Craigslist Deal of the Week: $1200 Bernal Heights Studio

Want to live in the city yet still enjoy the warm weather one typically associates with July? Of course you do; even the most seasoned S.F. veterans can’t help but feel shocked when the calendar's on summer but the look outside clearly shouts February. The solution: Bernal Heights. Tucked into a southern tip of S.F., on the warm side of Twin Peaks with a whole (Noe) valley in between as buffer for any wayward fog, this beacon of warmth is the place to go for your best chance at sun in the city. Sadly though, rent has steadily been climbing by leaps and bounds in this neighborhood for the past couple of years and shows no sign of slowing down soon. That’s why today’s Craigslist Deal is about as special as an 80º Saturday in July.

This light-filled studio is located on Cortland, Bernal’s bustling main street. You’ll be right in the thick of the action, and far enough west to avoid the 101’s constant whir of cars–but still close enough to make commuting a breeze. Rent is an unbelievable $1200 with water included, and with hardwood floors, a claw foot tub, and an eat-in kitchen, the space shows no shortage of charm. Head over to Bernal to check it out soon, if not for the wonderful apartment then at least to get your daily dose of vitamin D.
