In the second bit of special house news to hit this week, we learn that the home made famous by the 1993 film Mrs. Doubtfire will soon be on the market. SocketSite reports that the Pacific Heights house has yet to be officially listed, but says that it will soon be for sale.
The home, seated on the corner of Steiner and Broadway, was where the family of the late Robin Williams's character lived in the movie — and where his character longed to be after his wife filed for divorce.
The house took on added significance after the actor committed suicide — becoming a makeshift memorial for those grieving his loss. It also was the site of an alleged arson attempt, after a woman was accused of trying to set the house on fire. The woman's surgeon, Dr. Douglas Ousterhout, lived in the home.
As the home hasn't been listed, we do not know what the current owner's asking price is. It was last sold in 1997 for $1.395 million. Whatever the price, we know one of the amenities it will provide any new tenant: Living somewhere that has become part of San Francisco history.
If someone you know exhibits warning signs of suicide: do not leave the person alone; remove any firearms, alcohol, drugs or sharp objects that could be used in a suicide attempt; and call the U.S. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255) or take the person to an emergency room or seek help from a medical or mental health professional.
