Shipping Container Loft Conversion Gets Attention on SF Chronicles On The Block

Bush Street shipping container loft conversion sells for $5.25M

Locals may have walked right past this warehouse-style home without even knowing it was there.

The 3,600-square-foot abode, once the Chinese Laundry/Tooth Powder factory, is located at 2230 Bush St. The façade only hints at the interior of this “Dwell Magazine-featured adaptive reuse artistic loft masterpiece,” to quote the listing language.

Socketsite writes that the conversion credit goes to Jeff Wardell and Claudia Sagan whose aim was to “showcase their urban art collection” in the loft. Along with this achievement though are several others: three beds, three baths, 17-foot ceilings, and two internally sited “customized cantilevered shipping containers” that function as actual rooms (this effect must be seen to be appreciated. See gallery above). There’s also 800 square feet of outdoor living, including a deck with a hot tub and shower, a grill, and a hammock. A two-car garage rounds out the convenient city-living options.

Listed at a steep $4.995 million in late March of this year, this unique home has sold even more steeply with a final price of $5.25 million.
