Jeff Franklin and his Hollywood Hills property

Television producer Jeff Franklin, who created and produced the hit “Full House,” sold his contemporary Hollywood Hills estate for $20.2 million to a Nevada-based LLC. It went for nearly $3.8 million below the asking price.

The 2014 Collingwood Place spec-home, perched above the Sunset Strip, was designed by Richard Landry. It has five bedrooms and a curved floating glass staircase, Variety reported. It originally came to market at $38 million, according to the Los Angeles Times, and included an additional contiguous parcel of approximately 10,000 square feet.

Franklin first acquired the property in 1988 for $1.9 million, records show. He lived there for over 20 years in a smaller house before building the current one.

Franklin was so enamored with the new digs, he told the Hollywood Reporter in 2014, “If you can’t get laid in that bedroom, there’s something wrong with you.”

In August, Franklin paid $4 million for a house that quite literally had his name on it for decades.

It’s the same 1883 Italianate Victorian in the Pacific Heights area of San Francisco that appears in the opening credits of “Full House.” The establishing stock shots accompany Franklin’s producing credit, splashing his name across the exterior of the building.  [Los Angeles Times] + [Variety] — Gabrielle Paluch
