Before And After Atop Nob Hill (And Reduced)
When purchased for $945,000 in 2010, unit #902 atop the Francesca at 850 Powell Street looked rather different than it does now (above). The dining room and kitchen before:
And an iron and walnut bar, rather than wall, now divides the two.
Listed for $2,300,000 this past March, the price for the 1,912 square foot Nob Hill condo has been reduced to $1,995,000. And yes, the rest of the condo has been remodeled as well.

I don't know what the thought process was behind that thing on the wall of the living room. More importantly I am not sure where I would find enough tasteful curios to fill it.

And only $1,600 in monthly HOAs, plus $235 for leased parking, to live on a steep hill on the Chinatown border. What a bargain. Prospective buyers should not feel dejected if they don't win this gem in what is sure to be a bidding frenzy: there are two other units listed in the building, including the one next door.
I'm surprised the remodel left the ceiling intact. Are those ridges structural?
Last question: does anyone actually live here? Or is this just an overpriced hotel for people too rich to stay at regular hotels when they occasionally visit SF?

I like it but not sure why they killed the working fireplace and not liking the dangling light balls. Some cool design elements but also some things that look ill thought out. Odd staging furniture in the bedrooms.

Agree on the dangling balls and the wall unit. Overkill. Did someone have leftover ideas from a Designer Showcase home?

I like the dangling light balls. But I don't care for the porcupine light above the dining table. I think the stager ran out of steam when they got to the 2nd bedroom.

Love the ceilings, and am glad they kept them. Only the views compete with the ceiling for your attention.

I think you left out the "after" kitchen photo. I found it on the listing site -- either the kitchen or an arctic snowdrift, not sure which.
