↑ On the border of Downtown and Pioneer Square, this newer-construction studio rents for $1,826. It has gigantic windows with expansive views, plus a washer and dryer in-unit in an industrial-chic interior. What it lacks in private space it makes up for in public amenities like coworking space with semi-private stations, a gym, a library, a theater, and a lounge with a wraparound balcony for larger events.
↑ In White Center, $1,900 will rent you a 950-square-foot, two-bedroom bungalow owned by a designer, complete with a fenced yard. It has an option of coming fully-furnished and has fruit trees and vegetable gardens already on the premises.
↑ On the cusp of Capitol Hill and the Central District, this open one-bedroom—the walls around the bedroom don’t reach the ceiling—apartment with floor-to-ceiling windows rents for $1,800. A large, shared patio is all set up for barbecues, it’s dog-friendly, and there’s a washer and dryer in-unit.
↑ This vintage two-bedroom apartment in a single-family area in Upper Queen Anne rents for $1,800, and has gorgeous features like bay windows, wide archways, and hardwood floors. It’s on the top floor in a small, six-unit building, and has a washer and dryer in-unit.
↑ In Westlake—like, literally, in the west side of Lake Union—this 40-foot boat has one bedroom and two bathrooms. It’s billed as a houseboat, but it appears to be a normal, if larger, functional boat with extensive indoor livability space on a houseboat slip. It rents for $1,875.
↑ On the northern end of Ballard just past Golden Gardens, this daylight basement apartment is just 150 feet from a private beach entrance. It has a large living and dining area and tiled floors throughout, and rents for $1,850.
