Welcome back to the Under $700K club, where we salute home listings that manage to keep their initial list price well under seven figures—a rarity in these days of unbridled excess. Today’s offer is a charmer inside a historic building at the edge of the Tenderloin. Get ready to swoon.
A one-bedroom, one-bath loft-style condo inside the Book Concern Building—an innovative, mixed-income micro-loft development targeted toward urban dwellers—unit No. 308 is a corner unit that’s been cared for by a creative San Francisco couple for more than 10 years.
“My husband Danny Montoya and I did the place ourselves,” says owner Erin Feher. “He's a woodworker/owner of the Butterfly Joint. I'm a longtime design editor. It was a total collaboration and we loved creating new pieces/storage solutions as new needs arose.”
Updates to the space include an island counter with butcher block and a five-burner, double-oven stove to the kitchen; reclaimed wood floating shelves; a sleeping loft; a built-in desk/office; and entryway shelves.
“Even though it's a small space, it accommodates a lot of stuff,” notes Feher. “He has over 1,000 records, I have hundreds of books.”
The space also features high ceilings (roughly 11 feet), exposed pipes, and open steel shelving.
As for the neighborhood, it’s located near the alluring yet jarring MidMarket arrondissement. (Psst: Rumor has it a Shake Shack might replace the nearby Carl's Jr.!)
Asking is $525,000.
