SF Blu. It rhymes easily, which makes it a great candidate for our Valentine’s day post. *Cough, cough, clears throat*
Roses are Red,
SF Penthouses at Blu,
Our Valentines Day post for You.
Awful, I know. I had the pleasure of being at SF Blu, located on Folsom at 2nd street in the Yerba Buena district – last Friday for a luxury market meeting with my colleagues at Zephyr. In addition to reviewing how the market for luxury properties in San Francisco was doing, we took time to tour the remaining penthouses available at the SF Blu project.
There are six penthouses in total, with three remaining as of Friday. Those with the most amazing views sold first, and currently Penthouses B, C and F remain. Although, to be fair, I must say that the views from Penthouse F are pretty spectacular. It is the largest of the remaining homes, with an asking price of $2,925,000. The least expensive that remains in Penthouse B with an asking price of $2,500,000. Square footage runs from approximately 2,245 for floorplan B to 2,573 for floorplan F. For those of you not interested in the penthouses, they have about 10 or 15 of their 2 bedroom 2 bath models available.
All of the penthouse homes are on three levels, with private living space on the lowest level, the main entrance, living room, dining room, and kitchen on the main level, and a solarium and private roof deck on the top floor. It is a nicely done and thoughtful division of space, and for those with families or who just like their private rooms kept private, you will definitely appreciate the layout.
Finishes are nicely done throughout, essentially what you would expect for a home in this price range, although I personally am not a fan of the cabinet and appliance white oak finish in the kitchens. But your mileage may vary. The master bath is spacious, and I absolutely love the bathtub they went with. Below are photos I snapped, I apologize for the quality of some of them but it should give you a good feel for the space and finishes. Click on any thumbnail for a larger image.
