Stand-up comedian and actor Dave Coulier, best known for his role as Joey Gladstone on the 1980s and ’90s sitcom “Full House” and its reprise, “Fuller House,” has listed his modern-minded two-story traditional in the hills above Encino, Calif., with an asking price of not quite $1.96 million. Once the host of “America’s Funniest People,” the busy voiceover actor purchased the property in late 2001 for a smidgen less than $1 million, and this is not, by far, the first time he’s tried to sell the property; it was on and off the market at least half a dozen times between mid-2010 and early 2013 at prices between $1.4 million and $1.75 million.
Built in the 1940s and discreetly positioned behind a clipped hedge and electronic driveway gates on a tree-shaded lot of more than one-third of an acre, the nearly 4,100-square-foot, extensively upgraded residence has six bedrooms and three bathrooms. With wood floors, a vaulted ceiling, a massive white-brick fireplace and a wall of custom-built bookshelves, the spacious living room steps down to a concrete-floored dining room; the spacious kitchen has basic beige ceramic floor tiles and glossy black-granite countertops on white farmhouse-style cabinetry.
At least one of the main-floor guest bedrooms has direct access to the yard, while the sprawling master suite encompasses a large bedroom plus a separate sitting room that’s completely open to a luxuriously minimalist bathroom fitted with a freestanding soaking tub and a shower space enclosed by frameless glass panels.
The grassy gardens at the front of the house incorporate a picturesque river rock-lined waterfall and stream, while the back of the house wraps around a flagstone-paved courtyard with a built-in grilling station. A flagstone path passes a fire pit as it makes its way across a flat lawn to a dark-bottomed swimming pool private enough to skinny dip unseen by neighbors.
