This incredible modern loft space is located in the converted Oriental Warehouse, considered to be the most desirable loft building in San Francisco, California. The historical brick and timber structure dates back to 1867. According to Noe Hill, “It is all that remains of the Pacific Mail Steamship Co., a firm that was the first to establish regular mail, passenger and trade service between the U.S. and the Orient.
“The building played a central role as the primary storage and distribution point for imports of tea, rice and silk from Asia and was designated a landmark by the city of San Francisco in 1977.” In 1996, the warehouse was converted into 66 residential live-work loft spaces by Edmonds + Lee Architects. This allowed the opportunity for homeowners to purchase spacious, open concept lofts characterized by the original timbers and illuminated by natural light.
Asking: This striking loft is listed for sale at $1,695,000 on the real estate website Sotheby’s while the link lasts.
The Oriental Warehouse is located in an ideal location of South Beach, in the South End District. The loft consists of 1,397 square feet of living space with an open plan kitchen, living and dining area. Additional highlights includes a full bathroom with integrated laundry room and master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and home office.
This loft space is just one of a handful of units in the building that includes some incredible highlights. Original exposed brick and wood timber beams, soaring 20-foot high ceilings, large windows, skylights, fantastic natural light and notable privacy. These type of amenities can only be found in an authentic and historical conversion loft.
What We Love: An open and airy floorplan makes this loft feel spacious. The history of this warehouse makes this home more unique, one-of-a-kind, in addition to its fantastic location. Loving the exposed wood beams, exposed brick, warmth of the hardwood flooring and upper level loft space.
