Huge Holy Houses
Old Church Remodeled into the $7.5 Million 601 Dolores Street Home

By: Clarissa Hilary Basham (Apprentice) Mar 23, 11

The 601 Dolores is a San Francisco home with an amazing story that any home owner would love to tell their visitors. This upcycled structure is sure to make spectators flat-out jealous.

Some pretty major renovations took place to make this former church livable by home standards. Siamak Akhavan, commercial developer and current owner, has turned this fixer-upper into a luxurious estate in 5 years, dubbing it the 601 Dolores. The interior and exterior of the building have been re-worked, revamped, patched, filled, recovered, polished and shined to perfection. A major overhaul was involved to turn this previously pious place of worship into a family dwelling. 

This century-old church is for sale at $7.5 million—-well worth the extensive room, 17 ft. ceilings, hardwood floors, marble counters, endless storytelling material, gorgeous scenery, and of course, jealousy from your friends.
