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 $3,200/month. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ This lovely two bedroom flat on Lyon Street in the Panhandle will run you $3,195 per month. Highlights include gleaming hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, ornate architectural detailing throughout, and a window in the bathroom (don't get it for granted, people). Coin operated laundry is on site and there is a strict NO DOGS but cats are OK policy. Parking isn't included.
↑ $3150 gets you an uninspiring 813 square foot apartment with a private balcony in Lower Pac Heights' Cathedral Hill Plaza. The one bedroom is on the 11th floor and has views to the west. Building amenities like access to the health club with two tennis courts will run you an additional $45 per month, and parking will run you $275 per month. There's a 24-hour doorman. Pets are allowed.
↑This funky yet charming two bedroom apartmentin Nob Hill clocks in at 900 square feet and is asking $3,195. It's located in the rear building on a two building lot, which means you're not going to be up close and personal with the cable car that runs directly outside the main property. The apartment's lacking in the pretty kitchen and bathroom department, but has solid bones like hardwood floors throughout and a lot of windows. No pets, parking, or laundry.
↑If space is what you desire than your best bet is to head to the outer avenues, where $3,150 a month gets you a three bedroom flat in Central Richmond. The flat is completely carpeted, but it does have a working fireplace in the living room, a formal dining room, split bathroom, and a decent backyard in the back. There's no mention of parking or pets.
↑Finally, $3,200 nabs you a completely adorable top floor two bedroom flat in the Castro. It's at 17th Street and Ord, so the house place has views galore of the city. Other highlights include victorian details throughout, decorative fireplace, dishwasher in the kitchen, and a washer and dryer in the unit. Cats OK, no dogs.
