As an experienced luxury Realtor, I am the appointed representive for 200 Brannan through our Vanguard Properties website and will keep you informed of the latest offerings.  I will arrange your private showing or provide accurate comparables and comparisons for your home sale at 200 Brannan.

I view every home with the idea in mind of who the buyer might be, and ask, “Would I live there myself”? I can give a definite “Yes”, to the current offering of penthouse Unit 506 and easily picture a sophisticated couple, business bachelor or bachelorette, design or art world professional, luxury pied-a-terre seeker, or a young urban dweller making this prestigious offering their home.

Greeted at the door by the engaging door man, Roberto, one immediately feels secure and that they are entering an exclusive, service oriented, 5 star living experience, from the atrium entry, to the exquisitely chosen neutral palette on the walls of the quiet, plushly carpeted hallways. Dotting those walls are custom art and photographs that are finished with sophisticated lighting; which guide you past the serene green bamboo ground floor courtyard and on to the multiple elevators that bring you closest to your home.


The Fitness Center and Recreation Room (where a party was in progress) are accessed from just beyond the first floor via short sweeping stair or by elevator from above. Floors 1–4 offer loft style homes while the fifth floor, the penthouse floor, features unique and specialized luxury 1 and 2 bedroom floor plans. The Fifth floor provides exclusive access to owners only. Included in the buildings amenities are a full service concierge, 24 hour security plus a 2 level in-house parking garage and storage privileges nearby.

Currently offered for $1,250,000., #506 is a Manhattan Style home that has been upgraded beautifully and seamlessly by the current owner. HOA fee is $635 and includes all amenities. Each room has a distinct character and in this offering, the furnishings and accessories may be available for inclusion in the purchase, according to listing agent for this particular home, James Testa, Paragon Properties. Each piece of hand selected furntiure and art adds to the the impeccable design element of the space.

20120415-192728.jpgBeautifully laid out, the elegant floor plan for this 1 Bedroom, 1 and 1/2 bath spacious home features a stunning well lit granite Chef’s kitchen with Sub Zero and Viking appliances, plus wine fridge and breakfast bar/desk area with built-in custom cabinetry. The Open Living/Dining provides access to your exclusive deck/patio with room for lounging and greenery that bring the outside in.


Enjoy a fireplace that is a work of art and architectural finishes that blend the homes upscale design. Wired for sound, the home includes customizeable one-push upgraded lighting allowing you to adjust the mood for each space.


The roomy Master Suite includes its’ sprawling master bath with custom high-end cabinetry echoed throughout the unit that adds to the modern functionality. In unit laundry is housed in a large storage closet that blends, so that I nearly missed it. The warm rich beautifully finished color pallette of the walls changes slightly by tones to add to the rambling designer feel of the home. Even the 1/2 bath is impressive. The home includes upgraded finishes and fixtures throughout that must be seen as even the photos don’t demonstrate how luxurious this home is. Included are 2 deeded parking spaces, an extra perk for this home and for city living.

This impressive penthouse at 200 Brannan was jointly designed by MBH and Kwan Henmi Architects and built by Lennar Corp. in 2004. It is what you would expect from impressive new construction combined with concrete warehouse which was historically a 100 year old salami factory and speaks to San Francisco’s urban luxury full service condominium living.
