Barry's verdict:
If you want to live in the cool part of Mission then this place is it. It has a walk score of 97, 5 mins from Tartine Manufactory and Heath Ceramics and not much further to the Mission and Valencia Street hub of shops and restaurants. This is a true loft with an abundance of space and light. The vaulted ceilings make it airy and being a corner unit there are windows aplenty which increase the feeling of light and space. The mezzanine master bedroom may need some adapting to allow for more privacy but with a little imagination this loft would be an amazing space to live in.
