Home sizes and styles north, south, east—and downtown

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: $1,795.

Gables Park Plaza, 115 Sandra Muraida Way Apt. 203, one-bedroom, one-bathroom duplex, 706 square feet, $1,795/month. Located on a roundabout near the condo cluster close to the Seaholm Complex and overlooking the Lamar Bridge, this home has a convenient Downtown location and easy lake access. The unit has 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, and laundry facilities, and the building has the requisite gym and rooftop pool

1703 Canterbury Street B, two-bedroom, one-bathroom duplex, 1,237 square feet, $1,795/month. A completely remodel with stainless steel appliances and washer/dryer in a quiet pocket of the happening East César Chavez neighborhood. Walk to parks, restaurants, the lake, and Downtown.

3106 Glen Ora #B, two-bedroom, one-bathroom duplex, 990 square feet, $1,850/month. This home in the South Lamar neighborhood is a little above this week’s price point (which, in retrospect, might be overly specific), but it’s been completely updated, and has a fenced yard and Google Fiber connections.

1712 Prairie Hen Cove, four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom house, 1,920 square feet, $1,795/month. A two-story, single-family home in North Austin, not too far from the Domain, this home is on a quiet, dead-end street and has lots of space indoors and out.
