Hitsorical Context and Architecural Description

During the “Roaring Twenties,” the Outer Richmond District roared with the sound of saws and hammers. After World War I, prosperity was high and the growing popularity of private automobiles allowed San Franciscans to settle in neighborhoods farther away from the congested Downtown. Block upon block of speculative houses went up across the sand dunes, turning western San Francisco into a vibrant residential district.

The house at 5750 Fulton Street was built in 1923 by carpenter Samuel F. Johnson and architect Charles J. Strothoff. The two were partners in designing and building numerous houses in the Richmond District, including the entire western blockface of 33rd Avenue, around the corner from 5750 Fulton Street. As those houses demonstrate, Johnson and Strothoff built tracts of houses identical in plan and facade arrangement but set apart by unique architectural detailing. 5750 Fulton Street, standing independently, facing Golden Gate Park, is even more unique. Its detached situation and generous lot afforded Strothoff freedom in designing ornamental detailing that is showcased within a side courtyard.

5750 Fulton Street was also unusual in that it was not sold to a buyer immediately upon completion. The first known occupant of the house was Samuel Johnnson's daughter, Marion Frances Johnson. At the time, she was about 24 years old and an undergraduate student at the University of California, Berkeley. By 1926, however, she again lived at her parent's house on Cabrillo Street, suggesting that she may have been acting as a caretaker of the Fulton Street house until her father was able to sell it.

The house was first owned by Aaron and Rose Cohen. The Cohens were Russian Jews who immigrated to the United States via Canada in 1909. Aaron Cohen was the president of the Cohen Furniture Company and the couple housed a lodger. Irene Manuck was a 19-year-old girl of Russian decent, who paid her rent by working as a stenographer for a wholesale clothing company. The Cohens lived at 5750 Fulton Street until 1936. The next owners were Milton and Mae Williams and Mae's mother, Rose Scheel. Milton Williams sold wholesale toys and, later, was the proprietor of a variety shop. The Williamses lived at 5750 Fulton Street until the early 1950s. Then from 1955 through the 1980s, the house was owned and occupied by V. Lorel Bergeron, who was a plastic and reconstructive surgeon.

The house at 5750 Fulton Street is designed in the Spanish Colonial style. It has a flat front, clad with stucco, which features a recessed segmental-arch garage entry at the center of the first story. The garage is flanked by tall narrow windows that are screened by turned wood grilles, a hallmark of the Spanish Colonial style. Above, three round arched openings fitted with mulit-lite wood French doors span the second story, creating another Spanish motif; the arcade. The openings each have a decorative balconette at the bottom, ornamental ironwork being another Spanish trait. A short chimney impressed with an arched panel and topped by a red clay tile roof anchors the left side of the clay-tiled roofline, while a spiraled colonette creates visual interest at the facade's right corner. This colonette is a subtle nod to the Churrigueresque, an elaborate form of decoration dating to the Spanish Baroque period that was typically profuse in twisted and spiraled ornament.

Perhaps most interesting is the extension of the facade to the east, forming a wall that encloses the side courtyard. With an arched and iron-gated opening, turned wood grille, and red tile roofs, it is reminiscent of walls found at the Spanish Missions or those enclosing private residential courtyards in Spain. Within the courtyard, arcade window patterns continue, as do delicate spiraled colonettes. Steps elevate the visitor above the patio below, to a covered entry that is announced by more substantial Chirriguereque columns with Corintian capitals supporting a round arched hood.

Neighborhood


Outer Richmond

Families and singles alike seek out the Outer Richmond for its laid back, beach-town quality. Residents find a great outdoor adventure, taking in the relaxing sun, or bundling up for walks on a foggy day.
At the western edge you’ll find Ocean Beach, and to the south Golden Gate Park, both within easy reach. A relatively flat terrain in all directions, biking and hiking are a central means of transport. San Francisco’s Muni is also an option, conveniently delivering residents to the Civic Center and Financial District.
Ocean lovers are in their element in the Outer Richmond. Ocean view walks, forested trails and several beaches, make for magical afternoons. China Beach is a small but breathtaking destination, popular for sunbathing, and one of the only places in the city safe enough for swimming. Baker Beach, and its mile of waterfront, delivers magnificent views of the Marin Headlands and the Golden Gate Bridge. The most famous of the beaches is Ocean Beach, famous for its weekends of kite flying, wake boarding and good-old-fashioned picnics.
Lands End Trail is a favorite journey for hikers, as it meanders along the rocky cliffs over the sea - passing the historic Sutro Baths and the Legion of Honor. And of course there is the majestic Golden Gate Park, with numerous crisscrossing paths, easily accessible. If golfing is your game, there’s the private Lincoln Park Golf Club where you’ll risk missing your putt due to the tremendous ocean views from every hole.
After a memorable day by the sea, you’ll wander down the main drag, Geary Boulevard, which is lined with restaurants of every ethnicity, from Mexican, Russian, French and Italian to an array of establishments serving food from every corner of Asia.
You’ll never be short on cultural opportunities in this neighborhood. Art from around the world is regularly featured at The Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park. The movie art-house Balboa Theatre makes its mainstay second-and third-run Euro and independent flicks. And it takes but a short drive or Muni ride to find the new and old treasures made available at Golden Gate Park’s world-class museums.
