"Mrs. Doubtfire's" House
My tours of San Francisco usually include a drive through Pacific Heights, I usually start at Broadway and Steiner and finish where Broadway ends at Lyon Street. On the SE corner of Broadway and Steiner, you can see "Mrs. Doubtfire's" house, the home where Robin Williams and Sally Field lived in the 1993 film, "Mrs. Doubtfire." An unusual aspect of the film is that the actual address of the house, 2640 Steiner Street, is mentioned. My understanding is that this home was selected because Robin Williams lived a couple of houses away on Broadway and didn't want a long commute to work. He knew the owners, who agreed to move out during filming. Of course, they were financially rewarded for their inconvenience.
Further west on Broadway, you can see some of the largest homes in San Francisco, including a 7 bedroom home with a private tennis court that is currently being offered for $45,000,000.
