45 million in September. It was built in 1983 and features original woodwork from the period.

“Because it’s built on a wide corner lot, the public rooms are large scale and the home has an open feel,”  listing agent Steven Gothelf of Pacific Union Christie’s International told the Chronicle. [San Francisco Chronicle]Katherine Clarke
