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: $3,000.
↑ In Lower Pac Heights, at the bustling corner of California and Fillmore, this one-bedroom can be yours for $2,995/month. It's jam-packed with Victorian architectural charm, like tall ceilings, moldings galore, French doors to separate the double parlor (that's actually the bedroom), and of course two nonworking fireplaces. The hardwood floors are gleaming, the kitchen is crummy, and the bathroom has a giant window. Cats will be considered but unfortunately no dogs are allowed. Laundry's in the building and there's no mention of parking.
↑ Described in the listing as the "Princess of the Panhandle, the Beauty of Broderick," this perfectly fine one-bedroom in the Upper Haight is currently listed for $2,995/month. While it's not covered in precious gems and technically has no ties to royalty, it was recently remodeled and got a nice stainless steel fridge in the kitchen. Parking's "available upon request," and there's no mention of laundry or pets.
↑ A very charming one-bedroom on the top floor of a small residential building on Chestnut Street in the Marina just listed for $3,000/month. We're especially fond of the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows in the main living area as well as the location's close proximity to Moscone Recreation Center and Fort Mason. Parking's available for $295/month, no pets, and there's no mention of laundry.
↑ Brand-new construction in Western Addition means you can get a never-lived-in one-bedroom for $2,950/month. It's got all the bells and whistles associated with new construction: We're talking dishwasher, laundry, microwave, disposal … the list goes on. There's also a common roof up top and parking's included.
↑ One of the more unusual properties we've ever run across: This is an indoor/outdoor small cottage at the back of a larger building. It's in Pacific Heights and is available for $2,995/month. If the expansive backyard isn't quite big enough for you, Alta Plaza Park is literally across the street. No mention of pets or laundry, but the listing does say street parking only.
