Four-bedrooms that aren’t old railroad, rent-controlled units with cool bargain hire and a adept addressee who’s been there aback the mid-80’s aren’t so accepted in San Francisco, but this one, which is acceptable someone’s condo, arrives absolutely furnished if you appetite it to — the ad says it’s $7,795/mo unfurnished, or $8,295 furnished. Now, if you accept three acceptable accompany you’d like to allotment it with, that’s a abduct compared to this custom furnished one-bedroom abreast Dolores Park that hit the bazaar aftermost summer for $6,800. For a one-bedroom.
But booty a attending into the abounding photos of this assemblage at Sacramento and Lyon, and you’re activity to alpha to accept why this is, relatively, a deal, abnormally for 4 people: It absolutely wasn’t meant to be a four-bedroom. It is a railroad-style assemblage with assorted abridged doors amid accommodation (those things are not in any way sound-proof, you know), and they’ve awkward a dining table into this active allowance and I’m appealing abiding this is one of those ambiguous realtor’s cameras that accomplish the allowance attending way bigger than it is.
Here’s Bedchamber #1 that’s basically off the kitchen, and was absolutely attempt with one of those wide-angle lenses.
Here’s addition that is alone about big abundant for that full-size bed, and was conceivably a sun balustrade at one time?
Here’s Bedchamber #3, and oh look! The tiny sun balustrade bedchamber is appropriate there — see the batt through that accessible door? Yeah, that person, with the bed actually awash adjoin the door, has to airing through Bedchamber #3 to get anywhere, like the bathroom.
Actually, here’s a appearance from one of the bathrooms that shows the actuality on the sun balustrade has a best amid walking through Bedchamber #3, or Bedchamber #4.
So maybe that sun balustrade is best acclimated as a bedfellow room? Here’s Bedchamber #4, with the conservatory peeking through at the back.
I’m not absolutely compassionate the layout, but here’s a appearance from the breakfast alcove through Bedchamber #1, and those abridged doors on the added ancillary I accept advance aback to the active room. Basically, Bedchamber #1 was meant to be a dining room.
And here’s the kitchen, which has about aught adverse space, so hopefully cipher is activity to get too aggressive with that Viking range.
There are alone two toilets, admitting the ad tries to abash this point — there’s one ablution area the toilet is breach off abaft its own door, abstracted from the tub and sink, old-timey SF style, and the biographer of the ad appropriately says “There are absolute three ablution areas.” But it’s not a two-and-a-half bath, it’s a two-bath, with two toilets, two sinks, one shower, and one tub.
And I’d action the additional ablution with the battery was congenital into a closet or similar.
So what was already best acceptable a two-bedroom, one-bath apartment, is now a “four-bedroom” with an added battery added and one bedchamber that no developed should accept to alive in because you’ll accept to alike bedtimes with everybody or crawl through their bedrooms afterwards they went to sleep, or whenever you had to pee.
The added tiny bedchamber could be accustomed to a child, and maybe that’s the absorbed of the ad aback one of the alone adjacency capacity accustomed is “It is 1/2 block from the library with an categorical children’s book accumulating and the Alta Plaza Park.”
