HISTORY & LOCATION
This unique residence was designed to provide a tranquil space for the urban dweller. A haven which has undergone many transformations, water records for this home date back to 1868 and describe it as a two unit residence, commercial space and most recently a single family dwelling. 71 Langton was represented in the acclaimed exhibition and book South of Market by Janet Delaney. Photos of the property and others on Langton can still be seen on her website. In 1998 the property was seismically upgraded with steel beams that create a loft-like living experience. There are multiple outdoor and indoor areas to live, work and relax. The home is set on a beautiful tree lined street in the heart of SoMa. It is in close proximity to many highly rated restaurants and cafes and shopping centers, and is near the Civic Center, opera house, theaters and all the exciting nightlife SoMa is known for.
Nearly 2200 square feet of open living space perfectly suited for those with a creative mind. A custom mosaic tiled entry leads up to the huge open living room with wood burning fireplace and refinished parquet floors. Large master suite on this level features two custom walk in closets, office area and a newly rebuilt deck overlooking the lush private garden. Master bathroom has spa tub, stone countertops, cork flooring and new carpet. A dramatic spiral staircase leads both to the main level and the rooftop terrace with city skyline views.
Features of the custom kitchen include poured concrete counters, train station pendant lighting, movable center island, refinished hardwood floors and maple cabinetry with intricate detailing. The dining area can easily seat a party of ten and includes a built in china cabinet. Well suited for indoor-outdoor entertaining, the home is fit with a large patio and garden directly off the kitchen. There is also a full bath with slate floors and optional office nook in this area. Off the kitchen is access to the legal second bedroom which is currently utilized as a den and makes an excellent guest or media room.
There is a large, serene private garden off the main level with bougainvillea, honeysuckle, wisteria, jasmine and an avocado tree. This one-of-a-kind large private outdoor space is perfect for entertaining or as a respite from city life.
