Everyone has their personal Holy Grail of apartment amenities–you know, that perfect combination of home features that always seems to elude you in your hunt. For me, it's a place with hardwood floors that allows doggies. For under $2000, it's surprisingly hard to find. But today it caught my eye like a needle glimmering in a stack of hay; yes, this week's Craigslist Deal has got all my requirements, and then some.
This beautiful Alamo Square apartment is covered in hardwood floors, and it's recently been remodeled to a stunning sheen. It's got a sharp kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a living room with built-in fireplace, and a bathroom with new marble shower surround. You're also just about a block away from the park–perfect for walking your pup. Oh, and cross this off your Holy Grail checklist: The unit's got a dishwasher. Score!
