What this studio apartment at 1800 East Fourth Street #306 might lack in space (512 square feet, not bad, really), it makes up for in location amid East Austin’s bustling, downtown-proximate scene. And, perhaps, low energy bills: It’s located in a Fourth &, a building with a 5-Star Austin Energy Green rating and features solar panels, variable speed A/C systems, and LED lighting throughout, among other green things.
A two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment at 1300 Spyglass Drive in Barton Hills might satisfy any desires you have for a tropical-ish, breeze-blocky aesthetic in your housing choices. Renting for $1,455 per month, the 790-square-foot unit has a fireplace, a patio or balcony, and nifty nickel fixture finishes and other mod amenities.
Those in search of a single family house with a yard and a stylish carport can check out this one-story, 950-square-foot home built in 1970. Located in the North Lamar neighborhood at 9142 North Creek Drive, it has three bedrooms and one bathroom and is renting for $1,350 per month.
Located at 6009 Sheridan Avenue in the sort of pie-wedge zone between Cameron Road and I-35 in Windsor Park, this single-family home is renting for $1,400 per month. It’s a 800-square-foot, one-story house with three bedrooms, one bathroom, wood floors, a fenced yard, and a covered front porch/deck.
A one-bedroom, one-bathroom at Elan East in Cherrywood offers some style and proximity to Manor Road delights for $1,400 per month. The fairly new complex offers lots of community amenities, such as a pool and bike storage, and is close to the MLK Metrorail station.
