For $4,800 per month, you can rent this two-story condo apartment with three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in Clarksville. Provided the building is open, of course: The listing doesn’t have the build date, but it appears to be brand-new. It has lots of luxury features, a fenced courtyard, and an upstairs deck. The units that face Enfield Road might be noisy or might be well-buffered, hard to say. Pets are allowed.
If you prefer your new, mod home to be a two-story house in East Cesar Chavez, this Steve Zagorski design renting for $5,500 per month might fill the bill. It’s a 2,200-square-foot home with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, high ceilings, an open floor plan, lots of techy features, and a large, private yard with an outdoor kitchen. Pets are allowed.
Those with a traditional bent might enjoy a 2,330-square-foot house in Tarrytown, renting for $5,500 per month. The one-story, brick home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, a two-car garage, and a fenced backyard. Pets are okay.
Another new build, this two-story, detached condo in Travis Heights is renting for $5,250 per month. It has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in 2,230 square feet and is decked out in a mod contemporary style that includes lots of windows, an open layout, and some very groovy tile work. Cats and small dogs are allowed.
It’s entirely possible that this house with a guest apartment in Rosedale, renting for $4,500 per month, doubles as a vacation rental. Nevertheless, it looks like it would make a fine regular old rental, as it has fully producing gardens and fruit trees with drip irrigation and, oh, a pool. It also has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, plus that bonus room with its own bathroom and a kitchenette. Pets are go.
