San Francisco Rental: Mt. Sutro 1BR for $1,700


Mount Sutro is an area owned by the University of California at San Francisco. It's 61 acres covered by dense forest -- and includes an impressive summit. The area encompasses one of San Francisco's 44 hills, and one of the city's original "Seven Hills." Mount Sutro features a city-owned area of eucalyptus forest called the Interior Green Belt.

Sounds pretty idyllic; a little oasis in the middle of the city.

That's the location of this one-bedroom apartment for rent in Mt. Sutro Terrace Apartments. You can wake up to beautiful views of the city and ocean (provided that the fog isn't too thick). Besides its beautiful, nearby namesake, the neighborhood boasts a shopping district and is also close to the Judah/10th Street business district. The apartment also is right next to the UCSF Medical Center, and a few blocks from Golden Gate Park and the California Academy of Sciences.

So what do you get for $1,700 a month?
