Want to buy a slice of irreverent San Francisco pop culture history? Now’s your chance — the Victorian home seen in the 1993 film “Mrs. Doubtfire” is for sale for $4.45 million, and if you buy it you’ll be able to reenact the memorable cake face scene and more. 

2640 Steiner Street in the city’s Pacific Heights neighborhood is a three-story single-family home with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. Built in 1893, it’s got hardwood floors, classic millwork and moldings and even comes with a landscaped patio. Aesthetically, its most interesting feature may its curved bedroom ceilings, which create a fishbowl effect.

But to be frank, the home’s biggest draw is its tie to a certain late actor. “Mrs. Doubtfire,” a comedy about a slacker husband trying to stay in his children’s lives after a custody battle gone wrong, features one of the Bay Area’s favorite comedians: Robin Williams.

Born in Chicago, the popular actor got his start doing standup shows in San Francisco and lived in the city later in his life. After he passed away in his home in Marin County in 2014, the city renamed the tunnel connecting the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin County, dubbing it the “Robin Williams Tunnel” — and yes, it is a rainbow archway.

For many comedy lovers Williams’ absence still stings. If you’re in the market (or even if you aren’t), you may want to schedule a tour to walk through the site of one of the funniest comedies of the 90s.
