New, 2 comments

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Austin neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $2,600.

5215 Woodrow Avenue Via Zillow

5215 Woodrow Avenue, two-bedroom, one-bathroom house, 1,014 square feet, $2,500/month. Well, hello, little midcentury charmer. This beloved style is found in abundance in this house’s Rosedale neighborhood, but rentals don’t usually have this combination of period details and updates.

1821 Westlake Drive, Apt 121, two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, 1,823-square-foot, $2,550/month. A two-story, townhouse-style rental in West Lake Hills, this apartment offers a balcony with that neighborhood’s characteristic nice views and greenery. It has an office/bonus room, an open floor plan, hardwood floors, and lots of community amenities.

904 Willow Street, two-bedroom, one-bathroom house, 1,008 square feet, $2,600/month. A Victorian home built in 1900 in the East Cesar Chavez neighborhood, this house has wood floors and tile throughout, updates including central air, and lots of beautiful woodwork.

Folio, 11915 Stonehollow Drive, Apt. 1611, three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, 1,352 square feet, $2,550/month. Located on the northern edge (or possibly just outside of) the North Burnet neighborhood, this peppy apartment has an open concept floor plan with nine-foot ceilings, fully equipped eat-in kitchen, full-sized washer and dryer, walk-in closet, and lots of group amenities.

814 Columbus Street, two-bedroom, two-bathroom house, 1,084 square feet, $2,550/month. The Bouldin Creek neighborhood reliably turns up this kind of quintessentially South Austin cottage, with wood floors, drought tolerant landscaping and raised garden bands, and vintage details such as shiplap walls. Kitchen and bathrooms have been updated, and yard maintenance is included in the rent.
