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?
The Mt. Sutro Terrace Apartments will beget you a one-bedroom, one-bathroom situation with air conditioning, hardwood floors, a balcony and patio, as well as a washer/dryer. Apartments come both furnished and unfurnished.

The apartment complex tries to foster a social environment where one can meet neighbors without feeling overcrowded or cramped. And if you want to feel overcrowded and cramped, there are three MUNI lines and several bus stops nearby to take you into the heart of the city.

So how does $1,700 match up to other one-bedroom apartments near Mount Sutro? This is a really good price.

You can find places for $1,600 if you look around, but being that this apartment is close to UCSF they try to keep rent affordable to students, which means if you don't want to live in a building with a bunch of students, you might want to consider paying more and living a little farther from the university.
