There’s a two-block section of Second Street, located between Byrant and Townsend in South Beach, that, in a parallel world, could’ve been one of the coolest slices of SF. It has the Chronicle Books office and the Clocktower building. It’s got South Park nearby. It had the greatest sandwich shop of all time (RIP Merigan). And there’s even a stalwart watering hole that’s a neighborhood fixture.
The area also lays claim to 650 Second, a circa-1926 warehouse conversion now brimming with chic loft-style homes. One such abode, #502, hit the market this week for an eye-bulging $4.95 million.
Featuring four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and an ample 4,190 square feet, this fifth-floor condo comes with concrete columns, exposed steel beams, industrial windows, and polished wood floors, all of which emit a strong NYC sensation.
This 1996 converted home also boasts a gallery entrance that, according to the realtor, was “designed to display a well-curated art collection.” The mounted television in the living room is cleverly concealed by a wall hanging. And the master bathroom comes with a soaking tub and steam showers.
Also of note: There’s an attached guest apartment with a separate entrance.
The listing is through Don DeFranco and Carol Goldberg of Sotheby’s International Realty San Francisco Brokerage.
