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. This week we took a look north of the Panhandle, where you'll find easy access to the park, prime viewing (and judging) spots for Bay to Breakers, and daily arguments over what, exactly, the neighborhood should be called.
Studio: This studio for $2,295 is in the Anza Vista part of Western Addition, or lovingly referred to recently as "North of North of the Panhandle." The unit has hardwood floors and gets lots of light, and the posting boasts of parking, laundry, and an elevator. You're also close enough to Trader Joe's that you can avoid its parking disaster and just walk your Puffins home. [zumper]
One Bedroom: While the price makes us flinch at $2,850, this one bedroom is absolutely gorgeous with great period details and built-ins. Just check out that working fireplace and cute little breakfast bar! It's south-facing, which means great light and views of Sutro (if you're into that, but you're also probably at the back of the building, so you'll get access to the 5-Fulton without any of that pesky Muni noise. Pint-sized cats and dogs are accepted, but you'll have to keep them on a diet to stay under 12 pounds. [craigslist]
Two bedroom: Sure, it's currently only offered as a six-month lease, but this full Victorian on Lyon at McAllister may be well-worth moving your stuff multiple times. For $3,200 you'll get 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a den and a double parlor. This should give you plenty of space to stretch out and get comfortable. We are loving all the stained glass, the beautiful fireplaces, and the lovely hardwood floors. There's word of a garden out back, so make sure to entertain if you've only got six months here.
