A historic clock tower penthouse apartment in San Francisco is available for $8.5 million.
For anyone who ever watched Peter Pan as a kid, living in a clock tower has probably always been a pipe dream. Thanks to the historic clock tower in the SoMa neighborhood of San Francisco, that dream may soon become a reality. Built 94 years ago, the tower was originally an addition to a factory complex that spans two full blocks at Second and Bryant Street. In 1993, the Clock Tower Building, located at 461 Second Street was renovated into a 127 loft complex designed by David Baker.

The penthouse has now hit the market for the first time in 23 years, and it probably won’t last long. The apartment spans 3,000 square feet, and features two bedrooms, two baths, modern kitchen and living room with glass-enclosed fireplace, as well as exposed brick walls, and cathedral ceilings with industrial beams. There is also a wrap-around deck, and of course, exclusive access to the three floors rising into the tower.
This penthouse is a part of the history of San Francisco Bay, so if you feel like owning a part of the past, you had better make an offer post haste!via ]
