"Surprise!" Some young loft building gave up one of its vital units so that this old corner Victorian in the Mission might live a few extra years. The transplant brings an exposed brick chimney and an open kitchen to a building that could probably use a little outer touch-up too — but hey, the benefit of living inside the building is you don't have to look at its outside. The 1-bed, 1-bath tenancy in common also has one parking spot in a separate garage, plus a storage loft. Asking price: $449,000.
