Extraordinary church in San Francisco converted into a modern residence

An extraordinary thing happens when old buildings are repurposed: the old charm is brought into light by an architect’s mind. Converting a beautiful, old gothic church into a liveable residence was a challenge. The building became a family residence overlooking San-Francisco’s Mission Dolores Park. Featuring three bedrooms, the church built in 1909 was renovated to fit a modern lifestyle: the brick exterior was renovated and the stain-glass windows restored.

The interior also received a makeover: new floors, upgraded fixtures and the house also underwent a seismic retrofitting to better endure earthquakes. With amazing rooms turned into residential spaces, the house prides itself on having a master suite level with a huge bathroom, a library, a media room, dressing room and home office. The lower level can serve as an art gallery, a recording studio, a gym or a wine cellar.

For sale at Hill & Co Real Estate, the residence is offered at $7,490,000.
