The Shannon-Kavanaugh House, built in 1892 by carpenter-builder Matthew Kavanaugh for his own family, has become one of the most famous buildings in America. The house contains 4500 square feet on four floors, set against the magnificent backdrop of the San Francisco city skyline.
The interior features such as the gilded mirror in the main parlor and the working gaslights on the main floor that were salvaged from other prominent San Francisco homes.
The elegant Queen Anne-style structure has become familiar through its role in over 40 films, television series and commercials. The Shannon-Kavanaugh home is mostly remembered for the TV Show, "Full House".
In most cases, this 25-minute house tour will be guided by the current owner of the home, Michael Shannon, who regales visitors with stories about the house's various owners and its place in San Francisco history.
