New, 1 comment

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: $1,225.

Long, low building painted bright blue with four red doors

2108 Rosewood Avenue # A, one-bathroom duplex studio apartment, 650 square feet, $1,245 /month. An industrial-style space in the Rosewood neighborhood in East Austin, this apartment is set back from the busy street and is surrounded by a variety of old-school creative businesses. It has polished concrete floors and a shared, gated backyard with—get this!—a leftover stage/riser from an unofficial SXSW event. Score!

11211 Slaughter Creek Park, two-bedroom, two-bathroom house, 952 square feet, $1,200/month. Located in Far South Austin, almost to Manchaca, this mobile/prefab home looks to be a little bit country, or at least in the country, with a back porch for watching wildlife as well as a generous yard—which the owners keep cut. You may not, however, hunt on the property.

1302 Parker Lane, Apt. 109, two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom apartment, 1,030 square feet, $1,250 /month. This apartment in an older East Riverside apartment complex but looks to have been nicely renovated. It’s also convenient to downtown, the lake, and Buzzmill coffeehouse/bar without being right on very busy East Riverside Drive. Pets allowed, no breed restrictions.

12802 Chromite Street, three-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex, 950 square feet, $1,250/month. Heading Far North, we find a duplex on a secluded street with a fenced backyard, tile and carpet floors, and a fireplace. It’s also in the Pflugerville school district.

Midtown Commons, 810 West Saint Johns Avenue, studio apartment, 711 square feet, $1,260. This Crestview apartment is a bit over this week’s price point, but it’s a good example of the kind of New Austin units available in the north-central neighborhood (and points north as well). Its in a 73-acre complex that includes live-work options, is close to public transportation, and has lots of environmentally friendly and luxury features.
