Guy transforms church into his pad (34 Photos)

The owner of the church, Siamak Akhavan had the bright idea to convert his church into a pretty stellar home that overlooks the Mission Delores. The house is now for sale for $7,400,000. Good Lord, indeed.

    What do you need 15 living rooms for? It's neat, but could've been a loot cooler.

    Except for the hardwood floors, and the openness of the bedrooms, I'm loving this.

    1) It's Mission Dolores (the district) in San Francisco and the church overlooks Dolores Park. 2) Actually, no one converted it into their pad – all of that stuff is just staging. It's been on the market for YEARS at $10M, but dropped since no one would buy it. There were plans to convert it into condos for a while, but that plan wasn't approved by the city. 3) Apparently, someone bought it, since it's in escrow. 4) Went to a party there a while back – very cool inside.

      UPDATE: Children's Day School is buying it for $6.6M, so this schmuck lost almost $4M on it.

    does #6 remind anyone else of either:
    -Kill Bill, or
    -The Matrix? (cue the 'come here' move by Morpheus)
