Live out your best urban dream in this centrally located SoHo style penthouse loft in the highly coveted and architecturally stunning Marquee Lofts. 151 ALICE B. TOKLAS PLACE #802 is a dramatic corner unit that features soaring city views encompassing downtown San Francisco, Twin Peaks and St. Mary’s Cathedral. Dramatic 13-foot ceilings and stunning nearly floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around two sides of this designer open-concept corner penthouse which features exposed architectural elements, mahogany built-ins and 1,257 square-feet of contemporary living space. The unit is enviably situated on the top floor at the northwest corner of the historic and nationally registered 1000 Van Ness building—the former Don Lee Cadillac Showroom, which was built in 1921 and converted in 1999 to residential condos, a 14-plex movie theater, and high-end gym.
Enter the 1+ bedroom and 2 bath penthouse through custom-wood front door to a sophisticated, gallery style entry hall with a distinctive built-in Japanese-style rock garden, fish tank, exposed mushroom-cap concrete pillar, laundry closet, and full guest bathroom. Step into the main living space to find a light filled and spacious open-concept living-dining-kitchen space with dramatic open ceilings, industrial-chic overhead light fixture, and four enormous and nearly floor-to-ceiling windows offering dramatic vistas looking north up Van Ness Avenue, and east to the picturesque downtown skyline.
A beautiful mahogany built-in wraps around the two interior walls of the living space, seamlessly containing a built-in Murphy bed, drop-down desk feature and a secret hidden closet. These built-in features, as well as the layout of the space, allow for the room to be seamlessly divided to add a second bedroom with a barn door conversion, if desired (the unit is deeded as a two bedroom).
The centerpiece of the room is a fully renovated chef’s kitchen featuring professional grade stainless steel appliances including five-burner Frigidaire cooktop with oven below, double-door refrigerator with ice-and-water maker, dishwasher, dual-stainless sink with an industrial faucet fixture, distinctive fan tile backsplash, and a versatile center island + breakfast bar featuring refurbished  mahogany wood and new white quartz countertops.
A stylish master-suite occupies the Northwest corner of the unit, offering stunning and expansive views through each of the four double hung picture windows. The master includes a fully outfitted and expansive walk-in closet, and gorgeous bathroom with chic asymmetrical quartz countertop, a sublime soaking tub with Western facing views, and a separate stall shower with rainwater fixture.
Ride the distinctive custom elevators eight floors down to the stylish and architectural lobby, and stroll to nearby Union Square, the Opera House, Davies Symphony Hall, or the San Francisco Ballet. Hayes Valley, Russian Hill, and the downtown Financial District are all within easy walking distance. Or instead, opt to stay-in and enjoy dinner, a cocktail, and a movie downstairs in the soon to be open high-tech and fully refurbished 4-D theater experience from renowned South Korean cinema company CJ-CGV. The building also contains the posh and popular StudioMix Health Club and Spa.
The unit includes a large deeded parking space in the residential garage below which may accommodate up to two smaller cars parked in tandem. Also included are a large deeded same-floor storage room, hotel-style residential workout room, and a large shared roof deck. The best of sophisticated city-living all at your doorstep.
