Open House Obsession: Sublime Loft At 300 Beale Street, $2.7MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 300 Beale Street #603, South Beach
When: Sunday March 26 from 2:00pm-4:00pm
What: A sophisticated remodel of a late 90’s loft conversion, done over a decade ago by the acclaimed San Francisco architectural firm Aidlin Darling, and still as warm and of-the-moment as when it was finished. The 2-level unit is currently configured as a 1-bed, 2.5-bath, the upper, entry level is an immense great room opening to a terrace, while downstairs is a library/office/media room and the master suite.
Instead of just stacking the TV and fireplace, the architects gave each a distinct horizontal mass. below. Floors are polished concrete.
The kitchen cabinets and appliances have their own distinct massing as well. We’d rather have art than overhead cabinets.
Connecting the two levels, a maple stairway sheathed in acid-etched glass. The floors on this level are maple as well.
Downstairs, the library/office/media room transforms itself as needed, with a screen and projection system dropping down from the ceiling.
Below, the master suite.
More: On the practical side, this exquisite condo comes with a washer/dryer, two deeded parking spaces and storage units. Check out the outstanding dedicated site for additional information, a video, and floor plans.
