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 decided that people have probably had enough with the "humanity" that shows up in parks on sunny days, so we looked for rentals with roof decks. Get out your sunblock, fire up the BBQ, and prepare to meet your neighbors.
Marina: Why go walk across the street to Fort Mason when you could lounge on your roof deck at this one bedroom for $2,900 in the Marina? For one, we love that they neglected to tidy up the deck chairs after a gust must have knocked them over -- looks like a wild night was had by all. The unit itself is very nice with hardwood floors throughout and lots of light. Parking is available for extra, and there's a separate back patio for grilling so that the sunbathers don't need to worry about smelling like ribs. [craigslist]
Marina: We are so loving this Deco-fied one bedroom near Little Marina Green for $2,995. Sure, that's on the high side for a one-bedroom, but you get really great vintage details and a great roof deck, sure to be used on these great summer days and during America's Cup. There's a closet big enough to be an office, a dishwasher in the kitchen, and a built-in china cabinet for the dining room. This one checks all the boxes for us. Parking is available for an extra $295 per month, laundry is in the building. [craigslist]
Nob Hill: This Nob Hill one bedroom gets you high above the hubbub to really take advantage of views on its roof deck for $3,050 per month. The unit itself was somewhat recently renovated, with a narrow but open and well-appointed kitchen and great features: a fireplace, separate shower and tub, and in-unit laundry. [craigslist]
