Urban Drama and Scale in Secluded SoMa
NYC-style drama and scale stashed in a quiet corner of SoMa! This impeccable two-story loft with two bedrooms and two full baths feels both majestic and intimate at once. Vaulted double-high ceilings and an arresting wall of windows dominate the open-plan ground floor, sending light into every corner of the home. An artful modern kitchen blends beautifully with the main living area and encourages easy movement of family and guests between the two. Upstairs, an expansive loft floats above the ground floor, sharing its ample light and space while simultaneously feeling worlds away. Behind, the secluded master suite is a serene escape complete with a private balcony, custom double closets, and a gracious full bath. Tucked down a tree-lined side street, this home is secretly in the middle of it all—blocks from some of the city’s best cafés, breweries, restaurants, and entertainment, and a quick MUNI or BART ride to everything else SF has on offer.
The grand proportions of this home make an immediate impression; the entrance opens directly into the wide-open main living area dominated by a two-story-high expanse of west-facing windows. Cool concrete floors and a slate-gray accent wall ascending above the simple gas fireplace add a modern architectural feel, while soft white walls, natural light, and thoughtful finishes create a poised, gallery-like space ready to be personalized.
Opposite the windows, a smart open kitchen picks up the cool color palette of the main room with coordinated slate-gray cabinetry, beautiful white quartz countertops, and stainless appliances. Floating shelves keep the space feeling light, and a prep/eating bar makes cooking while entertaining a pleasure (as does the five-burner gas range). Guests are encouraged to chat with the chef as they move about the space, snacking at the kitchen bar or settling onto the main room’s built-in window seat to take in the view while sipping a glass of wine.
A full bath just off the entry is spa-like with its white porcelain pedestal sink, sand-colored tiling, and glass-enclosed shower. Just across, a deep entry closet provides more than ample room for coats and storage.
Soft neutral carpeting quiets your steps up the stairs leading to the second story loft area. A glass block accent wall perched at the top of the stairs adds polish and privacy while enhancing the open feel of the sweeping loft space. A minimal metal railing at the loft’s edge likewise allows maximum light to flow, as do large, south-facing windows that take in the urban-landscape view of nearby buildings and billboards.
Full of potential, the loft can be used as a luxe, oversized bedroom or cleverly divided into into strategic work and living areas. There’s room enough to evolve the space with your lifestyle—convert it into home office, gym, and/or media spaces as desired. Stashed just off the main loft area, a large laundry closet hides a stacked washer and dryer.
Tucked behind the loft, the graceful master suite is a calm refuge. Large east- and south-facing windows, as well as the sliding glass doors leading to the inviting back balcony, allow plenty of natural light into the spacious room, which easily accommodates both sleeping and sitting areas. The polished master bath is equally accommodating, as are two large double-door closets with custom organization systems.
Though this home feels secluded, the city is truly right outside your door. Start your mornings at Sightglass coffee’s flagship location, less than two blocks away, grab your laptop and “work from home” over an afternoon beer at Cellarmaker Brewing, and pick up one of SF’s new favorite pizzas from Square Pie Guys for dinner. Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and Cole Hardware are all close by. Take advantage of SoMa’s walking proximity to SF’s downtown and waterfront, or hop on one of the neighborhood’s multiple MUNI buses to get anywhere else in the city. And though you’re in the middle of it all, getting out of SF is a breeze; a short walk gets you to BART or Caltrain, and both 101 and 280 are nearby.
