Seattle rent comparison: What $2,300 rents you right now

A house in Lake City or a one-bedroom in Capitol Hill?

Via Craigslist

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in the Seattle area. We found six listings within $100 of today’s price: $2,300.

Via Alcyone Apartments

In South Lake Union, this apartment only has one bedroom, but it’s pretty massive for the neighborhood at 825 square feet. It’s a corner unit and has windows wrapping around the living room—plus a walk-in closet. It allows pets and has in-unit laundry, plus some of the standard shared amenities in a fancy, new-construction building: roof deck, fitness center, resident lounge. No mention of parking, but it’s near transit. It rents for $2,310 a month.

Head to Highland Park for this adorable, three-bedroom, 1100-square-foot Craftsman with hardwood floors and a literal white picket fence renting for $2,325 a month. It includes laundry facilities and, optionally, some furniture. No pets are allowed, but it’s right on bus lines (and in a neighborhood where street parking is maybe actually a thing).

Via Avana on the Lake

This waterfront apartment in Leschi—right on Lake Washington, just east of Frink Park—just has one bedroom, but has a large balcony spanning the entire lakeside edge of the place. Floor-to-ceiling windows let the lake view inside the 625-square-foot space, too. Pets are allowed, and the place comes with in-unit laundry and off-street parking, plus access to a shared resident pool atop the lake. Rent is $2,271 per month.

If you’re looking for more architectural prestige, this one-bedroom in a Fred Anhalt-designed building is renting in Capitol Hill for $2,295 per month. It’s pretty big for a one-bedroom at 860 square feet, and features original millwork, hardwood floors, Gothic arches, coved ceilings, and leaded-glass windows. Cats can come—but no dogs—and garage parking’s available for extra.

In Ballard up by the high school, this two-bedroom in a relatively new-construction building has in-unit laundry and 842 square feet of space. It comes with access to a shared roof deck and reserved parking—although it’s also right in front of a D Line stop—and pets are allowed. Rent here is $2,295 per month.

This wood-paneled, two-bedroom cottage in Lake City with vaulted ceilings, skylights, and cozy backyard patios is renting for $2,295 per month. It has laundry inside it, comes with parking, and allows dogs. It’s pretty far north, just half a block from Seattle’s northern boundary, but is on transit lines and comes with parking. Small dogs are allowed.
