Right by Kinnear Park, this two-bedroom apartment in Villa Franca—designed by legendary Seattle builder Fred Anhalt—serves up plenty of vintage delights, with multiple Gothic arches, leaded-glass windows, and original 1920s millwork. It’s pretty big, at nearly 1,200 square feet, and has its own in-unit laundry and large, private balcony.
Both cats and small dogs are allowed. It’s right on the 1 and not far from other transit, including the D Line. Rent is $3,550 a month.
In north Capitol Hill, there’s this boxy, stately late Victorian—a mainstay of this part of the neighborhood, with a high probability of being a former punk house—for $3,495 a month. It has three bedrooms, and plenty of its original features, like leaded glass, cased openings, and built-ins. In addition to the formal living and dining area typical of the era (complete with wood-burning fireplace!) there’s a basement, too, featuring a rec room and laundry facilities. Pets are allowed on a case-by-case basis. It’s about equidistant from the 10 and the 49.
This four-bedroom, four-bathroom house near Lake City and Northgate—renting for $3,500 a month—has a quiet, woodsy vibe. It has plenty of space (3,800 square feet!) spread out over a quirky floorplan that includes lofts, vaulted ceilings, greenhouse-like windows, and a central atrium, plus two fireplaces. The backyard adds to the cabin vibe, with dense woods and a stretch of Thornton Creek, plus a hot tub. Both cats and small-to-medium dogs can come, and plenty of transit’s available on Northgate Way or Roosevelt Way, each within a couple of blocks.
Bonus: It’s equipped with 32 solar panels.
On the north end of Belltown, there’s this fancy, new-construction, two-bedroom, two bathroom apartment renting for $3,535 a month. The spacious 1,062 square feet includes an open kitchen, living room, and dining area; a master bedroom with en-suite bath and large walk-in closet; and stacked washer and dryer. Shared amenities include a dog park, a billiards room, and a clubhouse. It allows most cats and dogs with a whole bunch of pet-related programming, but has breed restrictions. It’s on a major transit corridor and walkable to both downtown and South Lake Union.

Right by Wallingford playfield, this charming three-bedroom Craftsman with an ornamental chimney rents for $3,495 a month. It has lots of cozy original details, like a wood-burning fireplace and coved ceilings. 1,560 square feet means a decent amount of space—plus there’s a garage and a partially-fenced backyard on top of that. It’s just a couple of blocks from the main Wallingford drag on 45th, with amenities and transit.
