Here’s what $4,000 rents you around Austin

Which one would you choose?

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various Austin neighborhoods. Today’s price: $4,000 (or thereabouts) per month. Vote for your favorite below.

East Congress

It would be better if this new condo, located near the burgeoning St. Elmo area in the South Austin neighborhood now called East Congress, weren’t so blatantly staged as a vacation rental. Nevertheless, it looks bright and large (1,663 square feet), with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a balcony. There’s also a gym and a pool in the complex. It’s renting for $4,000 per month.

Barton Hills

A midcentury house with an architectural pedigree (designed and built by A.D. Stenger, sometimes called “Austin’s Eichler”) can be had for $4,000 per month as well. Located on a woodsy Barton Hills lot, the single-story, 1,288-square-foot home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a stone patio in back.

Hyde Park

A roomy home in Hyde Park will set you back about $3,995 per month at the moment (you can also rent the garage apartment in back for another $1,295 per month if you’d like). The vintage, 2,048-square-foot home has three to five bedrooms (depending on whether you want to use the formal dining room and/or the study as bedrooms) and two bathrooms.

Downtown

Four grand a month will nab you a swanky penthouse loft Downtown—a price that can be negotiated if you sign a one-year lease. It’s another apartment that’s a little too obviously marketed for short-term rental, but it’s stylish, even so (and rent includes all bills except internet/cable). It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,395 square feet.

Travis Heights

This 1920s brick home on a leafy Travis Heights corner is renting for $3,750 and offers vintage features such as wood floors and high ceilings as well as updates. Situated near Little Stacy Park and a popular section of the South Congress strip, it has three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,236 square feet.
