A variety of homes from Mueller to Sendera South

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy 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: $2,100/month.

1004 Eason Street, two-bedroom, one-bathroom house, 1,300 square feet, $2,100/month.
