In South Lake Union, a newish-construction one-bedroom on the west side of the lake has in-unit laundry, hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows—including in the bedroom—and some built-in shelving. It’s $2,050 per month for 657 feet of pet-friendly space, but available parking will cost you extra. A shared roof deck has a barbecue and a fire pit, plus lake views.
Head north of the city limits to Mountlake Terrace to find a whole house—a two-bedroom rambler with a huge backyard, a washer and dryer, and off-street parking. Pets are negotiable. It takes some doing to get to downtown Seattle by transit, though. Rent here is $1,995 per month.
On the cusp of Capitol Hill and the Central Area, this 630-square-foot one-bedroom in a newly remodeled 1920s building rents for $2,055 per month. That includes a gigantic balcony, in-unit laundry, and a large kitchen, plus access to a roof deck and a fire pit. Garage parking is available, and pets are welcome.
This downtown one-bedroom in the historic Cobb Building has undergone a modern remodel, and includes herringbone hardwoods, in-unit laundry, large windows, and both heat and AC. The $2,000 in rent includes access to a roof terrace and a fitness center. Parking is available and pets are okay.
Head south to South Park to find a 1800-square-foot four-bedroom in the upper half of a duplex, with adorable vintage details like built-in shelves, hardwood floors, a clawfoot tub, and French doors. Utilities are included in the $1,975 rent. There’s a large front porch and some outdoor space with “mature landscaping,” but no pets are allowed.
This classic Pioneer Square loft features high ceilings, exposed brick, and hardwood floors—and those huge, industrial windows are facing the water for an incredible view. There’s no bathtub, but it does have in-unit laundry, plus old hardwoods. Garage parking is available and pets are allowed. Rent here is $2,050.
