A two-bedroom condo apartment asking $1,300/month seems like a decent deal for its location—on a Manor Road sweet spot in East Austin’s Chestnut neighborhood—even if does have only one bathroom. Measuring 800 square feet, it has wood and carpeted floors and comes with an in-unit washer-dryer and one parking space. Pets are prohibited (probably just as well, considering how busy Manor can get).
A 630-square-foot apartment in Old West Austin, this one-bedroom unit also has the disadvantage of being located on a busy street (Enfield) but appears to be buffered by a walled courtyard with a swimming pool, its parking lots, and deep patios and balconies. It’s been updated recently and is asking $1,300/month.
