What $2,500 rents in Seattle right now

Plenty of space to stretch out

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: $2,500.

Queen Anne

This vintage one-bedroom apartment on a Queen Anne hillside offers big views of Alki, Blake Island, the Olympics, and Puget Sound from multiple bay windows, plus a large kitchen and a bedroom with built-in storage. The place is massive for a one-bedroom, at 1,075 square feet, and has real hardwood floors. It’s on Metro route 1, but it comes with parking, too. Rent is $2,495 a month.

Sand Point

Up by Matthews Beach, this two-bedroom, 1,150-square-foot apartment has a long, brick, midcentury-style fireplace and a large balcony, accessible from both the living room and a bedroom. Most finishes are more modern, with an open kitchen that appears to be recently renovated. It comes with one parking spot, but it’s right on the Burke-Gilman for bike commuters or the 75 for transit riders. Rent is $2,550 a month.

Ballard/Crown Hill

On the north end of Loyal Heights, this 1,500-square-foot two-bedroom house—a kind of duplex, with a one-bedroom ADU in the basement—rents for $2,500 on the dot, which includes cable and internet. It has a huge kitchen, a large back deck, and half a second story with attic ceilings has two bonus rooms on top of the bedrooms. The two units share garage storage and basement laundry. It has all that cute Craftsman house stuff, too, like hardwood floors and subtle millwork. There’s parking, or it’s a few blocks from the 15 and D Line.

South Lake Union/Westlake

Right as South Lake Union curves up Westlake Avenue, this one-bedroom plus den with a private patio rents for $2,485 a month. Like most newer buildings in the area, the amenities are... kind of a lot: the rooftop patio has turf areas with lawn games and there’s a bowling alley at the entrance. In the unit itself, there’s in-unit laundry and 730 square feet. Pets can come, and it’s right near transit and the cycle track, although parking in an attached garage is available.

Capitol Hill

Go for a unique Tudor vibe in this one-bedroom, Fred Anhalt designed vintage apartment on the east side of Capitol Hill for $2,550 a month. It’s a top-floor, corner unit, with leaded-glass windows and pockets of vaulted ceilings, plus modern features like in-unit laundry and newer kitchen appliances. In addition to a full, normal bedroom, two lofts add extra space. It’s right off the 10, 8, and 43, but there’s parking available for extra. Pets can come, too.
