Extraordinary loft conversion in San Francisco

San Francisco’s most extraordinary contemporary conversion penthouse loft tucked in the heart of the bustling Rincon Hill. Built in 1928 with a 20th century industrial facade, the former Smitty Knitting Factory was converted in 1998 by renowned Bay Area architects Abrams & Milliken.

The upper level features a captivating grand salon with 20 foot exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, handsome steel trusses and walls of windows overlooking a magical garden with fountains and oversized skylights which shower the home in natural sunlight. Striking Venetian plaster finishes grace the living room walls showcasing art beautifully.

The spacious master suite incorporates a private bedroom overlooking a lush garden setting, a large dressing area, three walk-in closets and a showcase bathroom designed with blue glass mosaic tiling, light stone flooring and industrial lighting.

The open floor plan chef’s kitchen designed by Pacassa Studios is well equipped with a commercial grade DCS range and grill, premier appliances, mahogany veneer cabinetry and stainless steel counters. A popular kitchen feature is the curved, dual-level entertainment island and wine bar uniquely capped in polished aluminum.

Level two offers a guest bedroom with private access, a second full bathroom, a media room and home office. Level one houses a private garage offering two car parking with internal access, a home gym and multiple storage areas. With a total area of 3,132 square feet, this incredible home is listed for sale at $3,250,000 here.

Amazing pictures! I agree with GarageCat. The wood supports really do give it a extra special look.

What a beautiful space. The trusses and wood rafters make a great backdrop for the upper level. Well done, if the furniture is included I’ll take it.
