Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various San Francisco neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $6,000.
↑ Think six grand a month is going to rent you your very own home, complete with a backyard and a garage? Not in South Beach, which is one of San Francisco's most expensive neighborhoods to live and rent in. That said, this 1,461-square-foot brick-and-timber conversion loft at David Baker's 355 Bryant Street is absolutely gorgeous, and it has cool features like a private roof deck. There's parking, but no mention of laundry or a pets policy. It'll run you $5,995/month.
↑ This remodeled two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in Noe Valley will cost you $5,950/month. It has curb appeal and an A+ location on Dolores Street, so if location is what you desire then this is a great pad. It's an upper-level flat that was recently remodeled from top to bottom with "all high end finishes," so there's that. There's also one-car parking, in-unit laundry, and a private roof deck. Small pets are negotiable with references and an additional deposit.
↑ Do you and three friends really want to live in an Italianate Victorian that's listed on the National Registry of Historical Landmarks? Then this four-bedroom, one-point-five-bath flat in the Western Addition is for you. Oh, and you're going to need $6,000 per month to rent it. There's laundry, but no mention of parking or pets.
↑ What this Lower Haight apartment lacks in curb appeal it makes up for in architectural fancifulness and size. It's a three-bedroom flat with two bathrooms, and it's available for $5950/month. It's also one block from Alamo Square, so you'll have a nice suntan all year round. There's also in-unit laundry, one-car parking, and lots of additional storage. We should mention that the fireplaces (yes, plural) all work. Small pets are negotiable with an additional deposit.
↑ If you're a well-heeled renter looking for seriously posh digs, then this two-bedroom apartment in Nob Hill is your best bet. $6,000/month gets you two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and all are very prim and proper. The listing also wants to make it really clear that "NO COIN LAUNDRY OR SHARED FACILITIES," but there is laundry in-unit. Other highlights include a large and fabulous (and potentially shared) backyard. Parking is available for an additional cost and sorry, no pets allowed.
