Rental Watch: Yardage and Greenery



    The Dos and Don'ts of Good Sleep

    Every once in a while, Curbed SF checks in with the San Francisco rental market. And we do it the layman's way: by scouring Craigslist. In today's episode of Rental Watch, we searched high and low for that Holy Green Grail of rentals: the yard.

    What:2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment
    Where: Mission
    How much: $3950
    The Hard Sell: 128 Linda's remodeled Edwardian charm abounds. Top floor, chef's kitchen and views. Plus: "sun-drenched, beautifully landscaped" garden with avocado trees. Fancy.

    Where:Cole Valley
    How much: $3850
    The Hard Sell: At 1600 square feet, you're really paying for the square footage on this Victorian apartment. "Massive amounts of cabinets" plus an old-timey fireplace are nice touches, but the kicker: "beautiful" yard and garden shared with two other units.

    2008-10-portola.jpgWhat:3 bedroom, 1 bath detached house
    Where: Portola
    How much: $2650
    The Hard Sell: Hardwood floors, "tasteful" remodel, garage, all on a "special block." Green goods: The secluded, "verdant" yard "is great for BBQ and has room for a hot tub."
