Lighthouse Lofts is a corner historic building in an urban South of Market neighborhood. Originally built in 1924 as the “Lighthouse for the Blind,” this Art Deco building was converted in 1996 into 22 contemporary live/work lofts.

Situated on the top floor, #308 is comprised of three lofts combined by the owner/architect to create approximately 4,000 square feet of dynamic custom space with 16 to 19-foot sandblasted ceilings and six free standing concrete columns. Original oversized industrial windows flood the space with natural light. The loft is currently configured with an open kitchen featuring granite and stainless counters, high end stainless appliances and a rotating bar area. The large living area with soaring ceilings, electrically operated custom window shades and a 1924 vault safe makes this a unique home. Translucent fiberglass sliding screens, which can create a third sleeping area and/or office with half bath, on the main level lends the space endless possibilities for use.

A curved steel staircase with wood treads leads to the loft master suite with walk-in closet housing ergonomically friendly Miele washer/dryer at waist level. The master en-suite bath with City views boasts a radiant heated Roman tub and double overhead steam shower in a frameless glass surrounded room. There is also a second loft bedroom with bath on this level. A catwalk with frameless glass guardrails adds interest.

The floors on the main level are a combination of hickory/pecan strip hardwood and stained concrete. The walls are a mix of concrete, finished painted surfaces and Italian blue veneer plaster provide an abundance of gallery space with dramatic lighting. There is a Macintosh stereo with three zones and IR remote CD/video drawers. The loft is fully wired for the most sophisticated home and office.

Enjoy City views from the sheltered roof deck with gas grill barbecue and outdoor furniture. There are 2 deeded parking spaces (16 & 17) and a triple storage unit with a 750 bottle wine rack in the basement.
