Craigslist Deal of the Week: $1595 Studio in Russian Hill


All hail the glorious sun! This past weekend's phenomenal weather made me want to worship that giant star much like the Aztecs, thanks to its spirit-lifting (and pasty leg-annhilating) powers. Even on typical city days where you'll only find a bit of sol peeking through a thick sheet of fog, I'll take what I can get. But that's easier said than done here where railroad-style apartments are in abundance and many units offer just one lone window at the end of a long corridor, providing more of a reminder of sun, rather than actually delivering any. I'm thankful then that there are places like this week's Craigslist deal to be had.

At this corner studio located past Lombard in the quiet section of Van Ness, you get sunshine streaming in from two full picture windows on adjacent sides, resulting in a lovely sheen bouncing off the unit's hardwood floors and ample light throughout your living space. You also get a walk-in closet, full kitchen and breakfast nook, and onsite laundry. If that's not good enough, you can even bring along a cat or dog who, I'm sure, would love to curl up in either of those sunny bay window seats. Corner Studio Apartment
