In the University District, this two-bedroom is in El Monterey, a historic Spanish Revival building designed by E.J. Beardsley, who designed many similar buildings in the city. Packed in 1,000 square feet are French doors, stained glass, and even a prominent fireplace. The unit is on the top floor and has a balcony, but doesn’t allow pets. It rents for $2,450 a month.

Just south of Lake City in Victory Heights, this 1950s three-bedroom, pet-friendly rambler rents for $2,490 a month. The house itself is around 1500 square feet, but sits on a lot with more than 7,000 square feet—giving it a pretty huge yard. An added bonus room opens up to the backyard.

In Jackson Place just south of Squire Park, this boxy, 2000-square-foot, two-bedroom Spanish Revival house has dark-colored hardwood floors and an ornate fireplace, plus garden space outside. It allows pets and rents for $2,495 a month.

A few blocks off the main drag of Greenwood, this adorable Victorian house only has one bedroom in 800 square feet, but it comes with a “whimsical storage shed,” garden space and a shared backyard. It allows pets, and the $2,475 a month in rent comes with cable TV, WiFi, and lawn care.

On the very, very north end of Capitol Hill—almost to Eastlake—this 1025-square-foot one-bedroom with a den in a vintage building features French doors and a wood-burning fireplace, plus its own private entrance and storage in the basement and garage. Outside, a barbecue area also features a cabana. Pets are allowed, but deposit varies on breed. It rents for $2,500 a month on the dot.

This industrial-looking loft in South Lake Union has a ground-floor entrance and 884 square feet of space. Building amenities include a fitness center, a game room, and gardening space. It’s pet-friendly and rents for $2,520 a month.
