Remember the Alamo (Square) When Looking for a Rental

New, 3 comments

It's quite clear that the San Francisco rental market is hot, hot, hot right now, so here at Curbed we're going to bring you a bevy of rental properties each week for your perusal -- one in each price range for budget, middle-of-the-road, and luxury. Today we showcase apartments near Alamo Square Park -- where Painted Ladies and tourists abound.


Budget: This cute little studio on Fillmore Street is $1,600 per month. It has lovely hardwood floors and plenty of storage, and the building itself also has laundry. You're just a block from the park while being right between Hayes Valley and the Lower Haight. It looks to be on a lower floor, but that means you get the patio all to yourself -- no sharesies with the neighbors! Maybe you can make it your living room and think of this as a modified one bedroom. [craigslist]


Middle of the Road: This one-bedroom apartment is $2,295 per month, and is a block and a half from the park. The unit is at the back of the building, so you shouldn't get noise from McAllister Street, and it even looks like the living room has a view of someone else's back garden. Either way, there's lots of light, and it looks crisp and clean. Parking is available for another $200, but there's no word on laundry. We personally love the double doors leading to the bedroom -- you may never shut them -- but we that may be an issue if you've got laundry piling up at the foot of your bed. [craigslist]


Luxury: A few blocks east on McAllister, we have this top-floor 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment for $3,950 per month. It caught our eye with cool finishes, like the glass tile in the updated kitchen. The living room looks to be a little on the narrow side, but has a great brick fireplace (likely non-functioning) and a great bow window. We do love that the kitchen is open to the dining room, which is great for entertaining. The building itself allows pets, and includes shared laundry and outdoor space, though the listing is mum on parking. [craigslist]
