461 2nd St. #457 T South BeachSold Price: $2,350,000
This luxury 2-bedroom condo in the coveted Clocktower building has it all! A million dollar renovation designed by Edmonds + Lee Architects was recently completed with high-end finishes and extreme attention to detail creating a space that is beyond impressive.
As you enter the loft, a custom steel and glass floating staircase foreshadows the modern yet warm renovation that lies ahead. A grand living area features soaring ceilings, a wall of windows and exposed concrete that remind you of original days of this building when it housed the Schmidt Lithograph Corporation. As the story goes, the City planned to demolish the building in the 30’s when they were building the Bay Bridge. Schmidt threatened to move his company out of the City, the City relented and the Clocktower stayed.
A gorgeous dream kitchen includes fully custom Sozo Studio cabinetry and a custom neolith marble island that integrates into a 12 foot black walnut dining table and breakfast nook. High-end appliances include a Miele induction cooktop and oven, Liebherr refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, Grohe fixtures, and a 99-bottle wine refrigerator. An incredible oversized custom copper chandelier was designed by a local SF artist.
The living area sits on a beautiful oak platform and includes a custom wood wall treatment with a custom inset for a television. This south-facing room gets an enormous amount of natural light throughout the day.
On this same level, a custom sliding wood barndoor leads to the guest room/den. A beautiful guest full bathroom is also on this level.
Up the glass and steel staircase is the master suite with a gorgeous walk-in closet with lighted storage in the Sozo Studio cabinetry. The master bathroom features a double vanity, heated floors, custom tilework and a huge walk-in steam shower.
This truly is a unique opportunity to own the best of South Beach loft living. The Clocktower’s history combines with a meticulous renovation to create something unique and impressive. Beyond impressive.
