The Inner Richmond is like the sleeper hit of San Francisco - when you first move here it is by no means on your radar as a happening neighborhood, but after a while you begin to appreciate it more. After all, the area offers a friendly vibe, a few solid bars, close proximity to the park, and a few of the best dim sum spots in the city - basically all of our favorite aspects of living in SF rolled into one neighborhood. And did we mention it's cheap? That's why we had to feature this two bedroom available at 3rd and Clement. It is in a great part of the Inner Richmond and features two bedrooms plus an office, hardwood floors, and a washer and dryer. The kitchen looks nice and spacious, too.
For some, North Beach calls to mind alcohol-fueled debachery, strip clubs, and bus loads of tourists as far as the eye can see. If that's your thing, sweet. If not, don't write the place off yet. Stop by on a weekday and you'll find a charming, picturesque neighborhood filled with little Italian grandmas, one-of-a-kind boutiques (Al's Attire is our fave), and amazing bakeries (have you ever tried a slice of Stella Bakery's sacrapantina? Fuggedaboutit - so good). The location is nothing to sneeze at either. If you work downtown it's just a brisk walk away, meaning you could say 'arrivederci' to that soul-crushing morning MUNI ride you loathe.
Lately the only thing on our mind is the anticipation of warm weather. Overcast, rainy days may try to buzzkill our weekends now, but we know summer is nigh (believe it or not, it's already May). It's no wonder then, that this apartment immediately caught our eye - the deck is perfect for basking in the warm, soon-to-be summer sun. Other perks: great location on Sacramento just a block from Laurel Village, a dishwasher and garbage diposal, three closets, hardwood floors, and it's on the top floor.
