Welcome to 93 Cumberland in The Light House! This unique townhouse condominium has to be seen to fully appreciate; it is truly a work of art. Across from the lush palm trees of Dolores Park is a 100+ year-old restored neoclassical church that was converted into four condominium units. 93 Cumberland has a private entrance tucked away behind a secure gate on Cumberland Street.
The stairway is crafted from the original building timber and features an inviting formal entry and a large storage closet and utility room. Up on the main level, the home centers around a spectacular great room with 30’ cathedral ceilings spanning the entire width (75’) of the building, complete with exposed brick walls, polished cement flooring, steel beams, original and repurposed woodwork and walnut paneling, art-glass clerestory windows, and more. An open industrial-style chef’s kitchen is equipped with deluxe Miele appliances, custom lighting and Polylac cabinetry, and endless dining and seating areas are scattered across this enormous central gathering space. On this floor is a bedroom with exposed brick walls, three closets, plus a walk-in closet, and adjacent is an attractive bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower and two linen closets. Off the hallway is a chic half bathroom with marble sink, and at the top of the stairs is a lovely office or nursery. Upstairs are two bedrooms, both with incredible skylights and exposed brick walls. The front bedroom has an attached walk-in closet with a separate skylight and window. The generous back bedroom looks out over the shared garden, and adjacent to the bedroom is a double-height walk-in closet. These rooms share a stunning bathroom with a double vanity, limestone Roman tub and a glass-enclosed walk-in shower. A hallway connecting the bedrooms is illuminated by overhead skylights and one of the sides of the hallway has a remarkable lattice-covered opening overlooking the great room below.
On the lower floor is another impressive open great room which is currently used as a family room/sitting room, and den/media room. The den features wood paneling, exposed brick and exposed beams overhead and is encircled by steel columns. This space could be ideal for a home business use as it has a separate entryway from the garage and can be divided into multiple bedrooms or other uses. Off the family room/bedroom is an expansive laundry room/prep kitchen with quartz countertops, tile backsplash, and side-by-side washer/dryer and sink, as well as endless cabinet and prep space – perfect for entertaining and storage. Adjacent to the laundry room is a contemporary full bathroom with a quartz-topped vanity, marble tile surround and a glass-enclosed shower.
The unit includes 1-car parking and the one-of-a-kind building offers a shared bike room and a beautiful garden.
