Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Seattle neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: approximately $1,500/month in North Seattle (a.k.a. anything north of Lake Washington Ship Canal).
? Let's begin at 322 NE 80th St. where this mother-in-law 1-BR on the Maple Leaf/Green Lake border is available for $1,500/mo. Looks like you get all the cozy comforts of living in a condo building without living in a condo building. At 1,050 square-feet, you also get a lot of room to stretch out.
? From Green Lake to Greenwood where Unit B is available at 717 N 95th St. This 2-BR/1.5 bath comes with hardwood floors, gas fireplace, vaulted ceilings and one-car garage. Easy access to the bus line for the downtown commuter who wants a place with a bit more space (1,164 square-feet).
? Maybe a Wallingford loft is more your style. Here's Apt. 402 at 4038 Stone Way N, available for $1,550/month. In this neighborhood in the midst of a rebirth, you'll get a place with wood floors, a gas burning fireplace and a spiral staircase to the loft space and rooftop area.
? Finally we end up in Ballard where a unit on the bottom floor of a fourplex at 802 NW 62nd St. is available for $1,485/month. At 1,000 square-feet, you get 2-BR, 2-bath, wood fireplace and breakfast nook. You've always wanted a breakfast nook. Nook it up!
