60 Rausch Street #201
Carefully curated with gorgeous architecture and stylish design, this expansive loft space houses 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths across two levels, with approx. 2,623 square feet of expansive and open live/work space. This flexible open floor plan provides the ultimate in versatility and industrial chic: equal parts urban lounge by night and relaxing retreat by day.
Enter through a hallway with gallery walls, soaring ceilings and exposed piping and industrial details. At the end of the hallway, the space opens to a stunning great room, with a wall of massive windows bringing in brilliant natural sunlight. The space is anchored by polished concrete floors warmed by radiant heat. The living area also offers a giant projection screen and large high walls, perfect for artistic displays. The appealing dining area centers around a birdcage chandelier with plenty of room to seat 8+ guests comfortably.
Beyond the dining area is the chef’s kitchen, which has two sections – an open entertaining portion and a concealed prep kitchen around the corner. All areas of the kitchen have been beautifully renovated with custom white wooden Belmont cabinetry, quartz countertops, glass and wood backsplash, LED lighting, Grohe fixtures, a Viking designer series refrigerator, a gas 5-burner cooktop, hood, and built-in oven, a black composite sink, and a Bosch dishwasher. The open entertaining area centers around an island with overhang for serving and informal dining, with two glass-drop pendants above, a wall of cabinets at the back and two appliance garages on either side with stylish industrial covers. With a wine fridge below, this is the perfect spot to serve, entertain, and dine. Around the corner are the appliances and counterspace for prep, as well as a wall of pantry cabinets that provide excellent storage.
On either side of the hallway are two rooms, both which could serve as bedrooms, workspaces, or additional living space. To the right is a custom-built library, with high-end sliding barn doors, recessed and spot lighting, Helvey Design Studio custom wood shelving with embedded dimmable LED lighting, and two built-in desks, a seated fold-away and a standing desk on wheels. To the left off the hallway is an attractive bedroom or office space with super high ceilings and a large custom sliding industrial metal door.
Also on this floor is a large walk-in closet with a stacked washer and dryer, and two meticulously renovated full and half bathrooms with Kohler and Duravit fixtures, floating vanity, and a rain shower with European drain and glass enclosure in the main bathroom.
Up a flight of stairs, one reaches the lofted bedroom area, made inviting and warm with reclaimed and sustainably finished light Douglas Fir wood flooring by Heritage Salvage and coordinated Helvey Design built-in king bed. Behind the custom bedroom area is a huge storage space, currently used as a workout room and walk-in storage.
The space was designed by entrepreneurs with tech conveniences in mind: Nest thermostat, high-speed internet, hidden home theater/projection screen, LED lighting, and Sonos throughout. It has a fresh air ventilation system, as well as water filtration. It is one of the largest units in the building, and provides the perfect canvas for art, design, and comfortable live/work space.
60 Rausch is a warehouse loft condominium conversion, located in the historic Mullen Building and designed by SF architect George Hauser. This unit was the office space for Hauser and his creative team when they designed the space, and several of his original custom-built touches remain. The location is fabulous; walking/biking distance to museums, shows, the Ferry Building and Embarcadero, SOMA restaurants and nightlife. It is close to tech company hubs, co-working spaces, and convenient transportation options with the Howard-Folsom station nearby.
The building offers a shared roofdeck, bike room, garage parking and oversized elevator. The unit comes with two car parking in tandem, and a dedicated electric car charger. Don’t miss this amazingly unique home: with a versatile floor plan, open and airy feel, abundant natural light, and authentic style; it is truly an urban retreat in the heart of the city.
