A choice of homes in the central city

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: $2,995 (ish).

1301 East 28th Street, three-bedroom, two-bathroom house, 1,280 square feet, $3,000/month. Built in 1937, this home has been updated but has vintage appeal. Centrally located in Cherrywood, it has hardwood floors, a decked-out kitchen, and stylish finishes. The house is located on a corner lot and has small but sweet backyard and deck.

Gables Park Tower, 111 Sandra Muraida Way, Apt. 14A, one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo apartment, 890 square feet, $2,865/month. You won’t get a huge amount of space with this Downtown condo, but you’ll get a prime central location walkable to retail, entertainment, and multiple grocery stores, as well as the Seaholm complex and the lake.

2605 Pecos Street, four-bedroom, two-bathroom house, 2,214 square feet, $2,995/month. This one-story, brick house in Tarrytown doesn’t hide the fact that it was built in 1958, but it has been well-maintained and has new carpet, an updated kitchen, a fireplace, and a large lot.
