1 Rausch Street #D Living

With a nearly 18-foot ceiling, there’s room to play within the 1,266 square foot unit #D at 1 Rausch Street, one of eight units within the Toy Factory Lofts building which was converted to condos in 1997.

And there’s the height to add a moveable steel mezzanine on wheels designed by Kyle Reicher, the elevated floor space of which isn’t included in the official square footage of the condo.

And while the kitchen below the bedroom is contemporary, the adjacent lower bath is outfitted with a throwback claw-foot tub surrounded by polished concrete surfaces and industrial steel accents.

Purchased for $380,000 in 1998, after its conversion but prior to being completely remodeled, 1 Rausch Street #D is now on the market for the requested price of $1,040,000.

    Seems to me the ‘movable loft’ could be a huge issue in an earthquake. Otherwise pretty neat idea.

      With a couple of modifications at the base of the loft, they could claim that it’s actually earthquake safe because it’s a friction pendulum damper.

    I find that bath to be rather creepy.

    With those ceiling hooks, it’s the perfect home abattoir.

    Creepy bathroom. Looks like a torture/execution chamber.

    The little head pillow on the tub indicates it’s probably a great place to relax, despite what others see as a creepy ambiance.

    UPDATE: The sale of 1 Rausch Street #D has closed escrow “at asking” with a reported contract price of $1.04 million.
