Fabulous Art Deco 4th Floor Studio on Market in Cool Tenderloin

The Tenderloin in SF: lamented and celebrated, and there’s really a lot more to celebrate in today’s Tenderloin. It’s a cool place to live now, especially with the neighborhood’s art and night life, crazy good shopping, cable car atmosphere, its condos and micro apartments opening up in fashionable, history-blessed buildings. The history’s still fascinating: notorious madam Tessie Wall in 1898 opened her ground-breaking brothel on O’Farrell Street. The 1906 earthquake and fire razed the Tenderloin to the ground, and was rebuilt with a large number of single room occupancy hotels—and SF is still in 2016 the world’s capital of single room occupancy hotels. Famous artists, writers, and film directors lived here in their struggles-to-success days.

Now on 631 O’Farrell, at the famed and very Art Deco attractive 1920 Hamilton Building there’s a charming, uber chic studio apartment on the 4th Floor that I’m representing. It’s Unit 411 and its asking price is $479,000—an extraordinary value compared to many other Tenderloin micro units ensconced in buildings that don’t come near the splendor and glamour of the Hamilton. Consider its so-attentive round the clock front desk staff, the grand foyer and the contemplative courtyard.

The floor plans for this micro are very livable, conceived by someone with sense and taste. There’s plenty of closet space and a properly full kitchen and holy of holies bathroom.

Give me a call, and let’s talk about Unit 411 at the Hamilton.
