When you think about homes in the area of Twitter's headquarters (1355 Market) you think of lofts and condos. 542-544 Natoma is a different beast. This penthouse home is a three-level residence with a to-die-for roof deck. Given its live/work designation, this place could become a lovely ecosystem—unless, of course, you are one of the 300-some people who work at Twitter. In that case, you will need to walk roughly three blocks to work.
There are a lot of defining features in this 2,237-square-foot-space—a grand center staircase that acts as a atrium, two master suites, a modern gourmet kitchen, 17-foot-high windows, two parking spots—but the thing that sets it apart for us are the four outdoors spaces (two decks, one balcony, and a large roof deck). This kind of fresh air access is hard to come by in SoMa.
The area is, as the listing says, "a rapidly changing neighborhood" that's "in the center of the new tech-hub." In short, it's a hot neighborhood that's only getting cooler. The renderings including with the listing map it out, showing new buildings and 23,000 square feet of open space planned near the Chronicle Building at 5th and Mission.
