Ultra-modern houses may be trending, but often they leave us feeling cold—especially when it comes to San Francisco's minuscule living spaces, which can feel more like Ikea-designed shoeboxes than like livable homes.
And at 1,200 square feet with just one bedroom, this Folsom Street condo could easily have gone the way of too-modern pre-fab, but a few quirky and weathered details make the urban spot feel welcoming.
There are thoughtful details throughout the two-story space. On the main level, the living area is flooded with light from a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the tree-lined street. A wood-paneled gas fireplace is the a dramatic focal point, and there is Spanish porcelain tile throughout.
Exposed brick walls lend a rustic, comfy vibe in the dining area, which is open to the funky kitchen with its granite and quartz counters, Bosch stainless steel appliances, and glossy painted cabinets. The space is peppered with industrial touches including concrete walls, whitewashed brick in the bathrooms, and chrome fixtures.
The master loft is a cozy retreat that can be closed off for total privacy, with an en suite bath that has a floating vanity, deep bathtub/shower, and textured walls. To catch some sun, head outside to the private adjoining patio area—it's a little sanctuary in the center of the city.
Bonus points for in-unit laundry, storage, and garage parking.
