Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a regular column exploring what you can rent for a set dollar amount in different neighborhoods. Today, we present rentals of every possible size and layout, from five bedrooms down to two. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out.Today's price: $6,000.
↑ Behold this top-level, 1,400-square-foot, three bedroom flat in an Haight Ashbury Edwardian (on Ashbury Street no less!) for $5,800/month, right next to Buena Vista Park. The building is at least 116 years old and features period touches like a clawfoot tub and wood-burning fireplaces in seemingly every room. The bathrooms were mercifully remodeled to include heated floors for those chilly Haight mornings. This is our first offering to allow pets, with a happily pro-dog policy. (Good boy.)
↑ If you're looking for only two bedrooms for $5,900/month, you could end up in a house in Cow Hollow near Laguna and Filbert. It comes with a swanky rooftop patio and multi-tiered deck, with multiple French doors leading out to a quaintly well-manicured rectangle of backyard. Given the neighborhood, the Golden Gate Bridge views are standard. Notice as you make your way through the listings that the smaller your $6,000 San Francisco home gets, the more pet friendly it becomes; both cats and dogs are free to romp here.
↑ This jam-packed five bed, four bath house in the Sunset is the cheapest five-bedroom house on Craigslist right now at $5,950/month. It's a 2,450-square-foot home that dates to 1938. In fact, it's a little bit bigger than it sounds, with a sixth bedroom presently serving as an office. It's two blocks from the Sunset Rec Center, but despite being family size, no pets are allowed. At least there's a garage.
↑ There's a dearth of one-bedroom homes or studios in the city that would set you back six grand (which we'll all agree is a good thing), so we close with another two-bedroom, this one of the condo variety at the Lumina building in South Beach. It comes with a view of the gardens and their Botta-esque skylights, as well as slick, neutral South Beach aesthetics throughout, down to the marble and quartz counters and aluminum built-ins. This one runs $6,000/month even.
