7 of the Best Views from Home

May 19th, 2016

Not to brag, but… San Francisco is quite the looker. To put it nicely, it’s an easy 10. Amid the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge and all of the mountains, parks, and historic buildings in between, the City by the Bay can arguably be the most beautiful in America. Why live in a windowless box when you can gaze outside the pretty city out your beautiful bay panels of glass? RentSFNow specializes in historical buildings with updated interiors, in the most iconic neighborhoods of the city. Here, we rounded up some of our most swoon-worthy views from just a few of our hundreds of buildings.


2238 Hyde

Come on, seriously? If you’ve snagged this apartment, you’ve struck San Francisco gold. The appropriately named View Tower in Russian Hill boasts a tennis court with Sterling Park nearby so you can sunbathe and then slip up to your tower to enjoy your 5-star view at sunset.


685 Geary

Urban hustlers have hit the jackpot in this downtown home. Walk everywhere you want to be or hop on MUNI for some weekend beach time. Put on some Billie Holiday and slow dance on the beautiful hardwood floors after work to truly enjoy city living at its finest.


1855 10th Ave

One look at this place and you’ll think ‘aaaaaah’. This Sunset apartment is a stone’s throw from Twin Peaks, where you can take your dog on weekly hikes. A zip down Noriega and you’re at the beach. An even closer jog down 10th Ave. and you’re at Golden Gate Park. We recommend investing in some good tennis shoes.


1320-1380 Lombard

Come Monday morning, you’ll want to ask your boss to work from home—from now on. Blocks from Fort Mason and a drool-worthy view of the Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll get all the inspiration you’ll ever need from inside an apartment. Hey, maybe you’ll get around to finally writing that memoir…


1340-1390 Taylor

Bright lights, big city! This sweeping skyline view will make you want to step up your entertaining game. Dinner parties, after-hour parties or Game of Thrones parties can be yours, without having to leave home. You’ve really made it in the big city, kid.


2677 Larkin

Channel your inner Jack Kerouac in this incredibly delicious view. The grand entryway keeps all of the historic charm, so you will be inspired the moment you step into the building. Views of the Bay and Alcatraz don’t hurt, either.


610-660 Clipper

Watch over all your royal subjects at this palace-status view. Okay, this Noe Valley pad is definitely more ‘60s Mad Men than a Renaissance-era movie, but either way, it’s pretty dapper, Don. (see what we did there?)
