Nekadašnja luteranska crkva u blizini parka Delores pretvorena je za tri miliona dolara u porodičnu kuću u kojoj sada živi pisac Siamak Akhavan.

Izgradnja gotske crkve počela je 1909. godine i od tada je promenila brojne vlasnike. Pre tri godine kupio ju je Akhavan i odlučio da je pretvori u svoj dom. Zadržao je veličanstvenu fasadu ali je zato unutrašnjost potpuno izmenjena. Dodati su spratovi, stepenice i brojne sobe pa se sada kuća prostire na oko 1.500 kvadratnih metara. Urađena su i dodatna ojačanja na zgradi kako bi bila otpornija na zemljotrese.

Nova kuća ima tri spavaće sobe, ogromnu trpezariju sa balkonima i prostrane holove sa pasažima. Ručno ocrtana tavanica je očuvana i restauirana a zadržana su i originalna vrata i prozori s vitražima. Iz soba se pruža i lep pogled na San Francisko.

Iako je vrednost kuće procenjena na deset, gospodin Akhavan je prodaje za “svega” 7,49 miliona dolara.
