Location: 9 Bernice Street, SoMa
Size: 3-bed, 2-bath, 6,200-square-feet
Pitch: "LIVE, WORK, CREATE! 9 Bernice offers endless possibilities with its impressive volume and ability to adapt to multiple needs. Sun-drenched throughout both levels, the main level features a large open kitchen, full bathroom and stained cement floors. Floor-to-ceiling windows occupy the northeast wall of the loft and roll open to a spacious wraparound terrace. Easily used as a private master suite or additional workspace, the upper level features rich wood floors and awesome bath!"
Our Take: Home gym complete with dunking man wall stencil next to the basketball court? Check. Master shower so large that it doesn't even need a curtain? Check. Garage windows that disappear so that you literally have no boundaries between outdoor and indoor? Check. Snowboard wall? Check. Please invite us to the housewarming party. Monthly HOA dues are $651 and there's 3-car parking in the garage.
Open House: Sunday, 2 to 4PM

Pitch: "Uber sexy, this is the largest live/work loft (approx. 2,350 sq. ft. per owner) in Showplace Square! Venetian plaster walls, polished concrete floors, new wool carpet & fresh paint, this loft boasts high ceilings & dramatic windows. On the main level, you'll find a huge living/entertaining/dining area, chef's kitchen, 1/2 bath & laundry closet. Upstairs is a large master suite, with ample closet space & full bath. A steel catwalk leads from the bedroom to an area that can be used as a small office! Originally tri-level, the downstairs area is now a separate gallery/office space with 1/2 bath & bar sink; it has exterior street front access and can be converted back to a 2nd bedroom by installing a spiral staircase to the upper level!"
Our Take: We're loving that elevated reading nook in the living area. Also the variety of grays used throughout. Monthly HOA dues are $771 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.

Size: 2-bed, 2-bath, 1,456-square-feet
Pitch: "The Oriental Warehouse is THE premier loft bldg in SF's South Beach area. This is a designated historic landmark built in 1867 and converted to 66 Live/Work lofts in 1996. Exposed brick & timber w/ stunning architectural details. Steps from Embarcadero Waterfront, AT & T Park, SFMoma, Yerba Buena Gdns, Metreon, Moscone & many restaurants/galleries, this is sophisticated urban living. Loft #408 is top flr with a gorgeously remodeled kitchen, 2BR's, 2 remodeled full Bathrooms, reclaimed hdwd floors, custom finishes, 2 skylts, front loading w/ d and 2 deeded parking + storage cages."
Our Take: The very dark kitchen is a little too bachelor pad for us, but that's just our take. We're digging the exposed brick sprinkled throughout and the location of the Oriental Warehouse.
Open House: Sunday, 2 to 4PM
