Home of the Week: Conversion Loft in Mint Plaza

February 1, 2012

The most beautiful industrial conversion condo I have ever seen…

Well, I have seen some good ones so it’s hard to justify the absoluteness of that statement.  But that’s the reaction I had when I walked in last week and saw 410 Jessie #1002 (also known as 2 Mint Plaza).  It’s a spectacular space, all on one level, with soaring 12’ ceilings and exposed concrete beams.  One bedroom and one bath but at nearly 1200 square feet, there’s plenty of room to create a guest sleeping area.  Open floor plan, with a gourmet kitchen and an architecturally interesting spiral staircase that ascends to a large private roof deck with views of the city.  The photos really don’t do it justice.  If you want to see how right I am about that, take a look — it’s open Sunday, January 29 from 2 to 4.

The building features a large workout space with a roofdeck a few steps away that has a hot tub with a view and a dog walking area.  Nice!

Mint Plaza is located behind the old Mint at 5th & Mission.  Right across the street from the valet parking entrance to Nordstrom’s.  A sophisticated space in an equally sophisticated location perfect for a 1st home or a pied a terre.  Listed by Ron Parks at Decker Bullock Sothebys.
