Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. This week, we're investigating apartments listed for $1,000/month. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ Bet you were picturing nothing but 400 sq. ft. studios. And yet, here we are at a 1,720 sq. ft. 1-BR in West Seattle. That includes a 760 sq. ft. finished basement, laundry machines and an attached garage. Also puts you pretty close to the Junction if you're looking for something close to retail & restaurants.
↑ Next, we head to the corner of 35th & Fremont Ave where this 1-BR is available. Tiny kitchen but decent-enough space for the price. Building amenities include a small backyard with a BBQ pit, onsite laundry facilities, storage and bike racks. Not a shabby spot if you want to be in the middle of the action in Fremont, assuming what happens in Fremont meets your definition of "action."
↑ Inside this gorgeous 1920's brick building you'll find a studio space available for $995/mo. Well-kept and in great shape, you could do worse in terms of living arrangements. No word on the square-footage but a pretty ideal spot for Seattle U students and/or Capitol Hill residents who value location over personal space. And is it us or is the shower actually kinda huge?
↑ In Ravenna, you'll find a 510 sq. ft. studio in Varsity Apartments available to rent. Nice, newer building not far from Cowen Park or Green Lake. Washer & dryer in the unit, which isn't something you find in too many spaces this size (or at this price).
↑ Finally, we head to the South Slope of Queen Anne where this 336 sq. ft. studio is available for $995/mo. Residences inside the 1909-built Corona building include large double hung Victorian windows, massive window bays, natural hard wood floors, abundant natural light and large walk-in closets. Puts you right around the corner from Seattle Center as well.
