You Save: $46,000
We just can't quite wrap our heads around this 2-bed, 2-bath loft condo in South Beach. Is it contemporary? Is it rustic? It's hard to tell. For one, it's in the Oriental Warehouse, which was built in 1868 but converted to loft condos in 1996. Hence the juxtaposition of all the metal and glass with the brick and timber. The kitchen is by far the strangest example of this. Most of it looks like it should be somewhere in a log cabin in Idaho, but there, right above the rooster floor mats, are granite and subway tile. It's a similar situation with the light fixtures - swirly abstract things in the kitchen, and wrought-iron chandeliers in the living room. So needless to say, we can think of a few improvements you could make to make the place less exhausting to look at -- fix the weird light fixtures and the bathroom tile migraine, and you've got yourself a pretty swell 1,572 square feet to call home. For $1,149,000 you could be quite close to the Embarcadero and AT&T Park, and not have to worry about the inconvenience of parking there - the unit comes with two garage spaces. HOA are $540 a month, which is high but not totally indigestible. What do you think dear readers? Can we expect another chop for this multi-faceted warehouse loft?
