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 in the Tendernob, nestled right in between the Tenderloin and Nob Hill, boasting cheaper rents and less gritty streets.
Budget: This adorable little studio on Bush and Mason will set you back $1,650 per month, but you get a lot more for your money here than in other neighborhoods. For starters, it's on the top floor (no stomping neighbors waking you in up in the middle of the night) and it has beautiful hardwood floors. There looks to be several closets, including a walk-in, and the building has laundry but not parking. [craigslist]
Middle of the Road: If you're looking to graduate from a studio but want to stay in the hood, this top-floor 1-bedroom on Pine and Leavenworth is for you. It's $2,250 a month, and has good stuff like cool built-ins and an updated kitchen. We dig this location so close to the border of Nob Hill -- and it would be great for anyone working at St. Francis Hospital down the street. Though hospital-adjacency is good just if you're accident-prone as well. [craigslist]
Luxury: Now for the fancy stuff, down the hill a block to Sutter and Leavenworth. For $5,900 a month you can grab this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom top floor flat. The flat itself is all hardwood and and big bright windows -- we love the light wood in the kitchen (though it looks on the small side for such a high-end flat), and the big fireplace in the living room. There's a true master bedroom, which also has an attached office, and two other bedrooms. Nothing's been left out -- there's a washer and dryer in the unit, storage is included, and so is a two car garage. There's even a common backyard space -- time to meet your new neighbors!
