↑ In Ashbury Heights, this renovated junior one bedroom is asking $2,650/month. It's on the top floor of a gorgeous Edwardian, and probably requires a decent level of cardio fitness to access on a day-to-day basis. The living space boasts beautiful views (albeit from small windows) and a wood-burning fireplace. The bedroom is tiny and the bathroom is basically a wet room. Cat friendly; no parking.
↑ In the Richmond, the good news is that you can get a two bedroom for $2,695/month. The bad news is that it involves dingy carpet and one room with walls painted a shade of pink that would probably upset even your grandmother. Consolation: there's plenty of extra space, including a dining and sun room.
↑ In Russian Hill, this small one bedroom is asking $2,700/month. It's on the 4th floor of an elevator building, with "nice views." The kitchen is janky but the living room has a beautiful beamed ceiling and fireplace. Hardwood throughout and all utilities are included in the rent.
↑ In Hayes Valley, this one bedroom is asking $2,600/month. It's located in the back of the building and has almost no windows, so it should be quiet. There's room for a tiny table in the kitchen, which also has a breakfast bar. The living and bedrooms are also tiny. But Blue Bottle is right out the back door, so that's something.
