SoMa loft hides a surprise behind modest facade

Like living inside Candy Crush

Tucked away at the end of Gilbert Street, located right off Brannan in SoMa, sits an unassuming residential complex with loft-style units. You’ve seen them. You know them. Or do you? Today a unit inside the modest circa-1995 complex lands on the market, and it’s a secret treat for anyone who yearns for more color in their life.

Featuring one bed, one bath, and 896 square feet, 161 Gilbert, #3 (known as the Candyland Loft) comes with 17-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a mural by street artist Brian Barneclo.

Perhaps most noteworthy—the de-muzzled color and vibrancy shouting from room to room. Drink it in. It’s a lot, but it somehow works. The ad notes that this place is “chock full of eclectic art” and “may be sold furnished or unfurnished.”

HOAs are $642/month. Asking is $799,000.
