"That's So Raven's" House

My last post told where visitors can see houses depicted on the television show "Full House." Young visitors are frequently fans of the Disney Channel's "That's So Raven" show. Like "Full House," most of the scenes in the program were taped in a studio. (The series is no longer in production.) However, the opening scenes show that Raven's home is at the corner of Page and Ashbury. The house is on the northwest corner of the intersection. It's address is 461 Ashbury Street. The high school that is frequently shown is not in San Francisco.

Two more San Francisco landmarks are just down the street from Raven's home. The intersection of Haight and Ashbury Streets is one block away. This is the corner that gave the neighborhood its name. It became synonymous with the Hippies, when thousands of young people flocked to the neighborhood during the Summer of Love in 1967. Further south on Ashbury is the Victorian house, number 710, where the Grateful Dead lived during this time.

If you would like to take a private San Francisco tour that includes a visit to Haight Ashbury, or as it is known today -- the Upper Haight -- please call me at (866) 326-4237 (toll free) or e-mail me by clicking here.

Thank you very much for the info! When I told our daughter that we were going to SF this summer, she immediately was planning "to visit Raven at her house". I've explained numerous times the reality of the situation. I did promise her that I would find the address of the house and we would stop for a picture. Thanks for posting a very important bit of info! My wife, daughter and I are going in July for our 11th Wedding Anniversary. We fell in love with the city back in 1996 on our honeymoon.

Thanks Again!

Sorry, I don't have any photos of the house. You'll have to come with me on a tour next time you're in town so you can photograph the house.

The house is a private home and cannot be toured. I can drive by it on my San Francisco Highlights Tour. For more information on this tour, visit www.BlueHeronTours.com/ToursSanFrancisco.asp.
