The Central District has this recently renovated one-bedroom apartment in a stately 1918 building for $1,575 per month. It’s certainly been polished up, but it retains a bay window and possibly original flooring. While there are no breed restrictions on pets, they’re subject to both a deposit and $50 in pet rent. There’s no parking, but it’s along the 27 line.

For two bedrooms, head to Green Lake. This apartment is small for its bedroom count—560 square feet—but it’s just a block away from Green Lake Park. Pets are subject to both a deposit and $35 in pet rent, and off-street parking is available (although it’s on the 26 and 63 lines). Rent is $1,595 per month.

Another option with two bedrooms is this Fremont unit with built-ins and an eat-in kitchen for $1,650 per month. It’s at least a little bigger—although still small for two bedrooms—at 665 square feet, and is right on the 5 and bike lanes. Pets can come, but with both pet rent ($35) and a deposit.
