The Clinton Residence (also known as the Forum Drive safehouse) is the first safehouse used by protagonist Franklin Clinton in Grand Theft Auto V.


The safehouse is located on Forum Drive, Strawberry, and is unlocked after Franklin and Lamar.


The safehouse is a single-story, three-room (excluding the kitchen and bathroom) bungalow. The player can save their game in Franklin's bedroom, on the first door to the left of the main entrance. Across the hallway is a small living room with a television that can be interacted with and a supply of weed joints that Franklin can take a hit from. The living room leads on to a small kitchen, where Franklin can drink a beer or collect a first-aid kit. A door leading to the back garden can be found in the kitchen, but cannot be used. The interior of the house is characterized by its retro design and decorated with various spiritual and tribal ornaments and artwork. A garage can be found to the left of the property, which is large enough to store one car and one motorcycle (Franklin's Buffalo S and a Bagger obtained in an early mission spawn in the driveway). When replaying a mission (after beating The Hotel Assassination, depending on the mission if Franklin is by his house), Franklin can enter his house and find his room cleared out (since he moved to Vinewood Hills). Chop's kennel can be found in the back garden. The radio station playing inside the house is Radio Los Santos.

Events of GTA V

At the beginning of the game, Franklin Clinton lives here with his aunt Denise, after they were left the house in Franklin's grandmother's will. A short time later, Franklin agrees to take care of Chop, a Rottweiler belonging to his friend Lamar Davis, and Chop soon starts living at the house with Franklin and Denise.

Following Franklin's move to 3671 Whispymound Drive, Vinewood Hills after the Hotel Assassination, the house is turned into a 'center for women' by Denise Clinton, and the interior and garage are made inaccessible to the player (PS3/Xbox 360). In the enhanced version of the game, the garage remains accessible to the player but the house cannot be accessed. After Franklin moves out, Denise will send him an e-mail forbidding him from re-entering the house. Once he has replied, Franklin mentions that one of the mistakes that his mother made was giving her the house.

After Franklin moves to his new safehouse, he can sometimes be seen on Forum Drive driving away from the house, suggesting he was returning to retrieve some of his belongings or to make sure his aunt hadn't done anything to the house. If he returns to the house, the door will be locked and Denise will call from inside, telling Franklin to go away. The two may exchange a few words.


Mission Appearances

Grand Theft Auto V



  • When playing as Michael or Trevor, if the player fires his weapon at the house, Denise can be heard inside complaining and shouting. If the player continues, Franklin will eventually call or text them to stop firing.
  • It is possible to access the interior of the safehouse after Franklin moves out, by going to the roof of the house, switching to another character and then switching back. The player spawns inside, however he cannot save the game, even if playing as Franklin.
    • Franklin can still interact with Denise; Michael cannot interact with her since they never met; Trevor also cannot interact either even though he has met her twice.
