4053 Harlan Street, Unit 204
1+BR, 1 BA, loft
Coming April 1, 2018
The storied Besler building in Emeryville is one of the first warehouse conversions in the Bay Area. It was converted to units in the 1970s from a historic building in which steam engines were designed and fabricated. Exposed brick, solid concrete floors, giant concrete pillars, dramatic floor-to-ceiling casement windows -- this is the real deal, a true loft experience in a true live-work building.
With artists and craftspeople as your neighbors, you’ll find surprising peace and quiet in which to work, create, or just live. There are no shared studs in the walls and ceilings, so you won’t hear a thing between units. The main space is soaring and open with 20-foot high ceilings. A bedroom, loft work room and storage area are tucked away. The light is spectacular from the south-facing windows, creating warmth all winter long without turning on the heat.
Each unit is unique, showcasing owners’ individual build-outs and upgrades over the years. The extraordinary kitchen in Unit 204 has concrete countertops, maple cabinets, and top-shelf appliances – a commercial Wolf range with grill, Miele dishwasher, Bosch oven, and Subzero Refrigerator are ready for a home chef, a caterer, or even an expert at take-out. Great-looking and functional, the space and quality stand ready to be put to any test you can throw at it.
The giant freight elevator, off-street parking, main entry security system, and continuous camera surveillance complete this enticing package, all wrapped up in a convenient central location near Bart, SF bus line, Emery-Go-Round, Pixar, Bay Street and more.

Featured in the 2017 East Bay AIA Home Tour, this breathtaking, one-of-a-kind home is a soaring, modern, sunny retreat in the heart of Westbrae. A notable local architect designed the progressive, green-energy dream house with walls of glass, earthy materials, elegant finishes, drought-friendly landscaping, and solar power. Venetian plaster, concrete, bamboo, blackened steel, and reclaimed wood give the home an industrial-chic vibe, while maintaining the architect’s sustainability imperative. A transparent cat-walk is a highlight of every guest’s first visit. Views of Mt. Tamalpais, Golden Gate Bridge, and Berkeley hills are framed from several windows, and the rooftop deck offers 360-degree views of the East Bay and beyond.
