What $3,200 rents in Seattle right now

An apartment by the market or a big Roxhill house

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in Seattle. We found five listings within $100 of today’s price: $3,200.

West Seattle

In the Roxhill area near Westwood Village, this entire, giant house—2,400 square feet—has three full bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a backyard (originally designed by the Kubotas!) with a shed and garden space. It has not one, but two gas fireplaces, a finished den downstairs, plus a large deck above. Laundry’s onsite. Dogs up to 50 pounds are allowed in the house, which is walking distance to big-store errands (again, Westwood Village) and small businesses alike and is on the 21 and 22 for commuting. There’s a two-car garage, too. Rent is $3,150.

A white countertop. Behind it to the left is open shelving, and to the right, corner windows facing a street and tall buildings. Via Craigslist

Downtown

Near Pike Place Market, this second-floor, northwest-facing luxury one-bedroom apartment in a Tom Kundig-designed building rents for $3,175 a month. It’s pretty big for its location and bedroom count—896 square feet—and includes a walk-in closet, a private balcony, in-unit laundry, air conditioning, and Bosch appliances. It has a pretty steep list of shared, new-building amenities, too: a top-floor shared event space and wraparound deck, a pet run, terraces with grills, and some kind of mobile concierge app. Both cats and dogs can come. Parking’s available, but you’re also a block from perhaps the area’s busiest transit corridor.

Facing a living room from an open kitchen, there’s a corner of countertop and sink in the foreground, a three-window bank on the far wall, and a sliding-glass door to a Juliet balcony on the right. A blue sectional is atop a gray rug by the windows. Via Craigslist

Capitol Hill

Up on 10th Avenue by Volunteer Park, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment rents for $3,250 a month. It has an open living and dining area with a small balcony that leaves room for two sizeable bedrooms, including a master with a full en-suite bath and its own private balcony. A tree-lined courtyard adds a little privacy to the unit and gathering space for the building. Residents also share a gym, roof deck, and lounge. Dogs and cats can come (with breed restrictions). Garage parking’s available, but the immediate area has zoned street parking—and it’s right on the 49 or a 15-minute walk to light rail.

Queen Anne

Right as lower Queen Anne starts to become upper Queen Anne—and just off 99—this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in a Craftsman house rents for $3,250 a month. It has a spacious, open kitchen, in-unit laundry, and a fenced backyard (and pets are allowed!). It’s right on the 3 and 4 lines; a block from the 5, 26, and 28; and walkable to restaurants, South Lake Union, Seattle Center, and even downtown if you feel like it.

Laurelhurst

Become one of the three* renters in Laurelhurst in this two-bedroom Mission Revival house renting for $3,200 a month on the dot. It’s on a cul-de-sac just a block from the water, and while it was built in 1915, it looks considerably newer inside, with recessed lighting, a newer-style gas fireplace, and smooth vaulted ceilings. The rental includes a deck, a backyard, and an attached garage, too. Only dogs are allowed; no cats. Transit’s a bit of a hike, with a 10-15 minute walk to a bus, but it’s an easy transfer (or 10-minute bike ride, or 40-minute walk) to light rail.

*In all seriousness: We don’t know the exact number of renters in Laurelhurst, and it’s probably more than three.
