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: $1,100/month
↑ 1010 N. Meadows Drive #C, two-bedroom, one-bathroom fourplex apartment, 790 square feet, $1,095/month. Built in 1969, this fourplex located in the North Austin/NACA neighborhood (the 2017 Curbed Cup winner!) has been remodeled from the ground up. It has new and upgraded systems, appliances, and lighting and plumbing fixtures, as well as updated finishes throughout.
↑ 7685 Northcross Drive Unit 326, one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo apartment, 650 square feet, $1,100/month. This Allandale apartment makes the most of its modest square footage with sliding, barn-style doors separating the living area and bedroom. It has granite counters, updated fixtures, stainless steel appliances, and in-unit laundry facilities. Small dogs are allowed.
↑ 900 East Leslie Circle, two-bedroom, one-bathroom duplex, 800 square feet, $1,100/month. This duplex apartment in East Austin’s Johnston Terrace neighborhood has tile floors, laundry facilities in-unit, and a fenced yard. It’s also the rare relatively large two-bedroom at this price point.
↑ 1113 Banister Lane, one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, 747 square feet, $1,100/month. This unit in a smallish South Lamar neighborhood complex has a fireplace, some nifty looking light fixtures, and no dog breed or weight restrictions. Cats are also allowed.
↑ 1010 Winflo Drive, studio apartment, 400 square feet, $1,000/month. This unit located in a Clarksville apartment complex is tiny but pretty cute-looking and has the advantage of being walkable to the neighborhood’s many, many amenities. Studios have oak hardwood or stained concrete floors, and some have downtown views.
