WYSIWYG And Coming Soon: 200 Brannan #506
While “are they marketing the home or the furnishings?” is an oft asked question, in this case the answer is yes. Or rather, soon to be asking $1,600,000 fully furnished (by the owners, not staged), art and all.
One bedroom, one and one-half baths, two parking spaces (tandem). One thousand one hundred and twenty-five square feet on the penthouse floor of 200 Brannan. And bonus points (but not necessarily any discount) for naming any of the pieces (furniture or art).
∙ Listing: 200 Brannan #506 (1/1.5) 1,125 square feet - $1,600,000 [MLS]

this is a joke, right? the days of +$1000/psf are over in NYC, much less SF

stunning, amazing, beautiful. BUT... $1,422PSF for a 1/1.5. Ummm is the art and furniture worth the extra 7 or 800k?

The chairs around the table appear to be Kong armchairs by Philippe Starck (list price around $1200 each).

I love that bbq grill in the bedroom! ;)

I think that orange-cloudy painting the bedroom is called "Motivation." I'm pretty sure I saw it hanging in my local Coldwell Banker office.

Smoke some crack, get out a mirror, cut some lines.....are you Fu#()$*ing crazy?!
Maybe 2 years ago. Or if that "G" guy needs another place while remodeling his awful penthouse condo.
Buena Suerte amigos

"I think that orange-cloudy painting the bedroom is called "Motivation.""
OT, but in these trying times maybe a little dark humor helps : Despair, Inc. demotivational artwork
Be sure to check out a few of their posters. Especially appropriate for this week is the one that reads "Government : If you think the problems we create are bad, just wait until you see our solutions."

Bedroom looks great, and so does the fayer. Living room, not so much, at least on the furniture choices.
Posted by: SperryVanNess at September 17, 2008 6:24 PM
That big mirror in the bedroom probably tilts down for that very purpose. In fact all the furniture in this place is pretty much ready-made for cutting lines. I think you could cut lines on just about any surface in that unit, including perhaps that brown couch.

Ha, that might be the best description of a place I've ever heard. Well said pvc.

Great Building, Great Location but horrible price for a 1 bedroom. I'd say this place is worth right around $1mill and you can add in $150k for the furniture unless there is a original Warhol inside.
Did anybody notice the 1 bedroom loft at Oriental Warehouse went into contract at under $1MIL in a week or so?

Those ceilings are driving me nuts. How can anyone live like that?
Posted by: Mole Man at September 17, 2008 7:20 PM
Table in entryway? Anybody know details?
Posted by: SFLooking at September 17, 2008 7:46 PM
Price considerations aside, why would you want to buy a fully furnished condo? Unless it's your first place out of college, it's reasonable to assume you have some furniture already and if you're looking at $1M+ properties, it's also reasonable to assume that your existing furniture is probably nice and it would be a shame to send it off to Goodwill.
If the place was for rent, then the furnishings would make sense.
Posted by: Runner's HIgh at September 17, 2008 8:28 PM
Don't worry, this place will be for rent soon enough.
Posted by: McBravio at September 17, 2008 8:34 PM
Well if you have ~ $1.5M to spend, I think this is a much nicer unit in the same building. With the $100K in savings you can buy slightly more attainable furnishings. http://200brannanview.com/

Great looking place but unless those are six figure paintings the price seems off by at least a couple hundred thousand.

This place looks like a hotel room in Vegas. No, that is not a compliment.
Posted by: NoeValleyJim at September 18, 2008 12:23 AM
NVJ, you are right! I knew this looked familiar. What came to my mind were the rooms at Mandalay Bay in "The Hotel at Mandalay Bay" tower in Las Vegas. They even have the same square cove lighting detail in the suites.
Most shocking of all are that the pillows on the bed are not chopped.

The ceilings remind me of something you would see in a Union Square retail store...

Wow! A condo with a boob job and moussed up hair!
Posted by: vox at September 18, 2008 7:24 AM
I guess they got it decorated, moved in for a night, and left screaming "this is a nightmare".
There's no accounting for taste.
Posted by: irreverent at September 18, 2008 9:29 AM
Freakin crazy!! $1,000+ psf! What a wacko!
I don't even need to comment on the furnishings,,,
Posted by: T-Money at September 18, 2008 10:44 AM
the cloudy orange art piece in the bedroom is Georgia O'Keefe-ish if ya know what i mean.
i think the place is neat-o and i could live there for awhile

Obviously no one ever looks at comps for The Brannan. Units there repeatedly sell for much higher than $1000/ft. #18A (in the 239 tower)just sold for 1,552/ft. Even Watermark 20D just sold for $1,426/ft.
Posted by: anon at September 18, 2008 11:59 AM
Call me tacky, I like it!
BTW - the brannan and 200 brannan are 2 different bldgs.
Posted by: me at September 18, 2008 3:16 PM
I like it too, but it doesn't seem like much of a penthouse, judging by the views.
Posted by: Michael at September 18, 2008 3:29 PM
socketsite - who is the listing agent/office, and when will it be put on the market?
Posted by: Ryan at September 18, 2008 3:41 PM
That's because it's a punt-house, as in FLIP!
Incitatus would look good next to that grill.
Posted by: irreverent at September 18, 2008 6:31 PM
Ryan, it's listed on MLS today. Broker is Sotheby's.
Posted by: j at September 18, 2008 6:47 PM
j thank you eternally yours the listing is fragrance in my nose
Posted by: condokid at September 18, 2008 6:57 PM
Now, that's good taste, compared to that G's place.
Posted by: steve at September 19, 2008 10:31 AM
You don't need to look at the comps on this one. Replacement cost doesn't even touch the 1,000 psf number and I'm sure this won't sale at this price. I guess there are suckers out there buying things at $1,000 sf.
Posted by: T-Money at September 19, 2008 10:50 AM
You don't value this type of residential property by looking at replacement cost.
Posted by: steve at September 19, 2008 2:34 PM
I think that the loft is very nice but OVER PRICED for this market if it were 950,000 it would and I would be a buyer..
Posted by: Mike at October 1, 2008 4:12 PM
I am trying to copy the bedroom and would appreciate it if someone could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any information on where I could purchase any items in that room. Thank you.

Unit 506 still seems to be hanging tough (according to the SF Recorder's website); Unit 504, though, not so good. Bought for $925k in 2005, the auctioneers hammer came down on #504 (1,123 sq.ft) for $780k on December 10. What will the neighbors think? And yes, there was a matter of unpaid HOA monthly assessments...
