Rounding up rentals in Chestnut, Travis Heights, Judge’s Hill, East Riverside, and Crestview

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: $1,190.

East Riverside apartment in Austin Via Zillow

Hillside Creek, 1730 East Oltorf Street Apt. 717, one bedroom, one bathroom, 832 square feet, $1,181/month. This East Riverside-Oltorf apartment offers a bucolic, creekside setting and convenience to downtown. Pets allowed.

7210 Hardy Drive, two bedrooms, one bathroom, 823 square feet, $1,175/month. The front half of a Crestview duplex has a one-car carport and a large, fenced yard, maintained by management. Despite the yard, no dogs allowed.

1170 Nueces Street #201, one bedroom, one bathroom, 500 square feet, $1,195/month. Someone went a little Santa Fe on this Judge’s Hill condo, but it looks like it’s surrounded by greenery and filtered light. It’s in a small, gated community, comes with one covered parking spot, and allows one pet under 35 pounds.

2705 E 16th St # B, one bedroom, one bathroom, 2,868 square feet, $1,195 /month. It’s a little hard to believe the listed square footage listed for this duplex outpost of Austin Weird in the Eastside’s Chestnut neighborhood, but it doesn’t look tiny, either. It has wood floors, is two blocks from the MLK rail station, and allows pets.

1300 Newning Avenue, one bedroom, one bathroom, 600 square feet, $1,195/month. Location and some lovely grounds seem to be the main draw for this Travis Heights apartment, located in a small complex built in 1963. Pets allowed.
