2 Clarence Place #3
Sporting poured concrete counters, radiantly heated concrete floors, and some rather nice steel accents throughout (including the hardware on the double barn doors), we’re calling it industrial chic for 2 Clarence Place #3.
In January 2003 it sold for $685,000 and year later (minus a week) for $725,000 which wouldn’t have made for a good investment on account of transaction costs, but did represent year-over-year and apples-to-apples appreciation of 5.8 percent.
The two-bedroom loft is back on the market today and asking $879,000. We can’t confirm what’s been done to the property since 2004 and it won’t be apples-to-apples this time around until we do.
Listing: 2 Clarence Place #3 (2/2) 1,288 sqft – $879,000 [MLS]

    odd furniture choice given the setting.
    it’s a fairly modern loft with somewhat industrial materials (concrete, steel) and then very traditional furniture. it’s like grandma gets incarcerated or something.
    at least the 8 foot long ivy likes living there.
    this place is bizarre. not as bizarre as that place with the huge charging animals, but bizarre.

    The place would look a lot different if they opened those curtains all the way and let them hang straight instead of tying them back.

    I have to agree wholeheartedly with ex SF-er, this one was a major FAIL on the part of the staging firm.
    The furnishing choices show an almost complete lack of imagination and don’t compliment the built-in features of the home at all. Looks like whoever was responsible was in “I just want to be done with this!” mode and was devoting the mental effort they should have directed to thinking about how best to show the place to thinking about how to spend the money they’d get after getting paid for this job.

    I think they’re just trying to chanenl Jennifer Beal’s place in Flashdance.

    Two baths but only one bathroom photo and it only shows the sink. Hmmmm.
    $600 HOA fees. Does that cover the cost of the radiant heat?

    I can only hope it is more attractive in person than it is reflected here.

    Guest bedroom/home office has no windows to the outside(?).
