Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour San Francisco's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. This week, we're investigating apartments listed for $3,900/month. Which will win out - WalkScore, windows, or space? You tell us which lease you'd sign.
In Lower Nob Hill, this corner 2-bed, 2-bath is asking $3,900/month. The building itself is pretty ugly, but the unit has giant loft-style windows all around - even in the kitchen. Additional features include 1000 square feet of space, wood floors throughout, closets with built-ins in both bedrooms, and a small balcony accessible from the living room and master. There's also 1 designated parking spot, private storage space, and coin-operated on-site laundry. No pets, and it's not available until Feb.
In Cow Hollow, this 2-bed, 1-bath is asking $3,900/month. It's got a nice-sized living room with a corner fireplace and big picture windows, an eat-in kitchen, and a private laundry room. The bedrooms are carpeted and located at the back of the unit (for minimal street noise). No pets and no parking, but Union Street is close, so there's plenty to walk to.
In Potrero Hill, this Edwardian 2-bed, 1-bath is asking $3,950/month. It has air conditioning and central heat, but the kitchen is sadly outdated - even dilapidated. There is garden access and in-unit laundry, though - trade-off?
In Pacific Heights, this 2-bed, 1-bath is asking $3,895/month. Located 1 block from Lafayette Park, it's got a small renovated kitchen, in-unit laundry, hardwood throughout, and it's pet-friendly. Parking is available for extra.
