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 $2,500/month. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ Under budget at $2450 is this very tiny but absolutely adorable and extremely quintessential San Francisco studio in the Inner Richmond. It clocks in at 350 square feet, and has its very own rooftop deck. While small, the kitchen has all the essentials like a two small refrigerators and an espresso machine. Another highlight is the gorgeous bathroom, which features a large window and a claw foot tub. There's (free) laundry in the building but no parking.
↑ Nestled into one of Nob Hill's hidden staircase alleys is 29 Joice, where $2495 will get you your very own one bedroom apartment. The good news: The apartment comes fully furnished! The bad news: The apartment comes fully furnished. It's a top floor corner unit in a fabulous location. There's laundry in the building but unfortunately no pets and no parking.
↑ In Cow Hollow, a studio with a generous layout can be had for $2,525/month. The bedroom/main room has four windows, three of which are a bay window, and is basically 18' x 14.' The main living area is also separated by a wall from the large kitchen and dining area. Additionally, there's a large foyer and hallway and a bathroom with a window. No pets, no parking, no laundry.
↑ If space is what you require than this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Portola is your best beat for $2500 a month. It's two levels and has its own garage. The recently remodeled kitchen is fab. There's no word on pets, but it is a single-family home in a residential neighborhood so it's worth checking out if you live with canines or felines.
↑ And finally, if you want the Central Richmond as your home you can get a 850-square-foot two bedroom that's completely lacking in character but has parking for one car. It's $2500 per month, and pets aren't allowed.
