Calling all cultural creatives! SoMa's legendary Candyland loft is now available for purchase!

This vibrant, imaginative SoMa showplace is San Francisco's most colorful and creative custom loft. Decorated with floor-to-ceiling eye candy collected from exotic world travels, this is no cookie-cutter residence. It was the showcase home on the SF Loft Tour and has been featured on HGTV and Ultimate Kitchens on The Food Network. Every inch of it is photo-worthy.

The space

Live/work - great for a small biz and multiple places where you can set up workstations. One-of-a-kind custom built-ins abound, including a 1950's retro diner booth breakfast nook, sun-drenched with 17' floor-to-ceiling windows, and an original mural by acclaimed San Francisco street artist Brian Barneclo.

The location

Walking distance to Airbnb, Pinterest, Zynga, Dropbox, Adobe, Advent Software and all the tech companies on Brannan and Townsend. Conveniently located near public transit, walking distance to Caltrain and downtown, Union Square, Financial District (FiDi), South Beach, and South Park. Seconds from 101 and 280 freeways - no need to drive across town to get on or off a freeway.

The building

161 Gilbert is a wonderful building with good owners and a shared courtyard with dining table and chairs. A shared roof deck with city views is a large draw to the building. One of the best sights from the roof is the 40,000 square-foot mural by Brian Barneclo (SF Mural), the same street artist who painted the mural inside Candyland. Barnelco's mural inside Candyland was his first, and the mural you can see from the roof deck is the largest mural in San Francisco!
