Designed by Charles Lewis Hinkel and built in 1883, the façade of the Lower Pacific Heights Victorian at 1709 Broderick Street was cast as the Tanner’s home in Full House, for which it gained widespread notoriety, much to the chagrin of its current neighbors.

Purchased by the show’s creator, Jeff Franklin, for $4 million in 2016, to the pleasure of neighbors, the home’s interior was subsequently gutted, expanded and remodeled to yield 3,728 square feet of space, including “a bold kitchen that strikes a pose against a large backdrop of open living spaces with powder room, custom cabinetry, Calacatta Oro, Viking appliances and second living room with fireplace,” as we first reported at the time.

And having re-sold for $5.35 million in October of 2020, 1709 Broderick Street, “a historic Charles Lewis Hinkel residence built in 1883 [and] impeccably renovated in 2019 by world-renowned architect Richard Landry,” which “caters to the most discerning taste” (and throngs of fans), has just returned to the market with a $6.5 million price tag.

    1. Notcom, try doing a web search using the phrase “architect known as the King of the Megamansions” and see what name comes up on top.
      Alternatively, you do a cursory web search using your favorite search engine and just his name; here’s a snippet from one of the first three hits, In-Depth Architect Profile: Richard Landry, from 2017:

      Architect Richard Landry moved to Los Angeles in the mid-1980s to be where the action is. The Montreal native drove down from recession-plagued Alberta without a green card or visa. He promptly landed four job offers within a week, so he got his visa and stuck around

      He did his homework, too, rigorously researching European scale and proportions and tracking down the most authentic materials. Soon he was designing houses for Hollywood’s super rich and super stars alike. At last count, the 60 year old had designed 400 homes in 12 states and 17 countries, and he’s just beginning to hit his stride.

      I think the fact that he has multiple commissions from outside the U.S. and Canada warrants the “world-renowned” qualifier, even if he isn’t in the same league as the others on your list.
