What $1,900 rents in Seattle right now

A cute, vintage two-bedroom or a snazzy new one-bedroom?

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: $1,900.

Via Craigslist

Capitol Hill

This two-bedroom apartment in the Summit Arms—right between Pike and Pine—is renting for $1895 a month. While most of it is carpeted, vintage touches remain otherwise, like radiators, a bay window, moulding, French doors, and even a clawfoot tub. 800 square feet is a decent amount of space to move around in, and pets are allowed with a deposit. There’s no parking (it is, after all, in the transit-rich Capitol Hill, and a short walk from downtown), but the listing points out there’s a pay lot across the street with monthly rates.

Ravenna

Right in the curve of Cowen Park, this early 20th century one-bedroom has 800 square feet all to itself. It’s tucked up into the top floor, with visible ceiling peaks and windows to match—plus what appears to be original hardwoods, some original fixtures, and, yes, a clawfoot tub. Pets are allowed, and it’s close to the 45, 71 and 73 lines. $1,950 in rent includes utilities.

Via Craigslist

Madison Park

Just two blocks from the beach, find this top-floor Tudor Revival one-bedroom with 663 square feet of space available for $1,895 a month. While it still retains most of the vintage design choices—like coved ceilings, exposed-grain moulding, and a kitchen and dining room that closes off from the living room—it’s had some upgrades, like a stacked washer and dryer and new kitchen appliances. Pets are subject to both a deposit and pet rent, but there are no size or breed restrictions. It’s right on the 11 line.

Via Craigslist

Greenlake

Find a more modern home in this one-bedroom apartment in a LEED-silver building a block away from Green Lake Park for $1,930 a month. It doesn’t skimp on size at 704 square feet, and includes conveniences like in-unit laundry, concierge service, and bike storage. The building shares a roof deck with barbecues and a club room with a pool table. Pets are allowed, too. While parking’s available in an attached garage, it’s right on the 26 and 63, too. (We’re guessing the photos are of a model unit.)

Via Craigslist

Lower Queen Anne/Uptown

Just across Aurora from South Lake Union, there’s an 855-square-foot, one-bedroom-plus-den apartment going for $1,888 a month. It has full-sized laundry machines, a good-size kitchen, and a balcony to itself, and it shares a gym, yoga studio, a roof deck, and barbecues with the rest of the building. Pets are allowed with a limit of two. Parking’s available, including electric car charging stations, but it’s centrally located with plentiful transit.
