It Has HOW MANY Bedrooms??

There aren’t that many homes with over 8,000 finished square feet, period.

So, when you run across a home that size, you expect it to have 6, 7, or even more Bedrooms.

How can the St. Anthony Park single-family home pictured above have that much space, and only have 2(!) Bedrooms?

The Listing “Remarks” section on MLS clears up the confusion:

Mixed use Zoned OS1. Live and Work from the same location. 60×40 Warehouse with 12ft door height, has attached office/reception and 3/4 bath. 2085 Sq. Ft of office space w/commercial kitchen. 3000 Sq. Ft. of living space feels like a downtown loft.

Sounds good to me.

Now, THAT’S Unique

The only question is whether there’s demand for a space that “feels like a downtown loft” that¬† . . . isn’t downtown.

In fact, the listing history suggests that that may be the issue (or at least, one of them):¬† the property was originally listed as “Commercial/Mixed” in June, 2011 at $899,000.

The property type was changed to “Single Family” last February, and the asking price is now $795,000.
