It is spectacular and one of the few places that I looked at and instantly "got". I saw how our furniture/lifestyle would fit whereas most places I'm struggling to see how we could live there. This fellow has been collecting salvaged architecture for years and has put it all in this place. At any rate, the rent is more than I can get my head around, the street is busy, no outdoor space, and we have been living out of suitcases for three weeks and I don't want to double move.
Looking at space here is tough. Realtors seem to make up sq footage on the spot and the grand looking typical SF house facade is in fact faked with the top 4-5 feet just added on for street appeal. Half the city is like a cheap Bollywood film set.
