2169 Folsom, San Francisco, California 94110
The Box Factory Lofts, San Francisco’s most creative and engaged live-work arts community in the heart of the Mission, is proud to host the city’s most expansive and dramatic live-work loft property within its walls. Residence M305 is at once an engaging and inspired work of art as much as it is a place to call home and place of artistic expression.
Set on the idyllic, quiet and sunny northeast corner, on the top floor of The Box Factory, this incredible 2 level home and work space was configured from the bare plan of the original factory framework. Spanning nearly 5,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space, the property is home to both a main residence and a flexible enclosed studio apartment, washed in light and connected by sliding translucent doors. One feels naturally at home with neighbors in this creative community passing through the organic gardens below and ascending into the earthy, wood on wood appointed hallway before entering the dramatic spaces of the residence.
Once inside the thoughtful space planning becomes apparent allowing one to flow directly into the adjacent studio with the privacy of the main residence concealed behind a grand sliding door or leaving both open to expose the rush of southern light and the grand entertaining room to the north. The studio can serve equally as engaging work space or a private residence for in-house guests or relatives.
The main entertaining room is extraordinary in scale, volume and impact highlighted by city views to the north via industrial Georgian style windows. Whether hosting creative events, private parties or simply expansive open plan living, this main room is unparalleled in the market and in its flexibility. Flowing into the main room through French doors is a creative art space or guest bedroom which is served by a dramatic, yet peacefully inspired bath to the west, featuring a huge soaking tub, open shower, finely set wood counters and calming interior, designed to evoke creativity in moments of serenity.
The expansive kitchen, punctuated by industrial pendant lights, plays host to an enormous working and dining island, designed to inspire creative collaborations whether culinary or artistically informed. Dornbracht fixtures, Neff cabinetry, under mount wine cooler, Viking and Thermidor appliances and a 1,000+ pound granite slab island are just a few of the well considered accoutrements.
Up the floating, maple plank staircase one discovers the mezzanine washed with dramatic light and views through the picture clerestory window, folding nano wall doors and enormous walk-out deck. So significant, the deck hosts both play areas for pets, seating area for numerous guests and plenty of room for cooking and dining for parties upwards of 12 or more. The deck captures views of the Mission below, the city skyline to the North and shades of Twin Peaks to the west.
Within, lies an ancillary office room with it’s own skylight, sharing the expansive views and served by a quietly concealed modern powder room, perfect for guests during an evening of artistic revelry.
The master suite is beyond parallel in the universe of average loft spaces, featuring a pass through fireplace that divides the sleeping area and it’s own intimate seating space with the informal lounge both of which enjoy outlooks to the southern deck, washed in sun and overlooking the gardens below. The suite enjoys a private yet perfectly set closet and dressing area with thoughtfully planned storage including configured sliding drawers, waterfall organizers, overhead dressing lights and ample natural light when needed. The masterpiece of the suite is the master bath adorned in mosaic tile work and completely washed in southern and eastern light through a multitude of windows. Glass enclosed shower stall, deep soaking tub, double raised vanities, semi-private commode, sliding lower storage and a warm embrace of sparkling mosaic color bring it all together. Further, the bath enjoys direct access to the souther deck featuring plantings, ample seating and prepped (per seller) to accommodate a spa with it’s reinforced framing and connected gas, water and drainage lines.
This incredible live-work residence features radiant heating throughout with it’s own efficient boiler unit controlled by a Nest thermostat. Other features include an enormous utility and laundry room, ample storage within, custom storage cabinetry, highly efficient, recessed LED lighting throughout and a secret storage a behind hidden panels, intelligently designed for the keeping of one’s more valuable belongings.
The Box Factory Lofts has and continues to host some of San Francisco’s most inspired and creative businesses and artists, including the late Rex Ray. Rex Ray and other noted artists have found a home for many of their works of art within the walls of this incredible, creative sanctuary, known as M305.
