I Want This San Francisco Condo With Art Deco Details: $4.8M

How would you like the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art as your neighbor? Do you love the 1920's art deco look?

This unique San Francisco condo has a great design back story. The St. Regis Residences was inspired by the nearby architectural gem that is the 1924 Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Building.

Skip to modern day. Located in the fashionable SOMA area of San Francisco -- with a slew of museums in close proximity -- this residence (built in 2005) is like a work of art in itself. It features well-appointed finishes and custom furnishings. Contrast that with a collection of antiques and accessories from vintage collections worldwide that adorn the premises, and you got a homestead worthy of being put on display.

Located at 188 Minna St., and going for a price tag of $4,800,000, this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom condo has 2,522 square feet of pure luxury. Living here sounds like a throwback to the posh days of F. Scott Fitzgerald as your new St. Regis Residence comes complete with such features as a grand foyer with coffered ceilings and a large living/dining room with beautiful panoramic view of the city of San Francisco and its beloved bay. Imagine dining to that every night!

Here's what gets me about this place; the bathroom has a large tub that also has an incredible view of the city (not to mention a marble shower). Can you think of anything more relaxing? And not to name drop but the entire condo is highlighted by rare, imported, lacquered woods from Mozambique and custom, nickel-plated pulls and accessories in the tradition of Streamline Moderne, this Metropolitan Floor Plan expands out to create an open feel to the space.

This is a gorgeous condo but the $4.8 price tag a bit steep for this side of town. (Condos in the St. Regis rent for roughly $10,000 a month.) Two-bedroom condos around the same area are being offered for $2.5 million, so you might want to spend some time negotiating with the owner.
