Not much love aimed at 1080 Chestnut, the Russian Hill high rise that looks like something Richard Neutra might have built. (But, alas, did not.) Nevertheless, a midcentury modern gem that often goes overlooked.

And with that, a unit inside the 14-story building landed on the market today. First time on the market in 48 years, this two-bedroom and two-bath unit is up for grabs, featuring a wraparound terrance, interiors by Val Arnold, and 1,622 square feet.

The austere building boasts simple aluminum window bands and somewhat nifty elevator bank on the front. Delightful. Also, most stressfully, anyone interested in buying this property must first gain approval by the building’s cooperative board. Sitcom fodder waiting to happen!

Asking is $3,100,000.
