Ideal for the non-smoking corporate executive or urban hipster(s) who would like to experience the creativity of San Francisco in the hotbed of SOMA (South of Market), this hidden gem is a wildly imaginative showplace featured on HGTV and Ultimate Kitchens on The Food Network. Fully furnished with custom-designed built-ins and creative storage solutions, this loft has the unique distinction of being featured on home decorating shows, design industry magazines and books, as well as in national newspapers. One-of-a-kind custom built-ins abound, including a 1950's retro diner booth breakfast nook, which can also double as a work desk. (Clients LOVE this!) Sun-drenched with 17' floor-to-ceiling windows, the loft also features an original mural by acclaimed San Francisco street artist Brian Barneclo. The building offers a spacious courtyard perfect for entertaing and a roof deck with views of the city in motion. 161 Gilbert is located in the trendy SOMA district of San Francisco, off Brannan between Sixth and Seventh Streets, with convenient access to restaurants, shopping, and public transportation. It is walking distance to the Embarcadero waterfront and Piers 30 and 32, where the America's Cup boats are docked. It's also a stone's throw from corporate offices of AirBNB, Pinterest, Zynga, Sega, Adobe, Advent, Mission Bay, UCSF (University of California San Francisco) and more.
