49 Moss is one of SOMA’s most dramatic and beautifully built loft residences, hidden discreetly behind a soft industrial facade and tucked away down one of its most quiet and purposely “calmed” streets. The residence is anchored by the ecology-driven and newly minted San Francisco Parks alliance headquarters which serves as an ornamental gateway to the street, adorned with a canopy of modern lanterns over the entry to Moss Street.
A labor of the owner’s love coupled with detailed plan execution created an ever-livable and vast environment, all designed with intimate hideaways pulsed throughout the home. Spanning over 6,500 square feet of beautifully crafted indoor-outdoor living the residence features soaring ceilings, intimate get-away studies, grand entertaining rooms washed in natural light and all punctuated by artisan steel, concrete and laser cut inspired woodwork throughout. The residence pays a modern tribute to 2023 living while intertwining a scalable entertaining environment.
Flowing and flowery descriptions do little justice to the tons of custom-fabricated, laser cut steel stair walls, the perforated wood-drop ceilings and the “big top”-like central rooms washed with light all inviting both private engagements with close friends but begging for gatherings in the hundreds for presentations, fundraisers and lectures…all part and parcel of the owner’s lifestyle and their desire to pass on the incredible warmth, personality and functionality to it’s next owners.
Dual options for a primary suite are offered up including a secluded and wonderfully mysterious, grand scale getaway on the lower level or a voluminous open plan, washed-in-light suite on the upmost level with walkout access to the 1,800 square foot rooftop deck. Whimsy meets functionality all throughout home and is highlighted in part by the cylindrical, glass enclosed vacuum elevator that serves both levels….the ultimate conversation piece and futurists delight. Even the professionally installed “circus point” at the top of the entertaining room is designed for whimsical fun and is rigged to support performing artists, weighty floating art or any imaginable creative application for suspended art installations!
The property features an oversized exercise atrium washed in light on the upper level…an inspiring or peaceful place to exercise and wind down with a private or hosted yoga class or a competitive spin on a Peloton.
In one of many configurations, the home features a primary suite and sitting room, four secondary bedrooms, in-home office and the aforementioned entertaining rooms including a grand, open-air media room just off the living room and intimate kitchen. Artistic details abound in the home with playful tile work, sculptural elements and laser art displays.

Light industry once ruled this quiet backwater district; printing presses, welders, motorcycle repair, with a few dance spots thrown in for good measure. That is until city planners laid out a future more akin to New Your City's SOHO, where galleries and artist lofts might dominate the picture. That vision didn't quite materialize, though big changes remained just over the horizon for this centrally located enclave.
San Francisco had its dot-com explosion in the 90's and suddenly it was hip to live and work in SOMA. 3rd street saw the introduction of a major SF MOMA location, followed by Yerba Buena, and the Jewish Museum. Things very quickly shifted as multimillionaire tech-heads began populating the office spaces and lunchtime eateries, shifting the neighborhood's economic fortunes forever.
Once unremarkable warehouses were transformed into offices that boasted the latest Internet connectivity. Old printing factories now became the city's hottest luxury lofts. Folks began taking note of the Victorian cottages nestled in the modest alleys between the broad thoroughfares. This period also saw the rebirth of the Ferry Building at the end of Market. This classic historic structure morphed quickly into an exceptional food emporium and farmer market location without rival. SOMA remains today an urban district where dreams are made, in a comfortable setting unlike any other. And all within biking or walking distance.
