About

Fantastic, large, 3-B/R (2 available), top-floor, partially-furnished, penthouse live-work apartment five blocks from Union Square in a landmark building. Highly flexible sublet available, two couples or small family maximum. Elegant top-floor penthouse live-work apartment five blocks from Union Square in a landmark, 1922, high-ceilinged, magnificent multi-room apartment with large outside terrace, fireplace, kitchen, washer/dryer, living room, dining room, entrance foyer, 2 bedrooms w/ individual shower/bath, hot-tub (unused for some time) with 360-degree views of the city and the Bay. This space is offered as a legal sublet of a rent-controlled lease, so you would also be enjoying significant savings for a flexible number (8 to 12) of months per year if you travelled out of town during the year. You would get without realtor fees or brutal lease requirements nearly all of the fully-furnished apartment. The apartment would still be my primary residence, and during the periods that you didn't want to be in town (we would coordinate this all in advance), I'd pay the full rent. Those months that you did, I'd arrange my out-of-town contract work/parent-care/travel. If you wanted the apartment for the full 12-months, you'd be sharing it with my low foot-print presence. Thus, with sufficient advanced notice of months for both parties away, you would only pay full price for the months you wanted to be in San Francisco, and there would be secure storage available for your personal effects while you were away. Term may start any time from February 1, 2021 onward with no maximum number months, but a minimum of around 7. Walker’s Paradise according to www.walkscore.com: 98 out of 100, 100 out of 100 for transit score. DSL Internet (Ethernet and WiFi), free phone, fax, long distance, multi-component entertainment center (no TV, though) plus DVD/HD/Blu-ray projector to 5’x8' hideaway screen. Both bedrooms are unfurnished, though the apartment has a lot of built-in cabinetry, shelves, and storage. One bedroom has a large, semi-circular, fixed work-at-home desk. The other has 2x4' committed to storage. Payment for utilities: electricity, Internet, and bi-monthly cleaning will be required. Must comply with building’s owner rules/approval and all local laws and ordinances.
