Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Seattle neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: a very reasonable $800/month.
? Let's start at 1521 Bellevue Avenue in Capitol Hill where this 1-BR is available. The listing says "Built in the early 60's for the World's Fair, this building has charm," which is a really nice way of saying "it's old." But hey, you're close to Melrose Market and Bauhaus Books, so, location may trump amenities.
? Next up is 4703 Sand Point Way NE in Laurelhurst where it looks like you get a lot of kitchen for your money. We mean, the rest of the place looks nice enough but, look at that kitchen! For $800/month! You could host jousts in there!
? Finally we land in Belltown at the Charlesgate Apartments on 2230 4th Ave. This studio 425 square-foot studio is nestled inside a historic 1922 brownstone and comes with a private courtyard for residents and easy access to so many shops, restaurants and everything else the neighborhood has to offer. If it's about location, this might be the winner.
