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).
