Two and a half years ago, an abandoned Capp Street warehouse once used to store toys went on the market, dubbed a "Mission Mansion" by the ambitious seller, who pitched it as a singular development opportunity. After only five days, it sold for nearly $1.4 million.
Now we see what they’ve done with the place, converting the upstairs into a 3,440-square-foot, two-bedroom, single-family home, perched atop the former warehouse turned art studio.
Located only a few feet from where Capp Street ends at Cesar Chavez Boulevard, the circa-1949 building at 1144 Capp is a bit of a weird and wooly specimen, a tasteful flat standing on the shoulders of a hunkered-over industrial space.
Downstairs it’s all exposed beams, concrete floors and pillars, and custom glass and steel doors, while upstairs you’re looking at hardwood floors, cream-colored walls, an open floor plan, and track lighting. Formerly a darkened hole, four skylights now flood the downstairs with natural light.
The building rehab was just what the doctor ordered, and the end product is a singularly cool Mission creation that’s now being offered for a formidable $2.7 million. Check out the video tour for a better look.
