Set across from palm-lined Dolores Park in San Francisco’s Mission District, 93 Cumberland is the final one of just four townhouse condominiums in the Neoclassical Beaux Arts church that is now The Light House. All the most dramatic elements of this part of the church combine to make a stunning new statement in this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home.
When San Francisco architect William H. Crim, Jr., designed the onetime Second Church of Christ, Scientist in 1915, he gave it an Italianate flair, lavishing it with columns and archways. The building’s wood-framed truss system dome remains one of only two in San Francisco.
Today, living here centers around a spectacular great room with thirty-foot ceilings, dazzling clerestory windows, exposed brick walls and polished cement floors. Vintage steel beams join with original and repurposed woodwork to create fascinating echoes of the space’s past. Sweeping seating and dining areas, served by an open industrial style Miele kitchen, make this an entertainer’s heaven.
Also on the main level is a bedroom with walk-in closet, gorgeous full bath with glass shower and an office, all enriched by gleaming hardwood floors. Up a stairway with original carved bannisters lie two skylit bedrooms, two walk-in closets, and a stunning bath with indulgent limestone soaking tub and glass shower. On the lower floor there’s a den/game room and a family room that could become a fourth bedroom. Also here are an expansive laundry room/prep kitchen and a stylish full bath with shower. The home includes one generous garage parking space along with a shared bike room and a beautiful private garden.
Anchored by Dolores Park, the home’s Mission District setting is both one of the most culturally and historically rich parts of the city and a trendy world of shops, music venues and eateries. The unique combination of old and new makes it one of San Francisco’s most dynamic neighborhoods.
