The Oh So Sexy Showers Of 188 South Park #7 ReturnNovember 2, 2009
As we wrote about 188 South Park #7 when the developer’s unit was listed for $1,995,000 in 2006:
We’re suckers for a luxurious shower (and doubly so when it’s outside). So you can imagine our glee when we first noticed the five shower heads (including two separately controlled rain-heads and a steam function) in the his & her shower at 188 South Park #7, and then our surprise when we walked upstairs to discover an outdoor shower (with unobstructed views of the city). Now that’s luxury.
As always, please don’t forget to invite us to the housewarming (but be forewarned, we’re bringing towels…).
We never did get invited to that housewarming. Then again, it didn’t sell (refinanced instead). We now have another chance, however, as it’s back on the market and asking $1,750,000. We’re packing the towels now.

Too bad that after they purchased all those expensive, huge kitchen appliances they had no money or space left for cabinets.
Cool, you could take showers outside like Dante…
I think it would have been better for the neighborhood if the outdoor shower was located on the first floor of the building!
IMHO, this is probably the best loft in SOMA. Jeff knows what he’s doing.
Nothing says luxury like a built-in crockpot!
That outdoor shower belongs in southern CA not San Francisco. Just looking at it makes me feel goose bumps.
And I’ll raise you 2 chicks:
“…five shower heads (including two separately controlled rain-heads and a steam function)…” WTF?
Don’t you know there’s a water crisis in Cali-for-nee-ya?! I am personally going to do what I can to make this illegal.
I looked at the lower unit back in 2005. They are beautifully built. As much as I love the workmanship, I cannot see paying this price for a view of the Shell Station.
I have to agree with loftlover, the indoor details look amazing, the location corner of S. Park and 3rd across from the gas station not so much. I also have to say the outdoor shower in SF seems really silly.
I’ve been puzzling over the outdoor shower too. Then it hit me – perfect for washing the dog!
Maybe in this part of town outdoor showers won’t see much use. But travel to the far west side and a practical reason comes into view : Pacific surf.
A friend of mine who’s an avid surfer lives within quick striking distance once the surf is up. He’s got an outdoor shower installed in his back yard so he can desalinate after the session.
Granted, he’s showering in a wet suit though.
Previous owner had a hot tub up there, maybe?
The MLS listing for 188 South Park #7 has been withdrawn from the market.
Back on the market eight days later with a brand new listing (but without the unit number), still asking $1,750,000.
See what a 30% drop in expectations can do! Sold for 1.4.
Only 51 months on the market! Sounds like he knew what he was doing all right.
That’s a lotta holding costs.
