The San Francisco home featured in "Mrs. Doubtfire" hit the market with a multi-million dollar price tag this week.

The home, featured in the 1993 film starring Robin Williams, is located at 2640 Steiner Street. It was the site of a memorial for the Bay Area-based actor after he committed suicide in Aug. 2014, and it remains an "unofficial memorial," according to KGO-TV.

The three-story Victorian house has four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and sits overlooking the San Francisco Bay. It also features a marble bath tub and two-person shower, "garden/patio for al fresco enjoyment," an office/family room, foyer, a remodeled kitchen, space for a personal gym and a multi-car garage. According to E! News, "a piece of the garage actually lifts your car up into the air so you can park a second one under it."

"Because it's built on a wide corner lot, the public rooms are large-scale and the home has an open feel," said listing agent Steven Gothelf of Pacific Union Christie's International. 

The home, built in 1893, is approximately 3,300 square feet.

The current owner, Douglas Ousterhout, is a surgeon who has specialized in facial feminization surgery for transgender patients. He purchased the home in 1997 for $1.395 million, according to the San Francisco Gate. The Gate reported that Ousterhout is selling the home to retire in the wine country.

HGTV 'Fixer Upper' homes have become vacation rentals

Many fans of HGTV's "Fixer Upper" are thrilled with the idea of traveling to Waco, Texas, after finding out that they can stay in homes that have appeared on the show.

Some of the homes redesigned by designer couple Chip and Joanna Gains have been listed on online property rental services Airbnb and Vacation Rental By Owner.

According to the Waco Tribune, some homeowners who benefited the remodels said they didn't initially pursue the renovations with intentions to rent out their spaces. Instead, they said they felt pressured to rent out the spaces by "Fixer Upper" fans.

Some homeowners said that while they never felt threatened by the fans, people were intrusive when they visited the locations. Many fans would stop in front of the homes to take photos, and others walked up to the houses and asked to go inside.

"They're mostly women in their 50s and tend to be big 'Fixer Upper' fans or Baylor-oriented," Dave Morrow said of visitors to his "Fixer Upper" home, the Mailander House. "(The home’s interior) is very Zen. We keep it like Joanna does -- no clutter."

One woman, Charmaine Hooper, said she and her husband listed their "Fixer Upper" home on VRBO after a friend suggested the idea. 

Upon hearing the news, the couple released a statement through Magnolia House spokesman Brock Murphy:

"We have no problems with our clients' interest in using sites like VRBO and Airbnb to rent out their homes. In fact, we get it. But we are going to be more strict with our contracts involving 'Fixer Upper' clients moving forward. We want to honor our national viewing audience. We want to do remodels for clients' homes. That's the true intent of our show, and we want to ensure that does not get lost in this new vacation rental trend. What started off with perfectly understandable intentions could cast a shadow of a doubt on the much bigger picture, and we are going to do our best to protect that moving forward."

There are 12 former "Fixer Upper" homes available for rental, including the Mailander House, the Gorman House, the Barndominium, the Midcentury Modern House and the Shotgun House.

In a follow-up story, the Waco Tribune pointed out that the house-flipping has the potential to tarnish the "Fixer Upper" brand.

'Brady Bunch' actress sells California home for 10 times original price

Eve Plumb didn't raise three girls in the home she just sold, but she did star as one.

Plumb, best known for her role as Jan Brady in "The Brady Bunch," was just 11 when she purchased the Malibu, California, property in 1969, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The listing on Realtor.com says the house is relatively small -- just 600 square feet.

It sold for $3.9 million, which, as New York Daily News points out, means Plumb made "a ten-fold return on her investment" since she paid just over $55,000 for the property 47 years ago.

The new owners, who are unknown, have spent millions of dollars on a new house design that's in the works, according to Newsy.

Renderings from the design firm Meis show the new 3,300-square-foot home will have glass walls, a wraparound deck and a retractable moon roof.

The lakefront, four-bedroom home comes with 500 feet spanning Vermont's Lake Champlain.

His other homes are in Burlington, Vermont, and Washington, D.C.

Some Twitter users said that based on his campaign platform and political values of democratic socialism, it was a hypocritical move.

Among the headlines:"Bernie Sanders' third home puts a new spin on 'socialism' in America."

Combating rumors that Sanders used campaign donations to fund his purchase, his wife told a local news outlet that they sold another property to get the money for the new house.

"My family had a lake home in Maine since 1900, but we hadn’t had the time to go there in recent years, especially since my parents passed away," Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, said a written statement. "We finally let go of it, and that enabled us to buy a place in the islands -- something I've always hoped for."
