The Victorian architecture and Castro locale of this week's Craigslist deal seem in many ways to make it the quintessential SF pad. Luckily, the only atypical aspect of the apartment is the price. Clocking in at just shy of $1600, this charming one bedroom is quite a steal. Its Storrie and 18th St location is  a short walk to all the action on Castro but set in a quiet residential area that is just off the beaten path. Bay windows overlooking the street offer another classic touch, but the private outdoor area in back is an uncharacteristic aspect of city living that we'd happily accept. The kitchen provides more bonuses with a handsome gas stove and in-sink garbage disposal (one of our absolute favorite things). You're also only about five blocks to most MUNI lines and have got a bus stop just two doors away. And really, how sweet is that exterior? Much better than coming home to a gray box of an apartment building, in our humble opinion. See more details (including open house times) here. Castro Victorian Apartment
