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: $3,200.
↑ 215 Leland Street, four-bedroom, two-bathroom house, 2,053 square feet, $3,250. This single-family home in Travis Heights is a block from the South Congress shopping/dining/entertainment bustle. Built in 1933, it has many updates but retains some original features, such as wood floors and exposed shiplap walls.
↑ The Monarch, 801 West Fifth Street Unit 2208, two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, 1,374 square feet, $3,215. A unit in the 29-story Monarch building, located a few blocks from the lake and other exciting stuff, will be the representative luxury Downtown rental for this week’s Curbed Comparison. This condo-style unit has the expected high-end finishes and details, views, and balcony, as well access to upscale building amenities, including a 24-hour concierge. Pets are allowed.
↑ Undisclosed address, four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom condo duplex, 2,328 square feet, $3,200. The location for this two-story duplex condo unit is officially “undisclosed,” but there’s an address in the listing that puts it solidly in Crestview. The unit is brand-new and has never been lived in. Some of its features include all-new stainless appliances, high ceilings, recessed lighting, a laundry room, a two-car garage, and a private, fenced yard.
↑ 5708 Trailridge Drive, three-bedroom, two-bathroom house, 1,500 square feet, $3,200. A single-family home located in central Northwest Austin, just west of MoPac and north of FM 2222, this single-family home was built in 1956 and remodeled in 2008. It’s on a large lot and has a fenced backyard, a laundry/mudroom with a washer and dryer, and a two-car garage. The owner pays for monthly yard and pest service. Pets are allowed.
↑ The Talisman, 1501 Barton Springs Road Apt. 239, two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo apartment, 1,384 square feet, $3,200. Located in a Zilker neighborhood complex built in 1982, this condo unit looks to have been updated fairly recently. It has city views, hardwood and tile floors, a deck, and an attached, one-car garage.
