We talk a lot about how expensive all the rentals are around Seattle but we rarely stop to look at the actual rental spaces themselves. While there's plenty of places asking more than they're probably worth, we thought we'd take some time during Renter's Week to marvel at the beautiful living spaces around the city that warrant a special price, or at least a second look. For example, how about an award-winning modern marvel like this North Delridge 3-BR? Designed by Replinger Hossner Architects, the AIA-award winner balances minimalist living with fine finishes. Highlights include an open steel & glass stair system, walls of windows overlooking great views and a Japanese soaking tub in the master bath. All is costs you is $3,800/month.
There's something about a great Tudor that's beautiful in it's simplicity. This remodeled Queen Anne 4-BR exudes that easy-going beauty inside and out. Hardwood floors, classic kitchen and a lower-level guest room, not to mention a harming fenced backyard. It's quintessential living without locking yourself in to a mortgage (though it'll still set you back $4,350/month).
Mid-century fans will want to take a gander at this 1948 View Ridge 4-BR. It's a classic beauty and a throwback to a time when stone fireplaces, home bars and intricate bathroom details were the norm. $4,300/month and it drops you right in the middle of a great neighborhood with just as great views.
Over in Bryant Park, here's a refurbished home with some gorgeous design details. The tile fireplace the centerpiece of the living room while that diner-style kitchen booth steals the whole show. The kitchen itself is a wonderful throwback and much of the rest of the home transports you to back to the 50's when it was built. You'll need to set aside $4,000/month, FYI...
A 2008 build, this urban contemporary Admiral home boasts not only an impressive look but also plenty of amenities to make life simple. This 3,000 sq. ft. residence features a spiral staircase, bonus room/loft, covered patio space, two-story living room with decorative fire place, large roof top deck and a complete master bedroom with stunning views. You get your $3,695/month-worth, that's for sure.
