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: $2,400.
↑ At $2,395/month, just five dollars under budget, this studio atop Nob Hill is a worth a look. It has large windows, hardwood floors, reasonably well delineated living areas, and two full closets off the bed nook. The kitchen is cramped and a tad dated, but nevertheless features a full gas range and a dishwasher. Cats are permitted with a $250 pet deposit, but no dogs are allowed in the building.
↑ This garden-facing studio in the Marina clocks in at exactly $2,400/month. The well-appointed 500-square-foot space has been completely remodeled, and features ample amounts of natural light as well as a nice set of built-ins in the main living area. What it lacks in size, it makes up for with a prime location just a block and a half from Marina Green. Unfortunately, pets are not welcome.
↑ The largest and newest unit on our list is also furthest from downtown. This 805-square-foot one-bedroom in the Bayview's Candlestick Point condo development is right on budget, and comes with a host of amenities and a view of the bay. The apartment has an open-plan living room, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a double vanity in the bathroom. There's even an in-unit washer-dryer, a rarity in this price range. It also comes with parking, and access to the building's gym. Plus, this place looks to be 100 percent pet friendly.
↑ Just off Dolores Park in Eureka Valley, this recently updated studio will set you back $2,350/month. The apartment has an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and hardwood floors throughout. Despite being a stone's throw from the J Church, this studio comes with parking. Neither cats nor dogs are allowed. The living space here isn't huge, but large windows looking out over Dolores Park and San Francisco's skyline are a definite bonus.
↑ Coming in under budget at $2,350/month, this one-bedroom in the Inner Sunset is on the second floor of an Edwardian house. It's two blocks south of Golden Gate Park and comes with Internet, cable, and laundry included. You'll need to find parking on the street, but there looks to be a sizable deck, and the brick fireplace is pretty sweet, though no word on whether it's usable. No mention of pets.
