Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour San Francisco's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. This week, we're investigating apartments listed for $5,000/month. Really, you should be able to get everything you could ever want for this amount. So dream big, and tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ In the Castro, this 2-bed, 1-bath single family home is asking $4,900/month. It features view terraces galore, a modern kitchen, and loads of period charm with Spanish flair. The garage has space for 2-car tandem parking, and includes a washer and dryer. The only drawback is the single bathroom - it's adjacent to the master, but must be shared by the second bedroom.
↑ In Potrero Hill, this 2-bed, 2-bath top floor condo is asking $4,995/month. The rooms are spacious, there's a fireplace in the living room, and the kitchen is modern. The unit is part of a two-unit building with a shared back yard. Parking for one car and pets are negotiable.
↑ In Cow Hollow, this 1-bed, 1-bath cottage-style back house is asking $4,900/month. Very private with cute period detailing. The kitchen isn't anything special, though. It looks like there's parking but the listing doesn't specify. We guess location really does cost this much, nowadays.
↑ In Bernal Heights, this 3-bed, 2-bath Victorian is asking $4,895/month. The main floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom, along with the kitchen, dining room, den, laundry room, and access to the backyard. The upper floor houses the master bed and bath, along with a nursery/office bonus room. Plus, there's lots of faux-finishing.
↑ In Duboce Triangle, this tri-level 2-bed, 2-bath condo is asking $4,950/month. The unit is ultra-modern, with an open-plan kitchen and living room on the main floor, along with a bedroom in the back. The lower floor has a bedroom with built-in closets, while the upper floor has a carpeted open space, perhaps for an office. Washer/dryer in the unit and pets are negotiable with an extra deposit. No info about parking, though.
